This book is about a new way of thinking and how to have what we want in life. Think about how we live. Most of us hop from one goal to the next. To what end? Does chasing those goals ever really bring us lasting happiness? Don’t we need to follow ever bigger and higher goals? What’s the alternative? The whole world revolves around this notionof goal achievement, yet the most successful people—as measured by their goal achievements—are never guaranteed happiness. Why do we buy into this? The answer is we don’t know an alternative. We stay busy pursuing goals, so we don’t have to face the things that really scare us, like not being loved or losing the things that matter to us. The secret is that it’s an illusion: No matter what we love, it changes. Our kids, our bodies, our relationships—they all change. Where are we all racing to then?
Imagine this headline: Man Dies of Starvation at Buffet because He Couldn’t Decide What to Eat. Obviously, you would think that was some kind of joke. The truth is that— although not literally—it happens every day. There are people dying of loneliness while surrounded by a sea of people.

Description

This book is about a new way of thinking and how to have what we want in life. Think about how we live. Most of us hop from one goal to the next. To what end? Does chasing those goals ever really bring us lasting happiness? Don’t we need to follow ever bigger and higher goals? What’s the alternative? The whole world revolves around this notionof goal achievement, yet the most successful people—as measured by their goal achievements—are never guaranteed happiness. Why do we buy into this? The answer is we don’t know an alternative. We stay busy pursuing goals, so we don’t have to face the things that really scare us, like not being loved or losing the things that matter to us. The secret is that it’s an illusion: No matter what we love, it changes. Our kids, our bodies, our relationships—they all change. Where are we all racing to then?
Imagine this headline: Man Dies of Starvation at Buffet because He Couldn’t Decide What to Eat. Obviously, you would think that was some kind of joke. The truth is that— although not literally—it happens every day. There are people dying of loneliness while surrounded by a sea of people. How many people live in poverty in the US, even though it’s the richest country in the world? Why do we starve when we are surrounded by what we want?
The answer is that the reason for the starvation is not external, but internal. Here’s an idea. What if Starvation were a place we could visit? Who would want to go there for their summer vacation? This book explores the idea that there are places where we gather and suffer together. Then we call it reality. The world is divided into six communities. Each one has its own brand of suffering, from the people who have so much they don’t know what to do with it; to the people who have so little they can barely survive. These collective pockets are places we can visit, or we can move in permanently. Worse, we can have different parts of our A Journey to the Stream lives living in different places. Often, we see examples of very rich people who are starving for love, or people who are rich in loving families and communities but are very poor. This book explores two worlds: one that we can see around us and another that we can’t see. Imagine a virtual world that determines what we experience in the real world; it’s like living in a video game. Imagine belonging to a place called Shortage and Starvation in the virtual world and having that cause Shortage and Starvation in the real world.
If that were true, it would mean that getting what we want is just a matter of changing our character’s location! That’s the idea presented in this book: there really is a place of real joy, a place where things don’t change arbitrarily, and we can have whatever we want, for as long as we want. That place is in our higher self. For some, it is our God self… whatever you call it, the idea is that our suffering comes from a separation from ourselves. Instead of reconnecting with our inner selves, we grasp for things like status and safety.
