The focus of this book, Living Beyond Yourself is a self motivated book, as it relates to Self Esteem, and Self Motivation. It's a book that let the readers discover a new look about themselves, different from how the World sees them. Many people put their pictures on Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, Instagram etc: because they are looking for comments, and likes, while some refused to show their pictures, because they think less of themselves. However, it's not about what people think, or the many likes. It's about what the person think of himself, or herself. Imagine someone received one thousand likes, yet the person refused to love himself! What difference would he made? This book was written with the tools, and for you to see yourself for who yo u really are. A book about self confidence, self control, and to take your mind to another level of thinking. It is to remind you that you were fearfully, wonderfully, and perfectly created. This means, there's no mistake about the person you really are. The world's imagination is for you to see yourself different. It's the World desire to label you, and to price you, then change your value. However, Living Beyond Yourself is to live beyond how the World sees you. Because you were perfectly created, no one can have your shape, or your finger print. No one can have your D.N.A. The reason so is, you are different. This also means: you are different to make a difference. You might cause a problem to some people. If they cannot solve you, surely, you will be their problem solver. You were born to be their problem solver. There's a different you in the person that you are. You have the power from within to discover the new you. After reading this book, you will begin to have a new look f rom the inside out. This is my sixth book, and a "Must Read".

Learn how to overcome distraction in meditation practice and develop clarity in your relationships, work, and activities with this new guide from a beloved meditation teacher. The mind can be a potent tool, used to guide extraordinary achievements, inspire good works, and incline your spiritual path toward peace and awakening. But the mind can also produce thoughts that lead to suffering. For many people, thoughts run rampant and seem to oppress or control their lives. Even the Buddha tells us that before his enlightenment, he sometimes found his mind preoccupied by thoughts connected with sensual desire, ill will, and harm. But he figured out how to respond to thoughts skillfully and developed a step-by-step approach to calm the restless mind. Now, Insight Meditation teacher Shaila Catherine offers an accessible approach to training the mind that is guided by the Buddha’s pragmatic instructions on removing distracting thoughts. Drawing on two scriptures in the Middle Length Discourses of the Buddha, Shaila shows you how to overcome habitual modes of thinking, develop deeper concentration, and discover the insights into emptiness that are vital for a liberating spiritual path. Following the Buddha’s pragmatic approach, Shaila guides you through five steps for overcoming distraction and focusing the mind: 1. Replace unwholesome thoughts with wholesome thoughts. For example, if you find yourself thinking thoughts of ill will toward a person, try thinking instead of their good qualities as an antidote. 2. Examine the dangers of distracting thoughts. Weigh the costs of allowing thoughts of ill will, lust, greed, and so forth to obsess your mind. The costs of dwelling on distracting thoughts nearly always outweigh any supposed benefits. 3. Avoid it, ignore it, forget it. Develop the skill to turn your attention away from habitual distractions. Remove the fuel and let the fires of distraction die out. 4. Investigate the causes of distraction. By understanding the conditions that perpetuate habitual thoughts, you can learn to free yourself from those patterns. 5. Apply determination and resolve. Supported by wisdom, you can make a firm decision to stop dwelling on patterns of thought that are not supporting your deepest values and goals in life. Each chapter includes exercises and reflections to help you cultivate the five steps to deeper concentration. You’ll learn about your mind and develop your ability to direct your attention more skillfully in meditation and daily activities. And ultimately, you’ll discover for yourself how these five steps boil down to one key realization: In the moment you recognize that a thought is just a thought, you will find yourself on the path to a life of remarkable freedom.

It is through realizing this non-duality that we can live free from fear. Reason cannot penetrate this mystery. The truth of non-duality is disclosed to the thoroughly serene mind, intent on self-discovery. The practical approach to this enquiry and the methods that lead to fearlessness and fulfilment are the theme of this book by the Warden of Shanti Sadan. Its chapters include several suggestions for meditative practice and goal-directed living that can be taken up by any sincere enquirer.

Everyone desires happiness, and countless ways have been proposed to help you achieve it. Whats commonly overlooked is that happiness is our natural state, and therefore must be allowed, rather than achieved. The way to allow happiness in your life is to awaken to the truth that everyone has an ego; that ego blocks our happiness, just as clouds block the sun from shining through. The secret to finding happiness is not something you do; you need only become aware of the presence of ego in your life. This requires learning what ego is, where it comes from, where it hides, how it presents itself, and how to recognize it when you find it. Your awareness of ego causes it to gradually dissipate. The more conscious you become of it, the more the light of happiness shines within you. This light is the light of Spirit. Awakening to the presence of ego inside you is the sure path to grow beyond your ego and to live a spiritual life, the gifts of which are happiness, joy, and peace of mind. Growing beyond ones ego to achieve happiness is a journey, not a one-time event. Lessons for Living Beyond the Ego is a collection of fifty-two lessons to help you stay on the path of your journey into happiness. It can be read either as a follow up to Beyond the Egoa previous book by David Mutchleror as an introduction to it.
