Awaken Every Day: 365 Buddhist Reflections to Invite Mindfulness and Joy

We rated this book:


In the midst of our constantly busy days, it makes sense to take some time to reflect and quiet your soul for a while. Scientific studies have demonstrated what sages have known all along: we need mindfulness and meditations to truly experience harmony and joy. This book helps you insert some mindfulness into each day with three hundred and sixty-five thoughts and questions to help you lead a better, calmer, more reflective and meaningful life. These reflections are specifically Buddhist, many referencing statements by the Buddha or by famous Buddhists. Many concern better ways to practice Dharma, or how to share this way of life. But even if you are not a Buddhist you will find most of these reflections applicable. The questions and thoughts help you consider how to live well and how to live a good life in harmony with yourself and others. Most of these are common teachings to many religions and are compatible with most belief systems that emphasize concern for self and others. Teachings on compassion, habits, suffering, right action, and much more will give you something to think about and a small way to work on improvement every day, so you can grow into the joyful, harmonious person you have the potential to be.
