Love books! Classics and lighter fiction, mysteries (not too violent please :-). And selective non-fiction--whatever takes my fancy.

  • "Exceptionally Good Book!"

    Performance
    Story

    Phillip Moffitt is a man who wants to share his wisdom about life--and what he writes is very inspirational.

    I have read his other book, and listened to talks he has given over the years, and he has provided enormous insight into how to live one's life with an approach that dignifies all living things. His Buddhist approach clearly underscores his philosophy for living, but at times, it is also possible to feel and detect the other great influence in his life--Jungian psychology.

    This book is perhaps his best work so far. I simply do not know how to speak highly enough about it. He provides guidelines for making wise decisions in one's life that, if utilized, surely improve the quality of our lives--and our relationships with everything we encounter.

    Although Fred Stella has done an excellent job at narrating this book, I am sad that Mr. Moffitt did not read it himself, since I have listened to so many of his talks that his voice is what I expected to hear. Otherwise, I can only say, I wish I could offer this 6 stars.

    Despite our best-laid plans, life can often be difficult, disappointing, and stressful. Consequently, when things don’t go right, we are often left in a state of emotional chaos, dealing with feelings like anger, anxiety, frustration, and doubt, which can cloud our perspective and negatively affect the way we live our lives. But in this inspiring book, Phillip Moffitt shows us that we need not be at the mercy of our emotions. By cultivating a responsive mind rather than a reactive one, we can achieve a state of emotional clarity.

    Story

    Tara Brach, who has achieved notoriety for her gentle approach to living, primarily through a psychological/Buddhist approach, provides some guidelines for moving through life, using what she refers to as "R.A.I.N." By this, she shows us how to meet challenging situations.

    First Recognize the reality of what is occurring.

    Then Accept that is it what it is.

    Investigate what it means, and then the huge move that brings it all together, is:

    "rest in Natural awareness." (in other words, do not be so quick to react, but move to a state of awareness in which we have a different relationship to what is happening).

    Tara Brach also wrote "Radical Acceptance," in which she also suggests that we are so quick to run from, or distance ourselves from situations that feel unpleasant, that we may do better in the long run finding a way to move into them, with curiosity, patience and willingness to be present to what is happening.

    As happens sometimes, they have chosen someone else to read this book. Although Cassandra Campbell has done an excellent job, Tara Brach has a beautifully soft voice, and I would so have preferred hearing her narrate it herself. However, this book is certainly worth listening to.

    How do you cope when facing life-threatening illness, family conflict, faltering relationships, old trauma, obsessive thinking, overwhelming emotion, or inevitable loss? If you're like most people, chances are you react with fear and confusion, falling back on timeworn strategies: anger, self-judgment, and addictive behaviors. Though these old, conditioned attempts to control our life may offer fleeting relief, ultimately they leave us feeling isolated and mired in pain. There is another way.

  • How to See Yourself as You Really Are

    "Very thorough, but very complex"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    First off I had no problem with the narrator, he did a good job on a very complex book.

    The subject matter of this book is very complex and I would not recommend it to people who are not familier with buddhist concepts. However this book is a treasure of wisdom supported by analytical arguments which are very well structured and arranged.

    This is THE best book I have read on this subject, you also REALLY have to concentrate while listening (not a light listen) . After listening (at least twice) you will have a lot of contemplation ahead of you...

  • The Wisdom of Compassion: Stories of Remarkable Encounters and Timeless Insights

    "Interesting anecdotes about the Dalai Lama"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This book is a light hearted and candid look at His Holiness the Dalai Lama during relatively recent very high profile events (and some lower key events, though still very important & informative, if not more so).

    You can appreciate his putting into action what he says, and how he sees himself in world events. As a religious leader he attends events in which people seek his advice and the behind-the-scenes commentary in this book is very welcome to further understand some background stories at these events. Also very interesting is His Holiness' interest with western scientific methods to validate if what he says and believes holds true under scientific scrutiny by world leading scientists.

    Narration is actually very good, at first I was taken aback by the different voices the narrator used, however after the initial surprise the reading flowed very well.

    This is not really a book about in-depth Buddhist teaches and analysis, but rather a behind-the-scenes look following the Dalai Lama through some recent events.

    I liked this book.

  • The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching: Transforming Suffering into Peace, Joy, & Liberation

    "Good traditional information on Buddhism"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I found this audiobook version of this great book.

    This is a great source of information on Buddhist precepts & philosophy. It is delivered in a more traditional type language which can be a little harder to grasp and process so careful and slow listening is recommended. The narrator does a good job, though I would maybe have liked some more variation in his tone.

    I would say this is a more "advanced beginner" type book where a lot of information is well explained, in addition, now we start building upon some fundamental concepts. If this is your first experience with Buddism, take your time, do not rush listening as there is a lot here.

    Having a PDF version of some of the listings and interactions would be a great addition to this audiobook.

  • "A Buddhist view of Chronic illness"

    2 of 2 helpful votes
    What made the experience of listening to How to Be Sick the most enjoyable?

    I love the content of this book. Originally, I bought the paperback version, but I wanted to enjoy it again with less effort. With the audio version, I was able to passively enjoy this book all over again. It was a wonderful experience.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book really gave me new perspective of my illnesses and how I react to the situations that come about due to it. Instead of suffering, I have learned to find the positive through the experience.


    Any additional comments?

    It helps to have knowledge of the Buddhist Philosophy before reading this book.

Here, she unveils the mystery of an ineffable quality; a "pre-emotional" feeling that arises in us, brings us discomfort, and causes us to react by escaping the discomfort, often with harmful habits. With Getting Unstuck, she offers us a first look at "both the itch and the scratch": what Tibetan Buddhists call shenpa.

    It's one thing to hear a life-changing truth or to have a conceptual grasp on spiritual wisdom. But it’s another thing to "walk the walk" - or to put into practice the good advice we've been given. What does it mean to walk the walk in our everyday lives? According to Pema Chödrön, it means being down-to-earth, genuine, and perhaps most importantly, it means engaging in the teachings in order to actively confront anything and everything we’ve heretofore rejected in our attempts to find happiness.

Radical Acceptance offers a path to freedom, including the day-to-day practical guidance developed over Dr. Brach's 20 years of work with therapy clients and Buddhist students.

    The Tribute is translated here for the first time. Peter Haskel's introduction places Tosui in the context of the Japanese Zen of his period - a time when the identities of early modern Zen schools were still being formed and a period of spiritual crisis for many distinguished monks who believed that the authentic Zen transmission had long ceased to exist. Abiographical addendum offers a detailed overview of Tosui's life in light of surviving premodern sources.

    It's one thing to hear a life-changing truth or to have a conceptual grasp on spiritual wisdom. But it’s another thing to "walk the walk" - or to put into practice the good advice we've been given. What does it mean to walk the walk in our everyday lives? According to Pema Chödrön, it means being down-to-earth, genuine, and perhaps most importantly, it means engaging in the teachings in order to actively confront anything and everything we’ve heretofore rejected in our attempts to find happiness.

    Robert Thurman's Basic Buddhism is a collective series of five lectures he has given on Buddhism. In these lectures, Thurman patiently takes apart each jewel of Buddhism: The Buddha as the teacher of enlightenment, the Dharma as the teaching, or enlightenment itself, and the Sangha as the historical and current community of learners seeking to become Buddhas.
