Publisher's Summary

The word "Zen" is one of the most popular words used to refer to a state of being at peace or being chill in the midst of many things that are going on in life. It's also one of the most misunderstood ones. Zen may be formally defined a type school or branch of Japanese meditation called Mahayana Buddhism, which highlights the importance of intuition and meditation.

This book is about renewing your mind on a daily basis simply by meditating on one quote a day for the next 365 days - or one whole year. By meditating upon these quotes every day, you can gradually change the way you think about life in general and about certain important things in particular. And when you change the way you think about life, you change the way you feel about it. Only then can inner peace and happiness come to you.

I have presented these quotes to you in four different stages, which I believe is important for helping you experience deep and lasting inner peace and happiness. These stages are mindfulness, acceptance, peace of mind, and happiness. Each stage has enough daily quotes to meditate and reflect on for one quarter or three months.

The very first step towards changing your mind is to first be mindful of yourself and the world around you. Then you'll be able to start accepting life for what it is, which is key towards achieving the last two stages: inner peace and happiness. Your ability to experience inner peace is dependent on how much you're able to accept yourself and the things around you, and the ability to be truly happy is dependent on how at peace you are.

Unlistenable narration, have to return to Audible!!!

It’s good content (not original but a collection of quotes), however the poor production and the fast pace of the narration makes it unlistenable. It’s like the narrator is trying to get through it as quickly as possible and does not pause between quotes. The irony is that’s it’s about zen and mindfulness. I even slowed the playback to .75 and it’s still unlistenable. I’ve never returned a book to Audible, but this one will be returned.
