Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life: Living the Wisdom of the Tao

Five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, a God-realized being named Lao-tzu in ancient China dictated 81 verses, which are regarded by many as the ultimate commentary on the nature of our existence. The classic text of these 81 verses, called the Tao Te Ching or the Great Way, offers advice and guidance that is balanced, moral, spiritual, and always concerned with working for the good.

Publisher's Summary

Five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, a God-realized being named Lao-tzu in ancient China dictated 81 verses, which are regarded by many as the ultimate commentary on the nature of our existence. The classic text of these 81 verses, called the Tao Te Ching or the Great Way, offers advice and guidance that is balanced, moral, spiritual, and always concerned with working for the good.

In this program, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has reviewed hundreds of translations of the Tao Te Ching and has created 81 distinct essays on how to apply the ancient wisdom of Lao-tzu to today's modern world. This work contains the entire 81 verses of the Tao, compiled from Wayne's researching of 10 of the most well-respected translations of text that have survived for more than 25 centuries. As Wayne says, "This is an audiobook that will forever change the way you look at your life, and the result will be that you'll live in a new world aligned with nature. I'm so proud to present this interpretation of the Tao Te Ching, and offer the same opportunity for change that it has brought me."

    "Truth for the Soul"

    This is an awesome depiction and interpretation of the Tao. For me it has served as food for the soul. I listen to this audiobook quite often. The essence of it is powerful and it smoothly helps one to direct one's life. It is a wonderful discourse to help one attain a better understanding of the higher self.

    "Ancient teachings modern insights"

    There is so much wisdom jam packed into this book. It moves really quickly so I recommend listening to it in small bites with some reflection time in between. The effort Dr Dyer went to in order to help modern audiences understand these ancient teachings is palpable. The style in which it is written won't be everyone's cup of tea but there is definitely a wealth of insight here which makes it a worthwhile read regardless.

    "It's a place to start."

    3 out of 5 stars

    The one thing most of us have in common is the need to search for answers. The questions may be different but the need is the same. I can't say that this book answers my questions but it did make me ask new ones. Those new questions made me explore deeper within myself...taking a harder, clearer look at myself. Although I didn't find this book to be particularly deep or any more insightful than other books in this genre it's a place to start.

    "Don't hesitate, add this to your collection"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life to be better than the print version?

    I do think the audio version is better. Hearing the information over and over again is very welcoming to allow it to "set in"


    What did you like best about this story?

    If you put in place the recommendations Wayne Dyer makes in this book, you can truly change your life. Just listening to this book and allowing his words to resonate within you, can literally bring a relaxed feeling while your listening to this book. Real world tools and examples on how to bring balance to your thoughts, your life, your body. I have listened to this book atleast 5 times. I have it on in the background while cleaning the house, driving the car, and walking. Instant calm and resonating Ah Ha! moments follow chapter by chapter. Do the Tao now ;) Love Wayne Dyer, and everything he has written.

    Story
    "Garden variety pantheism"

    According to the intro, the author had an epiphany after reading Chinese spiritual texts. He then fell into a common trap -- mistaking the creation for the creator. Wasn't the book I was expecting.
