Do you desire to change or completely start over? Starting over is not as difficult as we think. The Genesis account of Creation reveals a divine sequence, showing us the secrets to new life. When we invite the Creator to make us new, we release any blame and regret we carry and embrace His foundation for re-creation, a new life. There we find exactly Who was presiding over the genesis of the earth. He can re-create us with a similar process: first bringing us revelation, then giving us benefits such as purpose and guidance, and finally teaching us to build a legacy. Through the divine sequence of Creation, we can learn simple spiritual disciplines for abiding in Christ and staying in step with the Spirit. If we want to begin again, we start at the Beginning.

Laoism: The Complete Teachings of Lao Zi

Laoism is the first ever book on the complete teachings of Lao Zi, an ancient Chinese philosopher-sage. It is also the first English depiction to distinguish Lao Zi's teachings from Taoism, a native religion of China. Endless revelations and commentaries on his text of Tao Te Ching (text) have been, and continuously exist in Chinese and many other languages, but not yet a complete work between the text and its poetic summary: the Lao Zi's self-invented fourteen-character couplet. The couplet, as old as the text, has been circulating secretively only in a few monasteries. This makes the writers throughout the history not being able to get a full picture on his work and the public inaccessible. The completion of such a project must be a combination of the spiritual inclination into the text and the heart-sealed connection with Lao Zi's spirit. The time has come.

Books in general at an early age had a profound influence on me. In their expressions and images of every sort I discovered a vast landscape of truth and emotion. After studying advanced Philosophy in college I left home at age 20 and traveled around New England and settled on a little island south of Boston. My love of the written word grew as did my writings and collections of eastern writers and classical poets. After a decade and intent on getting back to a more organic lifestyle I moved east into an old beach house where I'd spent summers as a child. Over the next decade I would travel the coastline with nothing more than a backpack and live healthy of body, mind, spirit, and write. These excursions provided a setting for a compelling mix of natural and spiritual inquires that filled me with contexts of purpose. Now residing in the mountains of Hunterdon County with my wife and children my collections continue to grow and my home is crowded with works of art, music, poetry, and philosophy. Now as always I continue to sojourn outdoors in all weathers and write and live with the literary immortals as companions with an assimilation and appreciation of the years.
