The Change Paradox

Hey everybody... This week, Dodge and I are unpacking his conversation with William Martin. We try to have a simple conversation on a simple concept and fail terribly. But that's the path of the Tao, right? Thanks to William's guidance, we know not to beat ourselves up about such things, but move through it. We appreciate you moving through the conversation with us. Thanks for showing up. — Pete

William Martin and the Gentle Path of the Tao Te Ching

The Change Paradox

Hey everybody... it's Pete. At one point in our conversation today, Dodge will say that he's going to try to explain to you all what the Tao is. Our guest, who has been studying and thinking about the Tao for more than three decades says in response, "Good luck with that." That pretty much says it all for me, too. I've read a bit, thought some, studied my fair share. But the Tao is one of those pesky constructs, an intellectual raccoon trap, and just when I think I have a handle on what it means for me, I get my metaphorical fist stuck in the bottle and can't break free. That's why we're glad to have William Martin on the show with us today. He's written many Tao-inspired books, including The Parent’s Tao Te Ching, and his latest, The Activist's Tao Te Ching. A graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and Western Theological Seminary, he has worked as a research scientist for the Department of the Navy, a clergyman, and a college instructor in counseling, communications, and the humanities—and for many years, conducted workshops and seminars on the application of Taoist and Zen thought to the issues of everyday life. All that is to say, we're in good hands with Bill today. He's not a high mystic — an oracle on the hill — he's a guy who has worked hard to understand this thing in a way that can make it approachable to the rest of us. We deeply enjoyed talking with him and hope you do, too. Links & Notes Freedom, Simplicity, and Joy — William Martin's Home on the Web Buy the Books • William Martin's Amazon Author Page

Do Not Ask Your Children To Strive by William Martin | The Parent's Tao Te Ching | Recited by Simerjeet Singh | Inspirational Poem

Motivational Speaker Simerjeet Singh's Podcast

“Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. Such striving may seem admirable, but it is the way of foolishness. Help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life. Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples and pears. Show them how to cry when pets and people die. Show them the infinite pleasure in the touch of a hand. And make the ordinary come alive for them. The extraordinary will take care of itself.” ― William Martin, The Parent's Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for Modern Parents Read by Simerjeet Singh Watch this video on YouTube: #SimerjeetSingh #WilliamMartin #InspirationalPoems #Poetry #Poems #EnglishPoems For more information about Simerjeet's work as a motivational speaker, please visit his website: http://www.simerjeetsingh.com Subscribe to our YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/simerjeetsingh
