How to Find Inner Peace
A Handbook for People of All Faiths and Non-Believers
If you are reading these words, it means that you either realize you’re not at peace and want to be, or the sound of the word drew you … it’s something you haven’t really thought about, but it resonates and you want it in your life.
The universal truth is that we all suffer. Whether rich or poor, young or old, regardless of gender or any other factor … we all suffer psychically.
Why? Because we are prisoners of our ego-mind. We are controlled by the feelings and perceptions … the emotions, judgments, cravings, and attachments … that are the ego-mind’s reactions to our life experiences. It is these feelings that
are actually the cause of our suffering. But we nevertheless identify with them; we’ve lost connection with our true self, our heart. If we were only able to reconnect with our heart, we would be able to free ourselves from the control of our ego-mind and experience the inner peace and happiness that is our birthright.
We cannot change the world around us. It is what it is. But we can change how we relate to ourselves and that world. And by doing so, we can control whether we suffer or experience peace.
This is not some new age theory. These truths have been taught for thousands of years by the mystical traditions of all three Abrahamic faiths … Christian Gnosticism, Kabbalah, and Sufism … as well as Buddhism.
Helping people of all faiths as well as non-believers learn these truths and walk this challenging path is the purpose of How to Find Inner Peace. Why will this book help people when others haven’t? It is reality-based; it grows out of the turmoil of life. And it lays out a practical, step-by-step approach to finding inner peace. If you want inner peace, believe it or not the choice is yours.
The book is available in both softcover - $12.95, and eBook - $9.99 formats.
