Why are you here? What is life for? What are you meant to do? Best-selling author Robert Holden helps you go from looking for your purpose to living it. (Hint: It’s not just about you.) “How do I find my life’s purpose?” In the 10-year run of Robert Holden’s call-in radio show, Shift Happens!, his listeners asked that question more often than any other, by far. It seems everybody is looking for their purpose, and yet we all struggle to recognize it and live it. In Higher Purpose, Holden takes readers on an epic journey of self-discovery that includes the hero’s journey with Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung’s work on true vocation, Victor Frankl’s search for meaning, a pilgrimage with St. Francis of Assisi, the poetry of Wordsworth and Rilke, and much more. The journey has four stages: “The Call” explores “the calling” inside you to live a more meaningful life. “The Path” helps you to realize what inspires you, what brings you alive, to follow your joy, and to do more of what you love. “The Ordeal” tackles the inner blocks, the road of trials, and challenges you must overcome to live your higher purpose. “The Victory” encourages you to not betray yourself, to “sing your whole song,” and to keep on saying YES to your soul’s high adventure. In Higher Purpose, Holden explores three distinct levels of purpose: your unique purpose, a shared purpose, and the greater purpose of life. He offers inquiries, meditations, and journaling exercises to help you live your purpose every day. And he shares stories from his own life and conversations with a host of remarkable people—Maya Angelou, Louise Hay, Jean Houston, Matthew Fox, Robert Thurman, Caroline Myss, Andrew Harvey, Wayne Dyer, Oprah Winfrey, and more.

It addresses the most important thing you will ever learn. All the happiness, health, and abundance you experience in life comes from your ability to love and be loved. This ability is innate, not acquired. Robert Holden is the creator of a unique program on love called Loveability, which he teaches worldwide. He has helped thousands of people to transform their experience of love. "Love is the real work of your life," says Robert. "As you release the blocks to love you flourish even more in your relationships, work, and life." In Loveability, Robert weaves a beautiful mix of timeless principles and helpful practices about the nature of true love. With great intimacy and warmth, he shares stories, conversations, meditations, and poetry that have inspired him in his personal inquiry on love. Key themes include: • Your destiny is not just to find love; it is to be the most loving person you can be. • Self-love is how you are meant to feel about yourself. It is the key to loving others. • When you think something is missing in a relationship, it is probably you. • Forgiveness helps you to see that love has never hurt you; it is only your misperceptions of love that hurt. • The greatest influence you can have in any situation is to be the presence of love.

Originally published in 1988, this landmark study develops its own positive account of the nature and foundations of moral judgement, while at the same time serving as a guide to the range of views on the matter which have been given in modern western philosophy. The book addresses itself to two main questions: Can moral judgements be true or false in that fundamental sense in which a true proposition is one which describes things as they really are? Are rational methods available in ethics which can be expected to produce convergence on shared moral views on the part of those who use them intelligently?

If God is everywhere, then God is in the ordinary happenings of everyday life and seeking God in and through daily life activities is a spiritual practice. God dwells in and through each human being to shine the life and light of the universe. God knows exactly what is needed to move creation to its next step and endows us with gifts needed to achieve it. Through the flow of life—events, family, relationships, work, hobbies, interests and personality—God works continually to create us anew. Our call is to observe life's happenings, feel their dynamism and make bold choices to live a larger life." God is not remote from us. He is at the point of my pen, my pick, my paintbrush, my needle — and my heart and my thoughts." Pierre Teilhard de Chardin “They should practice the seeking of God’s presence in all things, in their conversations, their walks, in all that they see, taste, hear, understand, and in all their actions, since His Divine Majesty is truly in all things by His presence, power, and essence.” St. Ignatius of Loyola, 1551 “The more you are in harmony with the flow of your existence, the more magical life becomes.” Adyashanti

"And the clients, why did they have to keep their damn appointments? All that time I could have been spending on Facebook with my boyfriend. I was exhausted and tearful every time we were out of touch...Can you imagine? You are in the waiting room just before your appointment, and your shrink is in her treatment room typing and crying her eyes out.""Hilarious, poignant, and wrenching. Erin Jae Bydlo is a great writer. The Needy Therapist will be appreciated by the same audience that loved Mennonite in a Little Black Dress." C.G."I really enjoyed this book and couldn't put it down! It is funny, thought provoking, and pulled on my heartstrings. As a woman in her 40's who recently rekindled a long, lost love after 23 years apart, I found it very relatable. While reading this book, it brought back that magical feeling of a first, true love that never really ends." E.M."This book was hilarious and bold. As a psychotherapist, I was really chuckling at the scenarios both in the workplace and in life. The author fearlessly unleashes about her insecurities, mishaps, crashes and triumphs. Erin writes with the razor-sharp wit that only a deliciously flawed therapist can. I can fully relate!" - J.M.
