Find Happiness in Gratitude The four keys to the Gate of Heaven: As it turns out, Buddha had quite a lot to say on the subject of gratitude, including citing it as one of the four keys to the Gate of Heaven. Why is this? Perhaps the sheer simplicity of gratefulness is a key, as it is available to all of us at any time. Even in the midst of over-busyness, stress, and chaos, we can find plenty to be glad about, and The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude will start your journey towards Zen and gratefulness. Count your blessings: According to Buddha, “You have no cause for anything but gratitude and joy.” Being thankful is one of the most powerful tools we humans have to attain peace of mind and happiness. Take time each day and count your blessings. This can be done with a prayer or mindfulness mediation, whichever works for you. This lovely, uncomplicated approach featured in The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude could be life-changing. Increase your happiness: Studies show―and experts counsel―that gratitude is a key component of our happiness. People who are grateful about events and experiences from the past, who celebrate triumphs instead of focusing on losses or disappointments, tend to be more satisfied. Gratitude can help us transform our fears into courage, our anger into forgiveness, our isolation into belonging, and another’s pain into healing. Follow the advice of Buddhist leader Thich Nhat Hanh, “With all I have experienced in my own life, the power of gratitude stands above everything else. In your mindfulness practice, use gratitude until it becomes your way of life.” The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude will show you the way. Inside The Buddha’s Guide to Gratitude, we have provided you with positive thinking “power tools” that will help you build a more grateful life, including: • Mindful meditations • Hands-on exercises • Profound practices • Inspiring quotations • Space for notetaking and journaling • Thought-provoking questions

"Are you spiritual but not religious, searching for a clear and straightforward path into personal growth and happiness? Sharon Cormier's book is down-to-earth and easy to understand, taking us on a clear path to becoming our best self. Along the way we discover how to transform an unsatisfactory frame of mind into one of happiness and gratitude. Being Buddha-ish provides a guide to work with our thoughts and emotions. It shows us how to commit to live with kindness and generosity and helps us learn to live with the uncertainty and change that is a natural part of life. This path was laid out by the historical Buddha 2,500 years ago and is remarkably relevant today.One of the basic messages in Being Buddha-ish is how to transform the negative voice in your head, the Inner Sidekick, into a source of wisdom that allows you to let go of painful memories and projected fears. Dwelling in the present moment with the practices of meditation and mindfulness, we find our inherent goodness is always available.This book shows us how the Buddha's path teaches that happiness is available when we are willing to use the simple practice of lovingkindness, to live each day in gratitude, to cultivate compassion for others and find joy in the everyday happenings of our lives. As we learn to embrace change we learn who we are and let our essential inner goodness shine outward. We become Buddha-ish"

In Part Two, "Adult Meditations," adults learn three meditations to give them an opportunity to learn and meditate on their own before teaching children. Part Three, "Children's Meditations," includes 10 meditations suitable for children, organized from simplest to most complex. The children's meditations include the "Sunshine Meditation," in which the child learns to breathe in a "sunshine ball of light" full of love. The "Om Meditation" helps children calm themselves and feel love, even when their parents are away. All the children's meditations use repetition and simple words and images that children can easily understand. Parents who have used Lisa's techniques marvel at how their children have become calmer and more focused since they started meditating.

Paul Williams is an alcoholic. Tracey Jackson is not. But together, these two close friends have written Gratitude and Trust, a book designed to apply the principles of the recovery movement to the countless people who are not addicts but nevertheless need effective help with their difficulties and pain. Williams, the award-winning songwriter, actor, and performer, has embraced a traditional alcoholism recovery plan for more than two decades of sobriety. Jackson, a well-known TV and film writer—and veteran of many years of traditional therapy—has never been a drunk or a drug abuser, but she realized that many of the tenets of Williams’s program could apply to her. In Gratitude and Trust, Williams and Jackson ask: What happens to those who struggle with vexing problems yet are not full-blown addicts? Are there any lessons to be learned from the foundational and time-tested principles of the recovery movement? Whether you’re tethered to your phone or you turn to food for comfort; whether you’re a perfectionist and can’t let things go or are too afraid to fail to even try; whether you can find intimacy only on the Internet or you’ve been involved in a string of nasty relationships—the first step toward feeling better about yourself and your life is the realization that you are what’s standing in your way. Williams and Jackson have designed a new, positive program, based on a half-dozen new affirmations, that can help conquer your vices, address personal dysfunction, and start to brighten the darkest moods. Gratitude and Trust is an essential, inspirational, and uplifting guide to identifying and changing maladaptive behaviors in order to uncover your most productive, healthiest self.

The fast pace, the poor economy and the relentlessly negative mainstream media lead to ever-growing feelings of isolation in the midst of a crowd. At times it may seem as if the world is coming apart at the seams and bringing many of us along with it. And yet, there are people who remain unaffected by these challenges. They aren't special-nor are they always rich or lucky or even particularly intelligent. They're just average people who have decided that there must be more to life than this. They respond rather than react. They keep still at the center. This book delves into the life of one such woman, offering up many of the processes, techniques and insights she's used in order to help those who are ready for change. As you read this description, ask yourself the following questions. Are you tired of feeling anxious, unloved, helpless, depressed, tethered or disenchanted? Have you had the realization that there must be more to life but you don't know how or where to start? Are you already on the path of discovering peace through meditation, personal development or spiritual growth and are hungry to discover more? This book will do its best to provide answers to these questions and more. Melanie draws from 3 decades of experience and exploration in personal growth work, spiritual growth, meditation, mindfulness, therapies and workshops. People from all walks of life who have implemented some of these processes have found a level of freedom, fulfillment and peace that they could not have previously imagined. Relationships improve, stress dissolves, life flows and becomes an adventure again. Penny, small business owner and mother of two children says, "the best thing about this book is that you can read it on a Sunday and by the next Sunday you are already seeing results." If you choose to delve deeply into just one of a dozen different topics in this book, your life will improve. As you start to feel better, and more aware, relaxed, and empowered, you will want to unpack and explore some of the other topics because you will be able to taste the freedom. Don't be satisfied with a lackluster life. Don't put up with feeling needlessly anxious or unfulfilled. Be the one who takes the next step into freedom beyond your expectations. All you have to do to improve your life is to keep reading. Each chapter will give you new insights as you explore a new way of living in this world.

How do contemporary films depict Buddhists and Buddhism? What aspects of the Buddhist tradition are these films keeping from our view? By repeatedly romanticizing the meditating monk, what kinds of Buddhisms and Buddhists are missing in these films and why? Silver Screen Buddha is the first book to explore the intersecting representations of Buddhism, race, and gender in contemporary films. Sharon A. Suh examines the cinematic encounter with Buddhism that has flourished in Asia and in the West in the past century – from images of Shangri-La in Frank Capra's 1937 Lost Horizon to Kim Ki-Duk's 2003 international box office success Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring. The book helps readers see that representations of Buddhism in Asia and in the West are fraught with political, gendered, and racist undertones. Silver Screen Buddha draws significant attention to ordinary lay Buddhism, a form of the tradition given little play in popular film. By uncovering the differences between a fictionalized, commodified, and exoticized Buddhism, Silver Screen Buddha brings to light expressions of the tradition that highlight laity and women, on the one hand, and Asian and Asian Americans, on the other. Suh engages in a re-visioning of Buddhism that expands the popular understanding of the tradition, moving from the dominance of meditating monks to the everyday world of raced, gendered, and embodied lay Buddhists.
