Simplicity that can change your perspective

Honestly helped change my perspective on a few things in my life. The simple language is easy to understand and the examples given really help get the points he's trying to make across and are relatable. Definitely worth a listen and I will reference back to this book I'm sure many times. This book caters to all people of all faiths but if you are a spiritual person that lacks any label, this little guidebook is perfect. Reminds us about kindness to all, explains compassion and helps you understand how your own perspective and reactions play the largest role in how you see life, see others and see yourself. And how this impacts not only your life, but all others as well.
Great narration and layout. A quick read.
