A Personal Tao is a Taoist book about living in the modern world. It’s about how to apply Taoist ideals simply and modestly one day at a time.
Living as a Taoist in western society isn’t easy. Modern society is almost the opposite of Taoism. The modern consumer culture is unkind, judgmental and all about living in excess. This book of Taoism is also my story on finding a balance between Taoism and Western Society.
As a Taoist, I always stood out quietly, with kindness, living uniquely in my own story, refusing to be defined by cultural norms. Not every Taoist will agree with my path or my interpretation which is great. The Tao is undefined and unique for each person. In part, I wrote the book to put into words my Taoist practice. In part, I wrote the book to help show others angles in how to change their path in life.
For the reader it isn’t about what my path was about, the book is written to help give you clues on how to make your path, yours.
