“There is beauty calling to us everyday, every hour, but we are rarely in a position to listen….If we don’t silence ourselves–if our mind, our body, are full of noise–then we can’t hear beauty’s call.” So begins this remarkable and accessible book about how to really live the moments that are given to us. If you’re like me, you have an internal radio that never shuts off, and it’s not healthy–to keep consuming our own thoughts like a cow chewing its own cud. According to the author, nonthinking is an act, and it requires patience and practice and, yes, silence. So much great advice throughout this book: being aware of your responses to people and events around you, radiating joy, and really listening. Loved this book; it’s already made a difference.
