From the Author

That which every one of us is looking for in this world is exactly the same thing. Every Being, even the animal, is looking for it. And what is it that we are all looking for? Happiness with no sorrow! A continuous state of happiness with no taint whatsoever of sorrow. Now, if this be the Goal, why is it the Goal? The reason why it is the Goal is because imperturbable happiness is our very basic nature!, And what is imperturbable happiness? Complete and total freedom, and that is freedom to do or not to do anything and everything. This is the real natural state, before, we encumber it with limitations.

Format: Paperback
HAPPINESS IS FREE is one of those amazing books that you either take at face value as something that will change your life forever -- or discount as "too good to be true." It's a credit to the author, Hale Dwoskin, that this book succeeds in convincing me that when one lives in accordance with the principles outlined in this small volume, one can reap phenomenal rewards.
HAPPINESS IS FREE is a seven week course based on the Sedona method teachings of Lester Levenson. Readers are advised to carefully follow the suggestions of the book to read slowly, practice using the new ideas, and document daily experiences in a journal in order to allow the seemingly simple lessons to take root in the unconscious. This book reminds you that you are already a joyous spiritual being who is totally loved and loving -- and that your key to happiness is to remember and fully access this truth!
The main principle described in HAPPINESS IS FREE is that true happiness comes from freeing oneself from the grips of one's ego. The bulk of the book is devoted to helping you do just that -- break free of the death-grip that your ego has on your life at this very moment. A diary of progress is included in this book, along with numerous aphorisms designed as affirmations of living a spiritual life and letting go of ego-fixations.
What I like best about HAPPINESS IS FREE is the way it describes what it feels like to live a spiritual life. I was very glad to read the experiences that Lester Levenson shares in the beginning of this book, such as the way people offered him everything he needed with great delight no matter where he went! Those who have difficulty believing that such things could happen will likely not enjoy this book as much as those who already know that such things are not only possible, but can become much more prevalent in one's life. I highly recommend this book to all spiritual seekers who are committed to changing their beliefs and radically improving their lives.

The answer to the above question should tell you whether this book is for you or not.
If you're here, reading this, because you were drawn by a feeling of lack in your life and a deep desire to bring meaning, order, and happiness into it, then I strongly urge you to seriously consider getting this book. I don't guarantee that this book will give you all the answers you want. No book will or can do that because the answers are in you, not in any outside source.
This is a powerfully written book that can stimulate your mind so that it's receptive to your inward awareness, that is if you will let it.
However, there are many who say they are seeking happiness, but aren't willing to open themselves up for it. Others are on a path which is already enriching them. And of course there are those who block their minds against any possibility of spiritual awakening. If you fall in any of those three categories, you're less likely to gain much value. However, those on a path, even one which is fulfilling them, may well find good supplemental material here. I, for instance, was especially impressed by a discussion in the second session. Many of us have experienced a barrage of challenges shortly after we fitst start growing spiritually. I've read several explanations of why this occurs, but the discussion in this book gave me a better understanding than I previously had.
And so I give it four stars, realizing that there are many who just plain will not be receptive to the ideas here. But for those who are receptive, this is indeed a five star book.
If you do decide to read this book, be fair and give it a full chance to benefit you. The chapters are so arranged so that you can read and study one each week for a total of seven weeks.

If you are ready to take full responsibility for your life and bring it to a much higher level of existence, this is the book for you. It is wonderfully written in sessions to read weekly, with practical exercises that would allow you to actually experience the wisdom of its content. Sometimes the lesson seems to have been written just for me, at the right time. Reading the book with the family gives us tremendous strenght and valuable insights to deal with our life situations of the moment. The practice of every session brings personal growth and transformation of consciousness. I have experienced a significant improvement in que quality of my life in general, and at home and at work in particular. This book it's not only about happiness but, by teaching us how to get rid of our own limitations and self sabotaging beliefs and behaviors, we can find profound peace and real freedom. It complements beautifully the work of "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle.

While I am a spiritually-oriented psychotherapist whose middle name is "Personal Growth," I realized reading this book that the words "happiness," "peace" and "joy" are still somewhat ideal abstractions for me-or, worse-Hallmark fare. It is a tribute to the Dwoskin/Levenson material that halfway through the book, I thought: Happiness is Real...Peace and Joy is Real-and I have been making it harder than it is.
Many of us know by now that True Self is good-Ego is not so good. This is the first book I've seen that addresses this without veering into the too abstract or too conventional. Thinking about Ego in terms of our addiction to Problem and it's flipside, Problem-Solving, was illuminating to me, and seems to hold the key for achieving the ever-illusive state of relaxation that seems to be the background problem for all of us.
Rarely does a book offer such a user-friendly "how-to," in the dismantling-the-ego-department. I wouldn't have thought it was possible, but the material shared here, from what the authors call The Sedona Method, truly operationalizes happiness. To me this is genius.
