Reduced to Joy free pdf Mark Nepo is emerging as one of the truly significant writers and thinkers of today. Nepo has a singular way of distilling great truths down to their essence. Moreover, Nepo attributes his comeback from cancer to the power of the writing process and not once but twice. In "Reduced to Joy, "Mark Nepo gets to the stuff of happiness with deep wisdom, poetic passages and personal revelations. Nepo reminds us all of the secret and sacred places within, forgotten in the noise and chatter of our busy distracted 21st Century lives. "Reduced to Joy" is a lesson in stillness, in standing in the mystery and, above all, in the work of love.
From the book:
"Often, what keeps us from joy is the menacing assumption that life is happening other than where we are. So we are always leaving, running from or running to. All the while, joy rises like summer wind, waiting for us to grow in the open, large as willows it can sing through. Yet failing to grow in the open, we can be worn to it. Though working with what we're given till it wears us through seems to be the grace we resist. Like everyone, I have spent so much of my life fearing pain that I have seldom felt things all the way through. And falling through more than working through, I've learned that if we can stay true to our experience and to each other, and face the spirit that experience and love carry, we will eventually be reduced to joy. Like cliffs worn to their beauty by the pounding of the sea, if we can hold each other up, all that will be left will be wonder and joy."
