Summary

We live in an age in which unhappiness, depression, stress and anxiety are everywhere. We struggle with things like bad relationships, work pressure, low self-esteem, worry and helplessness. The list is endless, because everyone is unhappy for different reasons.
Whatever the causes of your unhappiness, this book will lay out a way of looking at yourself that can transform your psychology and behaviour.
Presenting the 'why', 'what' and 'how' of happiness, Colm O'Connor will inspire you to take your emotional well-being seriously and show you how to build essential happiness-enhancing disciplines into everyday life. In showing how we need to 'do happiness' rather than how to 'get happiness' you will discover a new way to help awaken your innate happiness and well-being in a deeply human and practical way.
Inside you will find a list of the 21 things that are essential for happiness, the 15 principles of happiness, and a method that is easy to integrate with daily routines.

    A family with a dark secret. 
    A child who refuses to speak. 
    Rosie must help her before it’s too late. 
    Nine-year-old Caitlin has a secret, but she cannot tell anyone about it. When her mother is sectioned under the Mental Health Act she and her three siblings have to go and live with her grandmother Julie and grandad Ryan. 
    Caitlin finds her new living conditions challenging: cat poo on the carpet, rubbish everywhere and the constant stare of her grandad – she retreats more and more into herself. 
    When foster carer Rosie Lewis meets Caitlin she knows something is deeply wrong with this little girl, who is withdrawn, afraid and refuses to speak. Rosie decides to take her in, but Caitlin’s silence continues, and Rosie knows she must act. 
    Why is Caitlin so afraid to speak? 
    Could it be that the family has a dark secret? 
    One that is so shocking it can no longer be hidden? 
    Rosie Lewis, the Sunday Times bestselling author, delves deep into the psychology of a child suffering from abuse, painting a vivid picture of the struggle within. The memoirs of her work with Caitlin, a child on the autism spectrum, are both personal and heart-wrenching, making this autobiography a bestseller. 
    For fans of Maggie Hartley (Battered, Broken, Healed), Linda Watson-Brown (Don't Say A Word), Veronica Clark (Snatched), Torey L. Hayden (The Invisible Girl), and Katy Weitz (The Girl for the Job).

    For ANY WOMAN, the given material provides a recipe, and therefore an opportunity to get any man born on August 2 of common years (or August 1 of leap years) into bed within a short period of time, and without the need to invest a lot of energy. If you happen to be married to this man, you can instantly improve your sex life by implementing this information. 
    --- 
    If you are a MAN born on August 2 of common years (or August 1 of leap years), or know, or meet someone born on this date, you will now know the subconscious secrets of your (his) sexual factor. You can then monitor your (his) interactions with women, compare to the information provided, understand exactly how you can be seduced, and admit your sexual peculiarities to yourself without feeling ashamed or unaccepted (it is ok to be who you are!). 
    --- 
    In the event that you do not know anyone, and are not born on August 2 of common years (or August 1 of leap years) yourself, there are plenty of ways to find such a person, apply the information provided and enjoy the results, just do a simple search via the Internet. You could also compare the information (or even dare to test it out) on famous men born on August 2 of common years (or August 1 of leap years).

    "We have invented nothing and we do not invent, we simply read the text, we do not know how many millions of years old it is. And since this text - Shan Hai Jing - exists, has been passed to us by someone, left to us to study - hence, we should research it. And if it does not occur, type homo then remains a seed which will never grow into a tree." A. Davydov, O. Skorbatyuk

    Are we free, whether we know it or not? Or is our sense of freedom merely an illusion? Rudolf Steiner tackles this age-old problem in a new way. He shows that by taking account of our own activity of thinking, we can know the reasons for our actions. And if these reasons are taken from our world of ideals, then our actions are free, because we alone determine them. But this freedom cannot be settled for us by philosophical argument. It is not simply granted to us. If we want to become free, we have to strive through our own inner activity to overcome our unconscious urges and habits of thought. In order to do this we must reach a point of view that recognises no limits to knowledge, sees through all illusions, and opens the door to an experience of the reality of the spiritual world. Then we can achieve the highest level of evolution. We can recognise ourselves as free spirits. This special reprint, featuring the acclaimed translation by Michael Wilson, is being made available in response to public demand.
