    This is a deceptively simple collection of thoughts on Taoism, which is so refreshingly uncluttered with dogmatism as compared to most other books on spirituality religion I ve read in the past that the author nearly could have removed all references to Tao or Taoism from the text without affecting the integrity of the ideas expressed It s such an accessible introduction that even though I read this on a whim and had no previous interest in this philosophy, I know I ll be reading about it now That gets it 4 stars from me, easily The 5th star is because it quite unexpectedly helped me to understand myself better.One realization I had while reading fairly personal. be warned was that in a way, I ve been swimming upstream my entire life whenever I encounter a challenge my response is almost always to just put my head down and power through it, do whatever it takes to resolve it This attitude has helped me to be successful in many ways but also left me a debt of accumulated stress.I know now that I have to learn how to go with the flow not jump at every challenge that presents itself, be prepared for situations rather than simply throwing energy at them as a reflex, seek out alternatives and compromises, and appreciate where I am and not think too much about where I should be Obviously, this book won t trigger such introspective thoughts for everyone, but you never know Read it and find out

    This is a wonderful daily reflection tool for anyone of any or no faith tradition.Here s an excerpt Practice Spiritual practice is gained by daily cultivation If you practiced for the day, then you have won If you were lazy for the day, then you have not.Self cultivation is the heart of spiritual attainment Gaining insight and ability is not a matter of grand statements, dramatic initiations, or sporadic moments of enlightenment Those things are only highlights in a life of consistent activity Whatever system of spirituality you practice, do it every day If it is prayer, then pray every day If it is meditation, then meditate every day If it is exercise, then exercise every day Only then will you be able to say that you are truly practicing spirituality This methodical approach is reassuring in several ways First, it provides you with a process and a means to maintain progress even if that particular day is not inspiring or significant Just to practice is already good Secondly, it gives you a certain faith If you practice every day, it is inevitable that you will gain from it Thirdly, consistent practice gives you a certain satisfaction How can you say to yourself that you have truly entered a spiritual path unless you can look back on years of daily practice and take comfort in the momentum that it has given you

    This is one of my all time favorite go to books for quick centering With literally a different concept for each day of the year, it is concisely written and easily digestible with one page for each concept, including a single word, the Chinese character, a poem and a Taoist principle It is the perfect bite sized collection of Taoist snacks It is amazing how appropriately each concept lines up with each day of the year there is a different calendar for the Northern and Southern hemispheres for example I once used it to make a mix tape of 21 straight days of contemplation and personal growth, every one of which fit the day s theme perfectly I have even read pages from it at weddings An absolute must for any Eastern philosophy religion library.

    I did enjoy setting time aside to read this book sometimes I kept up with it day to day and sometimes I caught up Every page made me think and then not think, whether I agreed or disagreed with the concept metaphors wording.Some pages did occasionally make me roll my eyes for the spiritual personification and writing didn t match my scientific grasp of things, not in a way that I think means I need to transcend science, but that the metaphors needed to be adjusted or reconsidered I suppose that with 365 pages some were bound to not fit quite right.I did tag the pages that really fit with me, though, so I m excited to keep this book nearby and take a look at those pages again through the years.
