About this deal

Without the generous sharing of their insights, who would I have become, or worse, who would I still be stuck in?

You’ll find yourself highlighting passages in this book, but I’m going to share some of what resonated with me. I found it interesting how he took the lessons he learnt from his life as a monk back into 'everyday' life in Sweden.Björn Natthiko Lindeblad, a former forest monk in Thailand, relates his experience of training to properly direct his thoughts which can benefit all. A girl walks along a beach seeing hundreds of starfish drying in the Sun and is throwing them from the beach back into the sea. Goodness me, in a book about mindfulness, compassion, and the life of a forest monk, surely they could have found a better simile than that. With our potential to maintain a peaceful state of mind, it is possible to remain optimistic in the face of difficulties.

I'd love a modern take on his thoughts in this book, plus new ones that have come about in over two decades since it was written. By completing your purchase, you agree to Audible's Conditions of Use and authorise Audible to charge your designated card or any other card on file. But there’s one really clumsy simile in the book, when Björn is talking about his health problems and how he ‘fell asleep like a clubbed seal’. it was really funny at times like when he talked about his dislikment of shaq and other nba players.He spends a lot of time congratulating himself for his willingness to discuss serious issues, but he doesn't discuss any real issues here in any real depth. As always, he’s open, unfiltered, and really smart (I don’t always agree with him, and he can be a major old-guy-ragging-on-young-guys sometimes, but he’s always smart and thoughtful). This book goes over his childhood living in a small town in Alabama to his three years at Auburn University.
