Enlightenment is within reach -- 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If you're searching for revelation and contentment, look no further than a handshake, a cup of coffee -- even your laundry pile. The most mundane details of life contain zen's profound truths, if you're of the mind to look for them.

By awakening to and embracing the zen in your life, you'll listen, watch, eat, work, laugh, sleep, and breathe your way to truth -- every moment of every day.

A very pleasant way to start or end the day. The introduction gives the book an aura of epicness that the banality of the book itself would otherwise not have. Read full review

A single moon Bright and clear In an unclouded sky: Yet still we stumble In the world's darkness. Have a good look — stop the breath, peel off the skin, and everybody ends up looking the same. No matter how long you live, the result is not altered. Cast off the notion that "I exist.
Page 102 - I'm practicing, I'm not thinking about anything else. I'm just doing yoga. Afterward, I take the benefits from yoga and help other people. I take a feu older women who live alone to do their shopping, and then I help them unload the groceries. Yoga undoubtedly makes me a better person.
