The monk who sold his Ferrari by Robin Sharma

Genius, Jean-Jacques Rousseau was a French philosopher. It was Rousseau, the Europe with slogans for return to nature in the time of the industrial revolution as all machines and the power thereof was enthusiastic. Rousseau spoke out for a shift from reliance on the head, (thats reason) a shift to the heart and nature pure and simple life. Rousseau called on the people who are in a real world. He advocated and kindled a new appreciation of natural beauty, wild life, forests, landscapes, mountains and valleys.

Natural life, Rousseau, argued is mentally meet charming and cultivation of people.

Rousseau the dominant culture and philosophy of Europe found too cruel and materialist. His idea of happiness was sentimental, peace, social and private. The dominant philosophy of Europe or the Western tradition and civilization is that something you earn happiness and earn and to conquer. Western according to tradition, there are no individual rights to the luck: you can be happy only if you are successful in a luxurious life. Note that you (and sometimes they make slaves) people have on the way to beat life of luxury to soldiers through, to win she brushes aside and in life. Happiness and success is something you earn and deserve in accordance with the Western tradition. You can access only happiness by successfully in life. In this way, people's lives are at war, struggling to achieve, controlling, planning, strategy development, and manage the order of the Western way of life is.

Rousseau is supported by one of the modern Robin Sharma. Robin Sharma in his book the monk who sold his Ferrari talks about a gentleman lawyer who probably was the most successful lawyer on the planet Earth. This lawyer at the age of 53, had a heart attack and collapse as he was a high powered case Court argued right in the middle of the Court. And what follows can be that he is a near-death experience entered and joined in his review of life. Life review is the process, the, which we in, enter shortly before we die. In this process, nature guide us through a comprehensive review of our lives. The purpose is to see us as if we were good or bad, while here on Earth live.

But in the end this particular lawyer survived the heart attack and came back to life here on this planet Earth. But he is a completely changed person close to have had near-death experience. He leaving the profession right and all of its luxury gave away. He travelled to India to live in the mountains of India far away from people and civilization. Live in the mountains in the forests of India, where there no technology or a so-called progress that comes with the Western tradition. It mixes this former lawyer with people in the modern sense of the Western civilization you can call the savage and primitive and uncivilized, time communing with nature, hiking in the forest a spending life completely opposite the great life he lived in big cities as a prominent lawyer.

This former lawyer, beyond the appearances encounters people with impeccable wisdom, wisdom based on compassion, natural justice and kindness towards Western tradition wisdom is strongly wanted and achieve happiness outside and always successful.

Also Leo Tolstoy wrote a short story called a man must work how much land. The moral of the story in this story is that at the end we the best days of our lives chasing everything in the name of the success really matter that much. All we need really, as soon as our life is not too much more than six feet, dust and soil at the end.

"Society has become a messy place." We have neglected, what it means for something greater than our lives and we have to win our priorities by focusing exclusively on ourselves as passionate help all around us win in a gesture of kindness and encouragement. moved "-Robin Sharma"
