Overview

As human beings, we strive to make life go smoothly for ourselves and others, but that is expecting from the world something it cannot give. Ajahn Brahm, the bestselling author of Who Ordered This Truckload of Dung—and Mindfulness, Bliss, and Beyond, presents in this new work wisdom for learning to abandon the headwind of false expectations and follow instead the path of understanding in order to find true joy within. By releasing our attachment to past and future, hope and fear, we can settle into the stillness underlying all our thoughts and discover the bliss of the present moment.

Editorial Reviews

Spirituality & Practice
"In this well-done and illuminating work, Brahm shines a light on the spiritual practice of mindfulness."
Toni Bernhard
"With his characteristic simplicity, clarity, and humor, the British-born Thai forest monk, Ajahn Brahm, offers a prescription for treating dissatisfaction with our lives, whether it be difficulties with our health or any circumstance not to our liking. His instructions on meditation and on mindfulness practice are simple and clear enough for new practitioners, while at the same time offering profound insights for those with years of experience. Brahm teaches us the "art of disappearing" into stillness, which gives rise to contentment with life as it is at this very moment. This is Ajahn Brahm's prescription for true peace and profound happiness. What a gift of the Dhamma!"
BuddhaSpace
"This book is an invaluable companion for your journey to your true self, the not-self that lies at the end of the Buddha's path."
