Hector and the Search for Happiness by Francois Lelord is a story of a man who goes on a search for what it means to be happy. He finds 23 things that he feels would make himself and others happy.
Along the way Hector learns many lessons and encounters many adventures. He learns to live in the moment and have fun. While this book could be considered childlike it does so in an entertaining way.
I feel like many would enjoy this book. It will definantly bring a smile in some areas and maybe a laugh here and there. I would recommend this to those who want a light read in the afternoon with a bit of philisophical thought.
This book is from my personal collection.
I will be reviewing the Chrysalis tarot deck and book soon. I am waiting for it to be sent out. I will also be reviewing the Crowley Thoth deck as well. I am excited to be able to review these for you. Please note that since these are Tarot decks I want to get to know them in order to give a proper review of them. I will review the Chrysalis deck first and then the book, and one on how they work together. I may put this at the end of each. I haven’t decided yet. Then I will review the Thoth Deck. :)
The Four Agreements Boxed Set by Don Miguel Ruiz consits of the following three books:
-The Four Agreements
-The Mastery of Love
-The Voice of Knowledge
The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom is about living impeccably. It introduces us to four Toltec Wisdom teachings, or four agreements. Each of the agreements builds on the one before it and they all work wonderfully together. If you follow these agreements then you will begin to see how they will change your life. The Four Agreements show us how to have inner peace in the midst of chaos, or to paraphrase the author being on heaven while truly in hell. This is a wonderful book to help you live truly and authentically. It will help you to awaken from the dream of this world.
The Mastery of Love shows us how to have healthy relationships with ourselves and others. It shows how we are only in charge of our half of the relationship and how to better ourselves in them. We are shown that we need to accept our significant others for who they are and not who we want them to be. This is a wonderful book to show us, sometimes through parable, about love.
The Voice of Knowledge teaches us about the voice we all hear that keeps us from love and judges us. We are shown ways to quiet this voice and transform it so that it works for us and not against us. This book is like one big parable with explanations along the way. I really enjoyed this book and how it shows us to overcome the voice we all hear.
I highly recommend any of these books individually but they are wonderful together in the box set. It’s all the wisdom one could need in one little box.
I acknowledge that I received this box set from Amber Allen Publishing free of charge in exchange for my honest and unbiased review of it.
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: A Pocketbook Guide to Fulfilling Your Dreams by Deepak Chopra is a wonderful little book that can be read in less than an hour.
I really enjoyed this book and liked getting a quick introduction to the Seven Spiritual Laws. I liked that there was also a small introduction to how to implement each one. However, since I have not read the full version I was left wanting more.
I guess I’m going to have to read the full version now. :) I recommend this book to those who want a quick introduction or a reminder of the spiritual laws.
I received this book as a gift this holiday season and it is from my personal collection.
I hope evertone had a wonderful holiday season!
I have a few books I will be reviewing shortly, among them are The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: A Pocketbook Guide by Deepack Chopra, The Alchemist by Paulo Cohelo, and Hector and the Search for Happiness by Francois Lelord.
Have a wonderful day!
