Humankind ventures into the spiritual text of the Tao Te Ching, an ancient Chinese Wisdom Book that has guided philosophers, poets, and legions of ordinary people since its publication some 2500 years ago. The rich advice on leading a simpler life with greater meaning will prove to be a cool, restful drink in our frenzied and thirsting world. Stop for a minute, curl up on a chair or sofa, and meditate on this wonderfully calming and catalyzing episode of Humankind.
