Good Read – “Zen and the Art of Happiness,” by Chris Prentiss
Good Read — My good friend, Angie, highly recommended this book that she had read over the summer entitled, Zen and the Art of Happiness by Chris Prentiss. I recently finished reading this book and it is a very good read and contains insightful nuggets of advice along with practical, spiritual, and applicable wisdom from the Eastern philosophy of Zen Buddhism. This book also provides you with a positive, uplifting message that can impact and influence the very makeup of your body at a cellular level through what you believe, think, and feel. Prentiss uses plain words and simple, easy to grasp, life examples.
The idea of this book, at its core, is that to be happy you must realize that the Universe is looking out for you and regardless of what happens, it is the best possible thing that can happen to you.
What I love best about this book is that it gives you the means to rise above whatever happens. This book will help you find a dramatic change in your life. Pick up a copy, have an open mind, and get into a different type of world that you may have never known.
Two of my favorite quotes contained in this book,
“Everything comes at the appointed time.”
“The Universe doesn’t make mistakes.”
