    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.

    Would you listen to Emotional Chaos to Clarity again? Why?

    Yes. The author understands human emotion and how emotions affect our lives. He outlines what is happening to you when you are out of emotional balance and what you can do to regain balance. Psychology is Western society's response to overwhelming or troubling emotions but it seeks to explore root causes of the discomfort which can be a long and laborious process. Sometimes, the root cause is just unknown or finding it does little to stop the emotional chaos. Moffit's approach follows the Buddhist tradition of being present with the emotion in the moment. Rather than fear the emotion or try to chase it away, Moffitt teaches one to be aware of it and make peace with it. Once one begins to becomes aware of what they are feeling through mindfulness, they are better able to tolerate the emotions and live more skillfully. Moffit does a good job of explaining this process and also how to reduce emotional chaos by making sure your intentions and your goals are aligned.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The book would have been better if it was read by Moffit himself. The narrator has a stereotypical narrator's voice. I would have much preferred to hear Moffit himself as the messages and stories are powerful but lose something being communicated through a third party who does not necessarily understand these things himself.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Emotional Chaos to Clarity?

    Emotions are emotions, passing states of mind, but they are not you!


    Any additional comments?

    There is so much information it can be a bit hard to digest. I advise taking it slow, stopping the track frequently to think about what he is saying and how it applies to your life.
