Banyen's Description: 

In
China
, 500 years before the birth of Jesus, a high being known as Lao Tzu (“the old fellow”) dictated 81 verses, which are regarded by many as the ultimate commentary on the nature of our existence. The text of these 81 verses, called the Tao Te Ching or the Great Way, offers advice and guidance that is balanced, moral, spiritual, and always concerned with working for the good.

In Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life, inspirational teacher Wayne Dyer has reviewed hundreds of translations of the Tao Te Ching—one of the most translated books in the world—and has written 81 essays on how to apply Lao Tzu’s vision to our modern world. Included are all 81 verses of the Tao, compiled from
Wayne
’s researching of 12 of the most-respected translations. Each chapter is designed for actually living the Tao or the Great Way today. Some of the chapter titles are “Living with Flexibility,” “Living Without Enemies,” and “Living by Letting Go.” Each of the 81 brief chapters focuses on living the Tao and concludes with an exercise called “Doing the Tao Now” to bring that particular teaching to life.

He who keeps the Tao does not want to be full, but precisely because he is never full, he can remain like a hidden sprout and does not rush to early ripening.

Dyer spent a year (on Maui!) reading, researching, and meditating on Lao Tzu’s messages, feeling into and practicing them each day and then writing these essays. This is a work to be read slowly, one essay a day.

Set this book down right now. Take ten minutes to sit quietly while contemplating all that you have and all that is flowing into your life on a Divinely orchestrated timetable. Be at peace and give thanks for what is allowing your life to unfold so perfectly. Let go of all other hurried thoughts.

Also available is Change Your Thoughts Meditations: Do the Tao Now! CD as well as Living the Wisdom of the Tao, which includes the text of the Tao Te Ching plus Dyer’s affirmations for each verse.

 

 

 

 

 

Publisher’s Description: 

Five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, a God-realized being named Lao-tzu in ancient China dictated 81 verses, which are regarded by many as the ultimate commentary on the nature of our existence. The classic text of these 81 verses, called the Tao Te Ching or the Great Way, offers advice and guidance that is balanced, moral, spiritual, and always concerned with working for the good.

In this book, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has reviewed hundreds of translations of the Tao Te Ching and has written 81 distinct essays on how to apply the ancient wisdom of Lao-tzu to todays modern world. This work contains the entire 81 verses of the Tao, compiled from Waynes researching of 10 of the most well-respected translations of text that have survived for more than 25 centuries. Each chapter is designed for actually living the Tao or the Great Way today. Some of the chapter titles are Living with Flexibility, Living Without Enemies, and Living by Letting Go. Each of the 81 brief chapters focuses on living the Tao and concludes with a section called Doing the Tao Now.

Wayne spent one entire year reading, researching, and meditating on Lao-tzus messages, practicing them each day and ultimately writing down these essays as he felt Lao-tzu wanted you to know them.

This is a work to be read slowly, one essay a day. As Wayne says, This is a book that will forever change the way you look at your life, and the result will be that youll live in a new world aligned with nature. Writing this book changed me forever, too. I now live in accord with the natural world and feel the greatest sense of peace Ive ever experienced. Im so proud to present this interpretation of the Tao Te Ching, and offer the same opportunity for change that it has brought me.
