Ihood: Our GPS for Living is an inspirational book for those seeking the answer of why they are here. Based on theology and the social psychology theories of Erik Erikson and Abraham Maslow, it offers the reader an opportunity to examine one's purpose in life, asking: "Am I mainly committed to egoic behavior (self-saturation and materialism) or do I seek to be an instrument of love to others in my life (spiritual behavior)?
Unlike any other psychological theory, the premise is that if we are sufficiently 'grown-up' we can achieve expected levels of mature behavior throughout our life and become examples for our children and ultimately serve the world in our unique capacity. If we do not mature, we become 'stuck', unable to progress from egoic, self-serving behavior. In order to 'repair' our situation, we do a fundamental exploration of our life stages, from our birth to advanced age. We will then be able to find our truth and purpose, enabling us to enjoy genuine happiness in our daily lives and for the remainder of our life's journey.
After the reader has an understanding of IHood, they will be able to make decisions which will be of great benefit to themselves and mankind. They will be serving "others" and not exclusively their egoic interests. They will be part of the divine revolution to benefit mankind and change the world from "self" to "other" interests. They will be fulfilling their reason for being and answer the age old question "Why am I here?'
