Hi, as a 24 year old who has been living in New York City for the past 3 years, I found myself dealing with issues of self that I not only had never experienced, but had not even been forewarned of. 'Issues' like severe anxiety, loss of motivation and purpose, and a complete deadlock on finding any method or motivation of attaining the goals that I wanted to achieve for myself whether professionally, spiritually, physically, you name it. What I came to find out through reading this book, was that all these 'issues' came down to this one central question:
What is my 'purpose' for being alive and how can I attain it?
I found the lessons and experiences shared in this book to be PRICELESS! I have ran up credit card debt and time paying for classes and books, LOOKING FOR ANSWERS to questions that I felt were fundamental to my life. Thich Nhat Hanh does a miraculous job of communicating his thoughts and ideas in a way that allowed me to implement what I was reading instantly.
I think the most important take-away for me was the epiphany (the MIRACLE) of learning that when I am able to be present, I automatically give myself permission to be the most authentic version of myself; I am able to instantly elevate the life that I would like to live and contagiously elevate the lives of those around me.
This book has truly been a miracle for me and I am excited to read the other writings from this phenomenal man.
Please give the book a try! What do you have to lose?!?!
