In Today’s world, there are pills or powders for almost all ills. But many people prefer to avoid medications. Mrs. Maxwell has created a masterpiece of research and writing for just such persons. In clear style, she describes how to coordinate the necessary resources for health–proper nutrition, exercise, rest, nurture of the mind and spirit, and positive interpersonal relations. If you are interested in a balanced and healthy lifestyle, read this book!
One of the most commonly-omitted facets of modern day life is that of spirituality. The demands on our time, energy and money keep us so focused on materialism that we tend to forget the values of the Spirit. Yet freedom from guilt, with all of its tension-produceing anxiety, is available through spiritual means. Recognition of our failings, repentance, restitution and forgiveness are all functions of the spirit. Without offending any given philosophy or faith, these pages will teach you how these processes can totally heal.
The evidence of spiritual health is seen in the growth of love, joy, peace, gentleness, goodness, teachableness, and other qualities of greatness. It hardly needs saying that when these characteristics are strong, psychological health will also be strong. It is impossible to remain angry, worried, or in conflict when one is primarily loving, joyful, and peaceful!
