Banyen's Description: 

Taoists say that we must learn to observe with the mind and think with the heart. In the West we get caught up in the “monkey mind” of our ego. We mistakenly think we can control our individual destinies by swimming upstream against the current. Living in the Tao teaches that the Tao is the flow of nature, the effortless middle path of self-discovery. When we learn to quiet the monkey mind with meditation practices, we are able to go beyond the linear thinking of the upper brain and connect to the multidimensional thinking of supreme consciousness in the heart center.  We become able to listen within for our inner voice.

We say in the Tao, we have nowhere to go because we are already there. As the Taoists say, “When you climb a mountain and get to the top, you look around and there is another mountain. You climb that mountain and as you get to the top, you look around and there is another mountain.” As you are becoming, there is always more to become. So, it really is not a process of getting anywhere—because there is no where to get to, because you are always becoming something new. You always have to get someplace else. There is no finish line. You will always continually become. You will always be already there and there is no place to go.

In Living in the Tao, Master Mantak Chia and William Wei discuss meditation, diet, exercise, livelihood and sexuality. They present techniques to help us learn to move beyond the limits of time and space to connect with the universal truth within—without striving.

Mantak Chia is the author of over thirty books on the Universal Healing Tao System, including Taoist Secrets of Love. William Wei has taught with Mantak Chia for many years, and is the co-author of Sexual Reflexology.
