A beautiful, heartfelt guide to the essentials of life,
This review is from: Start Where You Are: A Guide to Compassionate Living: How to Accept Yourself and Others (Kindle Edition)
Chodron's writing is perfectly balanced, with a warm, compassionate feel to it. Without ever being judgemental or didactic, she gently encourages you to realise the nature of life, to shift your focus away from the past and the future, to accept and relax into the present moment and to focus on others rather than yourself. Whilst some Buddhist terminology is used, the messages are nonetheless clear. It's a beautiful work; subtle, yet immensely powerful in its message and teachings. I am truly grateful to have found this book and can't recommend it highly enough.
