Information is not knowledge.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.
Johann Wolgang von Goethe
There comes a time when the mind takes a higher plane of knowledge
but can never prove how it got there.
Books from Thich Nhat Hahn (any of them :-), pls note that the books of Thich Nhat Hahn support a buddhist value system. If you manage to set that aside if you are not buddhist (we are not ourselves), you can profit uniquely from the universal truth they contain. Far beyond, their are very pragmatic and at the heart of daily life. If you get irritated by the buddhist orientation...take a breath and change author :-), the other authors below are much more neutral even though no completely: stay alert and sort out what you can take or not without anger, filled with compassion for yourself and the world).
