The Problem
It seems the greatest problem in many people’s lives is a deep
sense of frustration and hopelessness. In Western society almost
everyone seems to be suffering from this in some way. Some people
experience it frequently, others only occasionally. Those who don't
seem to experience it at all are often just bottling it up, refusing to
accept their inner-most feelings. The root cause of all this depression
is that our lives seem to lack true purpose. We have a deep inner
knowing that there is more to life than what most of us are
experiencing. But the mystical, elusive Meaning of Life appears as a
far distant concept. We feel totally hopeless to find it. So we live our
lives with that vague but very real sense of discontent ever-present.
We try to cover it up with dreams of material success, but we
know deep inside that no level of attainment can bring lasting
happiness. We look at the rich and famous, the wealthy and
successful, and see that most often even they are not satisfied. But
we try to fool ourselves - "If I was them, I would be different, I would
be totally happy." Even the people who seem to be looking after
themselves, who live simply and are generally happy and enjoying
life, often still have the same inner feeling of emptiness.
Most often we surround ourselves with as many luxuries as we
can afford to distract us from our inner emptiness. But every time we
get something new, the satisfaction is only temporary and we move
our hope for happiness onto some future event. And we also know
that when we die, we won't take those luxuries with us.

Releasing Negativity
If you have trouble releasing negative thoughts in daily life, the
next time they occur try turning your attention to your breathing. Be
aware of the breath going in and out. Listen to the sound of it. This
will usually allow the negativity to be released. If the negativity
returns, repeatedly return yourself to your breath awareness. This
will lead to inner peace at times that would otherwise disturb you
greatly. Regular practice of breath awareness will bring immediate
detachment from disharmony.
Love
Most spiritual traditions have taught the importance of Love. It
has not been discussed in this book because spiritual Love cannot be
learnt, it can only be experienced. Spiritual Love cannot be taught,
but through Right Thinking & Right Action you will automatically
release the disharmony and negativity that is stopping you from
naturally experiencing Love in every moment. Love is a natural byproduct of living in harmony.
Books
For further introduction into spirituality, try reading
"Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramahansa Yogananda, "Out on a
Limb" by Shirley MacLaine, and "A Search in Secret India" by Dr Paul
Brunton. For more advanced readers we recommend "Hands of
Light" by Barbara Brennan, "Dancing in the Light" by Shirley
MacLaine, and "A Course in Miracles". All these books are good for
increasing your understanding of spirituality, and describe interesting
personal experiences, but they are completely unnecessary because
this book already contains all the practical
