A better sort of self-help book

Wings of Joy by Sri Chinmoy. He's a very interesting teacher. He makes me think he's half Buddhist, half Quaker. I took a meditation course from a student of his. This is not the stuff you'd want if you consider yourself a cynic and a better person because of it.

For example, I was just reading his thoughts on the nature of humility: "Humility means giving joy to others. Here on earth we want to get joy. But how do we get joy? Real joy we get from self-giving, not by possessing or showing our own supremacy. When we allow others to get joy, then we feel that our own joy is more complete, more perfect, more divine. By making others feel that they are either equally important or more important, we show our true humility."

If you can't see the relevance, just think about how you feel when you can answer someone's guestion here or lend some support on a problem.
