In “Have This Mind: Supreme Happiness, Ultimate Realization, and the Four Great Religions – An Integral Adventure” (published by Balboa Press), James E. Royster gathers wisdom from the world’s four largest religions and uses it to give answers to some of humanity’s greatest questions.
“Have This Mind” offers a comprehensive map of the human situation. According to Royster, the book provides a way of understanding life’s difficulties and problems. “It identifies the causes of human discord and suffering,” he says. Royster offers perspectives and practices that enable people to discover deep and pervasive happiness – a state of well-being which he suggests is inherent in life – and create a more easeful and joyous life. At its core, the book upholds the idea that supreme happiness lies within a person, rather than as the result of external circumstances.
“Have This Mind” offers a radically different way of being in the world. It sets forth perspectives and attitudes for finding contentment within oneself – in one’s inner self – rather than, as the author writes, “in prizes won or goals achieved. One finds meaning, satisfaction and joy in the very process of life, in what one does moment by moment, without projecting these most-important values into a fantasized future.”
Royster believes his book has the potential to profoundly impact readers’ lives. “Interested, perceptive readers will gain insight into the crucial role that authentic religion plays in their personal lives, will learn ways of enhancing their own spirituality and will come to increased understanding and perhaps even appreciation of other religions – and be less disturbed by the inevitable discord that arises from deficient religious beliefs and practices,” he says.
