Insights for Happiness and Success

"Americans are experiencing an intense search and hunger for the spiritual and an unprecedented desire for...spiritual growth." says Pollster George Gallu Jr." So many people, not only in America but all over the world are hurting from anger and guilt. They want to know "Why me? Why did this happen to me?" Some turn to drugs, such as Prozac, which bring temporary relief but also causes serious side effects. Some have surgically implanted small computer-type instruments in their chests and also found relief but this resulted in speech difficulties because of trauma to the larynx. Others are led to mainstream therapists who lead them back to difficult childhood experiences, often putting blame on parents who are less than perfect (as are we all) or even on God who gave them these parents in the first place. Still other therapists and writers say to forgive your parents or those who wronged you and let it go. You may be able to consciously forgive them, but it is extremely difficult not to suppress this anger or experience your guilt.

All these modalities give only temporary relief of symptoms and all cause other serious health problems. Only getting at the basis and true cause of anger and guilt can anxiety and depression be lifted permanently and without side effects. This book, WHO YOU ARE and WHY YOU ARE HERE does just that! It explains the Universal Laws of Reincarnation and Karma so that our anger and our guilt can be eradicated with no after effects. It does this both on conscious and unconscious levels by helping you understand why you have these experiences and how these experiences are opportunities for spiritual growth. It works!

Throughout centuries, writers and theologians have stressed the importance of forgiveness. Yet many find this very difficult, especially if they or their loved ones are harmed seriously because they don't understand that God, the Universe (whatever they wish to call the Powers That Be) have only love and fairness in their hearts and minds to uplift us. This book explains why there is no need to forgive anyone and shows how we create everything that happens to us and how difficult experiences are blessings in disguise to teach us needed lessons.

Millions of searchers for truth all over the world are reading the 24 volumes of the Alice Bailey books which were dictated by the Master Djwal Khul who works under Koot Humi who works directly under the Christ. Author Ruth Mierswa has read hundreds of spiritual books and found none that compared to the wisdom found in these volumes which go all the way from government to psychology and astrology.

But there is only one drawback--most readers find this work difficult to understand. Lynn Muelbl from West Allis, WI wrote in Amazon.com, "Learning Esoteric Astrology straight from the Master DK in Bailey's 'Esoteric Astrology' or even from Oken's 'Soul-Centered Astrology' can be difficult. Ruth Mierswa clearly has thoroughly studied Alice Bailey and has a gift for translating the material for all to comprehend."

The basis for WHO YOU ARE and WHY YOU ARE HERE is a new astrology developed by Mierswa after contemplating deeply on the Seven Rays found in the Alice Bailey books. Hans Kostwog, who educated psychotherapists, physicists, economists, judges and healers in Holland and Germany, believes that the Seven Rays are the most important--the framework that brings all other disciplines together. This book show shows how the Seven Rays not only can bring all disciplines together and lift each to a higher level, but especially how each reader can be lifted to a higher level. This book is written for the masses--no knowledge of astrology is necessary to understand the entire book.

"From Little Acorns: A Radical New Psychology," James Hillman says, "People have been deprived of something by our psychological culture. They have been deprived of the sense that there is something else in life, some purpose that has come with them into the world."

In the first half of this book, detailed information to find your Life Purpose and Personality Type is offered. Psychologists say that to attain good health, one's Life Purpose must be manifested, but they have no tools to find it. This book, WHO YOU ARE and WHY YOU ARE HERE, has the tools! Mierswa developed a system to find one's Life Purpose and Personality Type that is validated by showing in this book how the Life Purposes of 226 successful people found by this system coincide with the contributions of each, and by six studies and four bar graphs.

.The information in this book has turned the lives of many readers completely around. It has answered questions on a detailed, deep level that people have asked for centuries, and accepted by readers all the way from a fourteen year old who said, "It makes sense" to a skeptical scientist.

So many people are now searching for answers in these troubling times and have not found them in religion, psychology, philosophy or even books.
