“The Wisdom to Know the Difference is about being able to change... What is important is that we can make a change and transform ourselves into better, happier people.”
–—The Dalai Lama
“We've all heard "grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, and the courage to change the things I can," but we rarely hear how to find the wisdom to know and act on the difference. Until now. This beautiful book weaves together fascinating stories and timeless wisdom from across spiritual traditions to create a practical map for all of us to navigate this very question.”
—Diana Winston, Director of Mindfulness Education, UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center, and author of Wide Awake: A Buddhist Guide for Teens.
“In The Wisdom to Know the Difference Eileen Flanagan effortlessly weaves the wisdom of the ordinary people she has met on her path with the extraordinary wisdom of many spiritual teachers into a rich tapestry. A thoroughly good read from beginning to end, I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking spiritual wisdom.”
—Karen Casey, Ph.D. author of Each Day A New Beginning
