"With spiritual happiness, you are not waiting to be rich before you can be happy, or to find the right person to be happy, or to have more friends to be happy. You don't need to look different to be spiritually happy; nor do you have to heal all your flaws to be spiritually happy. With spiritual happiness, you can look at the world with realistic eyes -- seeing, experiencing, and responding to all the muddled mess that life can sometimes seem to be. Yet, in the depths of your being, you'll know a peacefulness and contentment that never fades, even while the world may be crashing down around you."

I highly recommend this book if you are interested in spiritual growth. If you liked Wayne Dyer's book "The Power of Intention"

then you will love Secrets of Spiritual Happiness. This book is full of practical wisdom to advance your life experience. Sharon Janis comes off as a true spiritual guide. You can open this book at any place and find words of wisdom. For me that is the true measure of a great book.

I have two of her books and consider them as near textbooks on the teachers and teachings of those who have made spirit quests and those who are embarking upon their own. She's totally non-judgemental and presents everything in a reverential & understandable way, that's not over-the-top. This one lets us join her as she is questioning everything and not at ease with her answers, thusfar; but, not agnostic, just wanting "truth"..and willing to go all out to find her own truth. She's been involved in Hollywood productions and I'n surprised that she's not made her own movie. I suspect she's not past the first few chapters, in living her life's story out, yet. This might be considered the "introduction" to it.
Next, get her wonderful "textbook"..Spirituality for Dummies. If you're at all "into" this sort of spiritual examination, it's essential.

This is a great book to consider when wanting to feel better or maintain a good mood. The author greatly inspires the reader through well-written "articles", and I personally find much of the content credible. The author is also humble and is sensitive to the fact that different people will have different ideas about the Great Truths. Thus, readers are free to disagree with the opinions expressed.

However, there are three reasons I cannot give this book a perfect rating:

1) I think the author could have attempted to better explain the mechanics and science behind gaining happiness. This would have made the book even more credible. For example, I might have found the content of the book to be considerably less credible were it not for personal experience.

2) There are central terms in the book that are not defined or that do not seem to be explained.

3) The author could have made references (at least clearer references) to the big picture concerning religion, philosophy, and spirituality, in order to make readers understand how the author's ideas are consistent with (or inconsistent with) other existing theories.

All of my objections could be criticized, given that the book is possibly intended to be "an easy read" that should steer clear of complications. However, when doing something as important as presenting a normative ethical theory, which can certainly have great impact on people's lives, I believe it is just fair to expect a more substantial background in the introduction of the book, which covers the big picture and possibly an explanation to why the book will not meet the expectations of good philosophy (see points (1) and (2))...

... Then again, I will humble myself and say that I might have a more analytical/philosophical approach to spiritual issues than does Sharon Janis, and that it is ultimately a question of highly subjective values that make me think the book is somewhat lacking.
