Read in January, 2000

having read this book before having my first child, i needed a bit of advice and piece of mind. i was teaching first grade and feeling like i could not be with myself. ever. i was spent in so many ways. a wife, a home owner, a pregnant person, a teacher, a daughter, a sister,....i was all discombobled.

when i read this book, i was able to take two steps back...breathe...ask myself where i was...and then tell myself to slow down. and to think, that was ok. it worked for me in terms of active meditative practice. i was too high strung. this works for those who need to come down several notches.

repeating the mantra of: wherever you go, there you are...helped me.
