Publisher Comments:

Presented in simple yet strikingly memorable language, the messages in Saying Yes to Life (Even the Hard Parts) provide inspiration for each day, and invitations to go more deeply into the spiritual life. These gems of wisdom range from page-long reflections to simple aphorisms. The themes presented emphasize the importance of making peace with life's paradoxes, opening to the unwanted, finding the happiness in difficulty, and living always with what's here. Page after page reveals truths that can be put into action in the moment, yet also unfold ever more deeply with thorough examination. Insightful and never convoluted, Saying Yes to Life (Even the Hard Parts) is a great companion for life's long journey.

Synopsis:

Told in blissfully simple language, the thoughts and messages in Saying Yes to Life (Even the Hard Parts) provide inspiration for each day. These nuggets of wisdom range from a page-long reflection to a simple aphorism and stress the importance of drawing meaning from life's paradoxes — opening to the unwanted, recognizing the happiness in difficulty, and living for now rather than later. Page after page reveals truths that can be put into action in the moment, yet also stand up to multiple interpretations and thorough examination. Insightful and never convoluted, Saying Yes to Life (Even the Hard Parts) is a great companion for life's long journey.

The words on the pages of this wee book gently help us see that life's meaning is our choice. Quoting the words of our elders, mainly the ancient ones (time-tested!), the author has created a worthwhile collection of inspiring and motivating aphorisms that remind/inform us that learning, understanding and being open can liberate us from negativity and suffering.
