I love that this book takes about as long to read as it does to meditate. I feel like the author did that on purpose.
It is so deceivingly simple like meditation it self. We like to make things complicated so that we get satisfaction that we did it. But in the process we make our life complicated. His use of of clouds as an analogy for thoughts is quite simply perfect. Like clouds they come and go and you know they are temporary so you never invest your self to them, you just enjoy them as they go by. Reduce multitasking in your life. Multitasking means you are not truly present in what you are doing. When you eat just eat, turn the tv off. Reduce the amount of information you take in at one time. How often do you find your self eating dinner with the tv on and checking your phone for emails? Read this book and start to simplify your life. Then watch the joy that starts to come from the simplest things. Like cloud watching.

This is extremely short so keep this on mind, you will finish reading it in less than 7 minutes, but you will reread it multiple times to remind yourself of the truth. It's just a collection of lessons to repeat when you are idle.

I love this little book. Beautifully written, a quick read , and great accompaniment to sitting meditation. The verses gently remind one to stay present and mindful.

The thoughts in this book are good but this doesn't really classify as a book being as short as it is. Worth the quick read to reflect though
