THE MANUAL FOR LIVING is the first and best primer for living the best possible life -- as helpful in the twenty-first century as it was in the first. Epictetus's teachings rank among the greatest wisdom texts of human civilization. Epictetus taught that philosophy is a way of life and not just a theoretical discipline. To Epictetus, all external events are beyond our control; we should accept calmly and dispassionately whatever happens. However, individuals are responsible for their own actions, which they can examine and control through rigorous self-discipline. By putting into practice the ninety-three wise instructions that make up The Art of Living, readers learn to successfully meet the challenges of everyday life.

In The Passionate Mind, Joel Kramer asserts that "what we believe determines much of what we think and do: the way we move, the way we respond to people, how we think of ourselves, how we see the world in general." His basic message, stated in short, clear prose, is that passion is to be found only in the present moment, and mainly through becoming aware of the thoughts flowing through our minds, and through the primal process of observing our thoughts, they begin to self-correct. From the author of The Guru Papers, The Passionate Mind is a wonderful journey for anyone seeking to discover how to look at oneself.

Countless readers have found peace of mind and gathered inner strength from savoring this collection of Epictetus' sayings. Unlike many ephemeral and faddish dispensations of wisdom, Epictetus' philosophy lacks nothing in depth and complexity. It has been a staple of Western education for centuries, and has exercised a formative influence over such diverse figures as the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, the Christian thinker Augustine, the mathematician-philosopher Blaise Pascal, and the contemporary American novelist Tom Wolfe. Nearly two millennia after it was written, "Encheiridion: The Manual for Living" continues to engage and inspire readers today.

Here is the revealing underground classic, a work that stands beside the "Seth" books as a delightful and invaluable guide to our inner spirit and our outer world. Emmanuel speaks to us through Pat Rodegast and shares his wisdom and insights on all aspects of life. Beautifully written and illustrated, Emmanuel's Book I is to be treasured, enjoyed and passed on to a friend. Emmanuel says: "The gifts I wish to give you are my deepest love, the safety of truth, the wisdom of the universe and the reality of God . . . . The issue of whether there is a Greater Reality or not, for me at least, has been settled. I know that there is. So I will speak to you from the knowing that I possess." Ram Dass, in the introduction, says: "Being with Emmanuel one comes to appreciate the vast evolutionary context in which our lives are being lived . . . And at each moment we are at just the right place in the journey. As Emmanuel points out, 'Who you are is a necessary step to being who you will be.'" From the Trade Paperback edition.

I’d like to know who in the world hasn’t made more than one mistake a day. The answer is obvious, but that’s not really the problem. It’s that we don’t know what we should do with the negative energy—by the way very toxic—that inevitably stays inside us when we don’t properly handle our emotions and decisions about our mistakes. This powerful manual doesn’t assume that we’re saints, or much less, that we’re perfect. What it seeks to show us is how we can free ourselves from the damage and distress associated with the errors that we commit, always with the aim of being able to feel better, grow, gain new skills, develop ourselves more fully, and stay in a process of continual improvement with no need to live as victims of these errors. As you read this manual, you will discover, among many other things, the damage done to human beings by the formidable React Without Thinking (RWT) virus and you’ll also find out what to do to control it. Likewise, you will understand what guilt really is and how to transform the negative energy that inevitably accompanies it into positive energy. Errors are, perhaps, our best allies, but regrettably, there are very few people who are fortunate enough to see them this way.

Epictetus was a philosopher, a prominent figure of the Roman stoicism. A real name of this person was unknown because Epictetus was a nickname, translated as bought, that showed his status. Epictetus, while being a slave, was owned by one of the Nero's bodyguards and was brought to Rome with such a status. He was born in Phrygia (Minor Asia). Later, the owner granted him freedom.When he was a slave, Epictetus together with his master went to lectures by Musonius Rufus, a representative of the stoicism. At that time this philosophical trend was very popular, and educated Romans considered it a sign of good manners to go to such lectures. Epictetus highly respected Musonius Rufus and joined himself this flow.
