I just need to give it some TLC. You can start reading this from anywhere and it’s a pleasure to go back and re-read. This is like spiritual reference material. On the back cover: The road is open. After reading the Peaceful Warrior I thought I’d give this one a try since Millman’s story and his learnings with his spiritual guide were a true story, and it was actually pretty good.
It describes a lot of “little” things one can do in everyday life to make the best of it and live a life of growth and fulfillment. Jan 23, Bridget rated it really liked it. This book is really similar to ” No ordinary Moments “, so I would recommend that one, but if you are into Millman, read it. Jul 01, Eric rated it really liked it Shelves: I read one chapter of this book a month, taking time to really absorb it.
It takes a look at all aspects of life and how you can make real changes, a little at a time. A practical guide to something nobody can really define, but we all feel on some level. Jul 28, C rated it did not like it Recommends it for: A packaged feel-good self-help book that manages to talk about everything and nothing. The advice is mostly common sense – the rest is superficial b. I’m planning to leave this one somewhere for someone else to pick up – maybe they’ll enjoy it more than I did.

I think the foundational premise is correct and the organizational structure sound Perhaps 20 years ago it would have resonated, but the “just do it” and “act like it enlightenment is true makes it true” are outdated. Neuroplasticity research has shown that there is more to our behavioral choices than self-discipline.
I wanted to li After completing Millman’s Peaceful Warrior meditation course I wanted to read something of his work. I wanted to like this book more than I do, and that makes leaning into the work not very attractive. Jul 04, Rick rated it liked it. Not earth shattering here but at the same time I think there were some good takeaways particularly about keeping it in perspective.

This guidebook by Dan Millman has useful and wise information for everyone. This book is not your typical trite self-help book that’s been rehashed times. Dan Millman has done extensive training in meditative disciplines, mystical practices, and other endeavors in the search for enlightenment. While he found these practices to be highly inspirational and wise, he also realized that these practices didn’t do any good if you couldn’t perform your everyday tasks in an enlightened manner.
Thus- This guidebook by Dan Millman has useful and wise information for everyone. The book offers 12 practical and well thought-out-of areas or gateways to pass through for optimal growth as a person emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Some of the gateways are: As you apply the suggestions in each chapter you’ll find yourself becoming more successful with that particular gateway. When you combine all the insights and wisdom you’ve learned from the gateways you can’t help but live in a more satisfied way. Dan makes it clear that none of us are ever going to perfect these gateways. They serve as signs and guides to lead us on the path of continual improvement.
After all, enlightenment is what you do in the moment. In other words, it’s the moment-to-moment awareness and actions that we bring to the present that make us enlightened. No one is ever completely enlightened-they just act more enlightened than others in their day-to-day affairs. I found many of the anecdotes in the book to be inspirational. Especially inspirational was the chapter about serving others.
Everyday Enlightenment | The Peaceful Warrior’s Way
There are many wonderful stories of people doing extraordinary acts of kindness to help others. If you don’t find these moving you might want to get your daj checked.
The wonderful thing about this book is that Dan writes in a clear fashion that is highly accessible to anyone.
He also offers practical examples that aren’t just fancy esoteric abstractions. Another thing of importance is that the information in this book doesn’t depend on your personal beliefs, sexuality, religion or anything similar. The information rises above factional differences to a unified place that works for all humanity. However, you have to have the effort and willpower to can the lessons taught. What makes Dan’s writing so impressive is that from these common bonds of enlightenment that apply to all of humanity he elaborates on them in a way that has personal meaning.
He doesn’t preach to people but accepts them as they are and shows them a path to take.
He realizes that everyone’s path is a little different but at the same time it’s the same as well The paradox of enlightenment. Read this book for yourself and start applying the techniques and lessons contained therein.
