publication in 2012, and it has been translated from its original Korean by Chi Young Kim in collaboration with the author himself This year, in fact, marks the publication of its first English translation It is essentially a guide to mindfulness, of how to make the most of oneself despite outside factors sometimes wishing to throw us off course The subtitle of The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down, How to Be Calm in a Busy World will, I am sure, speak to many of us in the modern world I am personally a very calm person, and rarely get stressed out, but I find books like this lovely to dip in and out of they are soothing, almost.Sunim is a Buddhist monk, who lives between his native South Korea and the United States, where he lectures Building on a large Twitter and Facebook presence, where he tweets missives and guidance, he has aimed to offer advice on everything from handling setbacks at work to dealing with love and relationships His simple, compassionate teachings transcend religion, borders and ages, and serve as a calming reminder of the strength and joy that come from slowing down This inclusivity is admirable, certainly one thing which we dearly need in this world is a demonstration of the things which unite us, rather than divide us The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down has been split into several sections Rest , Mindfulness , Passion , Relationships , Love , Life , The Future , and Spirituality Each chapter opens with an essay, which muses upon the subject in question and how best Sunim thinks we should approach it, and is then followed by a series of short pieces, words of advice and wisdom.To me, a lot of the short sections felt a little cheesy and patronising, which I m sure was unintentional on part of the author we are told, for example Pat yourself on the back for the hard work you are doing Then go to bed one hour earlier as a gift to your body I preferred the essays, which were largely thoughtful and well thought through There are some nice pieces of advice given about how best to take notice of the world around us, and spending time with loved ones Occasionally, though, this advice is just plain odd, and blunt in its delivery A good family trip can prevent divorce Much of the book, as one might expect, spirals around spirituality and religion, two topics which do not particularly appeal to me as an atheist I did find that Sunim came across as rather preachy at times, which did not endear me to him However, he suggests meditation as a way to grasp one s own consciousness of the world and their place within it, which, I felt, was quite a nice piece of advice which could be easily worked into even a hectic day Some of his ideas are nice, and he is clearly passionate about what he is writing about, however, so there is a nice balance to be found within It does seem at times as though Sunim was merely working through his own insecurities whilst writing, and several of the asides seem downright obvious.On an aesthetic level, The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down has been beautifully designed, and put me in mind of the recent craze of lovely hygge hardbacks Lovely illustrations have been included throughout, which add yet another dimension of calm to the tome I believe that The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down will be of most use to those who suffer with anxiety disorders and depression it is a rather light but fitting book that can be read one small part at a time, and offers useful advice for seeing positives and focusing upon things of importance to the individual The author, in fact, recommends that it is not read all in one go, from cover to cover rather, he says, sections should be digested and reflected upon by the reader before he or she moves on The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down would be a very thoughtful addition to a loved one s bedside table or reading stack, to provide respite from hectic lives, stresses,

A philosophy of promoting peace and tranquility into our lives regardless of religious beliefs The author is a Buddist Monk from Korea and yet he is comfortable quoting favorite passages from the Bible or making references to Kalil Gibran Enlightening and Inspirational. It s a nice book, with some interesting insights into mindfulness, but I thought it was slightly repetitive In the beginning the author, Haemin Sunim, says that it s best read slowly to get the most out of it, but I read it pretty quickly Maybe that s why I found it a little repetative Anyway, I liked it for most parts. A book that is meant to read slowly I found reading a few pages before bed, upon rising or in the bath to be a good time It helped me to ground and balance. Heart warming, soothing, simple, yet full of wisdom Started reading it at a difficult time and this book helped me find myself back again I wouldn t say it is filled with extraordinary enlightenment, but that is the best part about it There are some simple yet powerful truth which we all know deep down inside, but it is so easy to loose our connection with those when we are too wound up in our busy life This book was a kind a gentle reminder to those truths for me A small book, but I took Heart warming, soothing, simple, yet full of wisdom Started reading it at a difficult time and this book helped me find myself back again I wouldn t say it is filled with extraordinary enlightenment, but that is the best part about it There are some simple yet powerful truth which we all know deep down inside, but it is so easy to loose our connection with those when we are too wound up in our busy life This book was a kind a gentle reminder to those truths for me A small book, but I took my time reading and thinking about the lines Will definitely read again and again And also will recommend to anyone who is distressed with anything in their life right now This book is a gem indeed I listened to the audiobook of The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down Guidance on the Path to Mindfulness from a Spiritual Leader after seeing a few positive reviews for it It s a short audiobook approximately 3 hours and while worth a listen, once, it didn t offer any groundbreaking or novel new ideas At best, it s a reminder to be present in the moment For example Be aware of your emotions as you experience them They are passing through Witness the emergence of a thought I listened to the audiobook of The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down Guidance on the Path to Mindfulness from a Spiritual Leader after seeing a few positive reviews for it It s a short audiobook approximately 3 hours and while worth a listen, once, it didn t offer any groundbreaking or novel new ideas At best, it s a reminder to be present in the moment For example Be aware of your emotions as you experience them They are passing through Witness the emergence of a thought Witness the disappearance of a thought.You can t have the good without at least sometimes experiencing the bad The audiobook was easy to listen to though at parts it seemed disjointed, transitioning to several semi related topics in a short span of time, with extended pauses in between Not sure what the actual book looks like and how the format of spacing and breaks are shown, but maybe that s how this was accounted for in the audio format A decent, fairly short listen with good reminders about the here and now, but not my favorite in this genre
