Patience: The Art of Peaceful Living


Th wonderfully written guide to developing one thing many of us ca use a great deal more of.

To survive the roller coaster ride of life-the seemingly endless shifts from pleasure to pain, gain to loss, and praise to blame- requires a substantial depth of patience. And yet patience is one thing many feel they have precious little of. In this life-changing book, Allan Lokos sheds new light on this much sought-after state of being and provides a road map for cultivating more patience in one 's life.

According to Lokos, anger and patience are two sides of the same coin and, herefore, if we hope to develop our ability to be patient we must first learn to recognize and tame anger 's many manifestations-from annoyance, rage, and resentment, to ill will, sentimen, and disgust. In this revelatory book, Lokos draws on years of Buddhist practice, as ofte as interviews with a broa range of people who have had their patience tested-and often sorely so-in order to discover where the heart of patience lies.

Th step-by-step uide to weathering life 's storms from an inspiring spiritual teacher, Patience will help readers discover greater peace and contentment in their lives.
