Wabi ​sabi ("wah-bi sah-bi") is a captivating concept from Japanese aesthetics, which helps us to see beauty in imperfection, appreciate simplicity and accept the transient nature of all things.

Beth Kempton: Wabi Sabi (angol) Japanese Wisdom for a Perfectly Imperfect Life

Hát, mint az ismeretes, én általában nagy lelkesedéssel fogok neki mindennek, ami Japánnal, meg a japán nép életfelfogásával, és kultúrájával kapcsolatos, de ez a könyv nekem rettentően nem feküdt. Olyan érzésem volt, mintha be akarná szabályozni az életemet, és megmondani, mit hogyan csináljak ahhoz, hogy az élete tökéletesen tökéletlen legyen.Amit leírt, az nem én vagyok, nem is leszek, és nem is akarok lenni soha. Arról nem beszélve, hogy az itt leírtakat ebben a társadalomban nagyon nehéz alkalmazni. Bevallom, másra számítottam. Az meg hab volt a tortán, hogy az író személyisége se volt szimpatikus, legalábbis az nem, ami az írásmódjában tükröződik.
Én személy szerint az Ikigai szellemiségét sokkal inkább magaménak érzem.
Jelen esetben a két csillag tisztán a borítóé meg azé a néhány soré, amit a 200+ oldalas könyvben hasznosnak találtam.

There are many ways in which we inadvertently use perfection – and perfectionism – to stop us embracing life:
• As a defence mechanism
• As a stalling tactic
• As an excuse
• As a form of control
• As a weapon
• As a judgement metric
• As a mask for a buried wound
• As an extreme response to criticism
• As a cloak to hide the truth

I believe it’s when we live in relationship with nature, respecting it and flowing in rhythm with it, that we feel at our best and appreciate each day, moment by moment. Wabi sabi is intimately intertwined with this fundamental relationship with nature. It relates to the acceptance of the transience of all things, and the experiencing of life with all the senses.

The life lessons wabi sabi can teach us, and which we will explore in this book, are rooted in the following ideas:
• The world looks very different when you learn to see and experience it from your heart.
• All things, including life itself, are impermanent, incomplete and imperfect. Therefore, perfection is impossible, and imperfection is the natural state of everything, including ourselves.
• There is great beauty, value and comfort to be found in simplicity.

We are living in a time of brain-hacking algorithms, pop-up propaganda and information everywhere. From the moment we wake up, to the time we stumble into bed, we are fed messages about what we should look like, wear, eat and buy, how much we should be earning, who we should love and how we should parent. Many of us probably spend more time thinking about other people’s lives than investing in our own. Add to this the pace at which we are encouraged to function, and it’s no wonder so many of us are feeling overwhelmed, insecure, untethered and worn out.
