A Clear Mind presents a memoir of Robert Tosei Osterman's observations on individual existences, focusing on his thoughts and ongoing practice to purify and calm his mind. A pure mind is able to see all things in their beauty and wonder. A purified mind brings real freedom-freedom from clinging to life and freedom from the fear of death. For Osterman, this clarity only came to him when he sincerely applied himself to the practice of attentiveness. It is his belief that this is the most important thing that anyone can do in life.
He recorded his daily random observations, presented here and arranged under ten themes. He explores the concept of life after death, reviewing his own experience after surviving the randomness of lymphoma and the devastation that it brought to his life.
Is there life after death? Can one be truly happy and free in this life? In A Clear Mind, the ordinary becomes the extraordinary, from the children on the school bus that Osterman drives to the winter scenes he experiences. Follow one man's path toward the clarification of his mind and the journey to make his mind right.
