The author asserts that life is simpler than we think it is, although it appears to be difficult and complex on the surface. Spirituality also helps us find out the same in different ways. Scott asserts that stress and anxiety could be fought if one determines to live life to the fullest every moment. Priorities in life matter a lot and we need to learn and grow perpetually to lead a calmer and more peaceful life. Love is the answer to everything and helps us to fight the bad, the ugly and the evil. A sense of deep self-awareness, puzzlingly, is the way for liberation. Integrity, honesty and sincerity are some of the most important virtues we need to follow for a fuller and more meaningful life, says the author. The Road Less Travelled was first published in the year 1978 and has been revised and reprinted several times as millions of copies have been sold across the globe. About M. Scott Peck M.
