Helps me keep my sanity in this circus.

I am completely amazed by this book. To wrap up, the book is an invitation to know and listen to ourselves in order to find equilibrium in life in general. The more I read, the more I realized how socially constructed our lives are. We do things without thinking if they really fit us, sometimes the society requires them to be done in a certain way... I totally recommend it..
I have been using this book for a year now and it challenges the conditioned mind afresh each day. Recommended. If you want it free on- line (which I do anyway) get it in a daily email form from JKOnline RSS

A couple of pages a day, enrich your life and enlighten your life journey.
To be read and to be re-savored.
For an intermediate stage (at least) in the spriritual quest.
It's not easy to understand him, for he is from another world.
But to digest and to live up what he said is tremendous bless, if we could only listen.
He is a great and true observer, with wonderful sensitivity and intelligence. I am grateful to him.

A great daily reading book if you don't mind having to go back and re-read phrases, sentences, and paragraphs to be sure that you understand what the author is saying. One of my friends called him 'inscrutable," and I think this is an apt description. I'm pretty sure that I understood at least 80% of what he had to say in this compilation of quotes. Most of the other 20% are likely ideas that can't penetrate my current world-view shell.

This is one of the few daily reading books that I will likel
kata temen saya, penulis kaya gini mah udah kaya dewa, apapun yang diomongin dan ditulis emang bagus karena hidupnya sudah banyak makan garam, tapi kita sebagai orang awam, ya ngerti apa maksudnya tapi gak bisa lantas sok melakukan apa yang disebutnya. Seperti kalo kata orangtua kita menasehati, "jangan malam-malam ya pulangnya nanti sakit", kita anak muda gak langsung gak pulang malam, kudu maen dulu sampe kerasa badan udah gak enak karena sakit, barulah kita mengerti apa maksud orangtua kita i ...more

“You only learn when you give your whole being to something. When you give your whole being to mathematics,you learn; but when you are in a state of contradiction, when you do not want to learn but are forced to learn, then it becomes merely a process of accumulation. To learn is like reading a novel with innumerable characters; it requires your full attention, not contradictory attention.” 27 likes
“The world is not something separate from you and me; the world, society, is the relationship that we establish or seek to establish between each other. So you and I are the problem, and not the world, because the world is the projection of ourselves, and to understand the world we must understand ourselves. That world is not separate from us; we are the world, and our problems are the world's problems.” 24 likes
