dosent being like the buddha mean you are rejecting the world and its attachments that led to suffering thus bringing your self to a higher place? and the tao is a way to embrace the world for all its bueaty and trying not to change its simple perfection........ so how can one be both?

Actually, to say that a Buddhist "reject" the world and etc to be like Buddha would be, in Buddhist terms, classify as a wrong view. It is not about rejecting, but rather, upon realizing that the world is impermanent, do not attach oneself (nor aversion) to worldy pleasures (or pain), thereby achieving a state of equanimity. In other words, one acknowledges the various stages of passing or change, but not affected by them. As far Taosim, I am unable to elaborate much except that personally, I guess while the major fundamentals may differ from Buddhist teachings, certain cultivation methods may be similar, e.g. to be in a natural state in Taoism may be comparable to what I mentioned regarding Buddhist teachings.
