Today, a significant percentage of human beings are surviving but cant be described as emotionally and spiritually prosperous. Depression, apathy, interpersonal violence, divorce, vocational dissatisfaction, restlessness, and anxiety are rampant in our materially-blessed society. For all our gadgets, gizmos, and 1,000 TV channels, opinion polls suggest that many of us are not happy campers. In this new thought-provoking and deeply honest book, Unitarian-Universalist pastor Michael Schuler traces the roots of our unhappiness back to our refusal to confront the long-term consequences of our immoderate choices. Choosing denial and short-term gratification, many Americans have lost their connection with a sustainable life path. To help readers make sustainable living second nature, Schuler identifies the behavioral principles that make it workPay Attention, Stay Put, Exercise Patience, and Practice Prudence--and shows readers how to apply these principles to their daily lives.
