Description

As this novel was penned by a successful corporate executive who had been dissatisfied with his professional life for a while, it will appeal to those questioning why their career is not enough. We like to think we understand what’s happening around us; that we can determine the path our life takes. It's not only just laced with the most incredible wisdom, but it's also gentle and beautiful and eloquent.

After working as an economist, he gives up his promising career to spend 17 years as a forest monk in Thailand and in this book shares what he has learnt in that time. Infusing the everyday with heart and grace, I May Be Wrong is an audiobook to help us all navigate the realities of modern life. How magnificently disconcerting of this Swedish former forest monk to admit to doubts, even profound ones.He loves his home state but I think this would have been hilarious because although he can be a serious guy, but I have seen many interviews where he seems to be quite a jokester. Summary: A manual for living with uncertainty – told in simple everyday language through the perspective of a man who chose to live an extraordinary life, but recognises that most of us will stay closer to home and can nevertheless benefit massively from what he learned along the way.

We’re living in a world where everybody wants to be right, and it has led to divisive conflicts that has detrimentally impacted life for many people. Interspersed with his descriptions of his life as a monk, Björn shares the wisdoms that he has learned. There are some passages which are a bit clunky but on the whole it is written in a style that seems true to Barkley's vernacular. It's also a very personal story that is at times, if not quite laugh-out-loud-funny, definitely chuckle-making and self-recognition-smile inducing. Here I am, regularly feeling sorry for myself (again) when I intermittently fast and eat a “strict” diet.The term applies though because, as I understand it (and I may be wrong) the term forest monastery refers to a concept / ideology / tradition / denomination / family as much as it does to the location of the building. This is a book I’ll be recommending to everyone as it’s been such an outstanding, inspiring read for me.

Heart to Heart: A new guide on compassion, climate change, and living a meaningful life from His Holiness The Dalai Lama RM94. What he did was go on tour and talk, without notes, about his life and his beliefs and his practice. Maybe I just read this book at a low moment when I needed it but I often felt that the book was talking directly at me, helping me with areas that I was struggling with. We have no control over what pops into our minds, but we can control whether we believe them or not. The word “responsibility” just sounds like something we must do or carry no matter what, regardless of who we are, how we feel or think.Finally, you have to be aware that the book was written in 2003, a couple of years after his retirement, and in the early 2000s, just before Lebron was picked in the NBA draft. The book is full of wisdom and wonderful stories, many of which I had heard but I still enjoyed listening to again and pondering on their messages. In his mid-twenties Björn swapped his career as a business executive for life as a forest monk in the jungles of Thailand.
