Parenthetically, her other books, "Everyday Zen", and "Now Zen" are equally worthwhile. "Now Zen" is a little compilation book and an absolute gem. It is the first book I would give to anyone who was interested in Zen or what is so special about Nothing.
i read it passionately after a bike accident from my icy couch.
a simple , pure language and she never fails to touch the core of life.
her explanation of how self-centered human mind produces thoughts and feelings sheds light on the issues of consciousness and emotion , and the book does this while always staying in close touch with everyday life as we know it.
i'm keeping this book with me and will read it again and again and again.
a precious gem from the author to the rest of humanity.
