Sometimes, Enough Is Enough: Finding Spiritual Comfort in a Material World

Front Cover
Cliff Street Books, 2000 - Religion - 148 pages
Tired of rush or pressure? Meditation can inspire and restore spiritual confidence. For many people, however, this spiritual practice is too rigorous and time-consuming to maintain, especially for today's busy professionals. Now Marsha Sinetar explores the concept of a "casual" contemplative life, one that is flexible and informal, tending toward spiritual reflection. Simply changing circumstances will not necessarily lead to the fulfillment of spiritual dreams. What's important, Sinetar says, is a mode of being, or a state of mind: reflective, observant, considerate of eternal things. State of mind in turn creates states of harmony, assurance, and comfort. Here, we learn how to reap the benefits of Sinetar's contemplative practices she's found so critical to the balance and improved health we all desperately crave. Sometimes Enough Is Enough can help us all attain a clearer, cooler state of mind wherever we may find ourselves -- be it a city apartment, a suburban home, or a thatched cottage by the sea.
