ZEN AND THE ART OF HAPPINESS BY CHRIS PRENTISS. This book abstract is intended to provide just a glimpse of this wonderful book with the hope that you.
Sadly, though, I am unable to believe that. And it seems to me that the universe has provided countless examples of its lack of concern for human life. It may never do anything that hurts the universe.
But it can be quite unkind to victims of floods, famine and violence. I think this philosophy is easier to believe if you live in a very rich country like the USA, you have your basic needs met, and you just feel slightly unfilled about not having achieved everything you quite desired in your life.
But, I'm not sure this book would be very helpful to a victim of a hideous crime, a terrible accident, or ongoing poverty. Are these folks all pessimists and am I? He talks about the connection between stress and physical health, and made some excellent points there. And he told a great story about having his brand new car dented, and not becoming upset with the other driver.
And I thought that was a great approach to handling the situation.
A dent really can't cause you sadness, if you think about it the right way. But, he also insists that while on the ground follow a very dramatic head injury with a massive rock, his very first thought while unable to breath or move was that it was the best possible thing that could have happened to him. Does anybody think that is even possible, given the human impulse to fight for life, which even suicidal people have when helpless?
He goes on to say that without that attitude, his recovery would not have been as swift and other issues may have resulted. But, I ask..
In fact, why behave in any way whatsoever that might be an attempted to improve your future? If everything that happens is always for you benefit, I see no reason to do much of anything to try to make life better. Please Note: Deliveries of items with this status cannot be tracked.
