The Tao of Pooh and the Te of Piglet

The how of Pooh? The Tao of who? The Tao of Pooh!? in which it is revealed that one of the world's great Taoist masters isn't Chinese'or a venerable philosopher'but is in fact none other that that effortlessly calm, still, reflective bear. A. A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh!While Eeyore frets? and Piglet hesitates? and Rabbit calculates? and Owl pontificates? Pooh just is.And that's a clue to the secret wisdom of the Taoists.

What is Te?
What is Taoism?
What has Piglet to do with either?
Te (pronounced "Deh") is Chinese for Virtue. Taoism is a Chinese philosophy. (Practically speaking, it's more than "Chinese," and more than "philosophy," but we'll get into the whys and hows of that further on, inside this book). And Piglet has quite a bit to do with both. What exactly? In the first place . . . That is, he . . . What we mean is . . . Perhaps we'd better let the author do the explaining.
In any event, Piglet not only has quite a bit to do with Te and Taoism; he also has quite a bit to do with you and me - as have Te and Taoism - whoever we may happen to be, whatever we may happen to be doing. And that is a Very Useful Thing to Know. As you will see.
