Everyone of us are occupied with our day today activities. Stress and pain is part of life. We get some free time and we were not able to reflect ourselves and we look out for solutions. Most of the time we try not make ourselves free. In this case meditating or reflecting our life is tough.
I always tried meditating everyday for some time but couldn't schedule my time. Downloaded multiple apps on my mobile still no use of it.

Then this book caught my eye. All my life I had an assumption that meditation is done sitting quiet and reflecting. But there was no proper guidance. Many books and apps will give the technique but no proper reflection can be done.
I am reading the second book of Shubha Villas and I think author made a point to have reflection on everyone. 
You can start this book at any chapter or any time of the day. Every chapter will enlighten you with one or other aspect of life. Total 64 chapters can be read quickly. After every chapter Author will give the short reflections.

Most of time author takes examples from Mahabharata and Ramayana which make easy to understand. Simple language is used to describe the life and everyday activities. Open Eyed Meditation the Book title is justified when you start reading the book. 
Author has the unique quality of describing the life story. He do not judge the situation or mislead you on any situation. Author let you to make your own decisions through this book. When you start reading the book you are the master of your life and you have the power over your imaginations. Some point you just get enlightened with your situation. As it is said ' you are only responsible for your happiness and sadness.'  Today everyone want a peaceful life. This book helps you to trigger your senses and make the decisions. 
There is one chapter " Can I change without Changing?" which help me to understand the change in life. The reflection author give is " .....Changes can be external or internal... To accept the outside change with grace is a sign of maturity..." This what makes this book special. Every chapter every page filled with wisdom.  This is the Open Eyed Meditations.

Verdict:
Book for everyday life. Everyone of us need have copy and read when you get time. Mixer of spiritual and philosophy. One who looking at reflecting on his life then its the right book.

What you get?
Good knowledge and reflection on life. Help to reduce stress. Develop a simple sense of humor. Understand the human behavior in better way. You can decide what is good for you and what is bad.
