It is written in a modern style using the pop music of Kenny Loggins, Bruce Springsteen, and David Gates to illustrate the points. The purpose of this essay is to serve as a companion to the Tao Te Ching. It is for those who wish to dive deeper into the essence of the Tao while living in the modern world.
It also shows how, after all these years, the Tao is just as relevant today as it was when it was written. It offers an interesting and unique look at one of the most important text of mankind.
"You've got to learn to live with what you can't rise above." - Bruce Springsteen
"Cause when you're done with this world, you know the next is up to you." - John Mayer
"All my life has been a struggle in trying to get free. But this world I created turned out to be only about me. Forgetting we are brothers." - Kenny Loggins
"The mystery of life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced." - Soren Kierkegaard
Truth - "Truth is within ourselves; it takes no rise from outward things, whatever you may believe. There is an inmost center in us all, where truth abides in fullness."
Love - "Now is the moment to dive as deep as your dream. Love is the greatest freedom when you love a courageous person. It allows for an entirely different experience of life than the freedom of journeying alone. Wherever you are, you know you are loved, not only by God, but by a mirror of yourself." - Kenny Loggins
Innerconnectedness of life - "All my life has been a struggle in trying to get free. But this world I created turned out to be only about me. Forgetting we are brothers." - Kenny Loggins

Tao?

An ok book and ok narration illustrated with lyrics from songs by Kenny logins and Bruce Springsteen.
It isn't directly about Taoism, in my opinion, but it is a reminder to lead an altruistic and thoughtful life and is presented in a "Kindly" way.
