Nearly every choice we make and action we take, from adolescence to death, is driven by a single, all-consuming quest: to live a good life. Problem is, there's no clear, practical road map to get there. No single collection of proven strategies that don't require you to buy into a particular doctrine, dogma, faith, or belief in order for you to get the proverbial keys to the good-life castle. At the same time, a mountain of misinformation distracts and deludes millions into actions and paths destined to fail, then lays blame when the “absolute truths” offered yield nothing more than absolute misery. How to Live a Good Life is your antidote: a practical and provocative modern-day manual for the pursuit of an extraordinary life. No need for blind faith or surrender of intelligence; everything you'll discover is immediately actionable and subject to validation through your own experience. You will discover 12 elements, drawn from the intersection of science, spirituality, and the author's years-long global quest to interview and learn at the feet of masters from nearly every tradition and walk of life. You will: • Explore a side of happiness that will not only lead to more joy but also awaken you to forgiveness. • Learn how to cultivate a fierce sense of meaning and purpose in all you do. • Discover the unlikely marriage between gratitude and desire and the futility of the near delusional optimism that infects so much of today's personal-growth landscape. • Revel in the power of belonging and learn how to cultivate it. • Open to both the responsibility and the gift of freedom, and the transformative power of compassion. • Understand how to stop living a stress-addled, checked-out, punch-list life and revel in the grace and gift of present awareness. • Discover how to reclaim your sleep, movement, and nutrition, and seed a wellspring of health and vitality. Though respectful of tradition, spirituality, and faith, there will be no sacred cows. Long-held myths, often taught as truths, will nonetheless end up busted. Ideas you've held dear will be challenged, then replaced with a new set of guidelines that will, maybe for the first time, unlock a future you've sensed was always there but until now has felt perpetually just beyond reach.

The secret to happiness, longevity, and living on is through mentoring the next generation In How to Live Forever, Encore.org founder and CEO Marc Freedman tells the story of his thirty-year quest to answer some of contemporary life's most urgent questions: With so many living so much longer, what is the meaning of the increasing years beyond 50? How can a society with more older people than younger ones thrive? How do we find happiness when we know life is long and time is short? In a poignant book that defies categorization, Freedman finds insights by exploring purpose and generativity, digging into the drive for longevity and the perils of age segregation, and talking to social innovators across the globe bringing the generations together for mutual benefit. He finds wisdom in stories from young and old, featuring ordinary people and icons like jazz great Clark Terry and basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. But the answers also come from stories of Freedman's own mentors-a sawmill worker turned surrogate grandparent, a university administrator who served as Einstein's driver, a cabinet secretary who won the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and the gym teacher who was Freedman's father. How to Live Forever is a deeply personal call to find fulfillment and happiness in our longer lives by connecting with the next generation and forging a legacy of love that lives beyond us.

The purpose of this book is to indicate in a clear, concise way "the natural principles governing the relation between the creative action of all thought-power and material things," i.e., circumstances and conditions. If these few simple principles are carefully studied, and mastered to your satisfaction, and then put into practical, hourly application, the reader will find very soon that it is possible for man to make conscious contact with the Almighty, Ever Present, Never-Failing God; and this just naturally means individual freedom, freedom from every form of limitation and bondage of any nature.

Andrew's day-to-day is a little grim, searching for next of kin for those who die alone. Thankfully, he has a loving family waiting for him when he gets home, to help wash the day's cares away. At least, that's what his coworkers believe. Andrew didn't mean for the misunderstanding to happen, yet he's become trapped in his own white lie. The fantasy of his wife and two kids has become a pleasant escape from his lonely one bedroom with only his Ella Fitzgerald records for company. But when new employee Peggy breezes into his life like a breath of fresh air, Andrew is shaken out of his routine. She doesn't notice the wall he's been safely hiding behind and their friendship promises to break it down. Andrew must choose: Does he tell the truth and start really living his life, but risk losing his friendship with Peggy? Or will he stay safe and alone, behind the façade? How Not to Die Alone is about the importance of taking a chance in those moments when we have the most to lose. Sharp and funny, warm and real, it's the kind of big-hearted story we all need.

This pocket-sized book, originally published in Russian in 1904, is a short but comprehensive work offering guidance to the Christian on how to conduct himself through the course of the day. In a eminently straightforward manner the author describes how to conduct oneself in the morning, in relation to God, in common situations of life, in daily work, during meals, during the afternoon rest, in the evening, before sleep, and during sleeplessness. He concludes with a consideration of prayer and guidance and on how to spend Sundays. A biography of the author, Metropolitan Gregory (Postnikov) of St. Petersburg (1784-1860), concludes the work.

The Way to Live

"Some trainers recommend to their pupils for the training of all muscle groups one and the same (light) weight and believe they are able to obtain the same effect by frequent repetitions. My experience has taught me that this is wrong, for the muscles of men or animals who are distinguished for certain feats of endurance are by no means over-developed. A long-distance runner or long-distance cyclist always has comparatively thin legs, as have a racehorse, stag, or greyhound. Nature does not act without aim and purpose. Hence there is a great difference between feats of endurance and feats of strength. One must consider that, although it is quite possible to enlarge muscles by certain light, prolonged exercises, at the same time the development of the sinews may be neglected, and it is the sinews which transport the action of the muscles to the bone xframe. The sinews can only be exercised and strengthened by correspondingly heavy muscle work. Besides, to take a paradoxical example, it is quite impossible to improve strong muscle groups, as, for instance, the hip muscles, with light-weight exercises. A further illustration of the fallacy of attempting to develop the muscles by frequent repetitions with the same light exercises may be found in a comparison with any and every other form of athletics, in which a man would never think of merely repeating his training programme. In order to improve himself either in pace or distance, he must set himself a steady progression of arduous effort." - George Hackenschmidt This is an original version, restored and re-formatted edition of Hackenschmidt's 1908 classic.

Too many of us trade our happiness and well-being for the reliability of a steady paycheck. We work long hours at jobs we dislike or find unfulfilling so that we can buy a lot of stuff that never really seems to satisfy us. And when that paycheck turns out to be not so reliable, we panic. Unemployment terrifies us. Is there any way out of this dilemma? Charles Long reveals one possibility -- the Conserver Lifestyle. Since its first publication over twenty years ago, this book has helped many find the kind of life they've always dreamed of. If you want to leave the rat race behind, have been forced to leave it behind through unemployment, or simply long to take some time off to travel, study, or spend more time with the Conserver Lifestyle option may be just what you need. Charles Long's book offers a valuable combination of inspiration and practical steps to show how you can survive economically without compromising your values or happiness. What is the Conserver Lifestyle? It is about rethinking our consumerist approach to the world and focussing on what we really value in life. Long shows you how to reduce your cash needs to a level you can easily meet with casual income. This is not a dreary tome on budgetting, however -- Long draws on his own family's decade of experience living the Conserver Lifestyle for amusing anecdotes that confirm conserving as a joyful and liberating way to live. The key to security is not in trying to earn even more, but in learning to spend less. The fewer our material needs, the easier they are to satisfy. . . . Security doesn't come from having more but from needing less. -- from the Preface
