This is an abridged version of Lao Zi’s Dao De Jing (Schade, 2016), which means--The Way of Nature and the Way of People. Lao Zi was a Chinese philosopher who lived during the 6th century BC but is still ahead of our time. His brilliance outshines intellectual giants such as Confucius, Sun Zi, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. Lao Zi’s aim is to teach success, which is to obtain what you seek and escape what you suffer. Success is achieved by aligning the Way of People with the Way of Nature. Lao Zi’s success is secular and based on competence, rather than devotion. It is about positioning, rather than competing. Lao Zi’s deep understanding of nature and people is crucial for your immediate survival and that of the next generation. We are facing overpopulation, dwindling resources, nuclear warfare, pollution, climate change, etc. We cannot solve those problems with the same way of thinking that is causing them. The brutal reality shows that our way of thinking is failing. Therefore, Lao Zi’s eternal wisdom is the guiding light for our future. Its simplicity reaches peacefully across the boundaries of race, religion, spiritualism, ideology, and science.
