Vernon Kitabu Turner shows that how we handle common problems could easily determine the outcome of more serious matters. Learning to cope with the little things can preserve our well-being or even save our life - or that of a loved one. Under The Sword reminds the reader how to engage the hidden aspects of ourselves and how, with a unity of mind and spirit, we can claim an absolute autonomy of the self that will protect us from damage at moments of crisis. Frequently using game and sports analogies, the author gives us the wherewithal to re-order our minds to our own advantage. He teaches us to be like the samurai, and make our own mind our friend. This is a lesson that can transform our lives.
As well as being uniquely inspiring, this book is also highly practical. If we strive to be safe and to advance in this world, we need to keep before us the idea that we are under the sword. Through step-by-step advice presented in an engaging style, Zen master Vernon Kitabu Turner teaches you how to follow his example.
