“This is the book where self-help turns into helping the world—and then turns back into helping yourself find a better life. Fascinating and timely!”—Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet What does it take to achieve a successful and satisfying life? Not long ago, the answer seemed as simple as following a straightforward path: college, career, house, marriage, kids, and a secure retirement. Not anymore. Staggering student loan debt, sweeping job shortages, a chronically ailing economy—plus the larger issues of global unrest, poverty, and our imperiled environment—make the search for fulfillment more challenging. And, as Colin Beavan, activist and author of No Impact Man, proclaims, more exciting. In this breakthrough book, Beavan extends a hand to those seeking more meaning and joy in life even as they engage in addressing our various world crises. How to Be Alive nudges the unfulfilled toward creating their own version of the Good Life—a life where feeling good and doing good intersect. He urges readers to reexamine the “standard life approaches” to pretty much everything and to experiment with life choices that are truer to their values, passions, and concerns. How do you stop placing limits on your potential impact? How do you make your choices really matter in everything from your clothing purchases to your career? How do you find the people who will most support you in your quest for a good life? To answer these questions and more, Beavan draws on classic literature and philosophy; surprising new scientific findings; and the uplifting personal stories of real-life “lifequesters”—people who are breaking away from those old broken paths, blazing fresh trails, and reveling in every step along the way. “There is a movement afoot for a better life and Colin Beavan is its prophet, with a new book as powerful as his already classic No Impact Man.”—John de Graaf, coauthor of Affluenza

This set of remarks is based on the philosophy of Buddhism and Existentialism. It discusses how mans perception holds the key to his happiness. Life can be majestic or distraught, it all depends on how one perceives the world. It consists of 120 pages making reference to capitalism, conformity and a means to improve ones life. Self-improvement starts from ones own heart and branches out from there. This is the second edition of these notes. I revised the earlier edition because I was repeating things. I also cut the number of pages down to 120.

A noted spiritual writer seeks answers to life's big questions in the stories of the saints In All Saints---published in 1997 and already a classic of its kind---Robert Ellsberg told the stories of 365 holy people with great vividness and eloquence. In The Saints' Guide to Happiness, Ellsberg looks to the saints to answer the questions: What is happiness, and how might we find it? Countless books answer these questions in terms of personal growth, career success, physical fitness, and the like. The Saints' Guide to Happiness proposes instead that happiness consists in a grasp of the deepest dimension of our humanity, which characterizes holy people past and present. The book offers a series of "lessons" in the life of the spirit: the struggle to feel alive in a frenzied society; the search for meaningful work, real friendship, and enduring love; the encounter with suffering and death; and the yearning to grasp the ultimate significance of our lives. In these "lessons," our guides are the saints: historical figures like Augustine, Francis of Assisi, and Teresa of Avila, and moderns such as Dorothy Day, Flannery O'Connor, and Henri J. Nouwen. In the course of the book the figures familiar from stained-glass windows come to seem exemplars, not just of holy piety but of "life in abundance," the quality in which happiness and holiness converge.

“If you’re alive, there’s a purpose for your life.” Rick Warren Trapped in a life of delusions, failures, losses and frustrations, we tend to become conditioned by what we think, what we feel and, mostly, by what others want us to think and feel. Reality is and has always been an instrument of our soul for the purpose of spiritual development, but by forgetting such fact we tend to be the instrument of that reality. Our inner voice and the accumulation of pain over time, eventually leads us to realize that we’re out of track. No therapy or friend in the entire world can help us go back in track, because each being is unique. The only person that can help us to understand our life’s purpose is one and only ourselves. The problem arises when, after many years of living out of track, we realize that we don’t know who we are any more, what we’ve done wrong, which choices we should take and what we love the most in our life. Somehow, we realize that we’ve lost ourselves due to an intense living under activities that we don’t love but must do in order to maintain what we believe to be a stable life. In order to find back life’s purpose, this book was created and organized in different levels of self-awareness. Through the chapters presented, it’s possible to practice the remembering of past memories and awake our true self. Carefully explained with specific details, the book also intends to allow the understanding of how reality, mind and dream, work together to bring a fulfilling life when we operate under our own destiny. Although most people may confuse destiny with free will, both are one and the same. What makes you happy the most is your destiny. If you change the activities that make you happy all the time and your goals, this means you’re developing as a soul. There are only two ways in life: One leads to prosperity in both spirit and life, what can be measured in financial success as well as happiness; The other leads to frustration, fear, anxiety and death. In fact, it’s well known that most of the deaths occur by the increasing of negative thoughts and emotions, which in their turn affect the health of our body. In knowing this, we also can understand that when we’re fulfilling our destiny in the right way our health improves and our happiness increases.

It doesn’t matter that you’ve lived in shadows, that you’ve slept through years of your life, that you’ve done things you’re ashamed to admit even to yourself. It doesn’t matter that you’re an anxious, depressed, spaghetti-brained mess with a shouty monster brain that keeps you from conforming to society’s definition of normal. Beth McColl has been there – sometimes she still is there – but in this book she shares what’s worked for her and what hasn’t, what’s gotten her into trouble and then back out of it again, and what she wishes she’d known from the start: How to get through a bad day Questions to ask your doctor The truth about medication Ways to practise self-care and mindfulness What to expect from a partner How to forgive your past self, and so much more... How to Come Alive Again is a relatable, honest, at times joyous and above all practical guide for anyone who has a mental illness – or anyone who knows and loves someone who does. It’s the basics for mending your life, accepting yourself, changing what doesn’t work, killing the worst of it and learning to live again.
