4.0 out of 5 stars Short but good Jan. 27 2013
By Quill
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stop overthinking things Feb. 11 2012
By Tom Flanders - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love this book. I don't know if it will really help me to make meditation part of my life, but I feel like it will. It is short. It is simple. Both of the those can be both good and bad. I tend to be a bulk snob when it comes to information. The more information, and the more complex that information is, the more likely I am to trust in that information as truthful and useful. I have to throw those out for Buddha in Blue Jeans. My first reaction that it couldn't be this simple has been dissuaded by some rather successful meditation sessions. Of course I've had many more attempts than successes. I'm so used to trying to analyze and understand every thought that it's hard to trust and let go. But I'm trying, and every time I reread the book I get some new insight or trick to try.

Having said all that, I should state that if you are looking for a self-help book with lots of helpful hints and guidance, you may be disappointed. It leaves a lot up to the reader, which is the point, but still, some of us like being led by the leash into new experiences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and Elegant Dec 29 2011
By Bonez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book, at it's face value, might not seem like much. It's a very short book (as it states in the title) but for the most part it's exactly what you need to set yourself right. There are alot of people that stress the details, that need ceremony and great struggles for something to have meaning and feel like they are getting benefit. Most of what we need is for someone to say "Hey! Just be present here, now." That's a majority of our problem, if we were to sit and calm ourselves, pay attention and just be present for a while, you'd be amazed at the results. This book outlines it beautifully and is a good companion to have so that you can go back to it again and again and remember what is important, just to sit quietly, and learn what you need....by sitting quietly.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Gentle Read Jan. 4 2012
By Thing - Published on Amazon.com

This was a short but beautiful read. It is a reminder to us all that we should practice mindfulness often! It left me feeling pleasantly calm with the sense that I'd just been pulled, ever so gently, back into line.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book could've saved me alot of trouble Aug. 17 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book could've saved me alot of trouble keeping track of all the things I was/wasn't supposed to be doing during meditation. Best of all, I realized that I was taking the practice to seriously rather than just sitting still & observing myself quietly without judgement. I feel as if everything I need for my practice is in this short consise book that I literally carry with me everywhere I go, on my phone. & to think that I only downloaded it because it was free & didnt bother to look at it for several weeks.
