than ever, this book is so relevant and needs to be read by everyone i have read a few of Thich Nhat Hanh s books and every one leaves me open to finding compassion for myself and for my fellow man this book gives me hope despite a very sad state of affairs we are now in and makes me believe it is possible for this world of ours to work together and find a solution to the hatred and anger which seems to be getting worse and worse i pray we can start to become one before it is too late.
If you ve read any of Thich Nhat Hanh s books, parts of this one will seem familiar to you Hanh s message of mindfulness is so simple that it often seems to need little expanding upon Yet I find it remarkable that heeding such simple advice can be so difficult for me.Any of his books is always a welcome nudge back onto the path, or at least near where it begins, and a reminder of the importance of compassion, clarity and patience in my daily life and my dealings with others.
This is the first book of Thich Nhat Hanh I ve read and I found it to be an excellent start I had heard of Mr Hanh what is the appropriate title for a Buddhist monk from a variety of sources but had never read any of his writings until I came across this book at the Montgomery County Library I tend to be skeptical about how compassion can be such a force to change people but then I have a very low opinion of human nature humans, by and large, tend towards the lowest common denominator in their a [...]
I wish that this book, or even parts of this book, could be required reading for all people It was published in 2005, and many parts of the book are related to talks given shortly after 9 11 This book is just as relevant now, if not Our country is still a place that is steeped in hate and distrust of one another, and if only we could try to be compassionate in our daily lives, if our leaders could try to listen deeply to one another, I agree, we could work together towards a peaceful world If [...]
Thich Nhat Hanh s way of dealing with life is admirable It is simple in keeping with his practice of Zen I think that seeds of truth very important to plant and carefully tend as the sprouts mature There is likely no single truth, but many, as always the Zen and Buddhist traditions of self awareness inspire me deeply I can be the best version of being in this world The NOW is of utmost importance, it deserves and requires our undivided attention.
A short read The title says it all In every day life we are aware that terrorism can happen What about the terrorism within ourselves It s easy enough to be afraid in a world like this where even pollution, politics, and money can be considered terrorists This book was written post 9 11 when people were hysterical and losing their peace of mind Read it and wonder how we can ease our fears and further the path toward peaceful living.
The words calm as you read them Like the rhythm of a good prayer Thich Nhat Hanh s simple metaphors reveal deep truths about the human experience At times he becomes overly political However the best passages are not few or far between and they tend to resonated with a deep timeless truth.
Beautiful book I wish Americans would pick this book up and read it I wish our entire society would begin working in a direction of healing I think we would be wonderful examples to the world if we even considered Thich Nhat Hanh s advice
I read this book a few years ago and found it inspiring and at the same time alarming as our nation pursued a policy of pre emptive war Thich Nhat Hanh has such depth of experience through his work with engaged Buddhist resistance to war.
I did feel zen I did It felt like ecstasy It lasted almost a whole day.
I have recently become interested in Thich Nhat Hanh, and bought a few of his books I will write about this one once I am further along Never really captivated me never finished.
Another meaningful book by Thich Nhat Hanh This one feels particularly relevant and practical right now with his suggestion to respond to terrorism by seeking to understand others.
Every political leader, from grassroots activists to heads of state, needs to read this book.
wondering what a liberal response to terrorism would be, this is it Not the best airplane book though.
A bit repetitive and na ve in my view I support the idea of living mindfully I agree we must not live in fear.
We should all strive to think and live this way
