This book is the result of a personal quest for happiness. Call it happiness, satori, grace, realization, enlightenment, or anything else. This book will engage you to seek it and support you in doing so. Although some of the content is backed by scientific truths, it is at its core, based on real life experience. This book took 40 years of personal research, successes and failures to come out today. The first half of the book simplifies the structure of the human mind and explores chaos theory, neuroscience discoveries, Buddhist practices and self-help techniques. These are presented in layman's terms for you to launch or pursue your personal transformation. The second half focuses on the practices to fix the mind and support healthy habits. Three equally important components compose the personal practice: -The physical practice -The ghost-chasing practice -The connection practice Understanding of your mind and your world combined with daily practice will make your inner goodness shine brighter and brighter.

A short, simple, and important compendium of our life's struggles - the pursuit of happiness, the life long chase of money, of feeling unfulfilled, of feeling lost - that explains kindly, logically, and thoughtfully why we are stuck in our ruts and self-damaging behavioral patterns, and how we can recognize and make positive changes.
Coming from humble origins, the author does not assume authority and speaks to you as a friend, as someone who has been there and understands, combining experience and research to deliver you the answers you need in a thoughtful manner.
I don't usually read self-help books, but this isn't a self-help book. It's a guidance book to shed light and encourage you to take the right steps toward the direction you want to go.
Highly recommend as a gift to students, friends, and loved ones.

Georges learns from everyone and from everything.

What he learns, he will eventually teach you, because he has devoted his life to sharing his thinking to help others become better persons and have fulfilling lives.
