An existential conundrum: "I've done everything 'right,' so why am I so unhappy" This question rather than being seen as a dead end, leading to spinning in confusion, frustration, and ultimate resignation, is according to authors McKay, ÓLaoire and Metzner the essential/pivotal question to ask. This question will force you to stop looking everywhere else for answers and instead to begin to look within. Your own life experiences and choices (not someone else's) become your very rich research material. The authors offer thoughts on what constitutes true happiness, on the need to align our values with our ideals and suggest that fulfilling our purpose is far greater than insuring personal happiness, but is, in fact, of global, even cosmic significance. Along with clear and inspiring prose, the authors offer "exercises" to help each reader effectively analyze their experiences and accurately identify the patterns therein. Given the increased complexity of the world in which we find ourselves, and the choices we see before us as individuals and as a planet, this book could not have come at a better time to help us outfit ourselves for the evolution to come.
