Delivering profound wisdom, The Tao of Relationships A Balancing of Man and Woman will leave readers with reflective thoughts. For a man and woman to achieve balance in a relationship, they both need to understand how to come together and stay apart. Love, like the Tao, cannot be limited or described by time or words. The man and woman become a natural process and way of life. Together and apart, they both have a mystical wholeness.
Many know about the yin and yang (male and female) polar energies, which can achieve balance together. When a man and woman find balance, a Tao principle, they will find harmony and unity. The Tao of Relationships builds deep thoughts for readers to contemplate with beautiful illustrations to pause and enjoy. The yin and yang, male and female, both opposites, come together to balance and complete one another. A key in achieving balance includes appreciating coming apart and silence.
The Tao of Relationships will deliver insight and have you reflect on being gentle and accepting. For any deep thinkers in a relationship, this intuitive book will teach you profound lessons. Ray Grigg delivers a thought-provoking and inspiring adaptation that does not mention the word love because, like The Tao, it cannot be defined.
“Based on Taoist philosophy, this refreshing alternative to the ‘men who hate women/women who hate men’ genre removes love from the psychological to the spiritual realm. In a work reminiscent of but less accomplished than Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, Grigg encourages readers to set aside preoccupations with sexual etiquette and compatible goals to concentrate on achieving the harmonious, dynamic balance of yin and yang (‘Possess and there will be loss. Try and there will be failure. Struggle and there will be defeat. To arrive, unloose. To discover, yield. To trust, empty. To receive, honour’). The book comprises a series of short, poetic meditations on themes like separateness/togetherness, hardness/softness, and finding/losing. Romantics may learn how to place the ups and downs of their relationships into perspective and recognize that ‘the place that houses a man and woman’s togetherness must define but not constrict.’ Reproductions of beautiful 17th-century Chinese woodblock prints illustrate the text. Grigg is a former high-school instructor in British Columbia.” Publisher’s Weekly
