I want to recommend Josh' book The Tao is Now.
The book, published in 2008, is a compendium of short readings meant to be read on a daily basis rather than in one sitting. Josh has selected short pieces from writers of many traditions -- Jesus, Rumi, Voltaire, Omar Khayam,the Dalai Lama, Franz Kafka, Keizan, many contemporary writers -- you get the idea.
Each reading contains a short comment written by Josh.
The theme tying the pieces together is "In This Moment." One of my favorites (and one of the shortest) is Rumi:
"You are the truth from foot to brow.
Now what else would you like to know?"
Here's another short sample from (of all places) the Bible, book of Exodus:
"Take off your shoes. The ground where you stand is holy ground."
You can get this book on Amazon. Or perhaps Josh's generous offer to send one to OBCC folks is still open.
This book is a gem. It's an aid to moment-to-moment meditation, but it blows the autocratic, authoritarian, the-master-knows-all model of religious teaching out of the water.
I highly recommend this book!
