Place the word Tao
Into your heart.
Use no other words.

The Tao is constantly moving, the path that all life and the whole universe takes. There is nothing that is not part of it—harmonious living is to know and to move with the Tao—it is a way of life, the natural order of things, a force that flows through all life.

365 Tao is a contemporary book of meditations on what it means to be wholly a part of the Taoist way, and thus to be completely in harmony with oneself and the surrounding world.

Deng Ming-Dao is the author of eight books, including The Living I Ching, Chronicles of Tao, Everyday Tao, and Scholar Warrior. His books have been translated into fifteen languages. He studied qigong, philosophy, meditation, and internal martial arts with Taoist master Kwan Saihung for thirteen years, and with two other masters before that.

I read the translated version of the book - in Latvian. It helps to learn to look at things from the Taoist view which is quite different from average western people views. Accepting the philosophy of Tao replaces beliefs and changes the habits. I found this book to be one of the most important teachings that reverses depressive thoughts, encourages to rely on your own senses, helps to choose vise tactics, and overall inspiring trove of wisdom.
