For cultivating inner peace, this is a good practical guide. I have read and enjoyed it personally, as well as sharing it with some students who have serious behavior issues. It's simple, light, direct and a breath of fresh air.

Our smile will bring happiness to us and to those around us. Even if we spend a lot of money on gifts for everyone in our family, nothing we buy could give them as much happiness as the gift of our awarenss, our smile. And this precious gift costs us nothing. 7

I know this is a wonderful moment. It is a joy to sit, stable and at ease, and return to our breathing, our smiling, our true nature. Our appointment with life is in the present moment. 10

Each though, each action in the sunlight of awareness becomes sacred. In this light, no boundary exists between the sacred and the profane. 27
