Since time immemorial, human beings have been engaged in the pursuit of happiness. In the Declaration of Independence, our Founding Fathers even declared it to be one of our inalienable rights. Yet for many of us, the actual achievement of happiness has proven elusive. This inspiring guide shows you that it doesn?t have to be.Using simple, accessible language and clear examples, this wellspring of wisdom illustrates that true happiness is attainable when we stop looking outside ourselves for the source. Instead, happiness can be found within us, when we exercise our unique human abilities such as gratitude, humility, compassion, and generosity that are the components of the human spirit. Combining ancient wisdom and modern psychology, it shows us that when we reconnect with our spiritual selves, we correct the deficiency of spirituality that many of us experience on a daily basis. And without a fully realized spiritual life, we cannot be whole.More than a handbook for living a happier life, this is a treasure map that leads you beyond self-centered contentment to actualizing your full potential as a human being. It teaches you that true happiness is not just being free from misery and enjoying the pleasures of life. True happiness comes when you choose?again and again?to be the best person you can be.
