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."

    "Listen and listen again"

    I imagine I will listen and relisten to this amazing work from time to time for the rest of my life. Every time I hear it, new things stand out. As I grow and change, so do the words spoken here. I am grateful for this work.

    "Do the Tao Now!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I can see my reality being transformed as I practice doing the Tao. This book provides great teachings that are so valuable and guided me to a more peaceful and enjoyable reality.


    What other book might you compare Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life to and why?

    The books by Eckhart Tolle provide teachings along the same lines. One of my favorite is Stillness Speaks.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    One of the teachings is to keep silent when insulted or accused and not react, instead to observe oneself as we are going through this experience. I practiced keeping silent. This was absolutely life transforming.

    "Beautifully written and read!"

    Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life is beautifully written and read by Dr. Wayne Dyer. I was unfamiliar with the Tao before reading/listening to this book, but was incredibly inspired by Dr. Dyer's interpretations. It is a book I will return to again and again thank you Dr. Dyer.

    "A book that grows in strength & power."

    This is one book that has been truly helpful. Nothing in it is new - all the problems people had when the Tao te Ching was written are the same as we face today, which is comforting itself, but more than that it offers a way to be kind and gentle with ourselves and to believe in our essential goodness. Dr. Dwyer has a peaceful, tranquil voice that instills calm and ease on the listener like a long deep refreshing breath!

    "The Daily Verse"

    I have been listening to this book each morning - as instructed. I agree it is best to just listen to one verse at a time - so as soon as I wake I listen and learn - it is so calming and wonderful. I would recommend it not just as an audio book but as a way of life. I have listened to most of it a number of times as much is very relevant and useful to a troubled mind. It is the best audio book I have bought.

    "WD is 'Mr Guru'"

    This is why Wayne is Dr. Wayne. Whilst at times this can get overly philosophical, it is nevertheless a thorough analysis of the Tao. Some true life-changing lessons to be learned here. It can be hard going at times- whilst there is no waffle, it does require much thought and attention. As Wayne implies, let it be as it is.
