Publisher's Summary

The history of the search for happiness is one of philosophical discussion going back to ancient times. Many philosophers have had views on happiness from at least the Greek’s time. The pursuit of happiness is even written into the US Declaration of Independence as a right of every individual. Many wise people believe that an individual’s search for true happiness should be the highest goal in one’s life.

In this audiobook, we review the history of the search for happiness. This is followed by trying to define what happiness is - and is not. Then, there are several chapters on illusions in our lives and how these impeded finding true happiness. Finally, a spiritual approach is provided to help the listeners in their own search for true happiness.

Interesting

I devoured this cute, easy-to-read book in one sitting. Very positive and uplifting. It's delightfully flavored with A Course in Miracles--meaning two prime points: We need not look outside of ourselves for peace and happiness, and our thoughts create the world we live in. The book was written and received in love.

Recommended To All

I WHOLE-HEARTEDLY recommend this book to everyone! It is easy to understand and a wonderful start to living a life full of love and gratitude. I cannot express enough how much this book has helped me remember to choose peace and love. If you are wondering "how to.." this book will provide you several easy-to-follow practices that can release fear, guilt and the baggage we may be holding onto. Maria presents herself in such a raw and powerful way which is both relatable and inspiring.

Great Help

This book is a well-written book with excellent exercises at the end of each chapter. The exercises did help me to deepen my intellectual understanding of the book through experience. Looking forward to discovering more ways to live in peace with forgiveness and removing any blocks to love. This book will be a great guide for anyone on a spiritual journey to just be happier and more peaceful in life.

Helpful

I am just finishing this gem of a book now. I love it. Maria has written from the heart and I feel blessed to learn her insights from A Course in Miracles. I have to admit when it arrived I thought to myself- this is a short book- don't be fooled it packs a powerful punch and I am taking my time and cherishing every word. I look forward to reading even more from her. Thank you Martin!

Be Happy

This is a work that rings of Truth with modern relevance for these spiritual times & moves the reader through a process of forgiveness that is deeply healing and transformative. Buy it, read it & if given the chance, work with her. You won’t regret it for you to do!

Happiness

I love this book so much! Martin explains the uncompromising truth of A Course in Miracles in a fun, lighthearted way. It opened my eyes to a lot that I wasn't willing to see & I realized just how small I've been playing.
