In 1994 Jerry Dalton wrote a book on the Tao Te Ching. Once I asked him about it and he told me few people know that.( I learned of it from Linn Spencer) I managed to get a copy off ebay. This book is a practical guide to the mystical and a mystical guide to the practical. If interested there are many translations of the Tao on the internet, and he recommends reading as many as possible.
It says that Jerry has on his desk 4 words, " Mundane Events, Magical Process".
I'm reading it and finding it all interesting , but I won't pretend a great understanding of it.
