  • この人はロンドンで育って何不自由無い生活をしていた時に、とある僧侶の講演会を訪れたことがきっかけで感銘を受けて、自分も実際に僧侶として3年間インドで修行した後、そこで学んだことを世の中に広める為に活動している人。彼のPodcastとかは前から聴いていて、本人が朗読する本が出版されると知った去年からAudibleで予約していたもの。今月リリースされてすぐに耳読書開始。情報量が多すぎて、一回聴いただけでは咀嚼し切れないんだけど、昔から不変なこの人生哲学は、昔よりもずっとずっと便利になって、でもその分「本当の幸せ」を求めることが増えた現代人の心に響く。

    I vividly remember my first day at the monk school.
    I had just shaved my head, but I wasn’t wearing robes yet.
    And I still looked like I was from London.
    I noticed a child monk. He can’t be more than 10 years old, teaching a group of 5-year-olds.
    He had a great aura about him. The poise and confidence of an adult.
    “What are you doing?” I asked.
    “We just taught their first class ever” he said.
    Then asked me, “What did you learn in your first day at school?”
    “I started to learn the alphabet and numbers. What did they learn?”
    “The first thing we teach them is how to breathe”
    “Why?” I asked.
    “Because the only thing that stays with you from the moment you were born until the moment you die, is your breath.
    All your friends, your family, the country you live in…all of that can change. The one thing that stays with you is your breath”
    This 10-year-old monk added, “When you get stressed, what changes? Your breath. When you get angry, what changes? Your breath. We experience every emotion with the change of the breath. When you learn to navigate and manage your breath, you can navigate any situation in life”
