Second Book of the Tao

In my spiritual library, I got The Second Book of the Tao interpreted by Stephen Mitchell.

(Thank you, tings-tang for the recommendation!)

So far, the book has been really low-key.... like everything is one energy..... which is a hard message for me to process because I feel emotional right now.

Your welcome for the recommendation. Hopefully some small part of it will help you on your Path.

One thing I find about books like that, is many times you have to read them more then once. I have to admit I got very little out of the Tao Te Ching the first time I read it, but now that I am in a different place on my Path, it is really starting to speak to me.

I also read books like that in very small increments. I read one page or one chapter a day and then mull it over and think about it. Not trying to take it all in at once.

Give yourself time.
