All that we experience is subjective.
There is no sensation without interpretation.
We create the world and ourselves;

365 Tao: Daily Meditations

This book is one of the books that are part of my daily readings and study of Tao. The other books include:

I read and contemplate the passages before breakfast, before lunch, before dinner and before bed. I find it very convenient to do this using the Kindle version on my mobile phone.

Daily Meditation
