The Little Book On Meaning: Why We Crave It, How We Create It by Laura Berman FortgangEmail This Post
In The Little Book of Meaning, Laura Berman Fortgang reveals that while our hunger for a “meaningful” life can be enormous, our desire for meaning is usually satiated by small, bite-size morsels of meaning—the small, almost incidental events or “achievements” that comprise the fabric of our lives. According to Fortgang, meaning is where you look for it and through tenderly-drawn stories from her own life and the lives of those around her, she shows readers how they too can peek around corners to discover the small elements of their lives that truly matter. Where are some of the easiest places to look? Laura takes readers through five other “M words” beyond the godfather of them all—Meaning Meaning—that will serve as markers on the path:
* Mystery: Many of us are so busy looking for answers we fail to consider the questions.
* Minister: Caring for others can be the best thing we can do for ourselves.
*Magnificence: If we will just open our eyes – and truly look – beauty and purpose are everywhere!
*Mind: Tangled up in our thoughts, we fail to experience the moment.
*Mystic: Learning to see the world through the eyes of a mystic, suddenly everything holds meaning.
The Little Book of Meaning is an invaluable guide and companion for anyone seeking greater meaning and purpose in their life.
