I did not like the title. My roommate told me that I should buy it for that reason.
I am glad I did.
This book helped me achieve a level of peace and happiness I had never experienced previously.
I gave my original copy away and felt that I had strayed from my spiritual path. Perhaps I stumbled. :)
I decided it was time to re-read this awesome book.
I already have books by Chodron and Suzuki. These are wonderful books written by Zen Masters. They are excellent references and guides. But perhaps a little too distant to provide the inspiration that I found here.
I chose Larkin's book because it puts more of a human face on Zen practice. I get more from this work because it is written with humor from a western point of view. Someone who started down this road from a point closer to where I now stand. These are stories and lessons that relate more to me and hopefully will continue to prod me forward. And I thank Geri for sharing them.
Forgetting for a moment Larkin's obviously huge heart, insatiable curiosity, warmth, kindness, and compassion, what makes "Stumbling" such a wonderful book is that Larkin asks no one to clean a kitchen she herself isn't willing to clean a thousand times.
