Day 54: From Aspinal with Love

London 13th Dec 2010

After years of being a loyal reader of Vanity Fair, this was their gift to me... an Aspinal coin purse. Only that it came after the weekend I bought my Miu Miu one.

Day 47: The Power Of Now

Taken with Nikkie 
Monday 6 December 2010

Another month has gone by and it is another book recommendation. This month I choose "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle. As cheesy and “self-help” as the title may sound, this is one of the most enlightening books I have ever read; just fascinating. I think everyone should also read it (along with “Being In Love”).

If you feel you can’t stop thinking, planning or worrying, this is the book to read. We all seem to be nostalgic about the past or anxious about the future, why can't we just enjoy the present moment? Why do many people find it difficult to be alone or to be surrounded by quietness? Why do we choose to be constantly bombarded with some sort of noise, either music or television or whatever else that creates a sound?

This book makes you aware that present moment is so precious, why do we waste it by thinking about so much … crap? In a way it helps you to learn meditation through every day actions. By being in the presence more often, you will be more observant, more zen, which in turn makes you calmer and happier in this fast and furious world. Of course it doesn’t tell you to stop thinking or planning all together, but there is a time for work and a time for proper rest (watching crappy TV at the end of the working day/week does not count).

Through this book I have learned that I don’t need to listen to music or constantly reading something when I travel. I find pleasure in doing tedious things like washing the dishes or doing the ironing (which many people find weird but my boyfriend is also happy with it); including eating alone. I find myself calmer, happier; and more effective when I actually do work.

I hope whoever gives this book a try will find it useful!
