If you like to read self-help and meditation books, you can save a lot of time and money by just checking this one out. It is a very big read, about 656 pages, and it’s divided into eight sections. This is a book that you can open up anywhere on any given day and learn from. Jon teaches how to let go of petty things in our lives by practicing mindfulness meditation.
When we cling to situations or emotions, we create turmoil in our life. Change is going to occur no matter what. What Jon’s main point in the book is to not only like, hate, or even label these situations and emotions, but to actually embrace them. When we watch them come and go, we see how petty some things really are and it will make you laugh at times even.
If we want to stay healthy and in harmony with our surroundings, we have to stay present. It’s that plain and simple. When we meditate we allow everything to just come and go as it were, and it does not really turn into a “thing” or situation, just a passing thought, emotion, situation, etc. This is how we are to be as healthy as possible and live as stress free as possible.
I gained a lot from this book when I read it a few years back and it still is one of my few favorite books. It has helped me deal with a lot of things in life that I did not really understand as they were happening.
I recommend this books to all readers, big time. Even people that don’t like to read, this book would especially be good for them. It helps us to learn and develop. It helps us to grow and live the fulfilling lives we were meant to live.
