Present moment awareness is an essential ingredient in life if one expects to experience any degree of authentic peace and contentment. It has been acknowledged for centuries as the cornerstone of spiritual awakening in all traditions of Eastern thought. In the West, however, it is still a relatively unrecognized concept for living. The Western mind is always restless, never content with the moment.

Short answer - yes.

Long answer - whenever I read reviews on self help books my overriding question is always " did it actually change your life in some significant way?"
I listened to this book to and from work for several weeks so that I could absorb the messages contained within each chapter and I have to confess there has been a fundamental shift in my outlook on life.
I am a chronic perfectionist and this book has enabled me to stop obsessing about the goal to enjoying the process in aiming for the goal and detaching from the outcome. Not easy to begin with but life is so much more enjoyable now.
I have applied the principals contained within the book to my yoga lessons, to starting my own business and to refurbishing my home.
There is an age-old profound message within the pages of this book and if you are ready to receive the message it could change your life for the better.
