Do Nothing And Do Everything: An Illustrated New Taoism
Do Nothing and Do Everything: An Illustrated New Taoism
The power of the Tao has accompanied the author through his journey as pupil during the Chinese Cultural Revolution to professor at an American liberal arts college. In Do Nothing and Do Everything he applies the ideas of Wu Wei (do nothing) and Wu Bu Wei (do everything) to modern life. Do Nothing and Do Everything is supplemented by observations of American and Chinese life. Rich and humorous illustrations convey the subtle ideas that go beyond language and are re-created in the same style as the ones the author draws impromptu on the blackboard in his classes. This introduction to ancient Taoism is conveyed in a lighthearted and humorous manner. This illustrated new Taoism will answer the widespread thirst for an alternative approach to life, and a longing for health, tranquility, and spiritual liberation.
"Humorous, simple, profound, Do Nothing & Do Everything demonstrates the convincing usefulness of Taoism in contemporary society. Zhao has built three bridges in one stroke: the first between ancient and modern, the second between East and West, and the third between words and pictures." -Kang Liu, Professor of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies,...
