'Understand your mind and you understand life'. Wisdom lies in reaching the state of maturity, where we accept life as it is, without a single word of complaint, whether our problems stem at the physical or mental level. Conscious Living is a compilation of various articles that inspire us to discover the joy of life, that expresses itself as our thoughts, emotions, feelings and intelligence. However, the desire to live as the limited self is the nature of the ignorant while the pursuit to discover the eternal Self is the nature of the wise. This book deals with questions like- 1.What is death? .How to share and care? 2.How to accept life as it is? 3.How to gain control of mind? 4.How to lead a life of inspiration? 5.Hoe to develop a vision in our life? 6.How to evolve from ordinary to extraordinary? The author Swami Ishwarananda is a disciple of Swami Chinmayananda. He wrote these thought provoking articles for the CMW newsletter published from Piercy, California to inspire the readers to live a healthy, spiritually advanced life. He has a lucid style of writing, supported by anecdotes, quotes and messages from various regions of the world. His words are very convincing, apt to the well known saying - 'Wisdom is to be caught, not taught!'
Conscious Living Made Easy will guide you to living a full and rewarding life, a life without regret. It will help you to take control and responsibility for living life in the present, appreciating life as you live it and to set a realistic path in life for yourself. It will guide you to examining your beliefs and integrate those most beneficial to your path into your spirituality. Part of conscious living is to acknowledge that death will come. As children, we think we are immortal. Even as we get older, we think it is someone else that will die, not us. Our death is far off and we have plenty of time to do whatever we want. To live consciously is to accept that death is a part of life and plan for it, while not allowing it to dominate our life at any age. Bob Southard, after his own near death encounter, shares his experience and offers his thoughts, beliefs and meditations to help you plan for and live life in a conscious way.

We financially plan for our retirement, but do we plan for our wellbeing? Here is an empowering guide with practical tools to help you live a passionate, fulfilling second half of life. If you’re part of the Baby Boomer generation, then you belong to 26 percent of the US population that is retiring healthier than any generation before. And that means retirement is starting to look a whole lot different. No longer satisfied with a quiet life of sitting on the porch or puttering around the house, retirees (or soon to be) are looking to create a passionate, active, fulfilled, and engaging later life. That’s where Ron Pevny comes in. His inspiring guide helps you do what he calls “conscious aging”—or making a reality the life of growth, purpose, service, and spiritual exploration you’ve always imagined for yourself. In addition to wisdom for navigating loss and grief, Pevny offers advice that helps you identify your goals, contribute to society, remain engaged and relevant, and spend your later years in profound personal development. Today’s seniors are reshaping what retirement is all about. It is a whole new opportunity to engage with family, community, and the world with vigor. Don’t just grow older—age consciously.
