Real words about real life show us how we can be wiser and happier, when we open our hearts and minds. -Taro Gold, The Tao of Dad Author Taro Gold's life has been enriched by the guidance and comradeship of many great dads-from his father and stepfather to his grandpa-and great-grandpa.

Illustrated with bold and stunning watercolor art, this compendium of wise words offers important lessons and hope-filled visions from both Eastern and Westerndads. * Physical force is temporary, as the body is transitory. But spiritual power is permanent, as the spirit is everlasting. --Mahatma Gandhi * Peace, like charity, begins at home. --Franklin D. Roosevelt * A day without laughter is a day wasted. --Grandpa The Chinese word tao means "way" and implies "teachings" or "wisdom," making The Tao of Dad the way to great, wise fathers.

Best-selling author Taro Gold's creation, The Tao of Mom, is a rare jewel of a gift book celebrating the timeless theme of motherhood with a daily dose of motherly wisdom. In The Tao of Mom, author Taro Gold shares with us 365 rare and insightful quotations from mother figures around the world, revealing on each page the wisdom, courage, and compassion that define motherhood. "Tao" is a Chinese word meaning "way" or "path." The Tao of Mom, then, is literally The Way of Mothers. Many of the women celebrated in The Tao of Mom are well-known, while some are not; many hail from the West, yet all impart distinctly Eastern sensibilities. To further enrich our journey into the thoughts of each motherly figure, background details are included about each woman, such as Rosa Parks, mother of the modern civil rights movement; Aung San Suu Kyi, leader of the democratic movement in Myanmar; Maria Montessori, Italian educational reformer; and Abhirupa-Nanda, Indian poet-to name only a few. Lavishly illustrated, this gem of a book is for you to give to the moms in your life, for moms to give to you, for everyone to give to dads (as a loving reminder of how wise moms can be), and of course for you to give to yourself. The Tao of Mom is for everyone in need of a daily dose of motherly wisdom, inspiration, and comfort.

Taro Gold inspires and enlightens with Living Wabi Sabi: The True Beauty of Your Life. A blend of Eastern wisdom, feng shui, and the movement toward simplicity, Wabi Sabi is a Japanese expression meaning "wisdom in natural simplicity." Wabi Sabi helps us to see the beauty in imperfection, to discover that our unique flaws also can lead us to our greatest strengths and treasures. No one is perfect – in fact, we all are perfectly imperfect. That is the paradoxical first lesson shared by Taro Gold in Living Wabi Sabi: The True Beauty of Your Life. What is Wabi Sabi? A universal ideal of beauty, Wabi Sabi celebrates the basic, the unique, and the imperfect parts of our lives. Wabi Sabi is the comfortable joy you felt as a child, happily singing off key, creatively coloring outside the lines, and mispronouncing words with gusto. On a deeper level, Wabi Sabi is the profound awareness of our oneness with all life and the environment. It includes a deep awareness of the choices we make each day, the power we have to accept or reject each moment of our lives, and to find value in every experience. Appreciate this and every moment, no matter how imperfect, for this moment is your life. When you reject this moment, you reject your life. You don't have to settle for this moment, you are free to steer a different course, but for now, this moment is yours, so be mindful to make the most of it." Living Wabi Sabi: The True Beauty of Your Life leads us to discover the true beauty of our lives, to know true joy here and now, to reveal the most powerfully positive sides of imperfection. Illustrated with stunning yet simple watercolor art, Living Wabi Sabi: The True Beauty of Your Life is a beautiful keepsake that is sure to become a beloved resource for wisdom in the joy of living.

The Fall issue of Nectar of Nondual Truth is graced by articles from teachers and practitioners of the different religious traditions of the world, all offering knowledge and approbation of their especial path and ideal. And since application is more beneficial than approbation, the various verses and views expressed cogently herein should compel us to implement the important lessons and teachings into our everyday existence — not merely as transitory experiences, but as transforming transmission. As God exists both with eyes open and eyes closed, so too do all walks of life abound with the possibility of divine communion. As is said in our Vedanta tradition: To Labor is to pray, to conquer is to renounce, to have and to hold is as stern a trust as to quit and to avoid. Life itself is religion. The farmyard and the field, the workshop, the study, the studio are as true and fit scenes for the meeting of God with man as the cell of a monk or the door of a temple. Art, science and religion are but three different ways of expressing a single truth.

Lessons of the Wild creates an awareness of the essential lessons that Nature teaches us, and provides a guidebook for men and women--particularly those in their forties, fifties, and sixties--who are seeking greater significance in their lives. This book traces the traditional meaning of wilderness, blended with deep reflections and fascinating stories told by ordinary--and some extraordinary--people, whose lives were dramatically altered by their experiences in wild places. In Lessons of the Wild, Ed Andersen proposes that we have become estranged from the Source of our being and that the wilderness is our place of deep belonging. He calls for a rediscovery of our densely embedded affiliation with the Earth and its inhabitants. In support of this call, he offers five paired paths to wisdom, called Habits of Wholeness, which ultimately lead the reader to the consideration of a radical personal freedom. The book is unique in the way that it captures the elusive relationship between the outer wilderness of Nature and the inner wilderness of the human spirit. Lessons of the Wild is also a book about transitions--particularly in the major passages from boyhood to manhood and from the middle years to an age of wisdom. Lessons of the Wild is grounded in the profound conviction that wisdom can be drawn out of the wilderness and into everyday experience. And that, through Nature, we can begin to recover some of what's missing from our lives.
