Rediscovering the Wisdom of Human Nature: How Civilization Destroys Happiness by Chet Shupe is a thought-provoking, sensational book that has strong spiritual and philosophical underpinnings. The book is a powerful call to humanity to return to the basic instinct that drives happiness: to do the things that make them feel good. In this book, the author explains how civilization has led humanity towards a self-destructive path, away from the one thing that everyone craves — happiness. He identifies a transition between the periods that humanity fully embraced nature and lived in the present moment and the time humankind started worrying about the future. This book will create a powerful awareness in readers, making them understand how civilization has given us a lot while alienating us from our very core values.
Chet Shupe’s writing is evocative, insightful, and filled with wisdom to ponder. I took copious notes while reading this book and had to stop to savor some of the things the author writes about. This is not the kind of book to read lightly, because it compels the reader to think about reality and purpose. Some of the thoughts expressed in this book should be written boldly in the human heart. The author’s take on emotional pain is powerful and he articulates on the reasons why we experience emotional pain and how to create an existence that takes us towards a path of fulfillment. This book shows readers the path to “end human blindness to the suffering that institutional life inflicts upon us all.” Rediscovering the Wisdom of Human Nature: How Civilization Destroys Happiness is a unique book that explores the impact of what we call civilization on our experience of happiness. Written in exciting prose and filled with strong and compelling examples, it is food for the soul, a must-read.
