Something for Everybody
on 6 April 2006
The little book of happiness should be owned by everyone. This tiny little book has a simple, non-cryptic message on every page and is perfect to dip into for a little inspiration.
Perfect for even non-spiritual people, this book suggests small and practical ways to change the way we think and interact with people to help us be happier in our every day life.
The Dalai Lama takes a non-dogmatic approach to showing us that we don't need to change our environment to achieve happiness, but by making small changes to the way we think inside, we can achieve true and lasting happiness, not just for ourselves but for the people around us and the world as a whole.
I'm not even the slightest bit spiritual, but after reading this book, I was inspired to read "The Art of Happiness", also by the Dalai Lama. By taking on-board the simple advice offered, I am no longer stressed-out all the time, and find life a lot easier to take.
I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone at all.
