Live as if Everything is a Miracle!


How to Find Happiness by Embracing the Intersection of the Sweet and the Nothing

"There are two ways to live;

You can live if nothing is a miracle;

You can live as if everything is a miracle"

—Albert Einstein

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Feeling challenged by the stresses of today's world? Looking for guidance in finding your true compass? Wouldn't it be nice to find a roadmap through the chaos?


Actually, there is. Self-help author Ana Weber joins with her life partner Mario Haber for her 10th book, Sweet Nothings: a series of reflections and meditations to steer a happy course through modern life, in 14 bite-sized chapters.

Each chapter pairs a "sweet" (something we recognize as a pleasure) with a "nothing" (often, a challenge to our thinking and living patterns), sandwiching them between a wisdom quote and reflective questions.

For instance, in Chapter 10, under a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Weber and Haber balance the "sweet" of common sense with the "nothing" of calmness and peace of mind. The result?

I began to slow down, take a few deep breaths and in the process understand my need to recharge my entire being. I came up with amazing results at home and at work. Furthermore I developed great communication skills and the ability to connect with my loved ones and be there for them. I also built a great system juggling priorities and stopped going to extremes. I became disciplined and organized.  I felt free.

Other chapters balance such "sweets" and "nothings" as graciousness with freedom to cultivate, music and time, love and the present, in different formats such as checklist exercises, meditations, and the authors' own experiences.

In a world full of constant overstimulation, neither withdrawal nor blind immersion is a workable strategy. You need the ability to step back, take a breath, and absorb what's going on, and then continue from a wiser, informed perspective, is crucial. Weber and Haber can help you find that balance.
