Thich Nhat Hanh is a magical philosopher and writer... words are barely able to convey the power and breadth of ideas, written with such concise simplicity, in his masterful writings. he stands among the great philosophers and spiritual teachers of all time and he is one of the rare masters who can articulate with such peaceful, easy clarity.
25 years ago, i was introduced to his philosophy and writing with a gift of "the miracle of mindfulness" and have resonated and grown continually with his teachings of living in the "present" ever since... once you read it and get it, you will never forget and never be the same... you can not erase it...it is with you forever...and, of course, washing dishes will never be the same.
he is truly inspiring by articulating how to be "present" with such ease and understanding... his writing is for all; the academic, the layman, the advanced psychological professional, the veteran, the novice, etc. there is no one that can not relate to and benefit from his teachings and exercises, if you will, on being mindful and present (yes, redundant to many). my belief is there is more power in being "present", than any other single psychological philosophy... and Thich Nhat Hanh articulates it and teaches "ease without effort" ... always succinct and his writing is as magical as his concepts.
i just loaned out "the miracle of mindfulness" to a friend who is either in a state of anxiety in the "future" or a state of depression in the "past" ... rarely, if ever, productively at peace in the "present" ... she left with it, eager and optimistic to begin the process of healing and advancing her psychology to living always in the present...
in my mind, "you are here" furthers the philosophy of mindfulness and living joyfully, peacefully, and entirely fulfilled by actively living in the "present"...
the enormity of self-improvement philosophers and teachers is overwhelming... choices of books are endless... but, if you want a simple, yet profound easy to read author, than you would be hard pressed to beat Thich Nhat Hanh.
with deepest gratitude, Thank you, Thich Nhat Hanh and all who helped bring you and "You Are Here" to me and to others whom i will share it with...
most sincerely, deke . :-)
As soon as I finished this book, I wanted to start practicing mindfulness meditation and I wanted to start living mindfully!!
Top international reviews
It is a pure Zen book. It is very practical and very useful in our day-to-day life. The techniques described in the book are so beautiful and you can apply them immediately. You can literally feel the love coming out of the book. It reads like a poem. There are also included very touching stories that we can all take a valuable lesson from. You can definitely say that the author himself is a deep spiritual Zen master with a lot of compassion and love towards this humanity.
Few experts from the book:
This is what he says about the vice of drinking:
“I propose that you drink your whiskey mindfully, and I am sure that if you drink this way for a few weeks, you will stop drinking alcohol.
In true love, there is no place for pride. I beg you to remember this.
You are a manifestation. You are impermanent. Yet you are full of the elements of the cosmos. You are a miracle. You are already what you are seeking to become.
Meditation is not about turning yourself into a battlefield where one side fights the other, because the basis of Buddhist meditation is non-duality. The habits of drinking alcohol or getting angry are also you, and therefore you must treat them with great tenderness and nonviolence. The essential point is not to create conflict, a fight, within yourself. So we begin by simple recognition. Then when the energy of mindfulness is strong and you have concentration, you can practice deeply into the nature of whatever is arising, and from that comes insight. Insight liberates you from all negative tendencies.”
It is a very practical way of how to overcome negative emotions and bad habits, yet I must say that even though it is a very good approach I found even more profound techniques in the books of Samael Aun Weor, techniques that go even deeper. Samael Aun Weor goes into such depths of everything; be it meditation, self-observation, consciousness, universe, science, things beyond death, ghosts, aliens, kabbalah, all religions, extinct civilizations, unexplained mysteries etc. and unites them like pearls on a string.
Myself, being a person who wants to know everything, I love the way of explaining things by Samael Aun Weor because it addresses many aspects of life and certainly many needs of humanity. He simply puts everything together like a huge puzzle.
So for people who want to go even beyond Buddhism I would definitely recommend books of Samael Aun Weor.
