    The essays in this book are deceptively simple They are not earth shattering revelations, but instead are quiet, peaceful reflections on life and how best to live it, starting by accepting the most meaningful of imperfect things, ourselves The short, poetic pearls of wisdom that follow each essay can be taken in all at once as quick reinforcing readings about the chapter, or each one might be considered on its own as a daily meditation Either way, none are the koans and conundrums found in The essays in this book are deceptively simple They are not earth shattering revelations, but instead are quiet, peaceful reflections on life and how best to live it, starting by accepting the most meaningful of imperfect things, ourselves The short, poetic pearls of wisdom that follow each essay can be taken in all at once as quick reinforcing readings about the chapter, or each one might be considered on its own as a daily meditation Either way, none are the koans and conundrums found in many books on Buddhist teachings, but I did find some to be oddly disturbing, which probably means they hit a nerve

    Another masterpiece by Haemin Sunim I read the first book three years ago at a difficult time of my life, and that book helped me in so many levels The same can be said for this one I started this few months ago while dealing with some personal difficulties In the beginning, I was finding this book to be just okay, loved his peaceful way of writing nevertheless But as the book progressed, the magic built on At times, I felt like the words I read were the exact same words I needed to hear a Another masterpiece by Haemin Sunim I read the first book three years ago at a difficult time of my life, and that book helped me in so many levels The same can be said for this one I started this few months ago while dealing with some personal difficulties In the beginning, I was finding this book to be just okay, loved his peaceful way of writing nevertheless But as the book progressed, the magic built on At times, I felt like the words I read were the exact same words I needed to hear at that moment Simple yet very powerful words This is a book I will read multiple times no doubt Because I feel that the truths expressed here are needed to be felt And how we feel can change over time And, I think, there are few thingsjoyful than experiencing my own truth and finding it syncing with teachings of humankind that has been passed on for a long time This book brought me that kind of joy

    2019 seems to be the year of the self help book, and I ve read a few so far this year, but Love For Imperfect Things is one of the best I loved it.I want to begin my review by saying something about the lovely quality of the way the hard backed book is produced The robust cover means that this is a book that will withstand years of use as readers dip in and out What really enhances Love For Imperfect Things though, are the wonderful illustrations by Lisk Feng They have a naive quality that e 2019 seems to be the year of the self help book, and I ve read a few so far this year, but Love For Imperfect Things is one of the best I loved it.I want to begin my review by saying something about the lovely quality of the way the hard backed book is produced The robust cover means that this is a book that will withstand years of use as readers dip in and out What really enhances Love For Imperfect Things though, are the wonderful illustrations by Lisk Feng They have a naive quality that enhances Haemin Sunim s writing that has been so skilfully translated by Deborah Smith In fact, the very first image in the book, of a seascape, made me feel instantlyrelaxed and calm.What works so effectively and affectingly in Love For Imperfect Things is the structure of the chapters Haemin Sunim is unafraid to lay bare his own imperfections so that both he and the reader can learn, advance and find peace and acceptance Each chapter opens with a personal account of events that have happened to Haemin Sunim and his responses to them, followed by brilliant advice presented in an almost poetic form I loved both these approaches The note to the author s graduate school friend brought tears to my eyes and his chapter on Listening Is An Act of Love brought me up short I simply don t do enough active listening to those around me.I genuinely felt taller and lighter after reading Love For Imperfect Things So much of it resonated with me In fact, I think, having read it right the way through once, I need to go back and reread Haemin Sunim s words again and again as I believe I have muchto learn about myself and others I never think I m good enough in whatever I do, but Love For Imperfect Things has shown me I don t need to be perfect I just need to be me and accept myself as I am.After I ve read books I tend to pass them on, but Love For Imperfect Things is a keeper I don t want to part with it because it spoke to me heart and soul Love For Imperfect Things is wise, accessible, humble and uplifting and I would urge others to read it too

    This book is a banal trawl through the blindingly obvious It restates stuff that, if you didn t know already, means that you re probably about 3 years old So often did I find myself thinking, No sh t Sherlock that I eventually gave up Don t buy this book Instead, go for a haircut and engage the barber in a chat or take a taxi ride and raise some subjects with the driver You ll learn just as much and gainvalue for your time and money.
