Banyen's Description: 

For readers who are interested in Taoism and want a little daily inspiration, this is a nifty book from the webmaster of www.taoism.net, a leading resource for the Tao on the internet.

The Tao of Daily Life combines ancient Eastern wisdom with practical application—perfect for busy readers! Derek Lin, Taoist master and savvy in Eastern philosophy, brings his deep knowledge of this time-honored Chinese spiritual “being-way” into the 21st century.

There is one simple reason for the Tao to have survived through the ages intact: it works. The principles of the Tao are extremely effective when applied to life. The philosophy as a whole is nothing less than a practical, useful guide to living life in a way that is smooth, peaceful, and full of energy.

The purpose of this book is to present the secret of the Tao in the most accessible way imaginable—via stories. Throughout the history of China, sages and masters have learned and taught the Tao by hearing and telling stories, generation after generation. By taking a journey on the Tao, you have become part of this great oral tradition.

Using the medium of stories and short dharma talks, Lin illuminates the Taoist secrets and engages the reader in their inherent wisdom. As a result, the reader of The Tao of Daily Life will likely notice certain changes, such as being more composed and more at ease in various situations; being able to handle challenges and difficulties with less effort and achieving better results; and experiencing greater power and clarity in all areas of life. Not bad! Lin is a friendly guide…

We simply do not know what happens after death. And since we have no information, why assume anything? Wouldn’t it make far more sense to let go of worry and fear, and free up the energy to live life fully in the present moment?

Also by Derek Lin is The Tao Te Ching: Annotated & Explained.
