He begins by breaking down the barrier between the spiritual and the mundane, showing that work, sex, and money are just as much a part of our spiritual life as they are a part of our everyday existence. He then discusses these subjects in relation to ego and self-image, karma, mindfulness, and meditation. Work includes general principles of mindfulness and awareness in how we conduct everyday life as well as discussion of ethics in business and the workplace. Sex is about relationships and communication as a whole. Money looks at how we view the economics of livelihood and money as green energy that affects our lives. The result is an inclusive vision of life, one that encompasses the biggest issues and the smallest details of every day.
There are, in fact, few definitive answers in these pages. There is, however, authentic wisdom providing us with tools we need to work with the toughest stuff in our lives.
