The Art of Living
  • Author : Thich Nhat Hanh
  • Publisher : HarperCollins
  • Release : 2017-06-06
  • ISBN : 0062434721
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

In troubled times, there is an urgency to understand ourselves and our world. We have so many questions, and they tug at us night and day, consciously and unconsciously. In this important volume Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh——one of the most revered spiritual leaders in the world today——reveals an art of living in mindfulness that helps us answer life’s deepest questions and experience the happiness and freedom we desire. Thich Nhat Hanh presents, for the first time, seven transformative meditations that open up new perspectives on our lives, our relationships and our interconnectedness with the world around us. Based on the last full talks before his sudden hospitalization, and drawing on intimate examples from his own life, Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how these seven meditations can free us to live a happy, peaceful and active life, and face ageing and dying with curiosity and joy and without fear. Containing the essence of the Buddha’s teachings and Thich Nhat Hanh’s poignant, timeless, and clarifying prose, The Art of Living provides a spiritual dimension to our lives. This is not an effort to escape life or to dwell in a place of bliss outside of this world. Instead, this path will allow us to discover where we come from and where we are going. And most of all, it will generate happiness, understanding, and love, so we can live deeply in each moment of our life, right where we are.

Time and the Art of Living

Time and the Art of Living
  • Author : Robert Grudin
  • Publisher : Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
  • Release : 1997-09
  • ISBN : 9780395898314
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

This is a book about time--about one's own journey through it and, more important, about enlarging the pleasure one takes in that journey. It's about memory of the past, hope and fear for the future, and how they color, for better and for worse, one's experience of the present. Ultimately, it's a book about freedom--freedom from despair of the clock, of the aging body, of the seeming waste of one's daily routine, the freedom that comes with acceptance and appreciation of the human dimensions of time and of the place of each passing moment on life's bounteous continuum. For Robert Grudin, living is an art, and cultivating a creative partnership with time is one of the keys to mastering it. In a series of wise, witty, and playful meditations, he suggests that happiness lies not in the effort to conquer time but rather in learning "to bend to its curve," in hearing its music and learning to dance to it. Grudin offers practical advice and mental exercises designed to help the reader use time more effectively, but this is no ordinary self-help book. It is instead a kind of wisdom literature, a guide to life, a feast for the mind and for the spirit.

  • Publisher : Springer
  • Release : 2016-09-29
  • ISBN : 3319453246
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

This volume examines the questions of what constitutes a good life and how one can achieve happiness and well-being, and analyses different ways in which people can strive for a good life. First, it presents an overview on important concepts in psychology that are related to living a good life. Then, a new approach is introduced: the concept of art-of-living as a holistic way to reach happiness. Empirical studies are reported involving a questionnaire for measuring art-of-living, and the validity of the questionnaire is demonstrated with respect to a wide range of concepts. In addition, the volume provides results from empirical studies, showing that, and how, art-of-living and happiness can be enhanced. Several intervention studies are described in detail, which have been performed with different groups of subjects, including pupils, university students and employees. Also, results of interviews are summarized, which were held with people who had been nominated as exemplary artists-of-living. The volume concludes with a description of art-of-living in autobiographies, and presents suggestions for further research with respect to art-of-living.

  • Author : Edward SRI

  • Release : 2015-10-15
  • ISBN : 9780553418491
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

In our secular, relativistic, "anything goes" world that trains people to do whatever they feel like doing, we have lost the tradition of virtues. As Pope Benedict XVI said, we have lost "the art of living." Indeed, in an age of moral confusion, when the heritage of the virtues and formation in character have not been passed on, many of us no longer know how to live life well. In his follow up to Walking with Mary, popular author and speaker Edward Sri explores how small daily changes in our thinking and lifestyle can help us begin to recover these positive habits. This book takes us into the drama of our relationships and explores the virtues we need to live those relationships well. Over and over again, we see that to be a good friend, spouse, parent, and child of God, we need a lot more than feelings, enthusiasm, and good intentions. We need virtue.
