Very wise words on how to look at different scenarios in ones life and act accordingly. This book reminds us that we are not just one but are part of the universe. It really makes you think about how you treat others and ultimately how this affects you in becoming a better person. A book to take your time reading, time to slow down and process thoughts.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, but it will be very useful for future reference. There are many short pieces of advice and sayings which, for those who struggle with everyday life, may just take the "edge" off things. One of the best quotes I have ever heard from a professional is "Remember - not ALL stress is yours"
I found it very enjoyable to begin with but, as it went on and I realised the format (explanation followed by platitudes), I got a bit tired of it. I am new to mindfulness and found this partially helpful.
I came across this as it was recommended to me by someone I greatly admire. I am so glad I did read it. Its full of anecdotes, relatable quotes and beautiful illustrations. It is split into easy to follow, short chapters with overarching themes. I came away feeling less alone, more at peace and armed with positive actions to take in my life to improve its quality. A truly wonderful book. Also - the size and print quality of this book was also clearly well thought out - Excellent!
I love this book. Very simple in its message but very life affirming. You know all of these things but you question why and he states why ; very succinctly. Makes you think but also makes you realise that life is actually great but only if you work at it, in a plodding kind of way. Love the principles of Buddhism and the philosophy. I like that Haenim doesn't slate other religions to gain supremacy. It's refreshing to find a book that you can digest slowly rather than devour at breakneck speed.
