stiller's perfect voice for this timeless thurber story, perfectly delivered. pure entertainment. thanks, audible.
his voice and his sense of humor
words communicate and help us ... until they don't. in the practice of mindfulness, stillness matters far more than words. i found the forty minute bell track to be exceptionally helpful. the timing of the rings (and the beautiful sound itself) were a way for me to concentrate my breath and reach a deep level of relaxation. amazingly deep. this audio may not be for beginners since that first forty minute track is "only" a well-timed bell sound, but even if a beginner started with that track and confidently stayed with it for a week, i would bet that beginner would soon find him/herself to be an intermediate in mindfulness practice. and of course the final three tracks with sister jina van hengel's soothing voice and guiding words add greatly to the value of this audio. mindfulness is all about practice through attention and stillness. this audio is a definite aid in the practice of mindfulness. but in full disclosure, i must add that i am already a big fan of TNH. his teachings are simple but not simple-minded. for example, try living for a full ten minutes his statement "if you are at peace, at least there is peace somewhere" especially if there is any turmoil near at hand. see for yourself how paradoxical and difficult "simple" can be. but of course with practice, a peaceful state can be reached. this forty minute bell sound meditation, sans words, is a big help along the way. go for it.
worth my time since the reader gave a context with which to place this classic work.
of course. philosophy starts with plato and it's smart to know foundational material.
deep, clear, and well-paced.
i have only just purchased this audiobook and am looking forward to listening to it. remarkable women are always worth hearing about. thanks to audible dot com for getting this book to us.
