The Story Behind The Shu: The Gnostic Tao Te Ching by Thomax Green

When I was young boy I met a Taoist by a poolside. He took an interest in me and told me about the Tao, at least until I started to tell him about it. He was so intrigued by me he taught me how to meditate like a Taoist and then gave me his copy of the Tao Te Ching. I have been The Shureading the book over and over again all these years since.

When I was a teenager I was meditating when the image of the Polluctus was shown to me. The Polluctus is the image on the book cover. I was told with the vision by an unseen force that someday I would write a book that changed the world and this is the image that will unite them.

Ten years ago I awoke from a coma a changed man. My youth was spent on desire and depression. After the coma my eyes were opened to my destiny. I met my lovely wife shortly afterward and began writing like it was the air I breathed.

I put off finishing The Shu for many years because I felt it was my immortality and when I released it to the world I would be made mortal. I have come to terms with such a fate because I realize the importance of the book and how it could make so many other people’s lives better.

There is a strong interest in the book being brought to other countries in different languages. That is why I am seeking help from New York now.

I will never write another book that helps people out like this one has and I am good with that. Especially since 50% of my royalties are going to UNICEF to help children in need. My hope is for people to find enlightenment from its pages and then spread it on to those who need it more than them. Then buy another copy for themselves. It makes a perfect circle of giving.
