“What you put your attention on grows stronger in your life,” according to Janet and Chris Attwood’s new book, The Passion Test: The Effortless Path to Discovering Your Destiny.

It’s a simple, clear way to help you identify what your core passions are. They also offer tips on creating markers, facing fears and channeling attention in the right direction. This amazing book can help you figure out what’s most important for your life.
“Love is a true thing if it is made up of a substance called understanding,” according to Thich Nhat Hahn in True Love. Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk, poet, scholar and peace activist Thich Nhat Hahn knows love can be very confusing. With clarity and simplicity, he explains what love is and how to live and love more deeply. He provides the reader with mantras to help focus the mind in challenging situations, and offers lessons in mindfulness and meditation that anyone, Buddhist or not, can use in their daily lives.
Give to get
“We all have the capacity to do great things…” according to one of the greatest world leaders of all time. In Bill Clinton’s new book, Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World, he helps us understand the true value within ourselves of giving. In the years after his presidency, Clinton has devoted himself to continued service to the world community. In his newest book, he shares with readers many inspiring stories of how individuals (from the private citizen of humble means to superstars like Andre Agassi and Oprah) as well as organizations are changing lives. Whether it’s by donating money, time, skills or ideas, he shows the reader how it’s possible for all of us to give something back and, in so doing, make the world a better place. This is one to read and be inspired by!
Follow your heart
“Create more of what you want…” has always been the mantra of Esther and Jerry Hicks. In their current bestseller, The Astonishing Power of Emotions, the authors explain how to let feelings be your guide. They explain how emotions work as “absolute indicators” that can be used to help align your life with your desires. As part of the Abraham series (which imparts the teachings of a higher power), this book also offers real-world examples of situations in which you can use your emotions to achieve better results. Whether it’s weight loss, dealing with children or coping with a great loss, there’s something of value for everyone here!
“This universe is magnificent. It is also an endless circle. Without the clarity of a pure mind and heart, it is difficult to tell where good days begin and bad days end – and vice versa,” explains Swami Chidvilasananda in the book My Lord Loves A Pure Heart: The Yoga of Divine Virtues. In this insightful collection of lectures, the spiritual leader of Siddha Yoga gives her thoughts on the divine qualities present in each of us. She offers teachings about the virtues we can cultivate in our daily lives that will put us in touch with our own greatness. This is a truly wonderful book that deserves to be read slowly, thoughtfully and with great love.
