In this New York Times bestseller, Janice Kaplan spends a year living gratefully and transforms her marriage, family life, work and health. Her pioneering reseach was praised in People and Vanity Fair and hailed on TV shows including Today, The O'Reilly Factor, and CBS's The Talk. On New Year's Eve, journalist and former Parade Editor-in-Chief Janice Kaplan makes a promise to be grateful and look on the bright side of whatever happens. She realizes that how she feels over the next months will have less to do with the events that occur than her own attitude and perspective. Getting advice at every turn from psychologists, academics, doctors, and philosophers, she brings readers on a smart and witty journey to discover the value of appreciating what you have. Relying on both amusing personal experiences and extensive research, Kaplan explores how gratitude can transform every aspect of life including marriage and friendship, money and ambition, and health and fitness. She learns how appreciating your spouse changes the neurons of your brain and why saying thanks helps CEOs succeed. Through extensive interviews with experts and lively conversations with real people including celebrities like Matt Damon, Daniel Craig, and Jerry Seinfeld, Kaplan discovers the role of gratitude in everything from our sense of fulfillment to our children's happiness. With warmth, humor, and appealing insight, Janice's journey will empower readers to think positively and start living their own best year ever.

Description:

What's your pain? What's holding you back? What's your cycle of abuse? My pain was my child abuse, and the inability to forgive my abusers. This resulted in a cycle of self-abuse which turned me into a sex addict and a broken man. But, this book isn't about me, it's about you. What do you want? My wish is that you can use my trauma and journey of forgiveness to empower you, to help forgive the people who've hurt you. But most importantly, learn how to forgive yourself and let go of the years of guilt you might have carried. For years I believed I was paying for the sins of a past life time. Until I learnt to love my abusers and forgive them, I had no idea who I was and the beauty I hold on the inside. How do I hope this book will help you? Easy, I hope it gives you as much peace in reading as it gave me writing. Final note - we all go through traumas that are unique to us, from child abuse, to being cheated on, or being heartbroken from the loss of a loved one. The pain is still real, everyone has different coping mechanisms. Your pain might seem trivial those around you, but you are the only one that knows how much it really hurts, no one should judge you or compare the pain, as the pain is unique as you are. So who is this book for? This book is for anyone who wants to forgive. It's for anyone who wants to understand their life. Anyone who wants to improve their life. But more importantly, this book will help you understand anyone who needs the above to forgive, or understand this life, or improve it. The unique approach of the text allows a contemporary understanding of the secrets of forgiveness, and why they're so important. Written in the first person, it tracks the conversation between the writer and a greater power which leads him firstly to understand why he suffered abused as a child, and finally why it's so important to forgive. His personal struggle demonstrates the difficulties typically encountered on the path to forgiveness. Here are some of the important points for the reader: normal font is used to indicate the writer is speaking, and bold text for the greater power. On the topic of sin Sin is doing all the things we dream of doing, but we are too scared of doing because we don't want to go to hell. Yes, if you "sin" you will end up in hell, so I give you the option of free will to do what you want to do, and then slap you for doing it. Was that sarcasm? Yes it was. I am the creator of light and the bringer of love. Does punishing you for free will sound loving to you? Let's just rearrange how you think about sin. At the time of the sin you enjoy the sin, then you feel guilty about the sin On the topic of cheating Once the baby is born the mother starts to give more love to the child than her partner/husband/father of the child. The father, due to lack of love, will start looking elsewhere to find it. I have seen partners that have cheated whilst their partners were pregnant. The above still applies, but the process has speeded up. The husband/boyfriend stops feeling the love from his wife/girlfriend. As she starts giving the unborn baby more love, he feels neglected. On the topic of self-worth No, son, there is a difference between your self-worth being nothing and being worthless.

Yongey Mingyur is one of the most celebrated among the new generation of Tibetan meditation masters, whose teachings have touched people of all faiths around the world. His first book, The Joy of Living, was a New York Times bestseller hailed as “compelling, readable, and informed” (Buddhadharma) and praised by Richard Gere, Lou Reed, and Julian Schnabel for its clarity, wit, and unique insight into the relationship between science and Buddhism.His new book, Joyful Wisdom, addresses the timely and timeless problem of anxiety in our everyday lives. “From the 2,500-year-old perspective of Buddhism,” Yongey Mingyur writes, “every chapter in human history could be described as an ‘age of anxiety.’ The anxiety we feel now has been part of the human condition for centuries.” So what do we do? Escape or succumb? Both routes inevitably lead to more complications and problems in our lives. “Buddhism,” he says, “offers a third option. We can look directly at the disturbing emotions and other problems we experience in our lives as stepping-stones to freedom. Instead of rejecting them or surrendering to them, we can befriend them, working through them to reach an enduring authentic experience of our inherent wisdom, confidence, clarity, and joy.”Divided into three parts like a traditional Buddhist text, Joyful Wisdom identifies the sources of our unease, describes methods of meditation that enable us to transform our experience into deeper insight, and applies these methods to common emotional, physical, and personal problems. The result is a work at once wise, anecdotal, funny, informed, and graced with the author’s irresistible charm.

Description:

"The idea of putting Magisterial teaching in a beautiful display case while separating it from pastoral practice, which then could evolve along with circumstances, fashions, and passions, is a sort of heresy, a dangerous schizophrenic pathology. I therefore solemnly state that the Church in Africa is staunchly opposed to any rebellion against the teaching of Jesus and of the Magisterium... The Church of Africa is committed in the name of the Lord Jesus to keeping unchanged the teaching of God and of the Church." -- Robert Cardinal Sarah In this fascinating autobiographical interview, one of the most prominent and outspoken Catholic Cardinals gives witness to his Christian faith and comments on many current controversial issues. The mission of the Church, the joy of the gospel, the "heresy of activism", and the definition of marriage are among the topics he discusses with wisdom and eloquence. Robert Cardinal Sarah grew up in Guinea, West Africa. Inspired by the missionary priests who made great sacrifices to bring the Faith to their remote village, his parents became Catholics. Robert discerned a call to the priesthood and entered the seminary at a young age, but due to the oppression of the Church by the government of Guinea, he continued his education outside of his homeland. He studied in France and nearby Senegal. Later he obtained a licentiate in theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, followed by a licentiate in Sacred Scripture at the Studium Biblicum Franciscanum of Jerusalem. At the age of thirty-four he became the youngest Bishop in the Catholic Church when John Paul II appointed him the Archbishop of Conakry, Guinea, in 1979. His predecessor had been imprisoned by the Communist government for several years, and when Archbishop Sarah was targeted for assassination John Paul II called him to Rome to be Secretary of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples. In 2010 Pope Benedict XVI named him Cardinal and appointed him Prefect of the Pontifical Council Cor Unum. Pope Francis made him Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments in 2014.
