The book is also very edgy. Pedram very directly confronts the BS of society that we all see-- the false images, ideals and expectations that torment so many. How do you "selectively reject" certain parts of the BS of society while ALSO maintaining a part of it? Pedram helps you navigate this with a very PRACTICAL guide to help you "transcend while also being present." Easier said than done, but the whole idea of The Urban Monk is designed to help you craft space for yourself to feel great, while also staying connected.
The Urban Monk is brilliant and totally unique. It is also completely devoid of any "woo woo" weirdness that might turn you off. It is relentlessly practical, and relentlessly interesting. There is so much in here. If you are the kind of person who deep down is "very conventional" this book is not for you. If you are the kind of person open to new ideas, open to improving yourself- check this out for sure. Highly recommended!!
I have been on the path for most of my life and was already doing a lot of this, but I am still getting many great tools and insights.
I highly recommend this book to anybody dealing with stress and the many levels of hating life. Hopefully you can follow the advice of this Sage Monk and make your life a place you love to live.
I am amazed to note, most people who really need this book don't read books. So if you are thinking of taking a chance with a book, this is the right one.
