This is a beautiful book. So small and yet so profound! I love it! The way the author describes the simplicity of how to enter the present moment, mindfulness and mediation is simply wonderful.

It is a pure Zen book. It is very practical and very useful in our day-to-day life. The techniques described in the book are so beautiful and you can apply them immediately. You can literally feel the love coming out of the book. It reads like a poem. There are also included very touching stories that we can all take a valuable lesson from. You can definitely say that the author himself is a deep spiritual Zen master with a lot of compassion and love towards this humanity.

Few experts from the book:

This is what he says about the vice of drinking:
“I propose that you drink your whiskey mindfully, and I am sure that if you drink this way for a few weeks, you will stop drinking alcohol.

In true love, there is no place for pride. I beg you to remember this.

You are a manifestation. You are impermanent. Yet you are full of the elements of the cosmos. You are a miracle. You are already what you are seeking to become.

Meditation is not about turning yourself into a battlefield where one side fights the other, because the basis of Buddhist meditation is non-duality. The habits of drinking alcohol or getting angry are also you, and therefore you must treat them with great tenderness and nonviolence. The essential point is not to create conflict, a fight, within yourself. So we begin by simple recognition. Then when the energy of mindfulness is strong and you have concentration, you can practice deeply into the nature of whatever is arising, and from that comes insight. Insight liberates you from all negative tendencies.

A peaceful read and one which I read because Janet Conner recommended it in one of her talks online. It helps to focus your way of living in the present.

I've read a number of his books and they are all excellent. I enjoyed this one and the one about Anger - Buddhist Wisdom for cooling the flames. You won't regret reading this book.
