5.0 out of 5 stars An Antidote to Modern Life!, 1 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Finding Happiness: Monastic Steps For A Fulfilling Life (Hardcover)
Finding Happiness is one of those rare gems of a book that serenely guides you through the trials of modern day life. Father Jamison takes the reader hand in hand to genuine inner joy. "Are monks happy?" His reply, "They are not unhappy." That grabbed me straight away, along with his question about having a happy death! Having never thought about death being happy, on the rare occasions I think about death. I realised that to have a happy death, equates to having a happy and fulfilled life.

With his profound insights, and effective communication, this book remarkably mirrors humanities embedded condition. With such elegance we are guided through many of the reasons that make us unhappy.

Ultimately the dark clouds dissipate, opening the door to inner happiness, if you so choose.

This book is of a solid foundation to make a significant change in your life. Its timing in this troubled era is perfect.
