This review is from: Mindfulness and Money: The Buddhist Path to Abundance (Hardcover)
I picked up this book by chance, while I was looking for a book about "mindfulness". The word "mindfulness" has been used in many contexts including philosophies, Buddhism, psychology and Yoga. But what makes this book stand out from the other books is to focus particularly on the relationship between our own faith (or beliefs/ ethics) and our real attitude towards money. This book will show how we can reflect our values when dealing with such matters.
Having witnessed many people (including myself) who struggle to reflect their values when it comes to money/work matters, I found this book surprisingly refreshing and enormously helpful.
The book shows many examples of real people from all walks of life, it also describes how we can live "skilfully" (rather than be judged as "good" or "bad"). There are many practical exercises that help you to assess your values regarding these hidden issues and it is worth trying them by yourself and with your family/friends.
If you come to the point where you see some conflict between money (work) and your inner voice, this is a book you should read, regardless of your background or faith.
