Early on,” says Washington Post columnist and ESPN talk show host Michael Wilbon in his Introduction, “Barkley made his peace with mixing it up, and decided the consequences were very much worth it to him. Björn Natthiko Lindeblad, a former forest monk in Thailand, relates his experience of training to properly direct his thoughts which can benefit all. He talked of visiting heaven and described events that happened before he was born and how he spoke with family members he’d never met. Here I am, regularly feeling sorry for myself (again) when I intermittently fast and eat a “strict” diet.

How to be present and have courage to welcome uncertainty in my live is what this book has bought me in midst of despair.You’ll find yourself highlighting passages in this book, but I’m going to share some of what resonated with me. The next time you sense a conflict brewing, when you feel things are about to come to a head with someone, just repeat this mantra to yourself three times, sincerely and convincingly – in any language you want worries will evaporate, like dew from the grass on a and your summer morning. He quotes one of his teachers, Ajahn Jayasor as saying The important thing here is not how efficiently we do this, but how we all feel afterwards. I read this book a few years ago and it was entertaining, I barely remember any of it, but its Charles!

With our potential to maintain a peaceful state of mind, it is possible to remain optimistic in the face of difficulties.A deeply insightful view on life, we often place value on materialistic goods and the success of our lives on what we have rather than who we are. Disappointment that 9/11 didn't have a sustained impact on peoples kindness to one another - a permanence, to be better and more respectful of each other. He states he does think before talk, that he know exactly what he's saying; even when he says something some people consider controversial or outrageous, he have thougth about it before he said it. Uumlber den AutorBjoern Natthiko LindebladKlappentext\ This book really, really will stay with me forever. 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.

When things happen in life outwith our control it’s good to remember there’s more to life and to value yourself as a person, and that person is who you choose to be, you choose how you react to events. However many readers, including myself, were probably hoping more for the dirt on former teammates, coaches and media staff. I have found more emotional freedom ever since I learnt to examine the reality of my emotions at a distance, so I deeply related to that statement. I'm happy to note that Charles, for the most part, enjoyed his playing days and the fans in Philadelphia.Although Bjorn becomes a Buddist monk, there isn't a heavy focus on Buddhism in the book, more about the texsts from the religion that he lea Irned from, and from which we can all learn.

I enjoyed the various parables that he's learned from his along the way, they illustrated how our lives aren't so different and we face many of the same problems.

If there’s one thing Charles Barkley knows, it’s the crying need for honest, open discussion in this country—the more uncomfortable the subject, the more necessary the dialogue. 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. And if the discussion leader can be as wise, irreverent, (occasionally) profane and (consistently) funny as Charles Barkley, so much the better. He then found love and also loss, the experience and description of his fathers at the end of the book really touched me.As the book asserts that psychological suffering is, in many ways, caused by what’s happening inside of us, the text is arranged with you in mind. When the Dalai Lama adds his words to your frontispiece, I'm inclined to think it doesn't really matter how the rest of the world responds to your book. He talks about the challenges and benefits of meditation, and gave some insight that helped me understand meditation better. Infusing the everyday with heart and grace, this is a wise and soothing handbook for dealing with life's challenges.
