Thich Nhat Hanh
ISBN#: 1-57322-937-7

This book is healing, life changing and will assist you to alter the way you treat people.

For myself personally - Thay (as he is known to his students) gave me a choice. To sit on the shore of anger and suffering or to move myself across the lake onto the shore of non-anger, peace and liberation. This one concept was so healing for me. I realized I have a choice. If I'm angry, I can choose not to be. I can choose. No one is making me angry, I am choosing anger. Wow, what a huge revelation that is when you truly embrace it within your soul!

He teaches about how to love while you are in a place of anger with another. If you are so angry with another, Buddha teaches us to give them a gift to make them happy. Transform your anger into compassion by understanding the other person. Be careful of venting your anger and how you do it. Are you merely feeding your anger or are you finding the root of your anger and healing it?

We all have anger in our lives. We all feel angry at one time or another, with those we love and those we have no relationship with whatsoever. Thay assists us, through Buddha's teachings, to find a way to live our life without fanning the flames of anger.

Please order a copy of this book for yourself. Read it, incorporate what resonates within you. Sit with it. Then pick up this book and read it again. Normally I read a book once a review. This issue has two books being reviewed that I've read more than once. I started reading this book in September 2007 and I am still reading it. I find every time I pick it up, I am more centred, more calm and the shores of anger are seeing less of me.
