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!!
