How do we live a happy life

How do I live a good life?

Who am I - how do I want to live? How do I get out of a dead end? How do I deal with the subject of death? What makes me happy
These questions have preoccupied mankind for thousands of years. "As this water flows, everything flows there ..." (Confucius, around 530 BC) But what relevance do the thoughts of the ancient philosophers still have today, in the age of the Internet and rapid social change?

Albert Kitzler, philosopher and lawyer, stepped out of his everyday life as a successful media lawyer and film producer. Since then he has dedicated himself to the ideas of the oldest philosophers, from whom we have received writings: Confucius, Laotse, Plato, Socrates and many more.

Albert Kitzler, philosopher and lawyer, stepped out of his everyday life as a successful media lawyer and film producer. Since then he has dedicated himself to the ideas of the oldest philosophers, from whom we have received writings: Confucius, Laotse, Plato, Socrates and many more. Since 2010 he has headed “Measure and Middle - School for Ancient Wisdom”, leads seminars, matinees and coaching sessions and gives lectures. During the reading round of this book I experienced him as a person who seriously responds to others, who has in-depth knowledge, but also life experience, and who is happy to make this available to others.

In this easy-to-read, clear and well-structured book, the reader will find instructions for meaningful reflection - about oneself, others, the world, death and happiness. The goal: to explore your own character, strengths and weaknesses, so that you can balance yourself again and again and thus pave your own personal path to happiness. Many current aspects are highlighted: friendships and networks, need for recognition and true role models, burn-out, psychotherapy and work-life balance.

I found it incredibly interesting to learn what wise thoughts are already in ancient scriptures such as the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, Confucius or Aristotle, and how we can transfer many ideas directly into the present day. For me this book is a real help in life, which I will definitely read through again and again chapter by chapter, because on this path as a “learner” you never reach your goal - but you can learn something new every day! "Only those who can be taught can become a master" ... (Ancient Egypt)

Absolutely deserved 5 out of 5 stars and a reading recommendation for anyone looking for their own personal path to happiness!
