Joy of Affliction

I borrowed the book "Daily Afflictions" very recently from a friend of mine, and I must say, I'd recommend it to anyone who is sick and tired of all the usual stuff in the self help genre (you know- visualizing success, positive affirmations and the like)

This book is awesome because it doesn't mollycoddle you. Instead, reading this book made me feel extremely free and yet connected to everyone and everything in a deep, different way. I especially loved the chapter around the inner psychopath that all of us have but don't express.

It is a weird thing, but I've noticed that books written from a place of truth have a different power to them. But maybe that is just me distorting my own reality.

Hi Sid,

Gone through recent blogs of yours and I must say you have an unique flair for putting your thoughts to pen.

Keep up the good work.

Hey Siddharth,

Glad you nejoyed that book - something similar has happened to me when I first went through it. Its truthful without being apologetic about it, and doesnt try to gloss over things. In essense it doesnt have anything to cover-up. Its all there, as it is...
