Much of my mailbox this week were donations by my niece’s partner, for me to add to my Amazon Marketplace Shop, and were of little interest to me as browsing or reading material, as I am not a huge ‘Star Wars’ fan and he must own just about every book written in the series, or rather he did, because I now have them!!
He does have very eclectic reading tastes, on the whole though, and mid-way through the pile, there were a couple of gems that I shall browse with interest:
Synopsis is taken from the book:
“Mindfulness is considered the heart of Buddhist meditation. But it’s essence is universal and of deep practical benefit to everyone.
In ‘Mindfulness Meditation For Everyday Life’, Jon Kabat-Zinn maps out a simple path for cultivating mindfulness in your own life, and awakening you to the unique beauty and possibilities of each present moment as it unfolds. This book will be enjoyed by both those who are new to meditation as well as those who are long-time practitioners”
“Meditation is the art of paying attention, of listening to your heart. Rather than withdrawing from the world, meditation can help you enjoy it more fully, more effectively, and more peacefully” – Words by Dr. Dean Ornish.
This is not a book that I shall read from cover to cover, but will enjoy browsing and also take away any words of wisdom that may be included.
Synopsis taken from the book
“Meursault will not pretend. After the death of his mother, everyone is shocked when he shows no sadness. And when he commits a random act of violence in Algiers, society is baffled. Why would this seemingly law-abiding bachelor do such a thing…why does he show no remorse, even when it could save his life?
His refusal to satisfy the feelings of others only increases his guilt in the eyes of the law. Soon Meursault discovers that he is being tried not simply for his crime, but for his lack of emotion – a reaction that condemns him for being an outsider”
This is a book that I shall definitely read with interest, having recently browsed his work ‘The Myth Of Sisyphus’ and becoming so engrossed, that I practically read the entire piece.
