Hell go on and on with stories about tree-hugging or metaphors involving raw potatoes- hell tell you how to eat mindfully, even how to breathe and walk- hell suggest looking closely at a flower and to see the sun as your heart. As the Zen teacher Richard Baker commented, however, Nhat Hanh is a cross between a cloud, a snail, and piece of heavy machinery. Sooner or later, it begins to sink in that Nhat Hanh is conveying a depth of psychology and a world outlook that require nothing less than a complete paradigm shift. Through his cute stories and compassionate admonitions, he gradually builds up to his philosophy of interbeing, the notion that none of us is separately, but rather that we inter-are. The ramifications are explosive. How can we mindlessly and selfishly pursue our individual ends, when we are inextricably bound up with everyone and everything else? We see an enemy not as focus of anger but as a human with a complex history, who could be us if we had the same history. Suffice it to say, that after reading Peace Is Every Step, youll never look at a plastic bag the same way again, and you may even develop a penchant for hugging trees. --Brian Bruya
