Understanding Biblical Wisdom Better

TAO: The Way to Biblical Wisdom

Understanding Biblical wisdom may not be as easy as you think: it requires wisdom --  human wisdom to seek knowledge to understand the role of man in this world, such as finding out his self-worth, and his contributions to humanity. Reading the Bible may not lead you anywhere unless you have an open mind, Reading Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, the ancient immortal classic from China, may be the way to understanding Biblical wisdom.

Interestingly enough, both Tao Te Ching and the Bible are among the most translated and extensively read books in the world. There is a fundamental connection between the two books, though some critics may disagree. Tao Te Ching is about human wisdom, and the Bible is about the wisdom of God. The former was written hundreds of years before the New Testament was even conceived. Both books are about wisdom, and true wisdom is universal and timeless, often sharing some common attributes. 

TAO The Way to Biblical Wisdom contains the complete translation of Tao Te Ching in simple English (the original text has only 5,000 words), as well as the essentials of Tao wisdom (which is the profound wisdom of Lao Tzu,  the author of Tao Te Ching). This book also explains the subtle connection between human and Biblical wisdom. 

Even Michael Crichton, the best-selling author and acclaimed film-producer, said in interview with Amazon that if he were stranded on an island the only book he would take with him would be Tao Te Ching. If you have not read Tao Te Ching, it is time you do so.

Better and Happier

True wisdom can make you a better person, and being better may also make you happier. 

Be A Better And Happier You With Tao Wisdom

This 132-page book is based on the profound human wisdom expressed in “Tao Te Ching” written by Lao Tzu, an ancient sage from China. BE A BETTER AND HAPPIER YOU WITH TAO WISDOM not only contains the translation in simple English of the complete text of this 5,000-word immortal classic, but also shows you how to attain true human wisdom through asking self-intuitive questions, creating an empty mindset with reverse thinking to let go of the ego-self to become a better and happier you.

The wisdom of Tao begins with the power of intent in the mind to know and to learn more about the true “self”-- after all, wisdom is about self, and about how it reacts with everyone and everything around. In the quest of wisdom, the revelation of having no ego-self is the turning point, where you may begin to embark on a different life journey with a different mission. Your “conditioned” mind thus begins the journey of “reverse thinking” which will ultimately change your life, making you a better and happier you.

Tao wisdom enables you to see the wisdom in the oneness of all life-that everything exists because of its “opposite” and that everything will ultimately become its opposite, just as youth becoming old age, and life becoming death. Spontaneity, which is following the natural laws of nature, holds the key to attaining true human wisdom to live your life as if everything is a miracle.

BE A BETTER AND HAPPIER YOU WITH TAO WISDOM is made up of three parts.

Part One explains the prerequisites of human wisdom. Without true human wisdom, it is almost impossible to perceive the innate human goodness in self as well as in others. Human goodness leads to the attributes of genuine human happiness.

Part Two is the complete translation of the 81 short chapters of Lao Tzu's "Tao Te Ching" in simple English.

Part Three highlights the essentials of Tao wisdom, and shows how it can be applied to contemporary living so that you may live as if everything is a miracle to be a better and happier you.

The Book of Life and Living

The Bookof Life and Living is a 190-page book on wisdom in living, based on the integration of conventional wisdom, the ancient Tao wisdom from China, and the spiritual wisdom of the Bible. The art of living well is holistic living with balance and harmony of the body, the mind, and the spirit.

Tao wisdom is based on the wisdom of Lao Tzu, the ancient sage from China some 2,600 years ago. Lao Tzu was the author of Tao Te Ching, the immortal classic on human wisdom, which has become one of the most translated works in world literature, probably ranking with the Bible as one of the top ten in popularity.

Without the true human wisdom expressed by Lao Tzu in Tao Te Ching, it would be difficult, if not impossible, to live in this day and age as if everything is a miracle.

Life is short, so make the best and the most out of it now! To do just that, you must know who you are and what life is all about. Most importantly, you must have the wisdom to live your life to the fullest.

Living your life is a learning process. Real learning, however, is not just the acquisition of knowledge. True wisdom is the ability to penetrate deeply into the meaning behind superficial knowledge, to integrate related thoughts, facts, and experiences into a structural framework that reveals a deeper, more synthesized meaning than what an ordinary person perceives.

Wisdom is internal; it comes from the inner self. Focusing on so-called goals in life, many of us lose our true selves in the pursuit of our dreams. If you are one of them, you must re-direct your life. If you wish to re-discover your “new” self, or never want to go back to your “old” life, The Book of Life and Living is right for you.

Now is as good a time as any to live your life on your own terms, instead of someone else’s terms. Now is the time not just to think out of the box, but to create your own box of reverse thinking. The Book of Life and Living was written just for that specific purpose to inspire you with the wisdom in living, based on the conventional wisdom, the ancient wisdom of Tao, and the spiritual wisdom of the Bible. Have an empty mind, and rethink your mind!

Albert Einstein once said: “A human being is part of the whole called by us ‘universe,’ a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts, and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison . . . . ”

One of the objectives of The Book of Life and Living is to free yourself from the self-imprisonment of self-delusions created by your self-consciousness, as pointed out by Albert Einstein. This book not only explains in simple terms and plain language how you may unconsciously create your self-limiting thoughts that prevent you from truly understanding who you really are and what you really want from life, but also shows you how to create a substantially new manner of thinking through the integration of both the conventional and the unconventional ancient wisdom.

Tao Wisdom and Relaxation

Relaxation is anti-aging and holds the key to longevity living. Advancement of medical science has extended human longevity, but modern living has, ironically enough, shortened lifespan. That is to say, humans could have an even much longer lifespan if it were not for the compulsive living in contemporary world. Yes, many of us are living in a pressure cooker that demands most of our time. We wish we had more than 24 hours, but we don't. As a result, we become time-stressed.

Many of us are living in the past or in the future, except in the present. Depression is one of the rampant disorders in contemporary society. People with this mental disorder are often held hostage to their unhappy past, or worries of their future. Depressed people do not live in the present. Those who are time-stressed, do not live in the present, because their minds are forever preoccupied with what will happen in the future. If you talk on the phone while driving, you are one of those time-stressed individuals.

If you are stressed by the past or the future, you are not living in the present. Only those who living in the present live a longer and happier life. To do just that, you need Tao wisdom.

Tao wisdom is based on "Tao Te Ching," which is an ancient classic from China. The book was written thousands of years ago by Lao Tzu, a sage with all white hair (a sign of wisdom). According to the legend, the great philosopher was forced to put down his profound wisdom in writing before he was permitted to leave China for Tibet. Reluctantly, Lao Tzu concisely and succinctly expressed his unique wisdom in eighty-one short chapters with only five thousand words all told. 

As a testament to the significance and timelessness of his eternal wisdom, "Tao Te Ching" has been translated into many languages; as a matter of fact, this ancient classic has become one of the most translated works of world literature.

Tao wisdom in living is to have no ego-self so that you can live in the present. With no ego-self, there is no expectation; with no expectation, you become non-judgmental, which is accepting and embracing the desirable as well as the undesirable in life; with non-judgmental, you appreciate non-doing; with non-doing, you can live in the present and in harmony with nature. So, Tao recommends no ego-self to live a no-stress life with no worry, no expectation, no judgment, and no-overdoing. 

Tao  wisdom is the essence in the art of living well. Tao wisdom is simple but controversial, profound and yet intriguing. Click here to find out more about the essentials of Tao wisdom.

FREE Book for Holistic Weight Loss!

TAO wisdom is all about balance and harmony, which is also a holistic approach to weight loss and management. Download this book  FREE to lose a few extra pounds without any diet or medication!

All-Round Weight Loss
by Stephen Lau

Everybody wants to lose some weight; some even want to lose a lot more. But almost everybody gains back all the pounds that have been lost, and then some.

Why is that? Because weight loss is not just about eating less—after all, everybody wants to eat more, not less. Weight loss is about everything, just as Oprah Winfrey once said: “My greatest failure was in believing that the weight issue was just about weight.” Oprah was right. Weight loss is all-round; that is, it involves the body, the mind, and the spirit. To illustrate, weight loss is also about the thinking mind; it is the thoughts that make you fat, more than anything else. According to Esther and Jerry Hicks' bestseller "Money and the Law of Attraction," people not only want the food but also believe that the food will make them fat, and thus have created that which they do not want; unfortunately, their thoughts attract what they do not want, so their bodies respond to the thinking mind, and gain instead of losing weight.

Therefore, going on a fad diet, abstaining from certain types of food, reducing calorie consumption-all these only contribute to the weight-loss hype that sustains the billion-dollar weight-loss industry. The consumers forever lose in the battle of the bulge.

ALL-ROUND WEIGHT LOSS is holistic weight management in that it covers every aspect of weight loss, beginning with the mind, the body, and then the spirit, to make weight loss natural and permanent. Only holistic weight management guarantees lasting weight loss. Do not waste money on diets, and weight-loss products and programs that do not work. Follow the author's simple but comprehensive holistic approach to wellness and weight management. Remember, if you are healthy in body, mind, and soul, you will not have any weight problem.
