Book announcement: “Happiness is the Truth”

cover - happiness is the truth

Every year, I start over.

It’s just my New Years’ tradition.

This year, a big part of that starting over includes renewing my commitment to spiritual practices. And so, if you’re doing the same, I’d like to humbly suggest one source of deep (I think!) spiritual ideas and, maybe, inspiration: my book, Happiness is the Truth: A Spiritual Manifesto.

Here’s what the book is all about: In under 100 pages, I give my personal take on what being spiritual means to me–and what it doesn’t. I talk about:

  • My long history as an Evangelical Christian and why I no longer subscribe to that belief system,
  • The experiences I’ve had that convinced me that a spiritual realm does exist,
  • The importance of religious individuality, and
  • How to choose a belief system and spiritual practices that work for you.

I sum up the manifesto by arguing that ultimate truth for you is whatever makes you truly happy and will help you accomplish your unique and perfect goals for this complex, beautiful life.

Here are the chapter titles:

  1. Spirituality is good.
  2. Life is a game.
  3. There are no rules.
  4. Absolutes are fine. Certainty is not.
  5. People are holy.
  6. We have power.
  7. Happiness is the truth.

The book is available in printed or ebook form on Amazon.com here.

Also, just in case you wanted to buy the ebook version but don’t own a Kindle, you can download a desktop reader from Amazon for free.
