Change your thoughts change your life
by Wayne Dyer
If you want to take your time listening to an audiobook that will make you reflect deeply then this is one for you. Are you rushing through your life without reflecting on the impact you made on others or what is the purpose of your life? If you need something to slow you down and put everything in perspective then I found this an excellent book. I’ve listened to it a few times and take something different each time
Here is an overview:
“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 book, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has reviewed hundreds of translations of the Tao Te Ching and has written 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 12 of the most well-respected translations of text that have survived for more than 25 centuries. Each chapter is designed for actually living the Tao or the Great Way today. Some of the chapter titles are “Living with Flexibility,” “Living Without Enemies,” and “Living by Letting Go.” Each of the 81 brief chapters focuses on living the Tao and concludes with a section called “Doing the Tao Now.”
So if you are wanting spiritual and mental stimulation and the chance to reflect then I do recommend dipping into the audio version of change your thoughts change your life. I found it quite a healing balm to read excerpts from it.
