Activists Tao Te Ching

Activists Tao Te Ching
$14.00
"[An] inspiration."
-- Alice Walker, The New York Times Book Review

Change and anger are in the air. Looking for answers to today's wrenching challenges, William Martin turns to the Tao Te Ching and finds that while Taoism is known for its quiet, enigmatic wisdom, the Tao can also have the cleansing force of a rushing river.

Through his interpretation of this ancient Chinese text, Martin elucidates revolutionary messages condemning power-seeking and greed. He emphasizes that humans have a "natural virtue" that can help them heal the planet; shows how Taoism's simplicity can be subversive and its flexibility a potent force; and reassures that "when injustice is the rule, justice always lies in wait."

Provocative and stirring, Martin's Tao flows within and through those who ride the waves of anger and frustration and gently guides them to true freedom.


"We have learned the secret of transformation: Injustice feeds our determination. Hate increases our love. Wounds bring forth our healing, and fear uncovers our courage and serenity."
-- from The Activist's Tao Te Ching
