This book makes an important distinction between happiness and joy indicating that the latter creates a more positive state of mind than the former. This is the example used by his holiness: "The feeling of happiness is similar to a high, that can be felt during an event or when achieving a specific goal that we are pursuing, and therefore, happiness can feel like it is constantly eluding us. Thus the search for happiness can lead to long periods of resentment, frustration and low self esteem." Click on the title to read the full review.
This book is an invitation to dig deeper into the self and find out who you really are in order to create synchronicity between thought and action, inviting others to truly connect with us. When we wear masks we create dysfunction in our internal mechanism, so that when we want to smile it becomes forced, and when we truly want to love, we have forgotten how or what it means. When we fail to embrace the less perfect side of ourselves that has been forgotten and shamed, the stronger that side becomes and takes control of our actions forming a life of its own.
