‘What Helps’ contains sixty jewels of wisdom, each of them grounded in messy human reality and connected to the light. Using these slogans will bring you solace, fresh insights, laughter, and hope. Each of them will illuminate your problems from a new perspective, and lead to practical solutions. They will remind you that you are perfectly acceptable, just as you are.
This book is a love letter to you. It is designed for ordinary foolish beings (like the author) who are motivated to live a good life, and to lessen their own suffering and the suffering of those around them. Working through the questions in each chapter will bring understanding and self-compassion and, as you feel better about yourself, you will naturally move forwards with more patience, understanding and love.
Pick up this book, enjoy the stories, and choose a few slogans to carry around in your pocket. They will always be with you.
