His agenda in this tome, which was first published in but didn't become a bestseller until , is to reconcile the psychoanalytic tradition with the conflicting cultural currents roiling the 70s. In the spirit of Me-Decade individualism and libertinism, he celebrates self-actualization as life's highest purpose and flirts with the notions of open marriage and therapeutic sex between patient and analyst. But because he is attuned to the nascent conservative backlash against the therapeutic worldview, Peck also cites Gospel passages, recruits psychotherapy to the cause of traditional religion he even convinces a patient to sign up for divinity school and insists that problems must be overcome through suffering, discipline and hard work with a therapist. Often departing from the cerebral and rationalistic bent of Freudian discourse for a mystical, Jungian tone more compatible with New Age spirituality, Peck writes of psychotherapy as an exercise in "love" and "spiritual growth," asserts that "our unconscious is God" and affirms his belief in miracles, reincarnation and telepathy. Peck's synthesis of such clashing elements he even throws in a little thermodynamics is held together by a warm and lucid discussion of psychiatric principles and moving accounts of his own patients' struggles and breakthroughs. Harmonizing psychoanalysis and spirituality, Christ and Buddha, Calvinist work ethic and interminable talking cures, this book is a touchstone of our contemporary religio-therapeutic culture.

Peck served in administrative posts in the government during his career as a psychotherapist, and later in private practice as a psychiatrist. For nearly two decades, he has devoted much of his time and financial resources to the work of the Foundation for Community Encouragement, a nonprofit organization that he and his wife, Lily, helped found in He lives in northwestern Connecticut.
Afterall, as Dr. Peck points out, it is only through the action that our desires manifest.
Similarly, our desire to improve our life is not going to improve our life just as long as there is no action involved. Desire is static, intangible, and in our heads.
Action is movement, real, and a flowering of the thoughts of our mind. Leave some thoughts in the comment section below on how you might take action from these thoughts in an attempt to live a more fulfilling life — you never know who you might inspire!
Good luck! It is for this reason that in chronic mental illness we stop growing, we become stuck. And without healing, the human spirit begins to shrivel. First, you cannot achieve them without suffering, and second, insofar as you do achieve them, you are likely to be called on to serve in ways more painful to you, or at least demanding of you, than you can now imagine.
Then why desire to evolve at all, you may ask. If you ask this question, perhaps you do not know enough of joy. By their openness, people dedicated to the truth live in the open, and through the exercise of their courage to live in the open, they become free from fear. The only way to be assured of being loved is to be a person worthy of love, and you cannot be a person worthy of love when your primary goal in life is to passively be loved.
We cannot forsake self-discipline and at the same time be disciplined in our care for another. We cannot be a source of strength unless we nurture our own strength. I believe that not only do self-love and love of others go hand in hand but that ultimately they are indistinguishable. It is judicious praising and judicious criticizing.
