Hanh, Thich Nhat. Taming the Tiger Within: Meditations on Transforming Difficult Emotions (p. 106). Penguin Publishing Group. Kindle Edition.
Taming the Tiger Within is a unique and humbling verse to what most popular magazines and books try to hint towards: the avoidance of bad and the monument of changing one's self. However, Taming the Tiger Within isn't focusing on these modern-day and sometimes self-destructive concepts that try to avoid our own faults. Thich Nhat Hanh has given readers the conduit to empower ourselves to be mindful rather than scared, embrace rather than avoid, and to understand what we fear most; the unknown.
This book isn't for someone wanting to 'fix' themselves or 'change' aspects of themselves. This book is meant to make you aware of certain forms of emotions and habits. Anger is a theme that all of us as humans can empathize with. Rather than avoiding or changing our own 'anger', Thich Nhat Hanh discusses how we must become mindful of our anger and understand it rather than act irrationally to an anger that we ourselves do not quite fully understand. The messages within this book resonated with me as I have started to become more mindful and embrace the concept that anger or harm against one is anger or harm against one's self.
Taming the Tiger Within brings the reader to the present moment and to help the reader acknowledge anger and strong emotions and to understand them. After reading this book I feel I have a better understanding of my own emotions; therefore, having a better grasp upon them. We are all scared of the unknown and this book has helped me understand my unknowns; the root of strong emotions such as anger and how to understand it to better deal with it.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about their emotions and how to understand what causes them. The words on the pages display many meanings to each person and I can guarantee this book will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to take-on the worst of Mondays.
It is about quality of thought rather than compilation of words.
