Recommended to James by: Philosophy freaks, Eastern mystics, religiously inclined
Shelves: own
This second volume is also a great read. As I had written about the first volume: Taoism cuts through the clutter of imposed values and instructs the way to live as life is intended. Very deep, but it beckons man to become what he had been before ego got in the way. Almost an attempt to go back to before the Fall of Man.
