Have you reached a point in your life where the old patterns and habits just don't work anymore?

Perhaps it is just a discomfort that you feel, an itch you cannot scratch. Life just doesn't have that same zest it once did. You cannot find satisfaction no matter what you try.

Or perhaps life has life presented you with a situation where you are cornered?

Overview

Have you reached a point in your life where the old patterns and habits just don't work anymore?

Perhaps it is just a discomfort that you feel, an itch you cannot scratch. Life just doesn't have that same zest it once did. You cannot find satisfaction no matter what you try.

Or perhaps life has life presented you with a situation where you are cornered? No matter how you struggle, you cannot go forward and you cannot go backward. Your wife or your husband has just walk out the door leaving you with your life shattered in pieces on the floor. Or the company you have invested the best years of your life has just pulled the plug leaving you to watch your life go down the drain. For years and years, brick by brick, you had painstakingly built your life with all its supports and structures only to watch it collapse like a house of cards.

For those of you who are simply bored you could go on another amazing holiday or buy that new car that makes your heart quicken.

And for those of you with you life shattered in small bits around you, you could start that painful business of rebuilding your life ... only making sure this time it is fortified!

But the holiday comes to an end, the car loses its lovely new smell and no matter how fortified you build your new life you will always be aware that if one single thing is taken away it could all simply collapse around you again.....

What if there is a way through life that is always fresh and new? A way through life that is not not dependent on anyone or anything out there?

'Living with Yourself ' takes you on a voyage of discovery. A discovery of your own self.

Albert Low is not content simply with explaining Zen, he invites you to put into practice its benefits. He uses the words of Descartes, "I think, therefore I am," as a springboard to a deeper pool of wisdom to be found in Zen Buddhism. He not only reveals the roots of Zen spirituality, but also explores the origin of suffering, its consequences and the way beyond suffering. Written with clarity, he uses Christian, Sufi and Hindu sources as well as Zen Buddhist. By so doing, he explains Zen in Western terms, making it accessible both in theory and in practice.
