The principle of sowing and reaping underpins the way the world functions. Without this principle in operation, life will cease to exist. Everything that sustains man comes from the ground after a seed has been planted. The principle of sowing and reaping underpins the way the world functions. Without this principle in operation, life will cease to exist. Everything that sustains man comes from the ground after a seed has been planted. This book uses this analogy to show how life functions. If you plant good seeds, you will inevitably have a good harvest. Conversely, if you plant bad seeds, you will reap bad results. Whatever we do as human beings, whether good or bad, will have serious repercussions. The theme of this book is that everything has consequences. A promiscuous life characterised by superfluity of evil, in which people are morally unrestrained, will lead to the serious consequences of contracting diseases of epidemic proportions. This book is an attempt to warn people to live circumspectly, knowing that one will reap what he or she sows.

Lao Zi Philosophy of Liberal Government

If laws are their enemies, they will be enemies to laws; and those who have much

"Professor Chung is one of the few authors who have given a different perspective to original ideas of Lao Zi given in Tao Te Jing. Tao Te Jing is a book on philosophy of governance. for example, verse 31 is talking about the danger of having military forces but yet various authors tried to portray Tao Te Jing as a book on spiritual philosophy or even religious bible. Based on the philosophy of Lao Zi, Professor Chung is trying to give his views that everybody has to educate himself, become self-reliant instead of being fooled into complete dependency on a leader and choose freedom over being protected within a cell." - Prof. Chuah Hean Teik, President of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman, Malaysia "Many of us have not realized that Taoism is very different from Taoist teachings founded by Lao Zi. In Taoism, Lao Zi is popularly regarded as a god. Ironically Taoist teaching taught by Lao Zi is explicitly an atheist philosophy which is meant to guide us through the treacherous paths in life. This invaluable set of knowledge is encrypted in classical Chinese which is not easily interpreted by an average Chinese reader. In our Malaysian society most of us are better versed in English than Chinese. Professor BK Chung has recognized this setback and with his magnanimous heart, he has taken a lot of pain translating this Chinese script into English, and supplemented with many real-life examples to demonstrate the aptness of Taoist teachings in modern context." - Lim Hock Seng, former R and D Manager of Sony Electronics, Penang "Our minds, known to us, are not wise but full with defiled thoughts. We have very little idea about our true minds. Tao Te Jing helps us to realize our true minds. This can be achieved by letting go all our conventional ideas, definitions, knowledge, and names. Shortly speaking, we have to let go all our thoughts. All the points highlighted in Tao Te Jing are helping and telling us to detach all the thoughts including the Way (Tao) and Names (Ming)." - Dr. Lim Yun Seng, Faculty of Engineering, Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman "In a reader friendly style, the author's has translated, interpreted and applied the principles of the philosophy of Tao De Jing succinctly from the perspective of how the government should administer its people and society. the author in accordance with the philosophy of Tao De Jing, advocates non intervention of the government in people's lives, society and let nature takes its own course. A must read for those who wished to be enlightened by the Great Tao of which the author has done a good job in helping us to understand the precepts and basic tenets of the philosophy of Tao De Jing in simple language and clarity of thoughts." - Foo Kam Mee, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Creative Industries, Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman

The Point of Origin investigates the evolution of religious consciousness as an integral reality in the human person. The evolution of religious consciousness is an experience found throughout human history beginning with the earliest known human species, the Cro-Magnon. In this work Br. Thomas identifies empirical data that lends itself to his theory that spirituality is not a bi-product of the human phenomena but an essential characteristic of being human. The author delves into conscious acknowledgement of the natural law as a universal norm guiding human activity in the wake of the plurality of religious expressions (Atheism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, etc.). In a crescendo effect of his work Br. Thomas illustrates how mysticism becomes the ultimate expression of religious consciousness in the human experience.
