    Great introductory book on Daoist philosophy. Reader should be familiar with Daodejing for best experience.

    "Lao Tzu said: Consider the world light, and the spirit is not burdened; consider myriad things slight, and the mind is not confused. Consider life and death equal, and the intellect is not afraid; consider change as sameness, and clarity is not obscured." This and other beautiful insights populate this slim, easy to read book, that I refer to over and over again and most particularly when I feel rushed and under pressure, to remind myself of the exhortation to be still. To stop. Let things go. B "Lao Tzu said: Consider the world light, and the spirit is not burdened; consider myriad things slight, and the mind is not confused.

    Recently I have enjoyed reading about the spiritualism of Tao, but this book was either beyond me, or maybe I just wasn't in the mood.
