This may sound rather dramatic and perhaps it is, but I cannot recommend this book enough. I believe it has changed my life.
The three treasures of compassion, simplicity and humility are to be found here in abundance. I do myself a favor every time I read it.
through short anecdotes, meditations, and stories, hanh encourages us to return, again and again, to the fullness of the present moment. "all around us, how many lures are set by our fellows and ourselves?" hanh asks. "in a single day, how many times do we become lost and scattered because of them?"
protect your fate, your peace, your joy, hanh advises. choose your companions carefully; stand alert, a guard at the gates of your mind.
peace isn't some future event, hanh reminds us, but something we can access now, by reorienting our relationship to the outer world, to ourselves. begin where you are, he says. breathe. smile. love. it's simple :)
try not to escape. wash the dishes, walk, answer the phone, eat, and do all of it with an abiding awareness. love in action, he says. settle within yourself and bring each thought into the sunlight of awareness. "in this light," he writes, "no boundary exists between the sacred and the profane."
thank you, thich nhat hanh. five stars.
This one contains a wealth of simple practices that readers can apply immediately. It’s lighter on the philosophy than some of his other books, but it does also contain a lot of really simple and striking practical metaphors to help you shift your perception of some long-standing insecurities and obstacles. It is a beautifully written text, a rallying cry for compassion, and calming balm for the soul. When you’re ready to see the world differently, read this.
I have already recommended this book to many of my friends. Now I’m recommending it to you, friend. The reading of this book could be life-changing for someone new to these practices.
