Americans are great believers in self-help, and with good reason. There are more tools for personal growth today than ever before. Books, seminars, weekend workshops, and support groups of all kinds flourish in abundance. Cynics decry this as a symptom of narcissism, the navel-gazing of the Me Generation.

Q: No matter how much I am active about something, no matter how much I reach for others, no matter how I change, meditate, change the state of mind, no matter how much I work or contribute, everything in my material world remains the same.

Q: Honestly, I can’t imagine a more blessed life. Everything I’ve ever dreamed of, I asked, and here it is. I know that pain of the soul can manifest through illness and injury. It’s been a very long journey. Looking back, I can see why it all happened, when it happened and how it happened. It was all important to get me to where I am today. Oprah.com
