MY WAY! NO WAY! TAO IS THE WAY!
TAO is neither a religion nor a philosophy.
TAO is simply a way of life about the Way of life, that is, a general way of thinking about everything in life. It is a pathless path of humanity to live as if everything is a miracle.
TAO is the Way through anything and everything in life in order to fully experience them and live in balance and harmony. TAO is not about avoiding or getting out of anything unhappy and undesirable in everyday life, such as depression; rather, it is about going through depression by experiencing every aspect of it in order to become enlightened, if possible, with the profound human wisdom to continue living in peace and harmony in a world of depression.
TAO is looking at life not as a series of both happy and unhappy episodes, but simply as a journey of self-discovery and self-awakening to the real meaning of life existence. You are defined not by your words and thoughts, but by the ways you act and react, as well as the impact you may have on others around you. You exist not because you are simply here; you are here in this world to love and to learn how to live, as well as to help one another do the same.
TAO is formless, shapeless, and inexplicable in words; after all, it had existed long before there were even words. TAO is infinite human wisdom, which is a pathless path to the infinity and the origin of all things.
TAO is not about making your life any easier; it is about acceptance of all aspects of your humanity that need to be fully experienced, embraced, and then to be let go of in order to become wholesome at other times of your life and living-that is the essence of TAO wisdom, which is true enlightenment of the human mind.
Living in a world of depression, you might want every-thing your way or no way. But TAO is the Way through your depression, enabling you to understand how why you might have your depression in the first place.
Live a life free from the shackles of depressive and devastating emotions.
TAO: THE WAY TO BIBLICAL WISDOM
Human happiness has much to do with wisdom. Without happiness, life is meaningless. Accordingly, it is human nature to seek happiness through any means. Without wisdom, however, the quest for happiness is forever evasive and unattainable.
Tao Te Ching -- the ancient Chinese classic on human wisdom written by the ancient sage Lao Tzu some 2,600 years ago -- and the Holy Bible are among the most translated and extensively read books of all time, and for a good reason too: they show the essence of human and divine wisdom.
True human wisdom is an understanding of the nature of things and how they work in real life, as well as how the human mind functions. According to Lao Tzu, wisdom has little to do with intelligence or accumulation of knowledge; true human wisdom is “reverse” thinking, which is the opposite of the characteristic “conditioned” thinking of the contemporary human mind.
TAO: The Way to Biblical Wisdom, a publication by Stephen Lau, is based on his belief that Lao Tzu's masterpiece is about the Creator of the universe, and that only true human wisdom can enable man to see the mysteries, and not just the manifestations, of His creation. The profound wisdom of Lao Tzu provides the Way to understanding the spiritual wisdom expressed in the Bible.

TAO: The Way to Biblical Wisdom is divided into four parts.
Part One is about the reasons for writing the book, and the background of Tao Te Ching.
Part Two is a translation of all the eighty-one short chapters of Tao Te Ching with each chapter followed by some selected Bible verses for further reflection on what Lao Tzu has said.
Part Three is about the essentials of Tao wisdom with detailed explanation in simple language and everyday life examples to help the reader understand the eternal wisdom of Lao Tzu.
Part Four is an explanation of how Tao wisdom may help the reader understand God's wisdom in the Bible. Tao is the Way to Biblical wisdom.
To understand any wisdom, we need to understand ourselves first. This is why true human wisdom holds the key to knowing who we are, and what we need. Understanding true self helps us understand the nature of all things. Understanding the natural laws of this world helps us understand our difficulties and frustrations in life. True wisdom is awareness of self, of others, and the world around that may lead to enlightenment, which is the distillation of wisdom in order to discern what is real and what is illusory. Without the human wisdom expressed in Tao Te Ching, understanding Biblical wisdom may be difficult for many of us.

THE BOOK OF LIFE AND LIVING
Life is living, and living is a learning process. Life is short; so make the best and the most of it by learning how to live your greatest life ever!
The Book of Life and Living shows you how to use the mental integration of related thoughts, facts, and experiences into a structural framework that reveals a deeper, more synthesized meaning than what an ordinary person perceives. Wisdom is internal; it comes from the inner self.
Focusing on our so-called goals in life, many of us may lose our true selves in the pursuit of our dreams. If you are one of them, you must redirect your life. If you wish to discover your "new" self, or never want to go back to your "old" life, The Book of Life and Living may be right for you.
Now is as good a time as any to live your life on your own terms, instead of those of someone else. Now is the time not just to think out of the box, but also to create your own box of thinking. The Book of Life and Living was written just for that specific purpose to inspire you with the ancient wisdom, the contemporary wisdom, and the spiritual wisdom in the art of living well.
Albert Einstein once said: "A human being is part of the whole called by us the 'universe,' a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts, and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison."
One of the objectives of The Book of Life and Living is to free yourself from the self-imprisonment of self-delusions created by our self-consciousness, as pointed out by Albert Einstein. This book not only explains in simple terms and plain language how you may have unconsciously created your self-limiting thoughts that prevent you from truly understanding who you are and what you really want from life, but also shows you how to create a substantially new manner of thinking through the integration of both the conventional wisdom of the West and the ancient wisdom from China.
This 200-page book is full of wisdom based on the author's extensive research and personal experience. In this book, you will learn the following:
(1) Eliminating unproductive thoughts, and overcoming chaotic struggles in your inner world and outer life to enhance your health and performance, to overcome your stress, and to deepen your appreciation of life.
(2) Understanding the essentials of contemporary wisdom and ancient wisdom to help you contemplate and internalize their respective meanings and values in your current daily life
(3) Harnessing your mind power to operate your mind to integrate the acquired knowledge into your daily activities
The Book of Life and Living is the wisdom in the art of living well.
Just look at the Table of Contents of the book to see the extensive coverage of the book in every aspect of conventional wisdom, spiritual wisdom, and the ancient wisdom of Tao. It has everything you need to know to live your life in this contemporary world. The book is a blueprint for healthy holistic living for the body, the mind, and the spirit.

AS IF EVERYTHING IS A MIRACLE
Albert Einstein once said: "There are only two ways to live your life. One is as if nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is a miracle."
Life is a miracle; even your breath is a miracle in itself. To live your life as if everything is a miracle, you need wisdom of the body, the mind, and the soul.
The body perceives all sensations and experiences in the physical world. The mind interprets and registers them in the subconscious mind, which controls the conscious mind in its daily life choices and decisions, resulting in actions, non-actions, and reactions of the body in the physical world. The soul feeds the mind with spirituality that provides connection and inter-connection with others through empathy and compassion, gratitude and generosity, as well as love and forgiveness. The body, the mind, and the soul-all play a pivotal role in wisdom in contemporary living. The essence of this wisdom is their “alignment” with one another for balance and harmony in the being of an individual.
Having said that, living in the physical world, the body can easily become toxic, and its toxins may contaminate the mind due to the scientifically proven body-mind connection. A toxic mind is filled with toxic thoughts and memories, which result in toxic choices and decisions that further exacerbate the toxic body with its toxic actions, reactions, and behaviors in the physical world. The spiritual guidance of the soul is often ignored by a toxic mind.
You mind provides the road map for your body to go on your life journey, and your soul is the compass; without the compass and road map, you are going nowhere, and then you will live your life as if nothing is a miracle.
This 125-page book provides information on how you can rethink your mind, renew your body, and reconnect your soul for alignment of your being to live your life as if everything is a miracle. Click here to your Kindle digital copy from Amazon, and here for your paperback edition.
BE A BETTER AND HAPPIER YOU WITH TAO WISDOM
This 132-page book is based on the profound human wisdom expressed in “Tao Te Ching” written by Lao Tzu, an ancient sage from China. BE A BETTER AND HAPPIER YOU WITH TAO WISDOM not only contains the translation in simple English of the complete text of this 5,000-word immortal classic, but also shows you how to attain true human wisdom through asking self-intuitive questions, creating an empty mindset with reverse thinking to let go of the ego-self to become a better and happier you.
The wisdom of Tao begins with the power of intent in the mind to know and to learn more about the true “self”-- after all, wisdom is about self, and about how it reacts with everyone and everything around. In the quest of wisdom, the revelation of having no ego-self is the turning point, where you may begin to embark on a different life journey with a different mission. Your “conditioned” mind thus begins the journey of “reverse thinking” which will ultimately change your life, making you a better and happier you.
Tao wisdom enables you to see the wisdom in the oneness of all life-that everything exists because of its “opposite” and that everything will ultimately become its opposite, just as youth becoming old age, and life becoming death. Spontaneity, which is following the natural laws of nature, holds the key to attaining true human wisdom to live your life as if everything is a miracle.
BE A BETTER AND HAPPIER YOU WITH TAO WISDOM is made up of three parts.
Part One explains the prerequisites of human wisdom. Without true human wisdom, it is almost impossible to perceive the innate human goodness in self as well as in others. Human goodness leads to the attributes of genuine human happiness.
Part Two is the complete translation of the 81 short chapters of Lao Tzu's "Tao Te Ching" in simple English.
Part Three highlights the essentials of Tao wisdom, and shows how it can be applied to contemporary living so that you may live as if everything is a miracle to be a better and happier you.

NO EGO NO STRESS
This book is made up of 4 parts.
PART ONE An Introduction to Stress:
It explains how and where stress comes from; the damage and devastation of stress to human health.
PART TWO Conventional Wisdom:
The major life stressors come from career, money, relationship, adversity, and time. Conventional wisdom offers many strategies for stress relief, such as exercise, herbs, medications, meditation, and psychotherapies, among many others. Conventional wisdom may reduce stress levels, but it does not eradicate stress completely. Conventional wisdom only complements the ancient Tao wisdom for ultimate stress relief.
PART THREE Tao Wisdom:
This part not only explains what Tao wisdom is all about, but also contains the complete translation in simple English of all the 81 short chapters of “Tao Te Ching.” Going through the whole script, interpreted and translated by the author, will enable you to understand the essentials of Tao wisdom for stress-free contemporary living.
PART FOUR No Ego No Stress:
Stress originates from the human mind: how it perceives and processes life experiences. What is stress to one individual may not be stress to another. This part explains in detail how having no ego-self can eradicate stress related to career, relationship, money, adversity, and time.
No Ego No Stress is available in electronic version and in paper back.
YOU JUST DON'T DIE!
This 154-page book is more than just about how to live to a ripe old age; it is about how to live as if everything is a miracle even though you may have many life changes and challenges as you plod along your life journey towards your final destination. You need consciousness of the body, the mind, and the soul to live a meaningful and purposeful life, if you just don't die! Live in the now, and live as if there is no tomorrow, and tomorrow is just another day, if you just don't die!
Human existence is meaningless without life purpose and human happiness. The pursuit of longevity has been going on since time immemorial. Consciousness holds the key to the success of this pursuit. Consciousness is wisdom of the mind to understand self, others, as well as how and why certain things happen. Wisdom is the capability to ask self-intuitive questions along the life journey.
To live to 100 and beyond -- if you just don’t die -- you must ask questions about life; after all, living is about asking questions and seeking answers to the questions asked, and thereby instrumental in providing wisdom or a blueprint to continue the rest of your life journey.
The first question you should consciously ask yourself is: "How long do I wish to live?" Of course, that is only a hypothetical question because you really don’t have much of a choice -- unless you would like to purposely end your life prematurely. Naturally, the answer to that question may also change over different phases in your life, depending on the quality of your life in that particular phase.
The second question you should consciously ask yourself is: "Why do I want to live long, or why not?" This question will be naturally followed by the third question: “How do I live long, or what can make me desire to live longer?”
The final question -- if you just don’t die -- is: "How should I live the rest of my life to overcome my daily problems and life challenges?"
The objective of this book is neither to convince you to crave longevity, nor to show you how to live to one hundred and beyond. It simply presents you with the consciousness of living the rest of your years as if everything is a miracle, if you just don’t die!
