This book explains that, to experience happiness you have to understand that the way most of us search for it does not work.

There are also people who should be miserable, but who live in happiness and joy. To be happy, you have to free your mind from the misconceptions about what it takes to be truly happy. That is what this book teaches. The practices in this book aim to help you understand the nature of unconditional happiness – what it is, what it is not, and where it comes from. With this knowledge, you will know where to look, and what to aim for. Then the book describes practices that help free the mind to discover the happiness within. The practices in this book come from many sources, including Buddhism, Yoga, Taoist philosophy, Christianity, and the latest findings of positive psychology. Although much of this book draws from ancient religions and belief systems, this book is not about religion or belief. It is about the experience of happiness. Learning to be happy is learning to find happiness inside of us. This book shows you how to do that.
