Five Question to Finding Peace of Mind and Authentic Happiness
Armando S Garcia , author
Can you really find peace of mind in this fast paced, distracting world? Absolutely, because what troubles the mind is not the outside world, but the mind itself. It is the mental grasping of what you want and rejecting what you don't want, especially the rejecting, which causes psychological stress and distress. Heedlessly we chase our hopes and dreams trying to figure out what makes us happy, often seeking distractions to avoid facing what is really troubling us, all the while undermining the peace of mind which brings about true happiness. Driving all this is a fundamental misconception of who we are and what truly makes us whole: we confuse our self-awareness with the Self. Your state of happiness may not be something you regularly dwell on, but everything you do, or decide not to do, always concerns what you perceive will make you happier. Real happiness, however, is not about feeling joyful all the time, not even often. Happiness is an awareness. It comes from a special kind of understanding which we call wisdom. This book is about developing the wisdom which leads to peace of mind and authentic happiness.
