When you see Lao-tzu, tell him I could not have said it any better.

Most Excellent HS! I think I may buy this, as the PDF scan seems to have dropped a lot of letters. It's still readable of course, but this has some great stuff in it.

Historian, author, martial artist and podcast host (of both History On Fire and The Drunken Taoist), Daniele Bolelli has a well done, non-literal, non-academic lecture series on Taoism. It's $10 but worth it, imo (even though it sounds like it, I make no money from this).

 

It's in 16 Parts:

 

Personal Qualities

Cosmology

Rationality

Wu Wei

Epistemological Anarchism

Outlaw Morality

Leadership

Elitist

War

Wealth

Tao Is the Shit

Heraclitus

Examples

Alan Watts says this is the follow-up to a previous talk on the Tao; anyone know where to find that audio?  This one is really good:

Thanks Alder , I have not heard from Allan Watts in such a long time. I have forgotten to much.

 I highly suggest downloading  the above . I find this to speak directly to me, expanding my consciousness.

 So much truth it serves to get a person high.

That audio book I embedded in post #5 was taken down.  Someone else has put it back up. 

 

I just got called by the bookstore a few minutes ago to learn that my new copy of that edition with the commentary on the end (which is actually the introduction to that edition) has come in and is waiting for me.  

 

So, here it is again:

"The Way of Heaven is like the drawing of a bow: it brings down what is high and raises what is low.

It is the Way of Heaven to take from those who have too much, and give to those who have too little.

But the way of man is not so. He takes away from those who have too little, to add to his own superabundance.

What man is there that can take of his own superabundance and give it to mankind? Only he who possesses Tao."

Ancient wisdom is so relevant today. This should be taught by parents to their children. Having said that , I am going to buy some more copies to give to the young I know. I will offer them a reward if they can prove they read it . The copies cost around $2 but the wisdom is beyond measure.

I could see some people saying this ancient wisdom is political others spiritual. The truth is often considered subversive and dangerous to some groups especially societies elite.

I enjoy
