Compact little book that basically reminds you about the art of listening and about effective communication and how these things help us to be more loving to ourselves and to others. Its one of those that you can pick up and read again and again. It's a short book and written in a manner that makes you feel as though you are having a conversation with a trusted friend. I liked it. Would read it again.
This is one of several books I have by Thich Nhat Hanh. His style is simple and informative but never judgemental. He carefully and thoroughly works through what makes a relationship of any kind work and what needs to happen if it isn't working. This is not a quick fix but a way of relating to significant others. in our life. His explanation of deep listening is very useful as so few of us really know how to do it, whatever our profession, and yet it s fundamental to understanding others and being understood. Really if we can't and don't know how to really hear the other person, then there is little hope for the relationship.His compassion shines through and he reminds us that if we can be compassionate to our selves, we can be compassionate to others and so much more tolerant of what we perceive, through our own very personal filter, as their short comings. He uses examples to illustrate his point and if you want more fulfilling relationships with family , partners and friends, this is a good place to start for lay people or professionals. Highly recommended.
Could be seen to be 'helpful' or 'wise' but really as Jesus Christ is the only way, this encourages 'God as self' - the oldest lie I creation: Galatians 1:8-9
But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed!
What can possibly be said that hasn't already been said about Thich Nhat Hanh, his teachings and his wonderful books? Probably very little...
This is a small, pocket book that can easily be read in one sitting. True to the author's style, his teachings are so profoundly simple - so simple that perhaps we have forgotten to apply them. The content illustrates and advises how to really understand Love, how to love others and (equally importantly) how to love yourself. Meditation is the underlying way forward, but you don't have to be a meditating Zen monk to understand and benefit from this book.
Like all of Thich Nhat Hanh's book I highly recommend 'True Love'
Wonderful !! Started reading this book with an open mind and found the first few pages to be a little simplistic ,however as the book goes on it really opens up your mind to a new way of thinking.He has a way of explaining in a direct and easy way how to open hour heart and mind in our daily lives.A great book and can be read from any chapter.
Must read for everyone who wants to know about 'love' and relationships . Of course, this doesn't just mean love between you and your partner, but all of our relationships. Loved reading this and it helps to open your heart and restore your compassion.
This is a very short book; it can be read within an hour. The message is also very simple; we should love unconditionally, which is based on the philosophy of non-attachment and mindfulness. Thich Nhat Hanh applies core buddhist concepts and applies it to romantic love. It is sound advice and will probably help in any type of relationship. The only thing is the book is brief, so don't expect a long read.
