Jewel in the Mud: Zen Musings Harmony Kent Indie
blurb: ‘Happiness does not depend on what you have or who you are. It relies
solely on what you think.’
Have you ever felt angry? Upset? Hurt? Overwhelmed? Not up to it?
This book, with its pithy teachings based in Zen, will help you find the jewel in the inevitable mud of life rather than wallowing in that mud.
Not only does each day offer us a new start, a chance to press reset, but so does each and every breath. It’s never too late to be who you were meant to be, and your history doesn’t have to keep you trapped. And nor do you have to waste endless energy on worrying about all that the future may bring.
Written in an engaging manner, Jewel in the Mud invites you to search within and make your world the way you want it to be. It doesn’t give you strict instructions or homework, but instead, invites you to dive deeper, search further, and question your assumptions.
The book has handy thoughts for the week, and can be read in one go, weekly, or dipped into at random. In short, it has been designed to fit in with you and your needs.
Learn how to take control of your life with these Zen Musings.
My Review: I enjoyed this book very much. It has little lessons for each week of the year that show you that life is not so much about defeat or failing but instead about reaching beyond and pulling yourself through. Even in finding happiness. It doesn’t matter what religion you are, you can learn something from these little nuggets of wisdom.
