Change Your Thoughts - Change Your Life Five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, a God-realized being named Lao-tzu in ancient China dictated 81 verses, which are regarded by many as the ultimate commentary on the nature of our existence. The classic text of these verses, called the Tao Te Ching or the Great Way, offers advice and guidance that is balanced, moral, spiritual, and always concerned with working for the good. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has reviewed hundreds of translations of the Tao Te Ching. In this book, he has written 81 distinct essays on how to apply the ancient wisdom of Lao-tzu to today's modern world. This work contains all 81 verses of the Tao, compiled from Wayne's research on ten of the most well-respected translations of the text, which has survived for more than 25 centuries. Each of the 81 chapters is designed for actually living the Tao or the Great Way today and concludes with a section called "Do the Tao Now." Wayne spent one entire year reading, researching, and meditating on Lao-tzu's messages, practicing them each day and ultimately writing down these insights as he felt Lao-tzu wanted you to know them. This is a work to be read slowly, one verse a day. As Wayne says, "This is a book that will forever change the way you look at your life, and the result will be that you'll live in a new world aligned with nature. Writing this book changed me forever, too. I now live in accord with the natural world and feel the greatest sense of peace I've ever experienced. I'm so proud to present this interpretation of the Tao Te Ching, and offer you the same opportunity for change that it has brought me..."..Wayne W. Dyer, Ph.D., is an internationally renowned author and speaker in the field of self-development. He's the author of more than 30 books, has created numerous audio programs and videos, and has appeared on thousands of television and radio shows.
