How can we stay engaged with life day after day? How can we continue to love–to keep our minds in a happy mood–when life is complex, difficult, and, often, disappointing? Bestselling author and beloved teacher Sylvia Boorstein asked herself these questions when she started to write this inspiring new book. The result is her best work to date, offering warm, wise, and helpful ways we can experience happiness even when the odds are against us. As Boorstein has discovered in more than three decades of practice as a professional psychotherapist, the secret to happiness lies in actively cultivating our capacity to connect with kindness: with ourselves; with friends, family, colleagues; with those we may not know well; and even with those we may not like. She draws from the heart of Buddhist teachings to show how Wise Effort, Wise Mindfulness, and Wise Concentration can lead us away from anger, anxiety, and confusion, and into calmness, clarity, and the joy of living in the present. These qualities strengthen our ability to meet encounters of every kind with balance and intelligence, providing us with a grounded sense of true contentment. Happiness Is an Inside Job resonates with the knowledge of a psychotherapist, the compassion of a spiritual teacher, and the wisdom of a grandmother. Boorstein’s vivid stories capture our minds and our hearts, and the simple exercises she suggests can be done while you read. This beautiful book is comforting and reminds us that life is a shared journey, that our hearts truly do want to console and love our fellow sojourners, and that living happily is indeed the best way to live. From the Hardcover edition.

It will open your inner eye to the beauty of your own being.” —Deepak Chopra, MD, author of The Healing Self and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success How can we transform our collective fear and the deep divisions between us into meaningful change? In Freedom Is an Inside Job, bestselling author, humanitarian, and TV personality Zainab Salbi shares that to transform our outer world, we must turn towards our inner world. After years of working as a successful CEO and change-maker, Salbi realized that if she wanted to confront and heal the shadows of the world, she needed to face her own shadows first. Holding nothing back, Salbi shares pivotal moments from her personal life alongside poignant and fascinating stories from her encounters around the world.

This is the path to freedom.”
When we look around us, we find so much suffering in the world that we can't help but ask "why"? Long time ago God in Hosea 4:6 lamented that his people were being destroyed for the lack of knowledge. His people are still being destroyed today. The question again is "Why"? As Christians, Jesus has given us the authority over all the powers of the thief, murderer, destroyer, and our real enemy Satan also known as the devil. Somehow, we seem to have forgotten our spiritual heritage, our spiritual rights and responsibilities, and therefore the devil has taken undue advantage of our ignorance. This prayer book along with the companion end-time spiritual warfare book, "Target or Weapon-Sound The Alarm" provide instructions on how to stand on the Word of God, to help you vanquish the controlling spirits in your life. Let these prayers be part of your daily spiritual exercise. Standing on the Word of God causes a shaking in the spiritual realm on your behalf, because God backs His Word and watches to perform it.
Everyone desires happiness, and countless ways have been proposed to help you achieve it. Whats commonly overlooked is that happiness is our natural state, and therefore must be allowed, rather than achieved. The way to allow happiness in your life is to awaken to the truth that everyone has an ego; that ego blocks our happiness, just as clouds block the sun from shining through. The secret to finding happiness is not something you do; you need only become aware of the presence of ego in your life. This requires learning what ego is, where it comes from, where it hides, how it presents itself, and how to recognize it when you find it. Your awareness of ego causes it to gradually dissipate. The more conscious you become of it, the more the light of happiness shines within you. This light is the light of Spirit. Awakening to the presence of ego inside you is the sure path to grow beyond your ego and to live a spiritual life, the gifts of which are happiness, joy, and peace of mind. Growing beyond ones ego to achieve happiness is a journey, not a one-time event. Lessons for Living Beyond the Ego is a collection of fifty-two lessons to help you stay on the path of your journey into happiness. It can be read either as a follow up to Beyond the Egoa previous book by David Mutchleror as an introduction to it.
