Joyously Through the Days: Living the Journey of Spiritual Practice Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Drawing inspiration from such diverse sources as Khalil Gibran, Virginia Woolf, and Frank Sinatra, as well as the Bible and the great Zen masters of old, this book offers a path to rich and lasting happiness achieved through what Huston Smith calls "goal-attaining patience." In Joyously Through the Days, Les Kaye explores life's every day complexities and instructs us in the Zen way through our human foibles. Through awareness, patience, and generosity, Kaye argues, we can respond with creative calm to the uncertain conditions of modern life.

Synopsis:

“A wise and practical book. Inspiring and pulse-quickening. Les Kaye points out skillfully many of our human foibles—so familiar that they often seem to come too close for comfort. At one point I found myself exclaiming, almost out loud, ‘How does he know me so well?” —Huston Smith

Joyously Through the Days brilliantly points to our inherent spirituality, the problems we create when we lose touch with it, and how we can regain it. Les Kaye shows us how spiritual practice enhances awareness, patience, and generosity, and enables us to respond creatively to the complexities, distractions, and uncertainties of our lives. This crisp and universal book is based on reflections of forty years experiencing and observing the relevance of Les own spiritual practice to the everyday world of family and work and all kinds of relationships, clearly showing how the spiritual and the ordinary converge continually—not merely once in a while. Drawing inspiration from sources as diverse as Saul Bellow, Herman Melville, and the great Zen teachers of old Joyously Through the Days offers a path to a rich and lasting happiness through what Huston Smith calls, “goal-attaining patience.”
