Wabi Sabi For Everyday Life
Dominated by stress, multitasking and perfectionism, our current existence generates a growing unhappiness, since this way of life takes us away from the true essence of reality. And, although it may seem a contradiction, neither does it help us to obtain better results in the different areas of our lives. The ancient philosophy of wabi sabi, which in Japanese means “the beauty of imperfection”, is an authentic, personal and nature-connected way to take care of ourselves, recover our inner harmony and grow. In the same way that in Japan a cup with irregularities, and even with a crack, is considered more beautiful and valuable than a perfect, symmetrical and uniform one, the philosophy of wabi sabi brings together three characteristics of nature: 1. Nothing is perfect (and it is better that way) 2. Nothing is forever (the ephemeral nature of things and people is what gives them value). Based on these principles, this enlightening book shows how the philosophy of wabi sabi can revolutionize our life in all areas, making us more sensitive to beauty and more creative. In short, more humane and happier.
