ABOUT THE BOOK
Money, power and sex dominate the world through social media and a stubborn economic system that has little feelings for humanity. In this environment we process about 84 000 thoughts per day. This presents a serious challenge in trying to obtain peace of mind. We continue with the chatter and the mindlessness in life until we realize that authentic joy is missing in our lives. One of the ways of achieving this authentic joy is through trying to understand the mind and creating the conditions for happiness. Happiness also requires some insight since we must accept that life has both pain and pleasure. We have to embrace both pleasure and pain whilst we occupy our space as physical beings in the universe. However, I point out in this book that the struggle for happiness and peace lies in understanding the mind, both the physical and spiritual component as well as memory. An attempt is made in this book to understand what is realistic when defining happiness and some practical solutions for peace are suggested.
