Be Happy Being Nobody
We are all desperately trying to be somebody, to be “special.” No one wants to be a loser, a small fry, a big zero. But maybe we’ve got it all wrong.
In his new book Be Nobody Lama Marut shows that the quest to distinguish ourselves is the true cause of our dissatisfaction, and it continually leaves us feeling isolated and alone. The book comes at a perfect time when we're all self-obsessed in our Facebook, narcissistic world where selfies and information about how great we are is judged online. As most can attest to, it never makes us feel whole, and oftentimes makes us feel more alone. Drawing from the spiritual truism that only by losing the self can we discover our real potential, Be Nobody provides guidance, actions, and simple meditations to help you lay down the heavy burden of trying to be somebody—without requiring you to live in a monastery or retire to a cave in the Himalayas. When we vacate ourselves, we will finally have the freedom to find true fulfillment.
