I found this book very beautiful, very moving, and very helpful for dealing with my fearfulness. Actually, I felt so grateful to Thich Nhat Hunh while reading it, that I was in tears of gratitdude to him for writing this incredible book for all suffering human beings. My heart was filled with love for all in little crying screaming babies still suffering within me and was able to embrace them with love, instead of wanting to throw them out the window for not being able to grow up. I am 84 years old and up to now all this was frozen within me and I was afraid to go there; I will go further and say I was unable to go there -- nothing could make me go there. I can now begin to truly love all my inner babies and children and embrace them, as well as those of rest of us human beings. I then got inspired to read his book Reconciling with the Inner Child, which was even more inspiring and helpful. These books are truly gifts to the world from a great being.
