Our happiness is the result of our intentions and reactions toward others, our thoughts, and circumstances. This is because human consciousness is essentially a Nothingness, a No-thingness, and therefore becomes its intentions. We become the hatred we direct at others, and the kindness we treat others with. Every Drop of Water and Every Grain of Salt on the Way to ...more

Something that I really value about this book and the way that the author, Armando S.

This book focuses on the importance of happiness. In a time when so many people are struggling with feeling unhappy, this book is a welcome burst of sunshine into the reader’s life. I found this book especially helpful in today’s political climate, as the author focuses on the ways in which a person’s negative emotions actually harm them (rather than the person they dislike).

Dr. Garcia writes with a clarity and authority gained from many years of methodical introspection and the keen observation of young minds. His work is motivated by the recognition that the greatest affliction of the modern age comes not from disease but from the loss of the natural happiness and sense of meaningfulness that we were born with. Dr. Garcia is a practicing pediatrician in Orlando, ...more
“Truly, if there is any substantial meaning that is allotted to human existence, it must rest on a moral universe, on being a good person; because nothing of value can be extracted from a world which is through and through Not-self.” 0 likes
