Stop Seeking Happiness – Just Get Out of Its Way!
Happiness is our natural state, for each of us and for humanity as a whole, argues John Izzo. But that happiness is being stolen by insidious mental patterns that he depicts as thieves: control, conceit, coveting, consumption, and comfort. He discovered these thieves as he sought the true source of happiness during a year-long sabbatical, walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain and living in the Andes of Peru.
John describes the disguises these thieves wear, the tools they use to break into our hearts, and how to lock them out once and for all. He also shows how these same thieves of personal happiness are destroying society as well. This will help us all discover, develop, and defend the happiness that is our true nature while creating a world we all want to live in!
