The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down: Guidance on the Path to Mindfulness from a Spiritual LeaderThe Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down: Guidance on the Path to Mindfulness from a Spiritual Leader by Haemin Sunim
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I like this author’s other book that I read so I tried this one as well right afterward. I’m enjoying slowing down and appreciating life more. He has many stories and how life is sweeter than when you slow down. Quotes that I loved. “ Love allows the world to stop for just a moment.” “Give the gift of your full presence.” “For enlightened person and very single day is a great day because they know that no one can take away their wisdom.”

Is it the world that’s busy, or is it my mind?

The world moves fast, but that doesn’t mean we have to. This bestselling mindfulness guide by Haemin Sunim (which means “spontaneous wisdom”), a renowned Buddhist meditation teacher born in Korea and educated in the United States, illuminates a path to inner peace and balance amid the overwhelming demands of everyday life.

By offering guideposts to well-being and happiness in eight areas—including relationships, love, and spirituality—Haemin Sunim emphasizes the importance of forging a deeper connection with others and being compassionate and forgiving toward ourselves. The more than twenty full-color illustrations that accompany his teachings serve as calming visual interludes, encouraging us to notice that when you slow down, the world slows down with you.
