Look around you - what do you see? You may discover to your surprise that the people who are most at peace with money are the ones who walk nimbly between having too little and having too much. They have found a balance between indulgence and austerity; between success and happiness; between motivation and inspiration; and between any number of other poles we tend to think of as either/or choices, but which in reality are simply posts on either side of a doorway through which we must pass.
For many of us the subject of money is unavoidably stressful. Managing our personal finances is complicated, time consuming and often, particularly in the slow countdown to pay day, dispiriting. The good news is that in Japan - where a Zen approach to life is more widely practiced - a pathway to a better relationship with money is being carved, by Ken Honda.
This beautifully written book will reinvent the way you see your personal finances. You will come to understand that money flows like water and arrives like a guest. You'll rethink your own attitudes and examine the way they were shaped by beliefs about money you were taught as a child. When we heal the fear and anxiety we have about money, we successfully achieve prosperity and peace.
Take the zen path to financial security and happiness.

Happy money or unhappy money - it is the energy with which your money is given or received.
Money circulated with love,care and friendship is happy money. Money circulated in frustration, anger and sadness is unhappy money.
Look at money like as energy that is flowing all around. You are responsible for the charge of energy you infuse your money with. So how do you positively charge your money to create happy money? Gratitude and appreciation. It's that simple.
However same thing is repeated again and again. It's a small book so you can read it fastand take the best out of it.
Say a thank you note mentally when you spend money arigato in Japanese
Another very interesting point in the book is
our approach in saving money ...he says if you save out of fear,anxiety you will feed it,creating more blocks,rather save it while you imagine the many fun ways to spend it
The prose is simple and the actions are easy to be followed.
Top reviews from other countries
Like most self help books (or whatever they call them these days) it lacks any real content. A series of probably fabricated anecdotes and obvious advice that is backed up by zero evidence.
One to avoid.
I found it insightful, inspiring and a joy to read - and this is coming from someone who has always struggled with a mindset of scarcity, fear and lack around money.
Arigato Ken Honda, I am forever grateful to have found this book.
However if you're looking for something to help you fix a bad relationship with money or increase your earnings this book is too surface level to help. I was left really disappointed after reading this.
Innocence and naivety are all good and well, but when the genre is one of advice or self-help or whatever, it is glib at best and at worst, dangerous.
