Great insights that can help relieve the stress of modern life

The author is a renowned practitioner of Zen Buddhism. According him, the only life we ever have is right now, our existence in the present moment. The past is gone forever; we can’t go back and change it. And it is a waste of time to fret about the future. Yet in our hectic modern world, most of us spent many of our waking hours either ruminating over past regrets or worrying about the future.

In Peace is Every Breath, readers are presented with fairly easy methods to achieve a state of mindfulness, which is the ability to remain aware of the present moment at any given time. Achieving mindfulness is an essential aspect of Buddhist meditation.

This book is very insightful and may aid those who feel that they’re too busy to meditate. I also think it may be a helpful tool for anyone who wishes to reduce stress and worry as well as improve the quality of their life.
