Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life: Living the Wisdom of the Tao | [Dr. Wayne W. Dyer]

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."

    "More of the same dribble"

    I always think it's nice to listen to something motivational while driving along. Except in this case. Pretty much the name says everything you know. I couldn't listen through it all. Done with great arrogance, as if he has the universal secret to share - but says the same thing you've heard 100 times in a boring way.

    "Confusing"

    I've watched Dr.Dyer on TV and liked him but I found this book very confusing.

    "First Wayne Dyer bad audio for me"

    I wish I could write a good review on this audibook, but instead I am forced (for the first time with Dr. Dyer audio) to give only one star. I was not at peace while listening to this audio book. It is basically an explanation of Dr. Dyer of the Lao-tzu rules of conduct, and perhaps as a christian that did not feel right. Perhaps I am not a very good nez person, perhaps right now I am not in the path to listen to the audio book.

    Story
    "Alternates between the obvious and the absurd."
    What would have made Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life better?

    The inclusion of useful, practical, and revolutionary concepts and practices.


    Has Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    What didn’t you like about Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s performance?

    He sounds a bit disingenuous.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life?

    This is a difficult question to answer as a short description. Edits I'd have made are numerous and nearly constant throughout.

    "On and On and On"

    Dyer appears to believe there weren't enough words in the Tao Te Ching. He rambles on for hours telling us how we should lead our lives. Like many westerners trying to teach eastern philosophies he dumps his enthusiasm on the listener without the subtlety and effectiveness of an good teacher. True insight is not bought by the pound.

    "It makes sense"

    I am a true Dr Wayne Dyer collector. He spreads the same message underneath but in each CD he tries a different way to reach a certain audience. He talks about changing yourself. He places suggestions and thoughts and I find in times of emotional turbulance his voice instantly puts me at ease and puts it all into perspective. He has changed my life.

    "Read one of his books you read them all."

    At most 1 hour of material stretched out over 9 hours.

    Wayne Dyer's interpretations of the Tao Te Ching feel to be on the mark ... a very nice spiritual teaching!
