There are lots of books that address how we should take care of ourselves, find calm, and enjoy happiness in a hectic work world. But few of those books apply the lessons of Buddhist thinking as resolution and guidance tools. These questions, though found in the modern day, are actually the core of all Buddhas teachings: impermanence, suffering, and the quest for happiness (freedom from suffering). This makes Buddha the kind of consultant or coach we need today in the workplace. Following in the tradition of the authors' first best seller, this work goes on to explore and answer 101 dilemmas that we encounter at work, with topics that include time management, goal-setting, conflict, job dissatisfaction, unemployment, and even workplace trysts. The authors emphasize practical learning and coping, not esoteric insights or metaphysics, applying concrete solutions from Buddhist teachings to real problems in easily digestible chunks.

"To keep a lamp burning, we have to put oil in it." - Mother Teresa. This simple quote says it all. Do you put oil in your own lamp? Take care of yourself, you have heard it before, but are you doing it? This audiobook will inspire you to take care of yourself to live a better life. Oil for Your Lamp is the perfect audiobook for women who want to glow, sparkle and shine! Mother Teresa said, "To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it." Most women are so busy filling the lamps of the people they love that they let their own lamps run low. They spend so much time and energy taking care of their children, husbands, aging parents, friends, neighbors, bosses, coworkers, and others, that they often neglect themselves.

Written by Femail Creations catalog founder Lisa Hammond and inspirational author, poet, and storyteller BJ Gallagher, this wonderful new audiobook speaks to women of all ages, from all walks of life. Here at Simple Truths, we celebrate women who light up the world - and we want to lovingly remind them to keep their own lamps filled. Oil for Your Lamp is the perfect audiobook for women who want to glow, sparkle, shine, and dazzle!
