I'm not yet half way through this book, but I am in awe of the intersectionalities of my day-to-day self and who I really am at my innermost being. In my day-to-day, I now recognize I've been out of my personal work and practice for the purpose of living to get by or make it through, versus being present in the moment and understanding my emotions, reactions, assumptions and the negative energy I impose upon myself and others. I am a Christian, but believe the practice of a Zen lifestyle will not only deepen my faith, but allow me to be more Christ-like in my prescence of self and interactions with others. I highly-recommend this read if you're tired of simply existing and responding and want to have a greater sense of purpose, joy and peace.
