Feeling Great [Peter Vegso]

Feeling great is not something that can be bottled and bought. It does not come from where we live, what we drive, or who we know. It’s not about having a good time for a few hours, or about having money to spend. It’s about putting your life in order and remembering who you really are—an authentic way of living from the inside that will sustain you through life’s challenges.

In this treasure of a book, built on the timeless spiritual teachings of visionary Dadi Janki, you will learn the precepts for feeling great and the three keys that unlock the ability to attain it. Parables and examples further illuminate this wisdom. Coauthors Peter Vegso and Kelly Johnson reveal practical applications to help you navigate and overcome the sticking points we all encounter in our hectic, overscheduled lives.

Now is the time to start feeling great—not as a temporary indulgence, but as a lasting state of being. This uplifting book shows you how easy it can be.

My thoughts on the book: After reading the summary, I thought it would be a useful read. In a world that values being loud and doing everything super quickly, it was refreshing to read a book advocating for quietness, introspection and mindfulness as keys to a happy, content life.

Our society always urges us to purchase for more material stuff, among other superficial things. I was quite relieved to find a book that put “contentment” back in the spotlight. On the down side, I was a bit put off by the introductory note that was permeated with religious comments and references to God. I was afraid that this aspect would be too present throughout the book. In a way, it was recurring. It is obvious that religion is a major part of the author’s life, but it somehow contributed to making those who aren’t religious a bit excluded from the overall philosophy. Not everyone believes in a divine entity. That being said, you can still apply some of the advice provided in the book.

Overall, it’s an interesting, easy read that can certainly help you focus on the positive side of life.
