Do you want to help someone who is depressed?
Is there a key to unlocking happiness?
Do you sometimes feel used or taken for granted in your relationships?
How do you deal with anger, jealousy, resentment, or sadness?
Can anyone change the destined course of their life?
What is the one proven antidote to addictive habits?
What is the meaning of life?
Is it possible to experience the fifth dimension?
Dr Yusuf Merchant, or Doc as he is widely called, has been schooled by adversity from his childhood. He has lost friends and loved ones to dark addictions, endured heart-wrenching betrayal, lived on the streets, and struggled with the trauma of abandonment and the absence of hope.
But he hit back against every crisis—and so can you.
In this book, the master of mindfulness offers forty-two different ways to live a peaceful and fulfilling life. He punches negativity in the face and uses visualisation techniques to achieve his dreams. Bringing together scientific theories on the functioning of the brain and how it alters under stress, depression and addiction as well as existential questions on karma and the meaning of life, he concludes that it is self-belief along with integrity of character that offers a short-cut to happiness.
If you want to lead a more successful and spiritual life, or if you want to take control of your destiny, the answers lie within these pages.
