The Wisdom of No Man Is an Island

To be happier, you must become a better individual. Being better means you see your connection with others as well as with everything else. The truth of the matter is that we are all inter-connected with one another, whether we like it or not; no man is an island. This perspective enables you to diminish your ego-self. With a diminished ego, you become not only a better individual as well as a happier one. An inflated ego prevents you from seeing your true self: who you really are, and not who you think or wish you were.

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 the self 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

Part One of my book 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 for readers to understand the complex and controversial wisdom of “Tao Te Ching.”

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.

To be a better and happier you is both easy and difficult: Tao wisdom is easy to understand with an empty mind, but difficult to assimilate its depth and profoundness
