Creating True ProsperityBook - 1997
In her first completely new work since The Path of Transformation, personal growth pioneer Shakti Gawain presents her definition of prosperity, one that places importance on the fulfillment of our heart & soul's desires rather than the amount of money we have. In interviewing people about their preconceptions & dissatisfactions surrounding their own prosperity, Shakti finds that most people, regardless of their wealth, experience a lack of prosperity. With this in mind, she examines the pitfalls of monetary wealth & how it does not necessarily lead to happiness & prosperity--what she defines as the feeling of having enough of what we truly need. Her approach is fresh & original; she dismantles the cause-&-effect relationship that most people construct around money & happiness, & she challenges us to truly pay attention to our longings, follow them to their roots, & separate them from false desires or addictions. In her own unique & stimulating way, Shakti explores & contrasts three traditional philosophies about wealth & prosperity: the materialistic philosophy, the transcendent spiritual viewpoint, & popular New Age philosophy. Shakti shows us how to create true prosperity, which includes satisfying relationships, happiness, & fulfillment. She speaks with authority & warmth as she sheds new understanding on a subject that concerns us all.
