For those who are seeking a path of simplicity, not bound by the trappings of spiritual practice, Adyashanti brings a fresh and humble approach to Zen wisdom. "Don't think that awakening is the end," teaches Adyashanti. "Awakening is the end of seeking, the end of the seeker, but it is the beginning of a life lived from your true nature."

The most “real” spiritual book I have listened to so far. Made me feel human again in all of my human imperfections. Best description of what is the ultimate meditative state as well as the objective. I am certain J. Kabt-Zin would highly approve :-) made me feel human again. Never felt so ok to not know anything and to be totally confused!! Thank you!!! Excited to listen to the rest of your books!!! Best part was “quit looking for something cause there ain’t nothing to find” love, love, love it! Can say so much more at the same time enjoying the silence in my life again :-)))))

Solve for Happy is a startlingly original book about creating and maintaining happiness, written by a top Google executive with an engineer's training and fondness for thoroughly analyzing a problem. In 2004 Mo Gawdat, a remarkable thinker whose gifts had landed him top positions in half a dozen companies and who - in his spare time - had created significant wealth, realized that he was desperately unhappy. A lifelong learner, he attacked the problem as an engineer would, examining all the provable facts and scrupulously following logic.
