Item Description...
Why is it that despite our best efforts, many of us remain fundamentally unhappy and unfulfilled in our lives? In this provocative and inspiring book, David Richo distills thirty years of experience as a therapist to explain the underlying roots of unhappiness--and the surprising secret to finding freedom and fulfillment.
There are certain facts of life that we cannot change--the unavoidable "givens" of human existence: (1) everything changes and ends, (2) things do not always go according to plan, (3) life is not always fair, (4) pain is a part of life, and (5) people are not loving and loyal all the time. Richo shows us that by dropping our deep-seated resistance to these givens, we can find liberation and discover the true richness that life has to offer. Blending Western psychology and Eastern spirituality, including practical exercises, Richo shows us how to open up to our lives--including to what is frightening, painful, or disappointing--and discover our greatest gifts.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Problem with ordering  Nov 16, 2008
When I ordered the above book online I thought I bought one new copy. After it was delivered I also received another hard cover copy from someone in California. I'm not sure why that happened and at this point what to do about it.

The book itself was an interesting read and offered some insight into one's life activities.
Self Awareness Book  Nov 12, 2008
The Five Things We Cannot Change: And the Happiness We Find by Embracing Them by David Richo is a marvelous narrative about the "5 Universal Truths" that occur in all lives. David Richo uses his extensive knowledge of eastern teachings as well as western philosophies to construct a "how to" guide on dealing with these truths.

It is well worth the time and money spent for this insightful journey through life's inevitabilities.
Awesome perspective  Aug 26, 2008
I read this book and then let my friends read it. It is a great book full of perspectives contradictory to 21st century American thought. It is full of truths which will bring an individual pathways to peace.
A book full of insight  Jul 30, 2008
Outstanding work offering insight into some of life's "misconceptions". David Richo not only constructs his work on these insights but also guides us to embrace issues that might previously been seen as "life's disappointments". He portrays his "five givens" as challenges that we will face and introduces the rather radical approach that they are not negatives. He shows that by resisting these "givens" we set ourselves up for sorrow, disappointment, and frustration. He walks us through a process of learning how to truly accept and embrace them as necessary for our personal quest for growth and happiness. He mixes modern psychology and Eastern spirituality in order to teach the reader how to find fulfillment and joy by accepting concepts that we often deny and oppose.
The only book I have ever underlined on almost every page  Jul 12, 2008
I'm not one to read self-help or psychological tomes but I'm going through a very painful surprise divorce and am seeking positive healing wherever I can. Dave Richo's book is one that puts a loving spin on all the challenges of life. Never saying it will be easy but that our higher powers and/or friend support and/or therapists will be there to help us get through to the benefits awaiting on the other side of the pain. The constant suggestions of peaceful, non-retributive, loving and compassionate thoughts and centering beliefs helped me know that I have a better opportunity to be the person I want to be now that this pain has 'pushed me through the door' to actualize my life.

I am buying several copies of the book to share with my friends and adult children so that they too have the chance to be reminded that love, compassion, peace, and caring are the real meaningful gifts we can share with ourselves and others. I hope you'll read this book, too, and find the helpful tools for getting through challenges and turning them into that which makes us stronger and potentially happier.
