Summary
As human beings, we strive to make life go smoothly for ourselves and others, but that is expecting from the world something it cannot give. Ajahn Brahm, the bestselling author of Who Ordered This Truckload of Dung? and Mindfulness, Bliss, and Beyond, presents in this new work wisdom for learning to abandon the headwind of false expectations and follow instead the path of understanding in order to find true joy within. By releasing our attachment to past and future, hope and fear, we can settle into the stillness underlying all our thoughts and discover the bliss of the present moment
