The Tao of Kenny Loggins
Buy on Amazon
"I simply needed to know I was wanted," Kenny Loggins once said. This comes from a man who knew how much people loved him and adored his songs, from a man who has been probably more productive in his life than ninety nine percent of the population, from a man who lived his life discovering His Way, His Tao, and never stopped.
There's a lesson to be learned here, the lesson that the great thinkers of the ages, from Laozi (Lao Tzu), Buddha and Christ, to "enlightened" era philosophers like Kant, Hegel and Schopenhauer, to the modern spiritual leaders and thinkers of our age have been pondering and yet still did not have the answer to - "Can A Man Reach Perfection, the Spirit, the Divine, if you will?"
Or perhaps there's no need to actually reach perfection and it is indeed the Way, the Tao that is our lives that matters the most? Are we drifting aimlessly in a sea of change or are we looking for a beacon to guide us?
For Kenny Loggins, that connection to the spiritual has always been his ability to, as he put it, " Stop and listen to the song playing in my head." This for him was the light, the love, the sense of Interconnectedness of the world as a whole and his songs are the records of what the Spirit imparted to him when he would allow himself to listen.
For the man who was so connected to his inner self and to the spiritual around him, Kenny Loggins to this day is still discovering his Tao and that idea of never stopping to "listen to the songs that are playing in our heads," is, perhaps, his greatest gift to us.
I hope you will embark on this journey with Kenny Loggins and me and we will all emerge wiser, better, and filled with the Love that is easy to find if we just stop and listen.

For those who are familiar with the music of Kenny Loggins will instantly recognize the deep spiritual essence that is within his music. The Tao of Kenny Loggins is a collection of song verses, excerpts from interviews, letters, journals, and comments made on stage. It is constructed in a similar manner as Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching. The emphases of this collection is to demonstrate the spiritual essence of love, of the innerconnectiveness of people, and the Divine Spirit that transcends life as we know it.
To quote Kenny Loggins on the significance of these thoughts to him, here are his words, "My words come from my experience. They are my truth and as such are authentic. Love is Magic, because it is outside the mind's ability to comprehend, deny, or take credit for, and because of that, the mind must let go even to experience it."
