CARLSON Richard  Stop Thinking & Start Living Common-sense strategies for discovering lifelong happiness
NEW $15 A/B Element 2003 soft cover, 186pp. Revolutionary in its simplicity and accessible to all, this bestselling book offers commonsense methods that allow you to let go of depression and tap into natural joy. In this indispensable handbook, Richard Carlson demonstrates how we can change everything in our lives -- earn more money, meet new friends, get a new job -- yet still feel dissatisfied. Happiness, he says, is not 'out there' but within, a state of mind that is independent of circumstance: 'If you begin to see that your thoughts are not the real thing -- they're just thoughts and as thoughts they can't hurt you -- your entire life will begin to change today.' Carlson's step-by-step guide explains: * How your thoughts determine how you feel. * Why thinking about problems only makes them worse. * That thoughts come and go -- you are free to choose at any moment which to hold on to and which to let go. * Straightforward methods for conquering depression. * How to dismiss negative thoughts and discover inner contentment. * How to overcome lifelong pessimism and start really living.

The Nine Spiritual Principles for getting everything you want.
cover image of Manifest Your Destiny; The Nine Spiritual Principles for getting everything you want, for sale in New Zealand

Are the decisions and actions in your life controlled by your ego? Do you have any ever-present need to defend yourself?
Do you inherently trust yourself and your decisions? Are you weighed down with troubles or unresolved issues in your life?
Do you feel out of touch with your environment? Are your days more often out of sync than in?
Do you have limits in your life that prevent you from making changes or achieving your highest goals?
Do you love what you do, and do what you love in life? Are you constrained by feelings or unworthiness?
Is your day filled with high energy and the feeling that "everything is going my way"? Or do you experience frustration or anger?
How would your life change after learning to attract what you want -peace or love, job advancement or monetary fortune?
Do you believe that the universe operates randomly? Are you impatient waiting for good things to happen?
Do you complain, find fault, or take for granted more often that you appreciate your life?
Dyer's Nine Principles address these issues.

Once he accepts this disappointment, he will be able to stop depending on the therapist, the guru who turns out to be just another struggling human being. Using the myths of Gilgamesh, Siddhartha, The Wife of Bath, Don Quixote. . . the works of Buber, Ginsberg, Shakespeare, Kafka, Nin, Dante and Jung . . a brilliant psychotherapist, guru and pilgrim share- the epic tales and intimate revelations that help to shape Everymans journey through life. ISBN 0553257439 'The Inevitable Disruption of Easy Times' - We all want to hold on to the happy times in our lives and rush through- or avoid altogether- the troubled times. Yet we can't stop or control life's changes. What we can do is alter our vision of changing times so that we fully experience pleasure and personal growth and don't subject ourselves to needless suffering. Now Sheldon Kopp takes us toward a deeper understanding of life's cycles of constancy and change. In HERE I AM, WASNT I! he shows us the Oriental image of time as a broken circle, a turning wheel of happiness and sorrow He retells wonderful ancient stories of the Hindu gods Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva to give us a new model for coping with the crises of our life. And, drawing on poignant, dramatic experiences from his own life and that of his psychotherapy patients, he guides us on a different path to self-development...a way that allows us to experience the outrageous, the hurtful and the forbidden as part of life's unity, to find in them expanded options for transformation and renewal in our journey to higher consciousness and genuine fulfillment.
