Your Journey to Happiness
How To Be Happy
level of SI are huge. That is where true lasting and deep happiness can be found.
I will show you how to begin to develop Spiritual Intelligence by practising critical behaviours such as
listening to your intuition, meditation, living in the moment, and feeling love and compassion for yourself
and others. For me, SI is the awakening of the missing piece of most people, which addresses the ache
that we feel that there must be ‘more to life than this’. It has nothing to do with any religion, guru or
deity. Rather, it is about living life at the level where we appear to be connected with each other, and to
be at one with, and an integral part of the universe. Some describe SI as ‘Insight’, or ‘Awareness’, and
Buddhists describe the SI goal as “Enlightenment”. What’s for sure is that ,whatever you call it,
Enlightenment is very rarely a sudden and total transformation-a finishing line that we cross and suddenly
are perfectly spiritual people. It’s not a place that you arrive at but a new way of looking at things, and a
new way of seeing things .
My thinking has been influence by many (so called) Self Help books and I’ve found that actually there is a
great deal of common ground and although the language and terms may differ they are essentially saying
similar things. All that stuff in the self help books does work!
You will also find that I have been influenced a lot by Buddhist thinking. It is worth reflecting that
Buddhism emerged around 2500 years ago so when we are tempted to imagine that our problems and
situations are new, in truth, much of what is covered in the principles in my guide was understood a very
long time ago. I would also emphasise that Buddhism is not considered to be a traditional ‘religion’ , but
rather as a philosophy and it is absolutely NOT necessary to be a Buddhist to adopt the principles I set out
- or to be religious or believe in any deity .
I invite you to seriously consider embarking on a journey of practising Emotional and Spiritual Intelligence,
knowing that doing so WILL lead you to personal Happiness. To be successful you will need to focus on
where you are going and not dwell on where you have come from. I understand that you may currently
be feeling unhappy, discontented and disappointed – but believe me you are not alone. Modern western
culture is leading vast numbers into the unhappiness trap.
The rewards for following this journey will be well worth the effort. Make no mistake, life can be so
rewarding and joyful all the time. Life is sweet. Life is a privilege. If
you can free yourself from your ego and the delusions of your mind
then you can skip and dance through life with the excitement and
curiosity of a child, savouring every moment, full of love and
compassion for yourself and those around you, really seeing the
beauty that is all around us.
