Beyond Happiness PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Beyond Happiness free pdf Many books have been published in recent years on happiness. Zen teacher Ezra Bayda believes that the happiness "boom" has been largely a bust for readers. Why? Because it's precisely the pursuit of happiness that keeps us trapped in cycles of dissatisfaction and suffering.
In "Beyond Happiness," Bayda draws on Zen teachings to question our conventional notions about happiness. Most of us seek happiness in things that are external to us. We imagine that getting more money, a better relationship, or going on a nice vacation will finally make us happy. But he shows us that the deepest and most lasting kind of happiness does not rely on external circumstances at all. It's deeper than any kind of passing emotional state or circumstance, and beyond any idea we have about it.
He offers Zen insights and practices to help readers to tap into the true sources of lasting happiness: mindfulness, compassion, gratitude, and generosity. "Beyond Happiness" is loaded with simple meditation and mindfulness practices that will help readers to put these insights into action in their daily lives. Practices include: basic sitting meditation, gratitude practice, loving-kindness practice, and the Three Questions ("Am I happy right now? What blocks happiness? Can I surrender to what is?").
