Summary

This book offers a comprehensive look at the Japanese world view known as "Wabi-Sabi" and how it can be used to change one's perception of life and find happiness in an imperfect life. 

There's no denying that modern living has afforded us lots of good things with all manner of convenience. Today, we can stay cool no matter how hot it gets outside, thanks to our air-conditioned rooms. In seconds, we can talk face-to-face with someone halfway across the world, thanks to the Internet. So why are there so many of us who feel disconnected and unhappy? 

If you've grown tired of keeping up with the mental and emotional demands of modern living, then perhaps it's time to turn to age-old pearls of wisdom for advice and gain a new perspective about life. This book is your portal to one such wisdom as the author invites you to look beyond the cultural tradition and Japanese aesthetics of Wabi-Sabi and unlock a new dimension for perceiving the world and seeking one's place in it. 

Travel back in time and explore the Zen roots of Wabi-Sabi and how it has taught generations of people to find beauty amidst the many imperfections of life. You will learn that Wabi-Sabi isn't so much about Japanese culture, but life in general. It teaches people to simplify things and recognize what is truly important to them. 

This book gives you just what you need to live a fruitful life. On a silver platter, you are presented with simple and effective methods of living a fruitful life by using the theories and principles of Wabi-Sabi. Through approaches from Wabi-Sabi, you will gain the wisdom of living in natural simplicity. 

The book does not aim to change your imperfections. Instead, it does even better by showing you how to see the beauty in your imperfections. Through your journey in this book, you will discover that your unique flaws can lead you to your greatest treasures and strengths. You will learn how to see the true beauty of your life. 

The book will take you through seven pillars of Wabi-Sabi that will mark the beginning of a truly fruitful life. It teaches practical lessons ideal for anyone who wants to live a satisfactory and wholesome lifestyle. If you’re tired of the anxiety, depression, self-loathing, and overwhelming feelings that haunt you, download this book today. You won’t regret it!

amazing

The author recognizes that true Wabi-Sabi is indefinable and that writing about it is not keeping true to that idea.

delightful

However, his descriptions of meanings and how this concept seems to have developed are delightful and honor the spirit of Wabi-Sabi.
