Change and anger are in the air. 'We are the 99%,' 'black lives matter,' and 'love is love' have become part of the lexicon. Previously unquestioned institutions (police, military, the NSA) are under scrutiny. Heat waves, floods, and earthquakes seem to be increasing. Could there be a silver lining? William Martin turns to the Tao te Ching and finds that while Taoism is known for its quiet, enigmatic wisdom, the Tao can also have the cleansing force of a rushing river. Martin elucidates these revolutionary messages condemning power seeking and greed. He emphasizes that humans have a 'Te' that can help them heal the planet; shows how Taoism's 'simplicity' can be subversive and its flexibility a potent force; and reassures that 'When injustice is the rule, justice lies in wait.' Provocative and stirring, Martin's Tao flows within and through those who ride the waves of anger and frustration, 'and gently guides [them] to true freedom.'

William Martin is the author of six books of Tao te Ching interpretation including titles highlighting parenting, love, aging, and caregiving. He lives in Chico, CA.
