Stress is a mind-borne discomfort that infects us through our thought-process and sense organs. But the point worth considering is why we allow stress to infect us? Are we not intelligent human beings? Yes indeed we are. But, in spite of all our intelligent achievements, we allow stress to infect us because of following four fundamental reasons:1. We are lonely in the crowd.2. We don’t trust life3. We are non-co-operative and hostile towards ourselves.4. Life does not have a script and we don't know whether to be self-directed or other-directed.This book is all about understanding these fundamental reasons from all possible aspects and achieve a stress free living.
