We all want to be fearless, joyful, and live our lives to the fullest.And we are all aware that this is not a simple task. Every day, we are inundated with misleading claims that there are methods to improve our lives, such as “purchase this, go here, eat this, don’t do that,” and the like. The list goes on and on. Pema Chodron, on the other hand, demonstrates that until we get to the essence of who we are and truly become friends with ourselves, everything we do will always be on the surface.Pema offers down-to-earth guidance on how we can move beyond the fleeting attempts to “fix” our pain and, instead, to take our lives as they are as the only path to achieve what we all yearn for most deeply—tto embrace rather than deny the difficulties of our lives—iin this perennially best-selling book on self-help. The author is a Tibetan Buddhist monk and author who specializes in the field of self-help. These teachings, which are structured around fifty-nine traditional Buddhist maxims from Tibet, direct our attention directly inward, to our own hearts and minds. Some examples of these maxims include “Always meditate on whatever provokes resentment,” “Be grateful to everyone,” and “Don’t expect applause.” Start Where You Are demonstrates how each of us may cultivate the courage to work with our own inner anguish in order to find authentic joy, holistic well-being, and unshakeable confidence by guiding us through daily meditations that use these mantras as prompts.
