HOW TO BE HAPPY WITHOUT REALLY TRYING Wikipedia says happiness is a state of mind or feeling characterized by contentment, love, satisfaction, pleasure, or joy. Focus on the experiences of contentment, love and joy. Day to day, how often do you actually experience these? I would guess t very often, and for many of us, hardly at all. Why t? If we put our faith in things to make us happy, we kw that once we get what we thought we wanted, we just start looking for something else. Why do we keep flogging the dead horses of consumption and status? Aristotle believed that we already have everything we need for happiness and joy to permeate our lives, and it's t out there - it lies within us. This book shows you how that inner happiness can infuse your whole life. If you want further information about the book or the author visit: www.gavinsinclair.net
. . . . . . All my life I have been afflicted with the belief that I was born to make an impact on the world, with no evidence to support this conviction. Talk about ego. Now it's getting a bit late. I was bullied in primary school and was extremely socially incompetent. Against this I was a brilliant student, which was no compensation. As an adult I had many experiences which suggested I was special, but fear and indecision stopped me from succeeding in any of the green pastures into which I was given a dream opening. At 23 I started university studies as a mature age student, and was then an academic psychologist for 11 years. When this ended I became an organisational psychologist in my own practice until a few years ago, when I was forced to conclude that a practice which had limped along for 35 years had ground to a virtual halt. I have done semi-skilled odd jobs for the past seven or eight years, during which time I wrote Become happy, Stay happy and Yours fatally, Profitism. On the way through to the present, two events changed my life and made it worth living. In 1974 I met my now wife Wendy (Lakshmi) and in 1988 met my Guru, Gurumayi Chidvilasananda. What happens now is up to this book and its companion title, Yours fatally, Profitism. And God.
