This selection from Thich Nhat Hanh’s bestselling The Art of Power illuminates the core Buddhist concept of mindfulness for the Western reader
In The Art of Mindfulness, one of the most revered Buddhist teachers in the world, Thich Nhat Hanh delivers a life changing practice to overcome our overdriven mind, to let go of preoccupations and multitasking and focus solely on the task at hand. By devoting 100% of our attention 100% of the time on what we are doing in the moment, we can alleviate suffering, fear, and anxiety. With the energy of mindfulness and the capacity of looking deeply, we can find the insights to transform and heal any situation.
This book is a good way to bring peace into your life. It is also a good way to take things seriously and make yourself a deep thinker in anything you do.
The book was ok...
If you are interested in learning about mindfulness, then you probably already understand the concepts that are shared in this book. I was disappointed because it didn't give you enough suggestions/tips on exactly how to apply this "art" in your life.
This book needed to be longer.
This life I have lived
This book seems to be the way I have ironically lived to a degree. I also have carried pain experienced from Vietnam as a soldier myself. I learned a lot since then. Searching to fill a sort of emptiness that returns from time to time. I guess the guilt of what a soldier unconsciously holds inside. I am a Mindful man, filled with joy at this time in my life. The book enhances it all the more.
