about this item

A call to action to live a life full of goodness and purpose from one of TarcherPerigee's most talented spiritual voicesHuman beings often struggle to find a life filled with passion, happiness...and just plain goodness. This struggle drives many to depression, addictive tendencies, or even self-destruction. Author and New Thought minister Edward Viljoen argues that the struggle need not be an arduous or painful one -- that through garden-variety acts of kindness, faith, and compassion we can create beautiful lives. Using stories, personal examples, tips, and exercises, this book will guide the reader to realize that wherever they are, they can create meaning and beauty in their life and in the world. Viljoen provides deep insights into how we can live happier lives including:* How life is a paradox of both wholeness and brokenness* How caring about the ordinary things causes extraordinary life experiences* How society's messages about perfection distract us from our ordinary goodness* How faith is a muscle that must be exercised* How in moments of exasperation we sometimes lose our composure, and how that is nothing to be ashamed about* How ordinary goodness leads to a redefining of DivinityPeople spend much of their lives trying to be fulfilled and happy. What this book shows is that this is attainable -- nothing extraordinary required.
