‘Understand your mind and you understand life.’ Wisdom lies in reaching this state of maturity, where we accept life as it is, without a single word of complaint, whether our problems stem at the physical or mental levels. Conscious Living is a compilation of various articles that inspire us to discover the joy of life, that expresses itself as our thoughts, emotions, feelings and intelligence. However, the desire to live as the limited self is the nature of the ignorant while the pursuit to discover the eternal Self is the nature of the wise.’
This book deals with question like –
What is death?
How to share and care?
How to accept life as it is?
How to gain control of mind?
How to lead a life of inspiration?
How to develop a vision in our life?
How to evolve from ordinary to extraordinary?
The author, Swami Ishwarananda is a disciple of Swami Chinmayananda. He wrote these thought-provoking articles for the CMW Newsletter published from Piercy, California, USA to inspire the readers to live a healthy, spiritually advanced life. He has a lucid style of writing, supported by anecdotes, quotes and messages from various religions of the world. His words are very convincing, apt to the well known saying –‘Wisdom is to be caught, not taught!’
Living becomes meaningful when it is consciously invested with understanding. Many of us, complete with theoretical knowledge, go through the motions of like mechanical toys, but when we accosted with real-life problems or situations, we come to a stand still. We do not know how to proceed and complete the journey.
In “Conscious Living,” Swami Ishwarananda uses some of Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda’s saying as take-off points, guiding the reader through reflections on religion and metaphysics, life and death, thought and mind, love and caring, often using perspicacious stories to illustrate a point. At the end of it, we hope the reader will find his own way to the fulfillment of conscious living.
