Why? Well, recently I got super-busy. So of course, I stopped meditating in the mornings. It’s funny how we stop meditating/exercising/eating well/going to bed early/[insert what you do here] – when we most need it.
As my overwhelm increased I popped upstairs (where I keep my favourite inspirational book selection) and re-found this book. “True Love” is the perfect antidote to stress – and encouraged me gently back to my meditation and to be more self-loving.
Subtitled, “A Practice for Awakening the Heart” Thich Nhat Hanh (pronounced Titch Nat Hann – a Vietnamese Zen Buddhist Monk) charmingly explains powerful spiritual concepts in simple, blessedly short chapters – ideal for busy people like you and me.
Chapter lengths range from 4 to a maximum of 10 pages and some of my favourite chapter titles are “The Four Aspects of Love”, “Being There When Someone is Suffering”, “Caring for our Pain” and a fun one called “Telephone Meditation”. Another thing I love is that you don’t need to read the book sequentially, you can just dive in and read a chapter that appeals – or choose one at random…
So, I love this fabulous little book! Get back on your spiritual path, get back into meditation – read a quick chapter before going to sleep and you’ll wake up calm and inspired.
