‘The universe owes us nothing except for the Gift of Life and Luck’ By Sicebise Msengana

Do you struggle to find meaning in life? Are you feeling powerless and at the mercy of circumstances in your life? What if The Universe Owes us Nothing Except For the Gift of Life and Luck could motivate you to take responsibility for your life and live a life of purpose, happiness and freedom in spite of current painful situations in your life? Does it sound too good to be true?

Well, it’s not. Come along for a bumpy, yet a realistic ride and discover what lies ahead.

The Universe Owes us Nothing Except For the Gift of Life and Luck tells human accomplishment and tragedy from an African-centred perspective. This book comes with personal and historic overview of how things are the way they are and what we need to do to create a better world for the future generations.

From either the scholar to those who spend their lives searching for answers to some of life’s difficult questions: the “Why me?” and “Why does the world have little love and too much hate, suffering and pain?” questions.

Chapter by chapter with expert analysis and in-depth research, this book takes you through all the vital aspects and seeks to dispels common myths about personal happiness, freedom, problems in Africa and the world in general. Human evolution didn’t happen through a peaceful, static and monolithic process. It took countless sacrifices, bloodshed, failures, and successes which influenced the world we live in.
