Art of Power, by Thich Nhat Hanh
Together with the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh is my favorite, most beloved author. I read and cherish all his teachings. He speaks directly to my heart. No matter how bad a day I might be having, I can just read some of his words, or look at his picture on my altar, and I am immediately calm. A wonderful beautiful man.
This book was a treasure to read. As I devoured each and every page, it was if he was speaking directly to me.
"Thich Nhat Hanh illustrates how our current understanding of power leads us on a never ending search for external markers like job title or salary. This me–first approach to life may have originated in the business world, but the stress, fear and anxiety it causes are being felt by all of us everyday.
The words of this beautiful gentle Monk teaches us that true power comes from within and that what we seek we already have.
