Beyond mindfulness – finding your real life
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.
