Summary

It’s the perfect marriage of wisdom and wit—here are 100 valuable lessons on how to live, drawn from 100 hilarious and unforgettable jokes. A really good joke, like a great poem, memorable song lyric, razor-sharp anecdote, or Zen koan, is a portal of discovery—it can get a meaningful message across in a way that’s clear, humorous, and practical. It’s the secret weapon of every great comedian—there’s the joke, and then there’s the subtext of the joke, and that can mean serious business. A funny, funny joke about a therapist and his patient conveys, for example, an important lesson on the power of communication. A surprising joke about a tribal shaman and the weather service turns into a necessary critique on how we should view experts.

    In this book, I gathered simple, affordable and maximally efficient step-by-step recipes for natural cosmetics, which you may easily prepare at home with your hands. All these methods have repeatedly been tested in practice and can help you to solve your most profound and age-old challenges, which sometimes remain unsolved even if you use some expensive branded products.
     
    These products –from lotions to creams – do no harm to the skin and the environment so that we can call them eco cosmetics.
     
    Most of the recipes described here consist of simple, affordable and useful components. And their effectiveness is proven not only by professional cosmetologists but also by numerous women who use them regularly as the part of skin care and they help to slow down skin aging and to improve its appearance.
     
    If you are not lazy and decide to include homemade facial masks in the list of your daily facial skin care products, you can improve the quality condition of your skin and extend its youth and beauty for many years.
     
    The health of your skin depends on the food and vitamins consumed by you, but that is not enough because your skin should be ‘fed’ from outside. And here, again, Nature will be your helper number one. It has already created beautiful things, which help us to stay healthy and young. You just need to listen to its advice.

    I tend to suffer from compulsive liberationist tendencies – in other words, I’m a natural-born liberator – so I hope reading this book serves to set you free of anything holding you back from transforming your own life into the most magnificent adventure imaginable. 
    I say I’m a supercharged Taoist because for more than 35 years I’ve been training in Taoist martial arts, qigong, and meditation. Just as it promised in the instruction leaflets, these practices have generated an accumulation of supercharged energy that courses through me and everything I do. This makes my life exciting, endlessly varied, and full of adventure. Using the ancient Taoist wu-wei manifesting methods – focusing on being, not doing, and intending things into existence rather than trying to force them – I’m able to create reality as I wish it to be, almost instantaneously. I say this humbly. Also, by letting the Taoist philosophy underscore everything I think, do, and say, I’ve learned to be flexible in my thinking. Flexibility lets me enjoy all aspects of the ride to the fullest, whether in an up phase or a down one. I feel blessed by all this and want to share my good fortune with you. I want you, in your own style, to be blessed in the same way. 
    I’ve always had a desire to share the wonder of the Tao with others. That’s been my motivation for as long as I can remember. I have an enthusiasm for it, a childlike exuberance that carries me through life in a way that uplifts and cheers me. I’ve found that over the years my exuberance has helped others feel exuberant too. That is how I want this book to leave you feeling, and I want all of Britain and the whole world beyond to feel exuberant too.
