“The Tao of Pooh” is a book by Benjamin Hoff that uses the allegory of Winnie the Pooh to explain Eastern Philosophy and Taoism, and he does it brilliantly. As all Questers know by now, many of the Secrets to Eternal Joy and Never Ending Splendor (SEJNES) come from the East. (“I journey to the east, where I have been told, there are men who have taught death some manners.” - Jitterbug Perfume)

Benjamin Hoff uses language and symbols our Western Mind’s can relate to. He passes on ancient eastern wisdom through the fabled subconscious hero of our youth, Winnie the Pooh. He manages to do it in just such a way that we can understand it and apply it to our daily lives. If that isn't the definition of a Secret to Eternal Joy and never Ending Splendor, then I don't know what is.

This is a book you will read again and again over the years, gaining more and more from it each time you do. Sort of like how I feel when I re-read “Calvin and Hobbes” these days. There’s so much there! “The Tao of Pooh” takes that same power of an allegory and pushes it to an even deeper level. He wraps the timeless and transcendental Truths of Taoism in bite size pieces.

I hope you'll do yourself the favor of reading the book and join us or participate online by sharing the SEJNES Easter Eggs you find in this book.

" From the state of the Uncarved Block comes the ability to enjoy the simple and the quiet, the natural and the plain. Along with that comes the ability to do things spontaneously and have them work, odd as that may appear to others at times. As Piglet put it in Winnie-the-Pooh, "Pooh hasn't much Brain, but he never comes to any harm. He does silly things and they turn out right." - Tao of Pooh

As ever,
