The book details human abnormality, greed, stress, and the cruelty we force on each other. It also sheds light on mankind’s lost efforts to discover life’s aim and meaning through belongings and toxic relationships.

There are so many elements on earth, nature, that can please you and give you a beautiful life. Regular yoga, a good diet is most important. Another essential aspect of life is the inner you. If you cannot keep your mind and soul pure, then nothing can please you completely. Ram Dass always mentioned the power of being together, love, humanity, and minimalist.
“But be warned, oh seeker of knowledge, of the thicket of opinions and of arguing about words. There is nothing to opinions, they may be beautiful or ugly, smart or foolish, everyone can support them or discard them. But the teachings, you’ve heard from me, are no opinion, and their goal is not to explain the world to those who seek knowledge. They have a different goal; their goal is salvation from suffering. This is what Gotama teaches, nothing else.”
