Book Description

If you have felt a need to connect to something greater than yourself ... a longing to find meaning to life ... a yearning to discover a sanctuary of serenity and peace ... a hunger to have your heart and soul touched by that Divine love that brings comfort to life ... a passionate desire to have a closer relationship with your creator, then the Tao Te Ching is for you.
The Tao Te Ching provides an intuitive insight into the art of living an authentic life, and introduces you to the laws of nature on how to live in this world in peace and joy. With a knowing of the Tao Te Ching, you will see resistance and opposition fade away. Conflict and stress will become distant memories. The issues of life become irrelevant or will simply disappear once you start living your authentic self with the Tao. The Tao shows how to transcend all those insurmountable obstacles that the ego has created.
The Tao contains the power to liberate you from the ego-imposed prison of the dualistic world. Living in the Tao can bring a deep inner peace and a reconnection to the divine source. The wisdom of the Tao is in a practical sense, a way to live life with the clarity of knowing the universal truth.
The Tao is an ancient philosophy of living in the natural world. It shows the way of how to get back to being your Authentic Self, your Spiritual Self. The Tao has the power to help you reclaim your life from the temporal ego identity that is imprisoning you. With the Tao you can discover your Authentic Identity. You can get back to the being-ness and oneness of living in the Divine Consciousness by learning the truths of the Tao Te Ching.
Through discovering these truths you can become the creators of your own universe instead of being the passive observer that you have been. You can learn to live a fuller life in the infinity of the moment verses living in the clutches of the Ego. The Tao can show you how to grow detached from the ego identity by becoming in direct contact with your true intent and motives that was meant for you. When you do, you begin to see yourself as you truly are. It is being authentic that you become reconnected to the divine source.
The Tao Te Ching will show you how to develop a more rewarding spiritual experience and obtain a higher sense of awareness through connecting with the Divine Source, and help you realize that the Power is within you to achieve this.
It makes no difference what your religious background or beliefs are, the teachings of the Tao Te Ching are universal and available to everyone. Following the way of the Tao Te Ching is a spiritual path to finding true joy and ecstasy.

For those who wish to learn more, may I suggest my book, "The Way of the Tao, Living an Authentic Life" This book has several essays on the deeper meaning of the Tao including modern day examples to demostrate the timelessness of the Tao.

More About the Author

Dennis Waller, author of several books, is recognized as an expert on spiritual experience, self-discovery, and exploring the human consciousness. As writer, speaker and philosopher, his teachings invoke an introspective view on how to discover one's true authentic self through a higher sense of consciousness and awareness. He teaches classes in the Dallas area on several subjects including Enochian Magic and Developing Your Psychic Abilities. He is best known for his work in the field of Indigos, people who possess unusual or supernatural abilities. His other fields of expertise include comparative religion, the law of attraction, and interpreting Eastern thought's relevancy to science and quantum physics. He is in demand as a guest speaker on radio programs, a lecturer at churches and life enrichment groups, and conducts workshops for Indigos.
He doesn't like long walks on the beach at night nor does he care for round balloons but does enjoy an occasional butterfly or cricket on a stick but only if served with fries. This bit of non-sense is included to see if you really read these bios. If you have then you will enjoy his sense of humor. Never take life too seriously, you will die someday so make the most of it, go out for an ice-cream, feed the ducks and tell someone you love that you do love them, even if you're mad at them, unless you're really mad like someone I know, then, maybe a phone call would be better.
Now, enough with the non-sense, but really, find a way to enjoy live and love!

5.0 out of 5 stars A profound message that we ALL must absorb!! 18 Dec. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
In this day and age we are always so stressed with our lives, always worried about what others think, and whether or not we are achieving enough. We're expected by society to have a stable relationship and family life and a successful career etc. The pressure from friends, family and society (and ourselves!) can be enormous and overwhelming at times. It's time we put some of those pressures aside and realize that we are placing far to much importance on them - and it may be damaging our mental and physical health!

Tao Te Ching teaches you how to achieve that inner peace and how to free yourself from the shackles of the world, and love yourself for who you really are, and to appreciate the simple pleasures in life. You've got to learn to love yourself and not be too hard on yourself.

I use to succumb to that pressure and let it depress me and get me down - until I discovered Dennis Waller's excellent translations of ancient eastern philosophies, for example "Hsin Hsin Ming", "Nagarjuna's Tree of Wisdom" and of course "Tao Te Ching". I've really absorbed the overall message and my life hasn't been the same since - I've really turned a new leaf and feel much happier, more contented and relaxed with myself and life in general. My family and friends have noticed the difference, and I'm so enthused about it, I am encouraging them to do the same with their lives.

It is so important that these translations be available to us in the West - Dennis Waller's translations are flawless and delivered to us with great clarity, while at the same time retaining the profound meaning and messages of the original texts, and as a result we are able to learn from these ancient teachings of wisdom. It really is astonishing that something so profound is conveyed to us in the form of something as mundane as a kindle ebook. I really can't recommend all the works of this author highly enough!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Waller- a great spiritual guide 4 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tao Te Ching Lao Tzu A Translation by Dennis Waller

A wonderful translation by Waller- a true spiritual soul.

The translation makes this work more accessible to those that may normal find this book simple and light. To the point many may miss the divine and profound words that are essential to spirit, life and the choices we make on our journey. The translation reaches out to more people than the book may normally touch on the path of life.

To comprehend nature and life is a blessing for those that desire inner peace. Leave your ego at the gate and step into this established philosophy, sit and contemplate the true meaning of this perfect work- if you listen, you will hear true whispers.

Waller reveals insight that many may overlook in these magnificent teachings.

Trust in your heart, feel the love of humanity and learn the essence of the Tao.

You might be surprised at what you may find. When the time is right, gifts will be revealed- and this may be the correct time for you.

A truly honest 5***** stars from this great spiritual guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening. A very valuable work. 8 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very welcome modern interpretation of a classic of ancient Chinese wisdom and spirituality. Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, for the beginner, can be quite a daunting read, not readily understood. Dennis Waller has clearly and eloquently presented the original verses in language more suited to the modern reader, preserving the timeless beauty, purity and enlightening wisdom of the original. Take a verse or two each day, read them and meditate on them, absorb their message, and become calmer and more at one with yourself and the universe you are part of. This is the Tao, and here in this book is the Way. Enlightening. A very valuable work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 8 Nov. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
If you are on the path, you have arrived at the Tao in time. And Tao Te Ching Lao Tzu A Translation by Dennis Waller is perhaps the best translation available. I’ve read several of Waller’s works and he seems to be a but of a modern mystic himself. His spiritual awareness and humbleness is inspiring. One of his books, Zen and Tao is among my favorites and if you like this, you should get that one, as well. There is so much wisdom in Tao Te Ching Lao Tzu that it should be read repeatedly and this translation makes that “task” a pleasure. You will find the power of you within these pages, it is a wonderful thing. Very highly recommended, five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully different 5 Nov. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
New to Chinese prose, I heard about Tao Te Ching, so finally decided to give it a chance.
Well, first of all, Dennis Waller's translation must be very good, as the book flows beautifully, poetic, easy to read. It felt authentic. Not familiar with the presented philosophy, I found it subtle and eloquent, full of fascinating messages, very much thought-provoking. The unexpected controversy in the verses gives one the opportunity to think, to decide for oneself, with no preaching involved. A free-thinker, I appreciated that greatly!
A great read in a great translation that I highly recommend!
