Book Review: Take Your Time by Eknath Easwaran

Take Your Time

    "I'm from India.  Take your time."  the author says to a harried teller in America.  She takes his advice and stops making errors, smiles, and begins to function more efficiently.  Easwaran shares his experiences of coming to America where everyone seems to be in such a hurry.  He made a resolution to help Americans get out of the rat race and refused to adjust to the frantic, rushed pace of living in the U. S.  This book is a result of that resolve.  "Just one person slowing down helps everyone around to relax, too."  His suggestions and ideas come from a relaxed, compassionate heart.  Offering wisdom and quotes from the Buddha, to an eight point program that includes meditation, putting others first, spiritual community, and one-pointed attention, Easwaren delivers a gem in Take Your Time. This book utilizes blue ink with the black to create a very soothing rhythm as the chapters unfold.  This gentle, wise book is like carrying your own personal guru with you throughout your day.  don't be without it.

Take Your Time is available now at Stepping Stones Books and Gifts.
