Spirit Controlled Temperament

Authors: Tim LaHaye, David Pawson

Publisher: Kingsway Publications (1973)

Everyone is a curious mixture of weaknesses and strengths, and there's a reason, explains author Tim La Haye. Everyone has inherited a distinct temperament - predominantly sanguine, choleric, melancholy, or phlegmatic, with a combination of traits from two or more groups. Given a person's natural temperament, the Holy Spirit can manifest supernatural characteristics in his life. God's Spirit can release an individual from a life of anger, fear, depression, indecisiveness, instability, and restlessness, and can give a new freedom of peace, purpose, self-control, and dignity.

The Art Of Happiness - A Handbook For Living

Authors: Hh Dalai Lama, Howard C Cutler

Publisher: Coronet Books (1998)

This will be the first book by the Dalai Lama written to appeal to a general audience and focusing on the practical application of his spiritual values. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sit down with the Dalai Lama and really press him about life's persistent questions? Why are so many people unhappy? How can I abjure loneliness? How can we reduce conflict? Is romantic love true love? Why do we suffer? How should we deal with unfairness and anger? How do you handle the death of a loved one? These are the conundrums that psychiatrist Howard Cutler poses to the Dalai Lama during an extended period of interviews in The Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living. At first, the Dalai Lama's answers seem simplistic, like a surface reading of Robert Fulghum: ask yourself if you really need something; our enemies can be our teachers; compassion brings peace of mind. Cutler pushes: but some people do seem happy with lots of possessions; but "suffering is life" is so pessimistic; but going to extremes provides the zest in life; but what if I don't believe in karma? As the Dalai Lama's responses become more involved, a coherent philosophy takes shape. Cutler then develops the Dalai Lama's answers in the context of scientific studies and cases from his own practice, substantiating and elaborating on what he finds to be a revolutionary psychology. Like any art, the art of happiness requires study and practice--and the talent for it, the Dalai Lama assures us, is in our nature. Brian Bruya
