I had a lot to highlight in this book, and it reconnected me with my daily practice of meditation. We could all use a little more kindness in this world, and when reading you sort of regain your faith in humanity a little.
I bought a few self help sort of books, to try & improve self contentment & happiness & to kill a bit of time at work, when it's quiet.
I started off with this one. I am not a reader to be honest, so I wanted something to break me in. It was easy enough to follow. I needed a dictionary for some of the words, but I understood it.
It's a mix of the dalai lama's principles, but then the western psychologist explains things in a way that we understand with case studies & examples. I believe it works very well. It has made me think differently about things & makes you realise that your happiness is about how you perceive & deal with situations.
The only thing that would be an improvement would be as if there was a summary at the end of the key points. However, it's not the end of the world. I'll read it again & make my own shortened down notes, to remind me of the key principles.
I wish the other books I bought off Amazon were as easy to follow as this one.
The book is that good, I am now going to see if there are books of a similar nature/theme.
A special thanks to Dr. Howard C. Cutler for all the topics treated on this amazing book! It has a nice flow from the beginning to the end covering all the essential aspects of our daily lives even for those who are not into Buddhism! ... YET!!
