really liked it
Read in August, 2009

Book club selection....

A very interesting read...and I came away with some good lessons from the book.. ones I'd like to incorporate into my own life:

".. I can own my power and stop thinking about the past by consciously re-aligning myself with the present".

"our desire for peace must be stronger than our attachment to our misery".

"..regardless of the garden I have inherited - once I consciously take over.... to tending my mind - I can choose to nurture those circuits I wish to grow and consciously prune those circuits I prefer to love without".

"the feeling of peace is something that happens in the present moment".

I did skip a majority of the scientific part - just not my thing...
