No Time Like the Present

Rating
In this landmark work, internationally beloved teacher of meditation and mindfulness Jack Kornfield reveals that you can be happy now, this minute, with the keys to inner freedom. In his first major book in several years, the inspiring author of the classic A Path with Heart, Jack Kornfield, invites us into a new awareness. Through his signature warmhearted, poignant, often funny stories, with their Aha moments and O. Henry-like outcomes, Jack shows how we get stuck and how we can free ourselves, wherever we are and whatever our circumstances. Renowned for his mindfulness practices and meditations, Jack provides these keys for opening gateways to immediate shifts in perspective and clarity of vision, allowing us to see how to change course, take action, or--when we shouldn't act--just relax and trust. Each chapter presents a path to a different kind of freedom--freedom from fear, freedom to start over, to love, to be yourself, and to be happy--and guides you into an active process that engages your mind, heart, and spirit, awakens your spirit, and brings real joy, over and over again. Drawing from his own life as a son, brother, father, and partner, and on his forty years of face-to-face teaching of thousands of people across the country, Jack presents a stirring call to be here, in the power of the now, the present, as we work through life's passages. His keys to life will help us find hope, clarity, relief from past disappointments and guilt, and the courage to go forward.

Reviews

"In this book, Jack Kornfield wonderfully evokes the spaciousness, the ease, and the radiance of a free heart and mind. Even more important--he clearly lays out a path whereby any one of us can move from distant admiration of the idea to actually living it day by day."--Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Love "Jack Kornfield is a wonderful storyteller and a great teacher."--Thich Nhat Hanh, author of Creating True Peace "A treasure trove of emotionally inspiring stories revealing the paths to freedom in our diverse lives. In this magnificent book, Jack Kornfield guides us with his transformative teachings of wisdom and inner peace. This is a work of heart, a gift of Jack's personal experiences as well as his lifetime of learning about what brings meaning, connection, and clarity to life. There is no time like the present to soak in the life-affirming invitations and practices that can enrich how we engage with others, the world, and ourselves. Enjoy!"--Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., author of Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human and Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation "This book is a treasure of useful insights and practical ways of coping with our egoic and false-self search for satisfactions that lead nowhere, except to needless suffering. His charming and sympathetic suggestions for healing fill this book with encouragement and compassion for ourselves and others."--Fr. Thomas Keating, founding member and the spiritual guide of Contemplative Outreach, LTD "Jack is one of the world's wisest, kindest, and most helpful teachers. Reading his book is like sitting and chatting with him about the most important things in your life. He is so warm, so full of practical suggestions, and so generous with simple but transformative practices. This book is beautiful, inspiring, and profound."--Rick Hanson, Ph.D., author of Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom "A consomm� of goodness, heart, laughter, tears, and breath, nourishing and delicious. Rich in hope and deep wisdom for these revved up, rattling times."--Anne Lamott author of Grace (Eventually) Praise for Jack Kornfield "One of the great spiritual teachers of our time."--Alice Walker "'Only in the darkness can you see the stars, ' said Martin Luther King, in days that were almost as dark as our own. Like a brilliant star to guide us in these days of darkness Jack Kornfield's new book appears just at the right moment. It reminds us that there is No Time Like the Present--no matter how dark--to rescue threatened values--freedom, love, joy--within us and in the world around us. Like Rabbi Hillel, Jack challenges us: 'If not now, when?'"--Brother David Steindl-Rast, Benedictine monk, co-founder of Gratefulness.org "With its incomparable blend of deep wisdom, evocative stories, and powerful meditations, No Time Like the Present is the fruit of a lifetime of spiritual teaching. Jack Kornfield's message is, we don't have to wait. Love, peace, freedom . . . it's all available right here, in this very heart."--Tara Brach, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge
