Freedom in Every Moment: Transcending the Struggles of Daily Life by Vincent J. Morello,Ph.D.
About The Book:
'Freedom In Every Moment:Transcending the Struggles of Daily Life' provides a succinct program of 21 spiritual lessons from early to more advanced stages of spiritual development. Each lesson is rooted in a teaching from an Eastern or Western spiritual tradition, which we believe gives this volume broad appeal. Readers learn how to overcome negative thinking and mood states, how to deal with fears and doubts, what their true identity is, and how to find contentment. The lessons contain timeless teachings and exercises to bring the teachings to life on a daily basis.
What is different about this book from other self-help books? First, it is the topics we have selected, which strike at the heart of the daily struggles of those who seek to uplift their mental and emotional states: the nature of the mind, overcoming fear, our purpose in life, and uniting with Higher Consciousness. Second, it is the depth of explanation and information we provide from teachers such as – Lao Tzu, St. Francis, Albert Einstein, among others – and the applicability of the teachings for daily life. Third, it is the types of activities we incorporate, which can make the teachings come alive in minutes per day. Fourth, this book presents a PROGRAM of study; it is not simply a book offering a different teaching each day. Readers who apply the program are expected to notice concrete changes in reducing stress and uplifting their emotional states. Finally, we have synthesized both spiritual and psychological wisdom in a readily understandable format.
Freedom in Every Moment is targeted to an audience that includes spiritual seekers, psychotherapy and addictions clients, and the general public. The reader is invited to study a different lesson each day, week, or month. We envision the possibility of a companion workbook, which may be well-suited for persons in addictions recovery centers, for example.
