To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. In a largely materialist society, it is important to know that are alternatives to our mainstream way of living, which is to control, conquer, acquire, consume – almost always a more of everything. I was amused to read how difficult he finds meditation - if a monk finds it difficult, then it's perfectly okay if I struggle too! They cannot handle money, so they rely on alms from the generosity of the public, which means they eat anything that people donate.

Barkley also addresses his outlandish statements and claims, which most people is simply for shock value. How long do we have to atone for our tiny mistakes……it would do all of us good to bear in mind that we’re doing the best we can. Overall a very good quality service from this seller and I would not hesitate to recommend this seller. As someone who meditates, and continues to have an attachment to thought, this is something I can very much relate to. One way or another, if more blood hasn’t reached your brain by the time you’ve finished this book, maybe you’ve been embalmed.It teaches us to understand the nature of our suffering, and tells us it is possible to liberate ourselves from that suffering. The parables that Lindeblad quotes, mainly from the Buddhist tradition (as that was his training) are stories that many of us will have heard told countless times before in one variant or another. When my relentless mind would dictate me how to feel, decide and act and the outcome leaving me even more lost, I stumble upon this book. I quickly found myself reading with a green pen in my and because there was so much I wanted to highlight and quote. I absolutely loved listening to this book, a fascinating life told so beautifully, with humour and humility, a real feeling of calm comes through the pages, what a wonderful book.

He talks about the challenges and benefits of meditation, and gave some insight that helped me understand meditation better.I made lots of highlights throughout this book - sentences and paragraphs that I want to go back to, to re-read and think more deeply about. In 2012, Natthiko Lindeblad was chosen to be the listeners' summer host in the popular Swedish radio show Sommar.

Summary: A manual for living with uncertainty – told in simple everyday language through the perspective of a man who chose to live an extraordinary life, but recognises that most of us will stay closer to home and can nevertheless benefit massively from what he learned along the way. Written as though he is performing one of his teachings, Lindeblad’s I May Be Wrong is his only book. My working life was focussed on efficiency and how I felt most of the time, I now recognise, was 'angry'. The monastery served as a spiritual inn with many guests from Thailand and abroad, and Lindeblad appreciated the environment and the community.I personally I enjoyed the book because I wanted a look a that process behind his antics, and learn more about him as a person. Heaven is for Colton told his parents he left his body during an emergency surgery–and proved that claim by describing exactly what his parents were doing in another part of the hospital during his operation. Though he addresses weighty issues with a light touch and prefers to stir people to think by making them laugh, there’s nothing Charles Barkley shies away from here—not race, not class, not big money, not scandal, not politics, not personalities, nothing.

Best book I’ve read in a long time’ ELLA MILLS, FOUNDER OF DELICIOUSLY ELLAThe Sunday Times bestselling book of comfort and timeless wisdom from former forest monk, Bjoern Natthiko LindebladWe like to think we can determine the path our life takes, but events rarely unfold the way we plan for or expect. Infusing the everyday with heart and grace, this is a wise and soothing handbook for dealing with life’s challenges. Chapters were often based on wisdom he had picked up along the way from his teachers, and he shared his understanding with us whilst talking about his own life experiences. The next important thing is something else he throws at us up front, and I am going to quote it in full because I can speak to the fact that it utterly encapsulates why you should read this book. I can still choose whatever I want to eat within the boundaries of my chosen diet, and I can eat a large and varied meal if I choose to omad (one meal a day).

It's interesting to read about how his life as a monk is now helping him deal with his diagnosis of ALS and his thoughts and perspective on death. We follow him through his years in Thailand, pre-monk, monk-in-training, full-monk, and then his years in 'forest monasteries' outside of Thailand. Also it was great to read that the monks, and gurus have their own insecurities and character defects that need to be worked on, and despite the efforts of years one can fall again into darkness again! But I do believe it is helpful to live life for what it actually is – that it is uncertain and impermanent.
