Explore Within: A Journey to Inner Peace


Worth reading 😎

A profound message, simplified – the key to inner peace and happiness is to look, not outside but within yourself.

Oftentimes, we are confused about what we need; about what will actually bring us peace and happiness we are so desperately looking for. And often, we look for it outside. This book tells you that all you need to be happy and be fulfilled in life can be found within you. It tells you how to interpret emotions and change perceptions accordingly.

This book is not meant to be a guide for gaining riches or success. It is about understanding yourself truly without judgement and to embrace yourself wholly.

How you deal with satisfaction, what gives you bliss, what makes you ignorant, how you see yourself – these are some things you can answer after flipping through the pages. After all, you are the sum total of all these characteristics and emotions. The author also uses multiple examples throughout the book to explain their views, which makes the book easy to follow.

There are simple exercises throughout the book that you can do in order to find the happiness that you crave. What’s great about this book is that you get to think about small things, which can make a huge impact on your life. And getting into the nitty-gritty of things will help you achieve happiness.

Now, why are happiness and inner peace so important, you may ask. Of course, you can be happy with money, success, and material things, but will they give you the satisfaction of being truly happy? Will they give you peace? It is actually the opposite, isn’t it? The more “things” you have, the more restless you become. But it doesn’t have to be so. To truly achieve happiness and inner peace, you have to look within yourself, learn about yourself, speak to yourself, and finally find your real self.

Explore Within – A Journey to Inner Peace is a short, yet profound book that will take you a step closer to discovering yourself. Give it a read.

I got into reading quite late, but now I'm hooked on for life. I read to be happy and I write to be happy because, for me, happiness is books.
