Read full description of the books:
This book is TRULY amazing. There are so many wonderful sayings compiled into this treasure-trove by Stephen Mitchell. I am so glad that he decided to come out with The Second Book of the Tao - because it sheds some new light on the Tao te Ching-a-ling.
Some profound insights that I gathered from this book:
1. We are close to waking up when we dream that we are dreaming.
2. We're all doing the best we can with what we've been given.
3. Become like the ocean: though there are waves on its surface, in its depths there is perfect calm.
4. Receive what you have been given and know that it is always enough.
5. Walk through life as though you didn't exist.
6. Reality happens from the inside out.
7. Life becomes very gentle when you understand that you're not living it.
Anyways, a good read. Enjoy the wisdom.

Read information about the authorStephen Mitchell was educated at Amherst College, the Sorbonne, and Yale University, and de-educated through intensive Zen practice. He is widely known for his ability to make old classics thrillingly new, to step in where many have tried before and to create versions that are definitive for our time. His many books include The Gospel According to Jesus, The Second Book of the Tao, two books of fiction, and a book of poetry.
Mitchell’s Selected Poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke has been called “the most beautiful group of poetic translations [the twentieth] century has produced.” William Arrowsmith said that his Sonnets to Orpheus “instantly makes every other rendering obsolete.” His Book of Job has been called “magnificent.” His bestselling Tao Te Ching, Bhagavad Gita, and Gilgamesh—which are not translations from the original text, but rather poetic interpretations that use existing translations into Western languages as their starting point—have also been highly praised by critics, scholars, and common readers. Gilgamesh was Editor’s Choice of The New York Times Book Review, was selected as the Book Sense 2004 Highlight for Poetry, was a finalist for the first annual Quill Award in poetry. His translation of the Iliad was chosen as one of the New Yorker’s favorite books of 2011. He is a two-time winner of the Harold Morton Landon Translation Award from the Academy of American Poets.
His books for young readers include The Wishing Bone, winner of the Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award as the best book of poetry for children published in the United States in 2003, and Jesus: What He Really Said and Did, which was chosen by the American Library Association’s Booklist as one of the top ten religious books for children in 2002.
He is also coauthor of two of his wife Byron Katie’s bestselling books: Loving What Is and A Thousand Names for Joy. www.thework.com
