Why buy this book, “Strength in the Storm:” by Eknath Easwaran? I believe so you can live life more fully, let me tell you why.

Dear Rears,

 Why buy this book,  “Strength in the Storm:  Transform Stress, Live in Balance, and Find Peace of Mind” by Eknath Easwaran?  Give me a few minutes to tell you why.

 Have you ever wished you could have more time?  If the answer is yes, this book is for you.

 Eknath takes you on a journey of a lifetime – his.  Reading about his stories and teachings of his life, along with the incredibly insightful ideas from his wife and others that have benefitted from his books and lectures, you will learn how to harness your thoughts and become the person you were meant to be.

 How?  The key is knowing your mind and body want to work for your spirit and soul.  You aren’t your mind or your body – you are something more – a consciousness that needs to take control – ask for what it needs and wants from the mind and body.

 After you master the lessons from the many stories featured within this composition there are many more that Eknath has written right on Amazon and itunes – check out the links below. 

 If your life feels out of control or you need a new direction, “Strength in the Storm:  Transform Stress, Live in Balance, and Find Peace of Mind” is for you.  May you find the inner peace that being one with the universe may bring you if you’re open to the possibilities.

Quote

“…. All of us…

…. All of us want people to treat us with kindness and respect. We get upset when they don’t. To make ourselves unupsettable, Easwaran says, the secret is simple: treat others with the kindness and respect we want for ourselves. We can’t change them, after all. If we want less friction, our only practical choice is to make changes in ourselves.
Does that mean we can expect people to treat us with kindness when we do this? No, though I think they’re much more likely to. What Easwaran is saying is that when we speak and act with kindness, we make ourselves so secure that others’ unkindness doesn’t shake us.

I bring this quote forward because I saw a note about how do you find closure.  As I apply the many life changing ideas found in Eknath Easwaran book, Strength in the Storm:  Transform stress, live in balance and find peace of mind, I have found closure to many negative thoughts, relationships and destructive actions.  Making these changes in my own thinking has brought me peace of mind and a conclusion to all of the self-doubt I was experiencing.  I hope sharing this quote is of help to all of you weathering a storm. May you find the comfort I found from Easwaran’s wisdom and stories. Remember all we have is the moment and I’m thankful for it. 

Peace,

Melissa Blanchard.
