內容簡介

韓國心靈導師慧敏,跨越信仰的溫柔處世智慧 X 紐約知名插畫家Lisk Feng暖心全彩插圖

  許多人透過忽視問題與深藏內心來轉化生活壓力,往往導致情緒出現焦慮或抑鬱的症狀。更有甚者埋首努力在工作、學校或家庭保持良好表現,並希望通過這些努力使自己和我們所愛的人更快樂。我們活在一個被「完美」綁架的世界裡,彷彿永遠有更多、更好、更傑出的目標與自我必須實現。

  但如果做自己就已經足夠了呢?正如同搭乘飛機時遇到氧氣不足,我們被要求在幫助他人前需先戴上自己的氧氣面罩一樣,我們必須先與自己和平共處,才能有和平的心態與自身周遭的世界相處。

  此書是作者慧敏師父百萬暢銷著作「The Thing You Can See Only When You Slow Down」的美妙續篇,跨越宗教信仰的藩籬,更多的是所有人都受用的生活溫柔提點。結合自身的經歷,他將其標誌性的智慧與和善轉化為自我照顧,只有接受自己以及接受那些成就現在自我的那些瑕疵,才能與你的伴侶、家人和朋友建立起富有同理心且充實的關係。(文/博客來編譯)

  Susan Cain, New York Times bestselling author of Quiet: "The world could surely use a little more love, a little more compassion, and a little more wisdom. In Love for Imperfect Things, Haemin Sunim shows us how to cultivate all three, and to find beauty in the most imperfect of things--including your very own self."

  A #1 internationally bestselling book of spiritual wisdom about learning to love ourselves, with all our imperfections, by the Buddhist author of The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down

  Hearing the words "be good to yourself first, then to others" was like being struck by lightning.

  Many of us respond to the pressures of life by turning inward and ignoring problems, sometimes resulting in anxiety or depression. Others react by working harder at the office, at school, or at home, hoping that this will make ourselves and the people we love happier. But what if being yourself is enough? Just as we are advised on airplanes to take our own oxygen first before helping others, we must first be at peace with ourselves before we can be at peace with the world around us.

  In this beautiful follow-up to his international bestseller The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down, Zen Buddhist monk Haemin Sunim turns his trademark wisdom to the art of self-care, arguing that only by accepting yourself--and the flaws that make you who you are--can you have compassionate and fulfilling relationships with your partner, your family, and your friends. With more than thirty-five full-color illustrations, Love for Imperfect Things will appeal to both your eyes and your heart, and help you learn to love yourself, your life, and everyone in it.

  When you care for yourself first, the world begins to find you worthy of care.

  Review

  “A real treasure. It teaches us that compassion is at the heart of healing . . . starting with ourselves. I highly recommend this book.” —Christiane Northrup, MD, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

  “A treasure! I don’t have to be perfect? What incredible news. This book hit me like a ton of bricks and made many anxieties melt away.” —Neil Pasricha, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Awesome and The Happiness Equation

  “You can be the most amazing human being in the world and everyone sees rays of light, love, and genius when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that external admiration doesn’t matter one bit. Haemin Sunim teaches you ways to love yourself first, instead of loving the idea of other people loving you. It makes a world of difference.” —Marc and Angel Chernoff, New York Times bestselling authors of Getting Back to Happy

  “Haemin Sunim is the real deal. The simplicity and beauty of his teachings go straight to the heart. Keep this book close by—it will awaken wisdom and deepen your love of life.” —Tara Brach, bestselling author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge

  “A wonderful book to accompany The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down. Zen teacher Haemin Sunim describes with great clarity the suffocating effect of perfectionism—how damaging it is to think your worth as a person is solely dependent on how you perform. Then, page by page, he shows you how to reclaim your freedom and your life.” —Mark Williams, co-author of Mindfulness: An Eight-Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World

  “Beyond all barriers of culture and religions, Love for Imperfect Things speaks to every human heart, because Haemin Sunim speaks from the innermost heart—the heart of compassion.” —Brother David Steindl-Rast, OSB, author of Gratefulness, the Heart of Prayer

  “With his warmth, intellect, and compassionate wisdom, Haemin Sunim awakens and enhances one’s love for self—an invaluable gift for all of us.” —Allan Lokos, founder and guiding teacher, Community Meditation Center, NYC; author of Through the Flames, Patience, and Pocket Peace

  “Relatable and valuable . . . Zen Buddhist teacher Sunim looks tantalizingly at essential yet everyday aspects of the human experience in this lively book of reflections. . . . In addition to stories from Sunim’s own life, the book contains thought-provoking aphorisms. . . . A breezy book with generally helpful reminders, wise advice, and pithy sayings to soothe the challenges of hectic life.” —Publishers Weekly

  “Wisdom to apply to everyday life . . . Quick, easy lessons for developing and increasing our practice of empathy toward ourselves and others.” —Library Journal

  “Sunim . . . writes with an inviting and gentle voice that is akin to a warm embrace. . . . Although many self-help books preach triumphal purpose-seeking, Sunim astonishes by saying, ‘I don’t think life has something grand in store for me.’ . . .  The book is worth repeated readings on a commuter train, at bedtime, or as part of a morning routine.” —Booklist
