Why squander our life – the only one we have – in a permanent state of want and anxiety when we can live a life of abundance and bliss? Why make our happiness depend on externalities when the only truly lasting happiness is inside each one of us? Why sacrifice the happiness we could be enjoying today on the altar of a vague promise of future bliss when we already have everything we need to be happy in the present? In this work, the author shows us how to overcome the two main obstacles to happiness: attachment and anxiety. Readers will see that detachment and the ability to stop worrying are neither gifts of the chosen, nor inborn talents reserved for a few, but skills that can be learned at any moment in life, regardless of our situation. In the first part, we’ll focus on attachment to objects and people. We’ll see how attachment inevitably leads to fear, and that fear is incompatible with happiness. We’ll examine the role of craving and desire, of want and satisfaction, of control and freedom, of possessions and love – and we’ll see that precious little is needed to live a happy life. In the second part, we’ll delve into what is probably the main cause of unhappiness: anxiety. We’ll see that most of the worry that taints our happiness is unjustified because it stems from adversities that only exist in our mind. To understand this reasoning, we’ll analyze how we create all our expectations and fears in the present, how we project them into a future that is no less a product of our own imagination, and how we then await with apprehension the arrival of that future in which we have placed our hopes and misgivings. Happiness is not an unattainable dream, not even a future goal we’re doomed to pursue forever in vain, but a natural, innate gift we’ve all been endowed with. We have now, and always have had, all the happiness we’ll ever have, but we don’t allow it to bloom in our lives because we’ve unconsciously buried it under an ever-thickening layer of impediments that prevent it from manifesting every day of our life. This book is here to help you find your happiness, but to do so it has to challenge many of the received ideas and dogmas that for centuries have condemned humanity to unhappiness. Please read it with an open mind, and consider with fairness whether the ideas contained herein make any sense for you. When doing so, be honest with yourself and don’t let other people’s opinions influence your conclusions. Remember that ultimately you are your only judge, and that on your deathbed the opinions other people may have about you will not change the verdict of your conscience about how you lived your own life. Your happiness is in your own hands, and nowhere else, for only you can make it real. Let this book help you drop the ballast of your worries and attachments and glide smoothly through life! The solution is inside: discover it and let the magic happen! Don't wait until it's too late: it's now or never!

'To have such an uncomplicated, unaffected witness present at some of the key defining moments of the 20th century was fortunate for historians...her testimony rings absolutely true, when other politically motivated accounts of the last days of Hitler do not' Andrew Roberts Traudl Junge was 22 years old and dreamt of a career as a ballerina, until the 'opportunity of her life' beckoned and she was appointed as Adolf Hitler's secretary. From 1942 until his death she was at his side in the bunker, typing his correspondence, his speeches and even his last private and political will and testament. It was only after the war that the horrible reality of Hitler's regime began to dawn on her, and she became racked with guilt for 'liking the greatest criminal ever to have lived.' Her journal, written in 1947, is a startling eyewitness account of Hitler's court during its final years, and of the building sense of doom as the war progressed.

It is 1968. Lynnie, a young white woman with a developmental disability, and Homan, an African American deaf man, are locked away in an institution, the School for the Incurable and Feebleminded, and have been left to languish, forgotten. Deeply in love, they escape, and find refuge in the farmhouse of Martha, a retired schoolteacher and widow. But the couple is not alone-Lynnie has just given birth to a baby girl. When the authorities catch up to them that same night, Homan escapes into the darkness, and Lynnie is caught. But before she is forced back into the institution, she whispers two words to Martha: "Hide her." And so begins the 40-year epic journey of Lynnie, Homan, Martha, and baby Julia-lives divided by seemingly insurmountable obstacles, yet drawn together by a secret pact and extraordinary love.

This invaluable book is essential reading for all railway modellers, whatever their level of expertise. The author provides an overall understanding of the purpose of making buildings for a model railway and covers their construction, their positioning and how to light them.Topics covered include railway and non-railway buildings, explaining how the latter can also enhance your trains; modelling attitudes, the use of scale, levels of detail and both regional vernacular and railway architecture; ready-made buildings and how you can adapt them to your own particular purposes; different materials available for building structures and ways of choosing, finding, measuring and recording suitable prototypes; step by step construction of a cardboard building kit to illustrate the use of basic modelling tools and to explain essential procedures and techniques; using and modifying 'out-of-the-box' model buildings. Also explores the subtleties of making model railway buildings from scratch without the use of a kit, or anything more than hand-tools and a few sheets of suitable material, giving guidance on the appropriate use of texture and colour, and shows how walls, doors, windows, roofs and chimneys can be created, painted, detailed and finished off. Discusses the many aspects of lighting, including external lighting, such as street and platform lights, and the internal lighting of buildings, the problems they pose and how they can be resolved. Lighting can create dramatic effects with reference, for example, to the installation of illuminated ground signals in N-gauge using the latest 'surface-mount' technology, and by producing brilliantly illuminated back-lit sunsets. Superbly illustrated with 622 colour photographs.

Growing up in the suburbs of New York City on Long Island, I took a keen interest in all forms of transportation, especially trains. Afer graduating college, I worked as an industrial engineer for private sector corporations progressing to a middle management position within a Fortune 25 Company. In 1983 I accepted a job opportunity with the Long Island Rail Road as an industrial engineer. The LIRR is a government-subsidized agency that is part of a larger regional organization called the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. The LIRR had embarked on a very ambitious improvement program to upgrade their physical plants. This plan included the construction of a new railcar maintenance facility. The new facility was to replace their one hundred year old maintenance shops. I was hired to develop facility layouts for the most advanced rail car maintenance facility in the country. Friends and professional colleagues advised me to decline the job offer. However, I was a railroad buff and the opportunity to work for a railroad overshadowed any tredpidations. For decades, the LIRR had bore the brunt of adverse publicity. I would often consider much of the critisism as being too harsh and misguided. Not long after commencing employment, my perspective of the LIRR would be completely transformed. The inefficient and workplace abuses I witnessed first hand could only flourish in publicly subsidized environment. My job required me to observe and analyze the maintenance and repair operations performed on commuter railcars. My next step was identifying more efficient methods. I would then implement these improvements into the design of the new railcar maintenance facilities. I was met with a wall of resistence and non-cooperation from the unionized workforce. The LIRR had languished in decades of inefficient work habits supplemented with managerial coplacency and rampant nepotism. I would operate in a very hostile environment that had no incentive to embrace improvements. It would be in the better interests of the unions to maintain low productivity and therefore justify the gross overstaffing that existed for decades. Upon completion of developing the facility layouts, the next phase of my responsibilities involved coordination with design consultants hired by the LIRR. The consultants were responsible for the architectural and structural designs of the new maintenance facility. The consultans typically were selected based on political connections and not their level of expertise. The design phase was muddled with incompetence and waste. Inept project management would add tens of millions of dollars and lengthly delays to the construction phase of the project. Upon completion of construction, a new regime intent on maintaining the status quo within the LIRR assues control of the new maintenance facility. The new regime is not committed to capitalizing on the labor efficiencies offered by the new facility. Key positions are then filled with managers' intent in preserving the traditional inefficient ways of the LIRR. My story concludes with the agendas of the new regime and conflicts with those who were trying to transform the LIRR into a socially responsible institution. My trials and tribulations along with personal victories and setbacks are all the basis of my book.
