Those looking for ways to process and manage fear.
In a nutshell:
Zen master Nhat Hanh shares thoughts related to processing, confronting and addressing fear.
I took so much away from this book, but some highlights:
“When we climb the hill together, we don’t need to make an effort; we enjoy every step.”
“Each of us is life without limit.”
“We cannot remove violence with hatred and anger. We can only remove violence and fear with compassion and love.
Why I chose it:
I really enjoy Nhat Hanh’s writing. Also, I can always use some help in the fear department.
What it left me feeling:
I find reviewing books on spirituality and mindfulness a bit challenging because I think they are such personal experiences. Like most books, people will take away different things based on what they need and what they are feeling at the moment.
What I can say about this book is that I found Nhat Hanh’s stories and way of writing about fear to be beautiful and meaningful to me, and I know that the many different exercises included will be helpful on my journey.
I think his writing is accessible and easy to understand but still gets me thinking, and that’s just what I need.
