In an easy-to-read format, with engaging stories and thoughtful anecdotes drawn from a multitude of sources -- folktales, the Bible, eastern philosophy, and the Talmud -- "The Power of Self-Dependence leads us beyond our commonplace notion of independence to the more profound concept of self-dependence.
Dr. Jorge Bucay, taking on the role of Life-Coach, proposes that in order for us all to attain balance in our lives and to achieve inner peace, we must acknowledge our dependence on those around us -- whether they are friends, family, or even coworkers. We can't, Bucay firmly establishes, go it alone.
With his unique blend of spirituality and practical wisdom, Bucay explains why independence proves to be an illusion and demonstrates how understanding this allows us to transform ourselves into healthy, enlightened individuals.
Without ignoring our own need for independence, Bucay shows us that as people, we are social creatures who must learn to trust and embrace one another. Before we can seek happiness, says Bucay, we must first learn to be self-dependent -- on our own instincts and of those closest to us.
Once we have attained this delicate balance between trusting ourselves and trusting those we love and depend upon, we clear the path toward the ultimate goal: personal happiness.
