The Tao of Pooh

Оценок: 498 | Просмотров: 9839
Winnie the Pooh was probably my favorite cartoon as a kid. It turns out he has quite a bit to teach us. He is the embodiment of what it means to be in flow with the Tao. -- Buy the Book 'The Tao of Pooh': http://amzn.to/2lQ5Qot Subscribe To My Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFWz1e3VXKOoJ-E5cep1Eg Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Thought.Monkey.Community/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thought.monkey/ Sign up to my Email List: http://thtmonkey.com/ -- Intro Music: Phoniks - Got to My Head Background Music: Joakim Karud - Love Mode

Only a fool, or an anti-intellectual (aka Trumpkin), think that learning equals stupidity. An unfurnished mind is equal to an empty mind. Ignorance is not the WAY. I am a veteran, ex-cop, war corspondant and proud, well read, intellectual and I consider anti-intellectuals as a blight on society. Monkey? Yes. Thought--not so much. Kid, do us a favor. Check back when you are a bit older, have had a bit more experience of life, and have read a bit more. I was studying Taoism before your parents were born and from my perspective you are no more than a child making a mess on the floor.

lensman67 it seems you never understood Taoism in your studies. No one says learning = stupidity. You are mistakingly equating an empty mind with ignorance. Those are not the same. You may be an intellectual, but all that gives you is a second hand conceptual contact with reality. You only see things "for-me". You do not see things "as-itself".

Nobody cares about your opinion on how you think is the best way to live life. Mind your own business and live and let live.

Life is not meant to be understood completely, it is not just about a goal in the future, it is about each moment as a universe in itself. Life is an experiencia that starts at birth and ends at death, each moment of consciousness is meant to be experienced in itself. Life is the universe because we know nothing else and anything else is indifferent. Life is the Tao, because life is like a road, and to be conscious of each moment is to follow the way.

Ricard de Virgo Well said and so on-point. Some folks have missed the whole point of the book.

Brilliant book, saw this video a few months ago, went out and got it, finally got to read it. It’s a different outtake on things which is definitely very valuable to read, regardless of who you are.

I read the Tao of Pooh and I was not really impressed with it. To understand Pooh you really have to understand Britain and the class war between the wars. You see it in Lord of the Rings with the Hobbits as well, a bit later. The Aristocrats and the educated had failed the working classes and the working classes had died by the thousands and hundreds of thousands in the Great War. They were to die again in WW2 as well. And the suffragette movement disappeared in disgrace, because women in general had failed working class men as well, with the white feather campaign being prominent among other acts that didn't resonate well. There was a huge upsurge of sympathy and pride in the common British men of the Empire, and the way they had risen to the challenge despite their mistreatment. They may not be educated, but they were loyal, brave, generous, kind, hard-working, content with simple pleasures and possessed down to earth common sense. 20 years before they had been coarse, lazy, uncouth, rowdy, uneducated dirty and criminal and were being deported by the thousand. Pooh was an effort to instill these (now popular) values in male children of the middle and upper-classes in a loveable character. The other characters just allowed him to show his goodness. I don't study Taoism, but I think that Pooh would find any parallel with Taoism a little pretentious and far too intellectual for his tastes. Not for the likes of him. Even calling Pooh wise would not be right. Just good solid common sense and a good heart.

2:46 That is so true, and it is highly relevant given our modern context, where most people don't have time, and are constantly in a rush. How can an average person that works at least 8hs a day be able to read complex books at the end of the day, and not tempt him/herself to sit on the couch and absorb whatever the TV says? It's difficult to concentrate with the flickering lights of black mirrors, and even more difficult to understand the (generally) unnecessary complex vocabulary that most intellectuals use when you're really tired.

Your videos keep getting better and better. This one is my favourite for sure but then again I'm biased because Winnie The Pooh was one of my favourites as a kid too! Keep up the good work my man

Tao is the way, no matter what happens. Detach yourself from yourself, because we are everything and the moment is Tao. We can explain, but can we mutually experience. If not, then don’t force it.

Read I EAT TOMATOES's books if you like Taoism.

The core of Ancient China is only the provinces around the East end of Yellow River. The map you are showing at the start of the show even included Inner Mongolia, Manchuria, XinJiang, and Tibet, which are all not part of Ancient China. Those Autonomous regions are not incorporated into Chinese Empire until later dynasties.

True. But the maps of ancient china kind of suck. :(
