The research started ten years ago to explain why humanity that while advancing technology wise was not advancing in character and progressing toward greatness to overcome its own calamities of war, poverty, famine, rape, murder, robbery, fraud, and worst of all a system of classes. Seven years into the research, the path led to the Tao Te Ching, which answered some of these questions concerning humanity. At this same time, ThyArt was created to provide inspirational writings to help motivate people toward their own greatness. Quickly the message of Tao Te Ching inspired ThyArt in the direction of a document called the Tao Te ThyArt. This short document took three years to mature on its path to being published. Concerning the writing style, it became a hybrid of philosophical wisdoms and collage of inspirational messages. The only importance is that the reader find value somewhere in these words.
Such a book can only be written out of hypocrisy. No person is perfect, there is no such definition of a perfect person. Perfection of self is in happiness of contentment, a health of longevity, a wealth of usefulness, while not violating the laws protecting all individuals or their right to these same riches.
Why Tao: In search of answers, there were no answers. Finding answers concerning the very small, the very large and of life, truly only created more questions with most the answers lacking. Tao is a philosophy of unknown and a common sense that seems to defy knowledgeable thought. In religion, often a clergy will say that god did it for this reason, how do they truly know god’s intent? In science, many theories of these fail the test of application, for how does a scientist put a spirit into a rock? To accept that some things are beyond human ability to answer is understanding Tao. So have faith, hold on to god, hold on to science, with understanding you as an individual lack answers to many questions unanswered. While you hold your faith, believe that all other individuals have their right to their individual faith. You are the light to your faith and it will show in your character and actions not in words or force. Tao thousands of years ago as a philosophy molded a country, altered its religions, and its people. The people took it as humanity does, destroying the philosophy, making it a collective, making it a religion. Tao was not a religion. Tao is a great philosophy to compliment the character of a person whether their faith is of god or science. Never let the collective do the thinking, for it will always be truly some other person’s agenda.
