Overview


“This book offers you an opportunity to internalize and directly experience the great wisdom of the Tao Te Ching, a collection of verses authored by the Chinese prophet Lao-tzu.

“The words Tao Te Ching translate to ‘living and applying the Great Way.’ Although just 81 short verses, the Tao encourages you to change your life by literally changing the way you think. By reading through the verses presented here (which I’ve pieced together after reviewing hundreds of translations)—along with the corresponding affirmation I’ve created for each verse—you’ll be embarking on a path that encompasses the profound ideas that Lao-tzu intended to convey.

“The Tao Te Ching offers you Divine guidance on virtually every area of human existence. It is a new way of thinking in a world that needs to recapture its ancient teachings. Work with the verses and affirmations regularly and you will come to know the truth behind the ancient Tao observation: When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

    An Esthetically Pleasing Version of the Tao

    If you are searching for an esthetically pleasing version of the classic Tao, this is it. The small book has a nice feel and look to it and its compact size perfect for a meditation area. Dyer presents the Tao Te Ching with corresponding affirmations. For those unfamiliar with the work, the Tao was written over 2500 years ago, by the Chinese scholar Lao-Tzu. Here is the 76th verse: A man is born gentle and weak at his death he is hard and stiff. All things, including grass and tress, are soft and pliable in life dry and brittle in death. Stiffness is thus a companion of death flexibility a companion of life. An army that cannot yield will be defeated. A tree that cannot bend will crack in the wind. The hard and stiff will be broken the soft and supple will prevail. Dyer: 'I choose to be strong by being soft and pliable rather than inflexible, brittle and hard.' By the author of the award winning book, Harmonious Environment: Beautify, Detoxify and Energize Your Life, Your Home and Your Planet.

    fast read

    This book made me not want to put it down. I read more than 2/3 of it the night I got it. It is very short quotes and motivating paragraphs. I think this is a good read for anyone who is interested in lightening your life with some uplifting words of wisdom. This is a book that I will refer back to often, and that I will most likely read way more than one time. It is very mind, body, spirit reading. This would be a great for giving as a gift. I believe you will definitely enjoy this book. It is also good for the price as well.
