Now the #1 I Ching app in the world for iPhone, iPad, & Android. On its surface, the I Ching is merely a book. It is a very old book — one that has survived for thousands and thousands of years in many different forms — but it is just a book. It is also a very wise book — it is regarded as the foundation text of Chinese wisdom and philosophy, and was instrumental to sages such as Confucius, whose education and teachings were formed by it — but it is just a book.
Beneath the surface, however, the Book of Changes is more than just a book. It is a living, breathing oracle, a patient and all-seeing teacher who can be relied upon for flawless advice at every turning point in our lives. Those who approach the I Ching sincerely, consult it regularly, and embody in their lives the lessons it teaches inevitably experience the greatest riches that life has to offer: prosperity, understanding, and peace of mind.
The Tao te Ching of Lao Tzu is one of the most frequently translated, widely read, and deeply cherished books in the world. It is, to my mind, the wisest book ever written and one of the greatest gifts ever given to humankind. In the handful of pages that make up the Tao te Ching, I believe there is an answer to each of life’s questions, a solution to every predicament, a balm for any wound.
May the teachings find a home in your heart and your life.
Few are aware that a collection of Lao Tzu’s oral teachings on the subject of attaining enlightenment and mastery were also recorded in a book called the Hua Hu Ching (pronounced “wha hoo jing”). The teachings of the Hua Hu Ching are of genuine power and consequence, a road map to the divine realm for ordinary human beings.
“Do you imagine the universe is agitated? Go into the desert at night and look out at the stars. This practice should answer the question.”
This new rendition of “The Art of War” brings Brian Browne Walker’s clear voice to the world’s most time-honored teachings on leadership, strategy, and conflict. The book includes a provocative and powerful commentary on Barack Obama and our time that reminds America and the world of our most pressing moral responsibilities, touches on the perils of modern demagogues, and looks forward with a sense of both gravity and light to a time when war might become the last resort, rather than the principal business, of the land.
