Discover a more natural way of being in the world, inspired by the ways of nature. This beautiful interpretation of the Tao te Ching presents timeless wisdom about nature and the human journey. Capturing its original poetic style, this compilation draws from the many ancient sages who studied it. Celebrating what is timeless and valuable about existence, the second section of this book includes a collection of ancient Taoist poetry. "When you lose your place in the world, you need only return to stillness. Through stillness, you return to the Way." Find out why "those who go against the Way end up being called unlucky." Only when you turn back, can you discover peace in existence. "The Way is the refuge for the myriad creatures. Experience shapes them; circumstances bring them maturity." Just as the seed sheds its protective covering before becoming a great oak, experience peels away the layers that keep you from actualizing your destiny.
