Everyone wants to be happy--yet so many people are unhappy today. What are they doing wrong? Clearly, a new approach is needed. Self-help guru Shimoff presents three new ideas and a practical program to change the way readers look at creating happiness in their lives: 1. Happiness is not an emotion, a spike of elation or euphoria, but a lasting, neuro-physiological state of peace and well-being. 2. True happiness is not based on what people do or have--it doesn't depend on external reasons or circumstances. 3. Research indicates that everyone has a happiness set-point. No matter what happens to a person, they will tend to return to a set range of happiness. This book shows how you can actually reprogram your set-point to a higher level.--From publisher description.

Testimonial: Mala and her youthful energy, even though she is a grandmother, is proof that she practices the thoughtful and knowledgeable insights that she has given in her book “Grow Younger”. The book has valuable wisdom and I believe in most of the guidance shared by her. In fact I practice them myself. I think this book is a useful read for everyone, not just those who think they are getting older. - MILKHA SINGH About the book “Age is just a number.” “Sixty is the new forty.” “You are as young as you think.” Everyone has heard these catch-phrases sometime or the other. People utter them to sound cool, and perhaps, younger. But when people say such things, do they know what they really mean? Grow Younger tells the story of one woman who lived and still lives a youthful life. However, this book is not only about her life. It is also about your life; why you should and how you can live a youthful life. Written with an infectious conviction, the book is peppered with practical, sensible and common-sensical advice on how to think, act, feel and be younger. It shows you that counting your blessings matters more than counting the number of candles on your birthday cake.

"Knowledge-First" constitutes what is widely regarded as one of the most significant innovations in contemporary epistemology in the past 25 years. Knowledge-first epistemology is the idea that knowledge per se should not be analysed in terms of its constituent parts (e.g., justification,belief), but rather that these and other notions should be analysed in terms of the concept of knowledge. This volume features a substantive introduction and 13 original essays from leading and up-and-coming philosophers on the topic of knowledge-first philosophy. The contributors' essays range fromfoundational issues to applications of this project to other disciplines including the philosophy of mind, the philosophy of perception, ethics and action theory.Knowledge First: Approaches in Epistemology and Mind aims to provide a relatively open-ended forum for creative and original scholarship with the potential to contribute and advance debates connected with this philosophical project.

If making money, finding a lover, winning an award, or reaching a goal is a good reason to be happy then meditation certainly seems like on good reason, Ironically, happiness through meditation is the best reason of all since it directs us to the source of happiness itself-the inner self. Happiness that has no good reason is the most stable happiness which cannot be destroyed when the outer world cause is removed. It is the author's wish that everyone learns the secret of happiness for the best reason of all.


We must not expect a reason to be happy to be followed by another and then another to keep us content. Happiness is killed by the greed for it. Before we get sad about what we don't have, we should consider what we have.

OneLilo is a book of poems and thoughts covering areas such as the elasticity of mind, self knowledge, the treadmill of our dreams, the entertainment of our miseries, the fake and easy solutions to our problems, the baggage of memories, the giant genetic lottery, religion, the clash between our principles and our comfort, the simplicity of our happy unimportant moments, the fact that it's the last word that kills and that we cannot hate what we are afraid to touch.It also attempts to shed some light into the shapeless friends, the transparent rope we often try to balance on, the discovery of our weaknesses before they discover us and the view that optimists are not people who are optimistic about their future but those who are optimistic about their past.

Ishopanishad: Call for Equality and Equilibrium holds up a venerable scripture and views it from an innovative perspective. While the traditional approach to reading and interpreting this poetic work has focused upon a spiritual exploration of its message, author Ranjan Kumar Singh looks at the Ishopanishad from a secular perspective. By virtue of this original path, the author embraces an understanding of equality, not just predating but also prefiguring the notion of equality that emerged more than two millennia later from the works of Thomas More and Karl Marx and found expression in the systems of socialism and communism. Ishopanishad: Call for Equality and Equilibrium explores the connection between socialism and the Ishopanishad, which sketches, maybe for the first time, the outlines of a benevolent state with a classless society of volunteers administered in accordance with their own moral code rooted in the ideals expressed in the scripture. Whether you have made the Ishopanishad the focus of your reflection for some time or find yourself drawn to this topic for the first time, the present book offers a unique and contemporary journey into the heart of the poetic text that is ancient and yet inspiring as it asks us to work tirelessly throughout the life.

There are things that can be done and are done to life on earth (whether it be human, animal or plant life) which, even if they do not involve or produce any suffering, are still considered morally wrong by a large proportion of the public. Such things include changing the nature of living beings by means of genetic engineering in order to enhance their health, or, more likely with animals and plants, their utility, or impairing their ability to live autonomously, or unduly instrumentalizing them. Yet many scientists are puzzled about the unwillingness of the public to feel much enthusiasm about a technology that, in their view, promises great benefits to humans and does not seem to cause more harm to animals than other practices which most of us do not question at all. In this book Michael Hauskeller takes public fears seriously and offers the idea of 'biological integrity' as a clarifying principle which can then be analyzed to show that seemingly irrational public concerns about genetic engineering are not so irrational after all and that a philosophically sound justification of those concerns can indeed be given.
