“Life is not a bed or roses” as we all have heard this several times but the journey becomes toughest one when ones fight starts with the self. Not only the society and the outer world rather each and every activity of our lives leave powerful impacts in our thought process and sometime some of those leave negative impacts too, this is life and this is how the flow is continuing, sometime it becomes really tough to overcome those negative impacts, those not only make us perplexed rather sometime misleading also, so naturally the most important part of our lives should be an introspective views towards life, properly analyzed activities, decision making power, ability to distinguish the difference between the right and the wrong views and to lead a life identifying own abilities and the drawbacks with the change of time and phase of life and this book will help you to polish your thought process and to make necessary changes so the outcome becomes a happier one.
“Know Thyself” is one of the powerful mantras of life, though it originates from philosophy and contains deeper spiritual views but yet in this mundane world applying the mantra can help you to better understand the life and its flow.
As lots of my research articles have been published in many national and International journals of psychology I really enjoyed reading this book, what I have noticed in the human characteristics is most of the human being are suffering from lots of mental problems in life and the first and foremost reason for it is their not “so clear idea” about themselves and the book starts with the chapter where author has given it first priority so that it helps the readers to progress gradually with a strong base. Where in the book the author has discussed the issues we should first take care of ourselves, specially our mental activities on the other hand she has discussed how to handle the negative vibes form the outer world.
The major portion of the book has been focused on “self” issues which I have found much necessary, without knowing ourselves properly how can we make such a long journey of our lives? “Realization” is one of the most vital issues of our lives and it should start with “ourselves”, if the individual human being become capable enough to find out the loopholes and the positive sides of their thought process so naturally they will be able to remove those loopholes and thus it will result to have a happier life with insightful views helping to concentrate in making the positive ones more condensed.
In some of the chapters the author has shared her personal experience which will not only help the readers to connect with the author more deeply rather a real life experience will help to generate some thought process towards life.
Mental illness is nothing an uncommon issue of this present era where the phrases “competitive world” and the “first moving era” always chasing the people, sometime we take “stress” very lightly but the “stress” also can result an unexpected major problem in later life, like this there are several more which can be torturing in the future, focusing on these lightly taken issues the author has tried her best to create an awareness among the readers.
Logically I have not found any drawback in the book but so far my personal experience is concerned in the field of psychology in that view point I would like to say that in some chapters it should be better if the author would have explained more, those who don’t have proper knowledge about psychology or those who are not mature enough can find it to some extent tough to connect with the contents, otherwise in a broader field and for the matured ones this book is excellent.
