WHAT IF ...
there was A WAY
to walk with intent
and radiate inner joy
every day, not based on
circumstances, but from within?
As Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guest, Derek Lin,
author of "THE TAO OF HAPPINESS: Stories
from Chuang Tzu for Your Spiritual Journey,"
explains - from the Taoist sense, real happiness
is a “process” and a lifelong journey
that doesn't rely on external factors.
The key to true happiness is within us,
Lin says, paraphrasing Tzu's philosophy.
Lin continued: "We should journey through life
with a carefree heart no matter how bumpy
that journey may be."
In the simplest sense, Tao is a Chinese
character which means "the way" or "the path."
Chuang Tzu was the sage who stood apart
from all others in Chinese history.
His mastery was such that he could explain
the Tao with simple stories, and his humor
was such that he could see the joy
in ordinary things.
He taught his students about “carefree wandering” —
the path of moving through life with a free
and happy heart, regardless of how turbulent
the journey might be.
We may not have the instability or the clash
of massive armies indicative of Chuang Tzu’s time,
but we have a lot of stress and tension in our modern world.
Many of us find ourselves fighting little battles
on the personal front just to get through the day.
We can benefit greatly from Chuang Tzu’s teachings.
Join Julie Ann and master teacher of the Tao Derek Lin
to discover how to cultivate the happiness
that can fill every moment, as well as last a lifetime.
