This introduction is like an appetizer. Its purpose is to stimulate the appetite of the reader. Not an appetite for food, but rather an appetite for a new way of thinking. - a way of being a ‘Life-stylist’. In our story we will meet Zen Master Yamada who is a professor at the University of Kobe and forms the bridge between East and West. He explains to our hero, Murphy, why a new way of thinking is necessary in his life and explains what the problems and possibilities are for the reader. Murphy is a professor of mathematics from Rotterdam and Yamada gives him ten lessons he needs to successfully follow his exercises during his travels later in China.

Summary

Part One: The Appetizer

The what and why of Meidao.

This is not fast or junk food. Therefore, eat it slowly, chew it well, and don’t eat too much all at once.

Part Two: The Main Course

An introduction and training in Meidao - the Way of Beauty.

The main course is not written to be read in one sitting. It is not easy to consume and it is not easily digested. So you have to pause and think about it during your reading. In the analogous thinking of Chinese philosophy, the intestines and the brain have the same function. What they mean for our food, the brain does with our mental food.

Nowadays, there is a lot of easy talk and writing about a new lifestyle, but a new lifestyle means a major change in behavior. And any new behavior requires a new consciousness. It is not an easy task to come to a new and responsible

consciousness. This demands both time and energy.. I have specifically chosen the compactness of the style of semi-fiction for this book, because I believe that after reading this book repeatedly, the reader can establish a new circuit in their brain
