The TAO is the ancient wisdom from China, based on the profound wisdom of the ancient sage Lao Tzu. According to the TAO, wisdom comes from the thinking mind, and not the knowledge acquired and accumulated.

On the journey of living longer, you need both a compass and a roadmap.

The compass, to find your direction, and the roadmap to find your whereabouts; the compass is your wisdom, which is unlimited, and the roadmap is your knowledge, which is limited.

Self-intuit all the whys and the hows  of who you are and what you have now become, as well as all the things that have happened to you on your journey.

Click here to get your copy to find out how to harness the TAO on your life journey.
This book explains the paradoxes of life: what "anything is everything" may be true to some people, but not to every one; "everything is nothing" is the reality of life, which is the impermanence of everything; "nothing is everything" is the profound wisdom to understand that the nothingness of everything may ultimately become everything if there is enlightenment in living as if everything is a miracle.

                                             LOVE AND MONEY

The wisdom of love

If you feel gratitude for those you love and for those who love you, you‘ll be happy.

If you appreciate what you now have, you’ll not feel the lack.

If you love and forgive yourself totally (only you can do that, and no one can do that for you), you’ll learn to let go of the past and move forward with your happiness.

The wisdom of love will give you the energy within for you to do anything and everything in every aspect of your life to give you happiness.

The wisdom of love and money

If you want to marry rich, do you think of love first, or the one you’re going to marry?

If you’re rich, does your loved one love you or your money? The rich and the wealthy, due to their ego, often don’t really care.

If you aren’t rich, do you love an individual irrespective of that individual’s abundance or lack?

There’re no definitive answers to all of the above questions. True and genuine love is unconditional, which is loving someone with or without money, and love is priceless.

The bottom line

Money cannot buy love, and love cannot buy money -- that’s the reality. But love is hardly disconnected from the reality of living in the material world that involves money. And that’s also the reality.

So, you must focus on your own core values, such as honesty, integrity, love, compassion, generosity, and gratitude, among others. Your core values have little to do with money; instead, they demonstrate the values of what life has to offer, and not the values of things purchased with money. Your core values affect how you may live for the rest of your life, including with your marriage partner.

So, look at love and money from your own perspectives, such that you’ll not end up only loving money, and not its wisdom.

Spending money in a marriage

Your money wisdom is to spend what’s left after your saving. If you don’t have anything left, then why do you spend on the things you don’t really need with the money you don’t have?

Basically, your spending habits have much to do with your own money values. So, rethink your own money values: what does money really mean to you?

Also, ask yourself some questions about any “big spending” you may have on your mind, such as the following:

Buying a “big” house

·Do you really need a big house?

·Why do you want to buy a 4-bedroom house, instead of one with 3 bedrooms?

·Can you buy one later instead of right now?

Planning a “big” wedding

·Do you want to spend “big money” on your engagement ring, your wedding dress, and your wedding reception?

The reality is that an expensive wedding doesn’t guarantee a happy marriage, except a heavy debt if you don’t have the cash.

Warren Buffett once said with humor that he bought “expensive” suits, but they looked pretty “cheap” on him.

Do you buy an expensive dress to make you look “expensive”? So, don’t try to “look” rich, but to “get” rich by spending your money wisely.

The reality

Yes, money does matter in a marriage. If money really matters to you, then capitalize on the skills you already have acquired, enhance and improve them, and look for better and richer employment. In addition, there’re most likely many other skills you may already possess that can’t be or haven’t been fully maximized or utilized where you’re currently working. Then, harness those skills and capitalize on them through doing some freelance work on the side to maximize your current income.

But money is also the No.1 cause of divorce in married couples. The explanation is that earning money, saving money, and spending money involve many human conflicts, disagreements, priorities. Worse, money often leads to an inflated ego and the sin of pride-both lack accountability to maintaining and sustaining a happy marriage.

Letting go

“Letting go” literally means releasing your close or tight fist to abandon or give up something that you’re holding in your hand. If you are close- or tight-fisted, you also cannot receive anything without opening your hand.

“Letting go” is detaching. The opposite of “letting go” is “attaching to” something that you’re stubbornly holding on to.

It’s letting go, and not attaching to, that makes you strong, because it overcomes the fear of the unknown and the unpredictable. Let go of yesterday to live in today as if everything is a miracle; let go of the world to have the universe.

So, let go of your attachment to money, or anything that you’ve attached a price tag.

Saving money in a marriage

Making money may be easy for some, but keeping the money made is difficult for many.

Many Americans earn plenty of money to live a great lifestyle but don’t save enough for their long-term life goals.

With your money wisdom, you always have to save and pay yourself first. If not, you could end up blowing away all your money faster than you earn it.

So, how do you pay yourself first?

Simple: Open both a checking account and a savings account. Deposit a certain but fixed amount of money into your savings account every month.

In addition, set up an emergency fund. Why? It’s because you may become unemployed; your house’s roof may need repair and fixing; you may experience a medical emergency; you may need a college fund, and so on. So, if you’ve extra cash each month, deposit it into your emergency fund.

So, how do you get rid of your debts?

With your money wisdom, you get rid of your debts as much as and as soon as possible. Pay off first all your debts with the highest interest rate, such as your medical bills and your student loans. Pay your credit cards balance-remember, getting another credit card won’t solve the problem of credit card debt or payment.

As for your home mortgage, make bi-weekly instead of monthly payments; refinance your mortgage from 30 years to 15 years.

So, how do you save little to save big?

“Beware of little expenses. A small leak can sink a great ship.”-Benjamin Franklin

Your every daily action has a monetary consequence. Here are some of the little things you can do to save little to save big:

·Avoid buying your coffee on your way to work.

·Bring your own lunch to work, instead of getting your lunch elsewhere.

·Eat more at home than at restaurants.

·Get your DVDs from your local library, rather than going to cinemas to watch your movies.
