The author has touched on the issues that many of us are facing today– the love for money and power. This book reminds us that we just spiritual beings, instead of focusing on the worldly desires, we should focus on our eternal self and our eternal truth. A great, well-written book, but short. Eat, Work, and Worry should be your go-to roundup enlightening book for spiritual growth. – Amazon Review
When we unite ourselves with our own truth and separate from our own desires, ambitions, possessions, and experiences, we will come to appreciate all the things as they are and be content with grateful hearts.
We are not our relationship. We are not our career.We are not our bank account. We are not our debt.We are not the car we drive.We are not the beautiful mansion we live in.We are not our successes or our failures.We are not our physical beauty.We are nothing but a spirit singing and dancing along with the tide of life.
“Life is more than just earning money and wealth,” agreed! However, the truth is that we all have become a part of this money and wealth driven rat race with a rare chance of escape.
“Eat, Work & Worry” was an enlightening read about money, wealth, workaholism, greed, and such other human emotions and behaviors. The author has worked her magic in concluding personal experiences, philosophies, and concepts from religions like Buddhism and Christianity. It was a book to calm myself and helped me to look around with a more peripheral view of our lives. Was a quick and enjoyable read! – Amazon Reviewer
The title is what attracted me to buy this. It didn’t disappoint me. It made me reflect on my own selfish desires of acquiring material things. It is true, we are indeed spiritual beings. So acquiring material things to make us feel better will not bring permanent happiness. We are always yearning for something more. As the author says, “When our mind is constantly focused on money, there is a sense of desperation and worry. Most people worry that if they do not work hard, money will not come. Money is energy. It never runs out, so there is no need to chase after it. God created day and night, so human beings, even animals, can have time to rest.” I totally agree with this! – Amazon Reviewer
