Re: [jeanne53] A counterintuitive approach to living a good life...
jeanne53: Hi

Christine and I have both enjoyed reading the book. She found the language distracting but appreciated its reason for being there. Both of us were impressed with the author's directness and apparent ability to get a fairly profound concept across with few words and some unusual analogies. Particularly we like his take on Romeo and Juliet. Enjoy when you get there.

"The desire for more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, paradoxically, the acceptance of one's negative experience is itself a positive experience."

Or put another way:

"Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it." Luke 17:33.

The more we strive for happiness, the further it will go from our grasp, the less we grasp at happiness the more we can savor and enjoy the moment.

Regards Chris.
Love covers a multitude of sins. 1 Pet.4:8b.
