I have almost come to view this book as a kind friend. It is a book I know I will read again and again and continue to benefit from its wisdom. I would enthusiastically recommend it to anyone and everyone, especially those who are looking for guidance in living a more mindful, peaceful life.
Being a zen buddhist munk Thich Nhat Hanh shares great clarity and insight with simplicity and humility to kindly remind us all that in spite of differences we are not enemies by nature. We are interconnected flawed beings and the only way to heal our flaws and the suffering they sustain is by taking responsibility for your inner life. By embracing the dirt inside yourself as a vital medium for inner growth you plant a seed to forgive yourself and others. By healing yourself you take an active part in healing the outer world as well.
The key is practicing mindfull awareness. In a very down to earth fashion Thich Nhat Hahn provides specific simple pointers as well as lessons of the universe. He gently guides the reader towards greater understanding of what meditation is all about and ultimately a greater appreciation of life itself. It all starts by learning how to love your true self beyond your ego as this true self is a vital, inter-connected part of this world and it's beings.
I am in deep gratitude for the healing words and kind guidance of Thich Nhat Hahn. I can heartfully recommend the fundamentals of the mindfull practices recommended in this book. I find it to be working although I often slip due to my 'old programming'. It does not matter that much though so rather than complaining I simply do my best to practice. I breathe, smile and slowly walk the path my life of knowing I am doing good to myself and those around me when being present.
The writing may at times appear simplistic but the truth running beneath the words is undeniable and the seeds of self patience and tolerance will sprout within you if you embrace his teaching.
Buy this gem - read it with an open mind. I am grateful I did.
Just a note... It might sound kinda hokey and weird when you first start reading it. But give it a chance. Seriously.
We love this audiobook. lots of great advice. we are only on Section-7, but we have already started to incorporate few of his advice in to our day to day life. For example, concious breathing and start the day with a big smile. I even bought a couple of ceramic bowls with big smiles drawn on them to remind us to smile :-) it relaxes all the muscles in the face and relaxes the mind and heart. You will not regret getting this book. LOVE IT!
