A lot of us know people who are educated in these writings and beliefs. I have two very good friends who are. When I told them about Jade Writing, they were enchanted to know there was one more place they could turn to in order to further their studies. Now, when I speak with my friends, I will have a reference for comments they say that once left me confused. I may even surprise them some day. I hope so.
The author can now breathe a sigh of relief, for of course, this is not at all his intended audience. Jade Writing will indeed find plenty of readers; readers who also understand that life is about more then earning money and having a good time, and who seek to find the deeper truths of human existence, spirituality, alchemy and of course, Taoist beliefs. Forget Harry Potter, this is the real secret of the philosopher's stone.
The Chinese characters that appear on every other page throughout the text add to the intrigue, even for a reader as myself who knows nothing of the Chinese language or script. The only drawback to this Kindle version is that the text and the characters can be a touch too small for ease of reading...but I wouldn't let this put you off. It's legible; it just takes a little more effort.
The whole text, in fact, does require an effort on the part of the reader, but then you don't purchase a book like this unless you are serious about understanding its precepts and benefiting from its wisdom. It has been described variously as a `3rd century alchemy manual', `a revolutionary work of the third Aeon' and a modern translation and interpretation of a classic Taoist Canon classic', and I am not about to argue with any of these descriptions. The learned in such matters will know all this anyway. The rest of us, however, who are fed up with materialism and the lack of a depth in our lives need perhaps to know instead that it is an inspirational work, and may reward its readers with the knowledge of how to find a better balance in their lives, physical and spiritual, through the Taoist tenets and insights into the principles of Chinese medicine. It even provides a hope for a better and more peaceful balance in the world at large, for those who care to listen.
I agree wholeheartedly with the reviewer who states that this is a book that cannot (at least by most) be digested in one sitting, and indeed, may have to be read several times. It is a book to study, rather than a quick read. Like all good things, however, the rewards are there for those with the tenacity. I defy anyone to have their thinking unchanged after carefully studying this text. I can only also applaud the dedication, knowledge and achievement of the writer and the translator. A superb job.
Couple of the important power vectors in the modern world are tendency for stability and peace (that often implies an appeal for the return to the old values and nature) and tendency towards advancement (which, when excessive, leads to relentless competitive and predatory attitude).
This work offers a philosophical and almost rigorous mathematical solution for the integration of these two forces, from the very beginning ("Dedicated to Peace and Prosperity of All"). The "root of the equation" is revealed in the the junction of these two noble, but seemingly contradictory human aspirations.
The book emphasis on the elements of the holographic nature of the world constantly conveys the principle of enhancing the social harmony as the integral summary of the individual "places in the Universe", that are established through "Jade Writing" practice. A thoughtful choice of quotes and the references, from multiple sciences, religions and especially esoteric systems of knowledge, that assist each other towards the common goal (which is an enhanced life quality and longevity of the individual that doesn't require taking anything from the other beings), also passes the same, not so obvious, but a powerful "motion" to the adepts of various traditions.
I sense here a deep relation between "Jade" and "Jedi" values and wholeheartedly second the motion.
