Money is the root of all evil. It causes greed, splits families, and ruins lives. Brian finds this out firsthand. Throughout his life, not having a lot of money, he was under the impression that money would make him happy. With Brian having several children and a wife, he figures that he would be able to give his children a better life if he had more money. His numbers come up, and he wins the jackpot. Investing the money and growing his newfound business, the greed kicks in. He wants more. He makes it seem as if he is doing it to help people, but it’s all about the bottom line. He expands at such a rapid pace that he starts taking out small businesses at first. Trying to balance family and business, he makes sure that what people see is a happy family, but it’s just an illusion. There is no limit to where he goes or how he gets there; nothing is off limits with him. His line of new friends are all people with power or money, people who could help him achieve his goal of obtaining more money. Avoiding tragedies in his own life because his life is so focused on the money, even his children try to get him to focus on dealing with life. When the ultimate tragedy strikes, reality hits him like a ton of bricks, and his world is turned upside down. He falls into a depression. His friend comes over and talks him out of the depression and has him focus on what he has right in front of him.

In this book, most of the examples are based on true life incidents. However, it is very difficult to translate the true spirit of a live presentation exactly into words. But, each story and example have been selected after a careful study and certainly convey some clear cut message to the readers. Some stories will speak to you louder than others. Some will have a deeper meaning. Some will make you cry. Some will make you laugh. Some will give you a warm feeling all over. Some may create action, reaction and chain reaction. Some may hit you right between the eyes only with some slight and right reaction. Some views and comments may compel you to think entirely about a new concept and Horizon of life. The views expressed in this book are based on true and real life experiences and also on detailed analytical studies. Further, a careful attempt has been made not to hurt the sentiments of any person irrespective of any caste, creed, gender or religions. However, it is reiterated herein again that if, on the basis of the advice given in the book, any person incurs any loss, the author, publisher and printer would disown and disclaim any liability for any such loss occurring under any circumstances, whatsoever. Readers may take decision and get advice from the book at their own risk, cost and sole discretion. The basic aim of this book is to present the unique ideas, innovative concepts and new thoughts before a common man, which may help him to lead his life peacefully, comfortable and successfully in this materialistic world. In this direction, if the author gets any success even partially in his arduous efforts, it would be an immense help and service to HUMANITY and a great prayer to ALMIGHTY GOD in a true sense.

From Iim Ahmedabad To Happiness

Author : Vijay K. Jain
ISBN : 9788190363907

File Size : 65.43 MB

This book is not about academics, not even about success; it is about happiness which we all, in the ultimate analysis, are striving for. The book is for those who have achieved success in their worldly affairs but hold that their role in life is much bigger than just pushing figures, making strategies, and managing men. Happiness, the book suggests, resides not in any outside object, but must spring up from within. Man's search for happiness is a search for a lost or hidden article, not of anything new. Each one of us has the power to regain the lost health, vitality and happiness, provided one develops the right faith, attains knowledge and then follows the right path.

Beyond Happiness

Author : Ezra Bayda
ISBN : 9781590309216
Genre : Philosophy
File Size : 24.16 MB

Many books have been published in recent years on happiness. Ezra Bayda, a remarkably down-to-earth Zen teacher, believes that the happiness "boom" has been largely a bust for readers. Why? Because it's precisely the pursuit of happiness that keeps us trapped in cycles of dissatisfaction and suffering. Bayda offers alternatives to achieve the deepest, most lasting form of happiness through Zen insights and simple mindfulness practices. Most of us continually seek happiness in things that are external to us. We imagine that getting more money, a better relationship, or going on a nice vacation will finally make us happy. But Zen teacher Ezra Bayda shows us that it is only by dropping our pursuit of happiness and learning to surrender to what actually is--surrendering to the truth of our lived experience--that we can find the deepest and most lasting form of happiness.

Praise for Beyond the PIG and the APE by Krishna Pendyala: "If you don''t think you can find profound joy and inner peace in your life, you might change your mind when you read this book." - Marc Allen Co-founder, New World Library Author, Visionary Business Publisher, The Power of Now "This book is extraordinary. It''s so important to ground our own minds before we can build those critical relationships with others. I have studied such practices for many years in service of business success and Krishna''s book illustrates the principles of settling the mind more simply and clearly than anything I have found." - Keith Ferrazzi Author, Never Eat Alone Founder, RelationshipMastersAcademy.com "Do yourself a favor and read Beyond the PIG and the APE. The book shows how we get trapped in unfulfilling behaviors, then lays out a clear path to personal happiness and joy." - Shannon Waller Co-author, Unique Ability: Creating The Life You Want Strategic Coach� "In my own life, formerly as a business CEO and now as a teacher of management, I have found that inner personal growth and effective decision-making go hand in hand: Krishna''s book is a guide to both." - John Rehfeld Author, Alchemy of a Leader Executive MBA Faculty, Pepperdine and University of San Diego We are told that happiness and the path to a better life can be found by looking within ourselves, but here''s the problem. Since the secret is not likely to be lying in a box marked "happiness," what exactly should we be looking for? Beyond the PIG and the APE is meant as a simple, practical guide to the inner search. The book starts by advising us "what to look out for" - the "inner creatures" that often lead us astray. The PIG of the title is the ever-present drive to Pursue Instant Gratification, while the APE is the drive to Avoid Painful Experiences. These inner animals aren''t always bad; in fact they are basic survival instincts that evolved to help us feed and protect ourselves. But in modern life, our primitive drives can get us in trouble - especially when the PIG and APE team up to "feed and protect" the Ego, a delusional mind-made identity that isn''t who we really are. Then we are sabotaged by "blind animal instincts in the service of pretense." The book uses real-life examples to show how the PIG, APE and Ego can keep us trapped in a maze of unhealthy habits, inner turmoil and conflict with the people in our lives. And the way out of the maze? Don''t even try to control your inner creatures, says the author. All it takes is awareness. Simply by growing aware of how the inner mischief distorts us and limits us, we begin to grow free of it. Better yet, this larger awareness can open up a world of possibilities that had long been obscured. We begin to live in harmony with life instead of struggling to mind-manage everything. After a pivotal chapter on "Becoming Aware," the book has four practical chapters devoted to: Learning to recognize "what''s driving you" in any situation, Making wiser decisions, Becoming more creative, And finding joy and peace amid the demands of a busy life. The "Story Bank" at the end of the book reinforces the main themes. These 21 true stories illustrate how the PIG, APE and Ego can defeat us - and how we can move beyond them - in the various "Life Spaces" we each inhabit: the spheres of life that involve Your Self, Your Partner, Your Friends, Your Work, Your Money, and Your Children. Throughout the book you get the same simple framework for inner awareness, viewed from many different angles. It''s a journey filled with laughs and surprises. But above all, it''s a journey that can help you discover the laughter and surprises in your life, every day.

Having noted the absence of happiness in human life, a group of scholars began to look for a way to attain this happiness. They could put their hands on the core of happiness by means of physical laws, so that they could reach it by following such a set of laws! However... Can worldly scientific laws, however great they may be, control happiness, make it surrender to them, and allow itself to be harnessed by their reins?! Are they able to help people actually taste happiness, so that the earth will become a garden of paradise?! How great this achievement would be, if only they could do it!

Acarya Pujyapada S Istopadesa The Golden Discourse

Istopadesa by Acarya Pujyapada is a concise work of 51 didactic verses leading the reader from the empirical to the transcendental, from the mundane to the sublime, through an experiential process of self-realization, rather than through a metaphysical study of the soul-nature. Concise but deep in import, Istopadesa unambiguously establishes the glory of the Self. It is an essential reading for the ascetic. The householder too who ventures to study it stands to benefit much as the work establishes the futility of the worldly objects and pursuits, and strengthens right faith, the basis for all that is good and virtuous.
