How do you create a practice of gratitude without drawing comparison with others or judging how others live their lives? Its easy to say I'm better off than someone else or say “I'm so thankful I have more than someone lesser than me”. Let me introduce the verses of the Tao Te Ching written some 2500 years ago by Lao-Tzu. These verses give us a wealth of wisdom in how to live a life of Peace and Contentment by following what Lao-Tzu calls The Way. THANKS gives us a routine of thanks and gratitude through a lens of the Tao Te Ching verses. The THANKS app gives you each verses (verses 1 to 16 at this stage) and with an explanation of the verses and how they can lead you in healthy and fulfilling daily gratitude practice. You can read or listen to the verses and the essays written for each verse. Each essay is only 5 to 10 mins in length. THANKS also give you access to music, videos and mediations music written specifically for the verses of the Tao Te Ching. If you are looking for a way forward that is different to how main stream society and media based advertising is influencing our lives, creating added pressures to perform and always be in front, I encourage you to try THANKS as an introduction to some of the greatest wisdom every passed down through the ages. The Tao Te Ching is the second most translated ancient text next to the Bible. Easy to understand translations, written by North Creek Rd, will give you an easy way to comprehend the wisdom of “The Way”. The THANKS app is a product of North Creek Rd currently providing 16 verses of the Tao Te Ching. We intend to continue to expand this concept of gratitude right through the 81 verses written by Lao-Tzu, with essays, music, videos and mediations. My hope is that one day leaders of our society will start to incorporate these wisdoms of 'The Way' in their leadership styles. Once you read these verses, and start to apply these life changing wisdoms I hope you will find greater Peace and Contentment in all you accomplish in your life.
