About this deal

That's a good thing to try to remember - we seem to be so certain of everything so it's worth wondering if you are actually right - you might be wrong. I quickly found myself reading with a green pen in my and because there was so much I wanted to highlight and quote. Plain and simple, it's about how to relate to your own thoughts and emotions in a way that makes your life more enjoyable, more free, brighter.

He learnt and noted the changes within himself from the teachings of Buddhist wisdom during that 17-year sojourn. As this novel was penned by a successful corporate executive who had been dissatisfied with his professional life for a while, it will appeal to those questioning why their career is not enough.I'm not going to try to put those words any differently, because that is EXACTLY what this book is not and what it is. I don’t trust life inherently, but I do trust my capacity to change, because I know how much I’ve changed – or rather learnt to understand myself better so I can stop repeating unhealthy behaviour. With wide margins on each page, there is room for writing your thoughts when highlighting text is not enough. In this international bestseller, former forest monk Bjoern Natthiko Lindeblad draws on his humbling journey towards navigating uncertainty – helping you, with kindness and good humour, to:- Let go of the small stuff – Accept the things you cannot control – Manage difficult emotions- Find stillness at busy times- Face yourself – and others – without judgment Infusing the everyday with heart and grace, this is a wise and soothing handbook for dealing with life’s challenges. One of my favourite lessons was when one of the monks taught a simple message to say to yourself when you are feeling troubled saying "I may be wrong, I may be wrong, I may be wrong,".

He always expresses his point of view, and that counts positively in a world infested by insubstantial speeches. I often pass the ruins of a monastery when I’m out for a walk, and I wonder what it would have been like to live there four or five hundred years ago.

Björn moves between monasteries throughout his life as a monk and it was interesting to see how they were all so different. Huge thanks to Tandem Collective for letting me join your read-along and all the lovely fellow blogger’s for all the great discussions. He grew up in Sweden, studied economics (without questioning whether it was what he really wanted to do), started to forge a very successful career (without questioning whether it was what he really wanted to do). When the Dalai Lama adds his words to your frontispiece, I'm inclined to think it doesn't really matter how the rest of the world responds to your book.

He loves his home state but I think this would have been hilarious because although he can be a serious guy, but I have seen many interviews where he seems to be quite a jokester.

Easier said than done, but the next time I’m in a ‘heated debate’ I’m going to try to remember this advice.
