What exactly is happiness that we spend our lives pursuing it more fiercely than anything else? The answer, Drs. Lickerman and ElDifrawi argue, is that happiness isn´t just a good feeling but aspecialgood feeling?in fact, thebestgood feeling we´re capable of having.Enduring happiness is something we all want yet many of us fail to achieve. Look around you. How many people do you know who would say they feel a constant and powerful sense of satisfaction with their lives? How many people do you imagine wouldn´t find their ability to be happy impaired by a significant loss, like the death of a parent, a spouse, or a child? How is it possible to be happy in the long-term when so many terrible things are destined to happen to us?In this highly engaging and eminently practical book?told in the form of a Platonic dialogue recounting real-life patient experiences?Drs. Lickerman and ElDifrawi assert that the reason genuine, long-lasting happiness is so difficult toachieve andmaintain is that we´re profoundly confused not only about how to go aboutit but also about what happinessis.In identifying ninebasicerroneous views we all have about what we need to be happy?views they term the core delusions?Lickerman and ElDifrawi show us that our happiness depends not on our external possessions or even on our experiences but rather on the beliefs we have that shape our most fundamental thinking. These beliefs,they argue,createten internal life-conditions, or worlds, through which we continuously cycle and that determine how happy we´re able to be.Drawing on the latest scientific research as well as Buddhist philosophy, Lickerman and ElDifrawiarguethat once we learn to embrace a correct understanding of happiness, we can free ourselves from the suffering the core delusions cause us and enjoy the kind of happinesswe all want, the kindfound in the highest of the Ten Worlds, the world of Enlightenment.The Ten Worlds:Hell Hunger Animality Anger Tranquility Rapture Learning Realization Compassion Enlightenment
A Wayside Tavern tells the story of a Suffolk drinking place from the end of the Roman occupation of Britain, until the present day. The Roman veteran, crippled and left behind, worshipped Mithras, so the place became known as the One Bull and down through the centuries it became a clearing house for contraband, a miniature Hell Fire Club, a fashionable hotel, a mere pub. Across the yard, was the church of St Cerdic, king and martyr, who fought the Danes and was famous for the miracles performed at his shrine. His remains were lost in the Reformation but something remained. Inside the inn, despite all external changes, one passion raged – to retain possession. 1. Language: English.

As children, we´re asked, ´´What do you want to be when you grow up?´´ As adults we´re asked, ´´What do you do for a living?´´ We identify with our jobs, they define us. We´re often so busy with our jobs, there´s little time to question our chosen paths. That is, until life steps in. The Great Recession of 2008 left hundreds of thousands feeling lost and insecure; a similar but much bigger event occurred in 1929. When such events occur, we could fall into despair or perhaps it could be the time to re-evaluate what we really want out of life. What is most important to you? Most of you would say that you´d like to be better, happier people. In their pursuit of happiness people have defined themselves by their careers, their money, their possessions. They have acted as though their self-esteem, their self-worth, could be bought. Material acquisition became a way of life. Bigger and more is better. And then in a nanosecond it all can disappear. Wealth vanishes, careers and jobs are wiped out. Then what? This paradigm could be referred to as living life outside in. Defining oneself by stuff that lies outside of our control, by how things appear on the outside, as though happiness and self-worth can be bought, is living outside in. This book focuses on a different paradigm: living inside out. Rather than defining oneself by titles, wealth, possessions, acquisitions, and other things, this model requires a look inside of ourselves to discover who we really are. It creates an empowering model that places individuals in control of their life, their personal value, and their happiness, rather than placing external circumstances in control of how we feel about ourselves. Religious thinkers, philosophers, secular humanists have for centuries argued that the pursuit of the ´´golden calf´´ will not provide ultimate happiness. 1. Language: English.

True happiness is an ´´inside job´´. Look at a happy person´s life and you don´t see any magic or unicorns. There´s nothing in them that isn´t also in you. Though external realities can certainly play a role, happiness doesn´t spring from what you have, what happens to you, the situation you are in, where you are, or anything else. In fact, if it was easy to be happy, this book would be a very short one! Happiness doesn´t have much to do with money, with achievement, or with possessions, because plenty of people have all three and are still not happy. In this guide, we´ll approach happiness not as something you have, but something you actively do, each and every day. The 7 Habits of Exceptionally Happy People will help you to: Understand and apply the key principles of living a happy life in an easy step-by-step way Let go of things, thoughts, behaviors, and people that do not serve you anymore Identify and use your unique strengths and virtues Realize that ´´huffy fluffy´´ concepts such as forgiveness, gratitude, and mindfulness are actually extremely powerful ...and much more inside! Learn how to love your life and become a happier person today! Are you ready? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Francie Wyck.

Summary, analysis, and review of Ryan Holiday´s and Stephen Hanselman´s The Daily Stoic by Instaread. Preview: The Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman is an introduction to the practical application of Stoic philosophy in the format of a daily devotional. Often derided as discouraging emotion, Stoicism is a philosophy that encourages discipline, fortitude, and control of perceptions. The greatest possession of a Stoic is reasoned choice, which cannot be taken away. There are three disciplines in the practice of Stoicism. Perception is the first discipline; it focuses on the need for accurate and unbiased observation of the world. This requires clarity of thought free from external influences or extreme emotions. This internal peace is reflected in the Stoic´s externally calm demeanor. A Stoic must be self-aware and have an unbiased perception of himself or herself. Action is the second discipline of Stoicism. Stoics act in the best interest of the self and others according to their values and the character they want to cultivate....
