'Taoists say that we must learn to observe with the mind and think with the heart. In the West we get caught up in the monkey mind of our ego. We think we can control our individual destinies by swimming upstream against the current, but we are mistaken. When we learn to quiet the monkey mind with meditation practices, we are able to go beyond the linear thinking of the upper brain and connect to the multidimensional thinking of supreme consciousness in the heart center. Master Mantak Chia and William Wei present techniques to help us learn to move beyond the limits of time and space to connect with the universal truth within --without striving. Living in the Tao is effortless. Just as a small seed grows into a mighty tree with a little water and a little sunshine every day, a few minutes of Taoist practice each day can transform your life into one of peace and joy.' --from back cover.

The Tao of Elvis, Rosen, David
4 The Tao of Elvis Rosen, David
Paperback. Brand-new 1st softcover printing 2002 Harvest / Harcourt. Superclean; no marks or creases; pages bright; binding tight; never read. Gift-giving condition. 200 pages; Notes; Bibliography. Language: English. 'Elvis Presley was an intensely spiritual man. Gospel was his music of choice, and his life --from innocence to addiction, from obscurity to fame, from Hound Dog to Love Me Tender --was one long quest to balance opposites. The Tao of Elvis is the first attempt to illustrate Elvis's Taoist nature and interpret his never-ending search for purpose and meaning. Highlighting Elvis's journey from light into dark, Jungian expert and Elvis scholar David Rosen explores and examines his life through the structure of the Tao Te Ching. In reflections on 42 Taoist concepts--one for each year of Elvis's life--Rosen reveals how the Tao, a mysterious force, was and is operating through America's king. Like the Tao, Elvis is everywhere.'--from back cover. Keywords: popular culture, music, spirituality.
