"Arguing that spirituality is not about religion but about living happily, this guidebook offers advice on the skills of the inner life - the mind and emotions - that are needed for a life of gladness. This examination discusses the requirements for happiness, explores their nature and shows that mastering a set of five of them leads to bliss. The exercises in this resource are offered to spiritual seekers as a path towards happiness and emphasise that personal elation is not caused by external events, but by mastering the skills of the inner life. This book shows how spirituality should be a vital human concern regardless of beliefs about the supernatural. Starting from the simple idea that everyone wants to live happily, it offers a powerful theory that supports many spiritual and self-development practices. In the five skills, it offers a pragmatic and flexible way to live spiritually allowing each person to develop a practice that suits their own needs. The book focuses on the idea of generating skills of the inner life rather than virtues or merit. This is a profound shift of paradigm, which removes moral anxiety and grounds both spirituality and ethical living in a fundamental choice to live happily. "
