Money is an essential part of life when we live physically on Earth. So, how can we live spiritually with money? In this sixth book in the “Spiritual Living” series, a young man, Tom, discusses this soul searching question with Guru Harry, who is a spirit and practices spirituality that is not religious. In their discussion, they explore the following deep questions: (1) How does money relate to the physical needs of a body? (2) How important is money to the poor and to the rich? (3) How come the spiritual masters can say “no” to money so easily? (4) How can we give kindness for free? (5) What are the characteristics of money as compared with those of morality? May this wisdom enable you to live spiritually with money in a physical, practical society!

Hence, this book explores the deep questions: (1) How to use beliefs for spiritual living? (2) How do spiritual beings cope with money in a non-spiritual society? (3) What are the characteristics of spiritual beings as compared to physical beings? This book contains a conversation between a young man, Tom, and Guru Harry, who epitomizes someone from a spiritual society and offers a way of living that can lead to peace, love, joy and harmony. In the conversation, they explore all the above questions and other issues related to living spiritually in a non-spiritual society.

In spirituality, there is a theory that a Great Spirit hovers around us. It sees what we are doing. It guides us and protects us. It also creates opportunities for us to meet the “right” people and participate in the “right” events so that we grow spiritually. Is this theory true? I don’t know. I’m an ordinary human being without any spiritual power. However, by looking at the events that happened in my present incarnation for the past 70 years, I believe that there were many occasions in which the Great Spirit was active in my life. In this book, in nine chapters, I share the people and events which I believe the Great Spirit has used to shape my life and moved me in directions that I had never dreamt of. The chapters are: (1) On my parents, (2) On my studies, (3) On my working life as an engineer and on my wife, (4) On my working life as an academic, (5) On my sporting achievements, (6) On my working life as an editor and a consultant, (7) On my working life as an author and a speaker, (8) On my life mission and other life stories, and (9) On the Great Spirit. After living this life for seven decades and believing that it has been shaped by the Great Spirit, I like to say that it’s been a truly blessed life – a life that is filled with meaning and fulfillment! I hope this sharing enables you to be more aware of the Great Spirit in your life and you too will see your life as blessed, meaningful, and fulfilling. May the Great Spirit be with you!

There are eight basic human emotions that all people experience--hurt, guilt/shame, anger, anxiety, sorrow, fear, happiness, and love. We might believe we make sense of our lives by thinking through our experiences, but neuroscience shows that the part of our brains that processes emotions is many times faster than the part where logic and reason hold sway. It's the way God created us, but if we do not develop wisdom for handling our feelings, we may find that our emotions continue to get the best of us. Thankfully, the Bible is full of guidance about our emotions. With keen insight into human psychology and a gift for drawing wisdom for life from Scripture, Dr. Mark Baker shows readers how they can find comfort and promote emotional health in their lives. Anyone experiencing distress in their relationships or struggling with overwhelming emotions or even traumatic events will find clear biblical help and healing, leading them to a happier, more fulfilled life.
