The TAO is the ancient wisdom from China, based on the profound wisdom of the ancient sage Lao Tzu. According to the TAO, wisdom comes from the thinking mind, and not the knowledge acquired and accumulated.

On the journey of living longer, you need both a compass and a roadmap.

The compass, to find your direction, and the roadmap to find your whereabouts; the compass is your wisdom, which is unlimited, and the roadmap is your knowledge, which is limited.

Self-intuit all the whys and the hows  of who you are and what you have now become, as well as all the things that have happened to you on your journey.

Click here to get your copy to find out how to harness the TAO on your life journey.
This book explains the paradoxes of life: what "anything is everything" may be true to some people, but not to every one; "everything is nothing" is the reality of life, which is the impermanence of everything; "nothing is everything" is the profound wisdom to understand that the nothingness of everything may ultimately become everything if there is enlightenment in living as if everything is a miracle.

                          Human Wisdom and Spiritual Wisdom

A Frog in a Well

In many ways, many of us are just like a frog in a well, looking up at the limited sky above, in that we see only ourselves, and no one else, and therefore anything is everything to us. In other words, we see only our own needs and desires that have to be fulfilled and gratified no matter how, but without seeing those in others.

Wisdom is the capability of the thinking mind to draw sufficient conclusions from insufficient premises. We never have sufficient data for anything and everything because we are all limited in our capability in acquiring our knowledge.

Wisdom is not quite the same as knowledge: knowledge is the acquisition of facts and information, while wisdom is the application of acquired knowledge to everyday life and living. For this reason, being knowledgeable does not necessarily imply being wise. Wisdom is beyond knowledge.

Human Wisdom

Socrates, the famous Greek philosopher, once said: “An unexamined life is not worth living.”

Wisdom is examining life by frequently asking self-intuitive questions, as well as by finding answers to the questions asked about life and living. In real life, we must frequently ask ourselves many questions about anything and everything at all times.
Asking relevant questions is introspection, which is a continual process of self-reflection, without which there is no self-awareness and hence no personal growth and development. A static life is never a life well lived. So, asking self-intuitive questions is self-empowering wisdom-a life-skill tool necessary for the art of living well.

Why is that?

It is because the kind of questions you ask also determines the kind of life you are going to live. Your questions often trigger a set of mental answers, which may lead to actions or inactions, based on the choices you have made from the answers you have obtained. Remember, your life is always the sum of all the choices you make in the process of going through your life journey.

To make the right daily life choices, you need human wisdom, which is clarity of thinking, to know who you really are, what choices are available to you, and why you decide on those choices.

TAO Wisdom

TAO is the profound human wisdom of Lao Tzu, the ancient sage from China, more than 2,600 years ago, who was the author of the immortal classic Tao Te Ching on human wisdom.

Spiritual Wisdom

Empower your mind with human wisdom to see things as what they really are, instead of as what they are supposed to be or what you wish they were. Before that could happen, however, you must know your real self first, that is, who you really are, and not your ego-self.

True human wisdom is not easy to attain or come by, especially living in this material world, which is a toxic environment. Living in a toxic environment, the human body may easily become contaminated, and thus ultimately infesting the human mind as well, given that the human body and the human mind are somehow interconnected.

An infested human mind often leads to distorted thinking-and that is where spiritual wisdom may play a pivotal role by giving the mind guidance, instruction,  and supervision.

Ask yourself this thinking question: Do I
have a soul or spirit?

If you do not totally live in your body, you do have a soul or spirit. If you do not totally focus on self, you may then also have a glimpse of your soul or spirit.

The next thinking question to ask yourself: What is my soul or spirit?

If you believe in God, your soul is your spiritual connection and communication with Him in the form of your daily prayers, moments of self-awakening, and occasional divine guidance and inspiration.

If you do not have a specific religion, but still believe in the control of a Being greater than yourself, your soul or spirit is your understanding of the unexplainable control and the natural cycle of all things-that is, certain things in life are beyond human control, and certain things follow a natural cycle or order, such as the cycle of the four seasons, and that life is inevitably followed by death.

If you are a non-believer, but still a decent human being, your soul or spirit is your conscience, which intuitively tells you what is right and wrong, and not just merely following the law and order of your country.

Therefore, in several different ways, we may all have a soul or spirit of some sort, although some of us may separate ourselves from it, either consciously or unconsciously. The soul or spirit is like a shadow of ourselves: sometimes we see more of it, and other times we see less of it, but it is always part and parcel of us, following us wherever we go, whether we like it or not.

The role of spiritual wisdom

Your soul may provide you with spiritual wisdom. As opposed to materiality, spirituality is something invisible and immeasurable, but is forever present and lasting. It is like the wind-invisible and yet palpable. It provides guidance, direction, and understanding to the mind. Spirituality may also take the form of love, joy, and peace, and it is often expressed in human actions and behaviors.

Materiality, on the other hand, is always visible, measurable, but is forever transient. Humans need both spirituality and materiality: the former to understand self, and the latter to understand the world and the universe around self. Spirituality not only inspires the mind but also energizes the body-it is a body-mind-soul connection necessary for the miracle of life and living.

Remember, your whole being is composed of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual. Your body-the physical-is controlled by your mind-the mental-and supervised by your soul-the spiritual. In other words, your spirituality oversees your whole being. Nothing transforms you as much as changing from a mundane to a spiritual attitude toward all your everyday life problems. To be spiritual, you must, first of all, look beyond yourself-that is, looking at others, instead of just focusing on yourself, like a frog in a well.
