Description

‘This book really, really will stay with me forever. It’s not only laced with the most incredible wisdom, but it’s also gentle and beautiful and eloquent. It brought me so much joy and so much comfort’ FEARNE COTTONThe Sunday Times bestselling book of comfort and timeless wisdom from former forest monk, Björn Natthiko Lindeblad___________ Let me tell you what this book is not. It’s not about religion. It’s not about telling you how to live your life. It’s not about taking on a new set of beliefs. Plain and simple, it’s about how to relate to your own thoughts and emotions in a way that makes your life more enjoyable, more free, brighter, clearer and wiser. We like to think we understand what’s happening around us; that we can determine the path our life takes. But often, things don’t go that way – in fact, they rarely do. What helps us respond to life as it unfolds? To live freely, stay humble and find comfort in difficult times? In the Swedish sensation I May Be Wrong, former forest monk Björn Natthiko Lindeblad shares his advice on how to face the uncertainty and doubt that is a natural part of life. We don’t choose our thoughts. We don’t control the shape they take, or what pops into our minds. We can only choose whether or not to believe them. Infusing the everyday with heart, grace and gentle humour, this is a book to help us all navigate the realities of modern life.___________‘I read it, turning down the corners of pages I wished to refer back to, and marking certain passages with a pencil. By the end, almost every page was folded and marked TELEGRAPH‘A book of some brilliance’ DAILY MAIL ‘Genuinely stays with you . . . Will encourage you to let go of the small stuff, accept the things you cannot control and open your heart and mind to a more happy and peaceful life’ WOMAN & HOME‘With our potential to maintain a peaceful state of mind, it is possible to remain optimistic in the face of difficulties. Björn Natthiko Lindeblad, a former forest monk in Thailand, relates his experience of training to properly direct his thoughts which can benefit all’ HIS HOLINESS THE DALAI LAMA
