Laziness Does Not Exist,
The “Laziness Lie” has been around ever since the Puritans insisted that hard work was the way to achieve success and please God. Since then, this idea has only become more commonplace. Devon Price shares research that shows that people today are doing more work than ever before yet still feel like they are not doing enough. Price encourages readers to let go of the guilt we have been taught to feel if we fail to meet the impossible work expectations that perpetuate in our society. Instead, he inspires readers to become more connected and respectful of their limitations and embrace doing enough instead of always needing to do more.

The Two Hands of God: The Myths of Polarity,
We first learn about opposites in early childhood; however, polarity is a very complex concept that is a fundamental core of life itself. Alan Watts takes readers on a journey through time with a compilation of myths and mythical images scarcely studied by modern mystics and scholars that accurately portray the concept of polarity. While the nature of polarity can be difficult to explain with words, this anthology provided by Watts helps readers to understand the concept itself and find the deeper meaning underneath it all that transcends duality.
