Synopsis: A new interpretation of the Tao Te Ching, this book is a celebration of the Way of Harmony and Balance.
Ray Grigg transforms what has been traditionally called the Tao Te Ching, what he calls the Lao Tzu, from the mysterious to the meaningful. He accomplishes this by abandoning the historical convention of a literal reading of the Chinese texts. The result is a poetic expression of ancient wisdom in a language that readers can approach directly.
The wisdom of the Lao Tzu rests in its ability to tease confusion into insight that is beyond the confinement of intellectual understanding. Beautifully illustrated with ink drawings by Bill Gaetz, The New Lao Tzu demonstrates that living the wisdom of the Lao Tzu requires more instinct than reason, more intuition than argument.
Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: Perfection is imperfect,
so the world remains vital.
Fullness is empty
so the source remains boundless.
The straightest course wanders;
The best teaching confuses;
And the greatest eloquence is wordless.
In the cold of winter,
In the heat of summer,
So the sage balances
the opposites of the world
By moving with an inner stillness.
When the Tao is followed,
the war-horses plough fields;
When the Tao is not followed,
the war-horses ravage countrysides.
The greatest misfortune
The greatest burden
The greatest curse
Only those who know
when enough is enough
Will ever have enough.
Without gazing out a window,
the way of the world can be seen.
Without stepping beyond a door,
the way of the Tao can be followed.
The Way does not get closer
by searching farther.
The sage keeps to the beginning
to discover the end.
Learning consists of filling;
Following the Tao consists of emptying.
So the sage does less and less
until nothing is done.
When things are doing themselves,
nothing is left undone.
To live harmoniously
in the world,
Let the world do itself.
the sage becomes one with others.
And with an inner emptiness,
people are received as they are.
The good and the bad
So acceptance is nourished.
The honest and the dishonest
So trust is nourished.
the sage receives the world as it is.
And with an inner stillness,
becomes one with the wholeness of all.
