The power of quiet in a world full of noise.
I came across this book at a point in time when I really wanted some peace and quiet. And this book brought so much comfort to me.
If you, like me, tend to sometimes walk around with truckloads of thoughts that you need to disconnect from, this book could help.
The following paragraph from the book is my favourite.
“These are the two dimensions of solitude, and they are both important. The first is to be alone physically. The second is to be able to be yourself and stay centered even in the midst of a group. It is because you are comfortable in solitude that you can be in communion with the world. I feel connected to you because I am fully myself. It’s simple: to really relate to the world, you have to first go back and relate to yourself.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
