I recently read how not to be afraid of your own life by Susan Piver. As the title suggests, the book is about overcoming fear in order to live a full and enriched life. Among other things, it examines what causes fear, what dissolves fear and outlines a seven day a healing program.
Piver, a practicing Buddhist, introduces many Buddhist principles and practical tips and techniques on how to overcome fear and bring your mind into the present moment. Her outlook is similar to mine on three important issues:
- The importance of calming the mind in restoring health
- Meditation as an excellent way to calm the mind, and
- The importance of getting away from the world [take a retreat] in order to expedite the healing process
It’s well worth the read particularly if you can find it at the library, like I did.
Have an awesomely fearless day!
