Spiritual and Self Help

//Spiritual and Self Help
  • A real treasure chest of a book - one to dip into for wisdom from across the ages, from all ages and professions, from literary figures to world leaders.  There really is something for every human condition and for everyone: Mark Twain...I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened. Or perhaps Honoré de Balzac: There is no such thing as a great talent without great will-power. And here's John Wesley in a wry moment: Some people have just enough religion to make them uncomfortable. Abraham Lincoln knew what he was talking about when he said: Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. And Abigail Van Buren, famous agony aunt, observed: People who fight fire with fire, usually end up with ashes.

  • Wayne Dyer offers compelling testimony on the power of love, harmony, and service. When confronted with a problem, be it ill health, financial worries, or relationship difficulties, we often depend on intellect to solve it. In this radical book, Dyer shows us that there is an omnipotent spiritual force at our fingertips that contains the solution to our problems. The first part of the book provides the essential foundation for spiritual problem solving, drawing from the wisdom of Patanjali, a Yogi mystic; the second half is organised around the prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi, whose legacy is one of love, harmony, and service. Each chapter contains specific practical applications for applying the teachings of these wise men to everyday problems, including affirmations, writing exercises, and guided meditations.
