This presents a compilation of ideas from broad spectrum. Using the Indian chakra system as a foundation, author Gudjon Bergmann has infused together ideas from Plato, Maslow, Gardner, Wilber and Robbins. The premise of the book is that we are all looking for balance and that the sometimes contradicting human needs can both help us and hinder in our attempt to create a balanced life. The Seven Human Needs are:1. The Need for Security2. The Need for Excitement and Creativity3. The Need for Individual Strength4. The Need for Love and Relationships5. The Need for Expression and Contribution6. The Need for Wisdom and Growth7. The Need for SpiritualityEach need is explained in a chapter that includes a contemplation, practical advice, examples of imbalance and positive affirmations. The book also provides chapters about how we can live in harmony, how we can apply the model of the seven human needs to everything from politics, to marketing, to relationships. There are also chapters about personal growth and ways to cultivate a personal practice based on this model. By applying the practical philosophy inside this book your life can become more creative, more spiritual and much more fulfilled.
