This book is a nice small size, so it lends itself nicely to going places with me.
Just writing this review makes me want to go cozy up and read a couple pages. I usually just flip through until something catches my attention, and read a couple pages.
This book has a way of centering me that is especially valuable when I am away from my sangha. It helps re-connect me to something bigger.
Anyway, I liked it so much, I immediately ordered another one of her books: "When Things Fall Apart". Also, wonderful. She's definitely one of my new favorites. Eloquent, concise, simple, profound, timeless and so relevant to life.
p. 28: "the desire to change fundamentally a form of aggression toward oneself...If you throw out your neurosis, you also throw out your wisdom."
p. 60: Life is such a miracle, and a lot of the time we feel only resentment about how it's all working out for us."
It also includes some of her wonderful teaching stories:
pp. 65-7: samurai who asked a master to explain heaven and hell
pp. 75-7: God with ½ red and ½ blue hat walking down the middle of a street.
So, you can read "Wisdom of No Escape" for completeness, but consider owning a copy of "Awakening Loving Kindness" too.
