HASH(0xa6fae8ac) out of 5 stars More Fingers Pointing at the Moon... June 7 2015
By Paleomagick - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This elegant and simple book sums up who we are and how we can be happy. It is for anyone who wants a guide to authentic happiness or, like me, anyone who needs a reminder...

When I read this book I am reminded that real life and authentic happiness come from knowing that Tai Sheridan, Shunryu Suzuki, Charles Prebish, Pema Chodron, Thomas Merton, Rumi, Hafiz and Charlotte Joko Beck are part of my real family, the part that is awake and constantly celebrating our family reunion.

HASH(0xa6faeaf8) out of 5 stars Nice thoughts. Aug. 12 2013
By MightySchwa - Published on

Given that this is a short and simple primer on ways of looking at the world, looking at life, I felt it was helpful. of course, sometimes less is more -- and this book is a good example of that. Lessons which don't necessarily sink in all the way at first glance. Easy to revisit the ideas presented and reflect on the different ways in which they might apply to life over time.

HASH(0xa6faee4c) out of 5 stars Not the ultimate secret April 15 2014

These are a very interesting collection of separate thoughts in the form of short poem. There are feelings such as anger and pride, there are others such as time, change and uncertainty. They are not very coherent as if Tai just wrote whatever he happened to be thinking or wanting to write about.
While the content is inetresting, the title is a bit too big for the content. This big title should contain more sharing, more examples and more insights about why some people are happy and some are not, what creates happiness what does not, how to be happy, how to be not so happy.
