Be­yond mind­ful­ness – find­ing your real life

New Zealand Fitness - - BOOK REVIEWS -

By Dr Stephen McKen­zie Ex­isle Pub­lish­ing Aus­tralia 2016

When we open our hearts and our minds and our lives to our nat­u­ral good hu­mour, we can see that noth­ing is so deadly or so se­ri­ous that it can’t make us smile or even laugh, even if it is at our­selves. The au­thor pushes through the bound­aries so of­ten im­posed by a mis­in­ter­preted idea of mind­ful­ness and dives into the vast, deep wa­ters of heart­ful­ness to help you live a fuller, more re­ward­ing life. With warmth and com­pas­sion, this in­sight­ful book ex­plores the nine paths of: kind­ness, ad­ver­sity, hu­mour, con­tent­ment, love, courage, knowl­edge, hope and cre­ativ­ity. Wouldn’t the world be a bet­ter place if ev­ery­one un­der­stood all of this? The quotes, alone, are worth dwelling on, such as: Suc­cess is not fi­nal; fail­ure is not fa­tal – it is the courage to con­tinue that counts. And: Be kind when­ever pos­si­ble. It is al­ways pos­si­ble.
