'Perhaps you wonder what a dusty old Buddhist ex-monk has to say that's relevant to your life. Fair enough. Let me tell you what the book is not. It's not about religion. It's not about telling you how to live your life. It's not about taking on a new set of beliefs. Plain and si...mple, it's about how to relate to your own thoughts and emotions in a way that makes your life more enjoyable, more free, brighter, clearer and wiser.' At the age of twenty-six, Bjoern Natthiko Lindeblad abandoned a promising career, gave away all his possessions and left his loved ones to become a forest monk in Thailand. For seventeen years he lived his life according to the rules of the monastery. After returning to Swedish society, he was met with a diagnosis of a progressive, incurable disease: ALS. In I May Be Wrong, he shares his hard-won insights into how one can live a more present life, and what stands out as most important when things are coming to an end. The result is a beautiful, powerful and urgent last lesson on how we can live more peacefully with ourselves, and come to accept the uncertainty that is a part of all we do.Read more
