Tao Te Ching

Tao Te Ching by Lao-tzu, translated and interpolated by Peter Fritz Walter.

Description

The Tao Te Ching by Lao-tzu is one of the most translated books of world literature. It is here presented in a translation that deliberately avoids any philosophical commentary and renders the text in English in its most simple and straightforward composure.

Lao-tzu’s writing style shines by its utter simplicity, in its will to be ‘ordinary language’ and to say what he thinks in the most economical and straightforward manner. Therefore all what is purely ornamental in the diction of the book must be ruthlessly cut away so that as it were the skeleton of the thoughts shines through; while many other translations contain way too much obfuscating complexity in syntax and vocabulary.

Even if one follows the newer idea the Tao Te Ching was written by a group of Taoist sages, and not by Lao-tzu, it was not the way of the Taoists to render eloquent speeches and to write academic works. Contrary to hellenistic philosophy, Taoism was in no way dialectic-speculative in its overall expression. Also those ancient sages would have firmly refused to call the book ‘holy,’ although the spirit that shines through it is an elevated, noble and religious spirit.

Despite the probability that the book has been written by a number of authors, it is today considered as a homogenous philosophical treatise. For this view speaks the thematic consistency, which spans all domains of daily life, and which looks at all human expression with compassion and understanding.

The Vibrant Nature of Life

The Vibrant Nature of Life: A Science-Based Pathway for a Better, Richer, and More Abundant Life, by Peter Fritz Walter

Description

‘The Vibrant Nature of Life: A Science-Based Pathway for a Better, Richer, and More Abundant Life,’ 2nd Edition, 2017, is the final conclusion of more than twenty years of research on the vibrational nature of life and our universe. 

Instead of presenting a dry scientific treatise, the author organizes the material as a selfhelp guide for a richer, and healthier life. It consists of six main parts: ‘The Vibrant Nature of Consciousness,’ ‘The Vibrant Nature of the Cosmos,’ ‘The Vibrant Nature of Pleasure, Emotions, and Sexuality,’ ‘The Vibrant Nature of Life Cycles,’  ‘The Vibrant Nature of Health’ and ‘The Vibrant Nature of the Human Psyche.’

The book shows that while still at the time of Newton and Descartes, science was myopic toward wholeness and hostile to nature, the author advocates new science as a holistic understanding of the field nature of life, and a systemic view of living systems that is coherent and sustainable. It is here, at this intersection between science and a lifestyle that fosters vibrancy that the author situates the present book. It is neither a simple review of almost one hundred books nor is it a selfhelp guide without scientific backup. The intention of the author was to bring science and selfhelp together in a unique plot that makes science fruitful as a direct guidance for a richer, healthier and fuller life, and a point of departure for self-discovery.

The result is a true life guide that gives scientifically proven answers to all our fundamental questions, from birth to death, over sexuality, the handling of emotions, coping with violence, and other conditions for truly intelligent and abundant living.
