This is a book of guidance for life’s journey rooted in the wisdom of ancient China. Best-selling author Deng Ming-Dao provides key poetic lines that distill the essence of Taoism, organizing them in the form of a journey. The material here is drawn from three sources: The Tao Te Ching, The Yijing, and 300 Tang Poems. Deng Ming-Dao writes: “We walk the Way each day. We don’t know what’s ahead and so it’s helpful to have the wisdom of others to guide us. They have left us a message to encourage us. They have spoken of the joys, griefs, and purity that we should embrace. Like good pathfinders, they give us direction and prepare us for what we might encounter. They let us walk for ourselves. We have a wonderful companion for the journey.” The following lines reflect the inspirational nature of this book: “A good traveler leaves no footprints.” “Think three times, then move.” “Words can be worth a thousand pieces of gold.” “Ancestors plant trees. Descendants enjoy cool shade.” “A journey of one thousand miles begins with a single step.” This is a lovely package that will function as a gift for all occasions and as an object for those looking for daily sustenance on life’s journey.
Breaking The Shackles: Stepping Out of a Lame State of Mind is my tool for ministering to those who are in crippling situations; hopefully, it will be a beacon of hope for...the impotent folk, the blind, the halt, the withered, and those waiting for the moving of the water (John 5:3). Breaking The Shackles is an attempt to delve into the abyss of our helplessness and nothingness to help create an understanding of what it takes to arise from any lame condition. Breaking The Shackles could be considered an access tool, which will allow each of us to assess and access the possibilities of our faithfulness as the key to what it takes to stand firmly in the midst of our storms.
