Forgiveness is the key to happiness--but how do you actually do it? When we begin to practice forgiveness, the world becomes a better place to live. Forgiveness is essential to releasing fear and living in peace. In fact, forgiveness is the single most important thing we can do to create a life of love and happiness. Without it, we are destined to live in hurt, anger and upset. With it, all the gifts and miracles of God's love flow into our lives. If you've tried to forgive in the past and been unable to, you're not alone. Forgiveness is not always an easy task, and most of us have no real idea of how to go about it anyway. Although each of the world's important religions and spiritual pathways agrees that forgiveness is essential, there is very little practical information out there about how to actually forgive. Forgiveness is the dirty little secret of Christians, spiritual people, and truth seekers everywhere. We all nod our heads and agree that forgiveness is important, but when it comes right down to it, most of us have no idea how to really do it. Forgiveness is actually an easy and pleasurable process once you understand it. Forgiveness Is the Key to Happiness gives you the essential tools you need to forgive anyone, from the smallest of affronts to the really huge betrayals and damage we all experience at least occasionally in our lives.

A self-help classic since 1935, this book will help you unlock the secrets to a happy and rewarding life! What is wrong with your thinking? Do you worry about the future-your health, your family, your finances? Do you take life too seriously? Do you lack confidence in yourself and find it difficult to make decisions? In this little volume Harold Sherman answers these questions and many more. Your Key to Happiness is a working manual of creative principles which show you how to operate the great creative power within you, your Subconscious Mind, in order that you may inherit the good things of earth-Health, Happiness and Prosperity. When you know how to control the actions of your Subconcious Mind you are able to solve your problems, overcome your worries and assume a new and optimistic attitude toward life, thus attracting better conditions to yourself. This great Law of Mind-the conviction that "the Kingdom of God is within you"-is older than Creation. But until you can consciously control the action of your Subconscious Mind you may, unwittingly, be operating it against yourself. As a result you are fundamentally responsible for the troubles that beset you. Harold Sherman gives you a definite method by which the Key to Your Inner Self can open to you a vast reservoir of creative power-power you may never have suspected exists within you. Your Key to Happiness was Harold Sherman's first self-help book and it enjoyed many printings through the years. Endorsements: "Harold Sherman has a sound philosophy and understanding of life and people."-Dr. Norman Vincent Peale "I can wholeheartedly well recommend Harold Sherman's books to all who are in search of self-development." -Dr. Ernest Holmes, author of Science of Mind "Harold Sherman gives you the keys to Universal Power. He opens up areas in your consciousness and reveals secret powers you never dreamed you had." -Rev. Paul Martin Brunet, author of Master Meditations for Life, Health, Success
Here it is, the answer to happiness all wrapped up in one little word.....Acceptance. When you find “Acceptance” in the world that you live in, you will also find a contentment that you have never known and the happiness that you longed for. For happiness isn’t hard to find if you know where to look. It is not in another person, or belongings but it is in the way you perceive the world, your acceptance of the variables in your life and your ability to change the things you can and accept the things you cannot. The key to Happiness is here, all you have to do is unlock it!
Loving, The Key to Happiness and Blessings is really three books in one. Each one can individually bring happiness and blessings into the life of the reader. The first book is chapter one and two. Chapter one tells us who God says we should love if we are one of his children. Because of what God and Jesus did in loving us, chapter two teaches what the Bible says are the prerequisites and requirements for becoming one of Gods children and having the Holy Spirit to help us do what is in chapter one. If we havent met all those prerequisites and requirements already, we can believe and act on them and become one of Gods children for the greatest happiness and blessing of our life time. The second book, chapters three through seven, focuses on how we can obtain happiness and blessings by following what the Bible teaches us on how we can love God, our neighbors, our brothers and sisters in Christ, and everyone includingyes, even our enemies. The third book, chapter eight, tells how we obtain happiness and blessings as we equip ourselves for loving living through Bible study and prayer. It teaches us the importance of each one separately and how to tie the two together with a daily quiet time with God. These three books combine to help the reader obtain the greatest happiness and blessings.
From a young age, author Tamar Salas realized that the acceptance of the pain of adults around her was far greater than the acceptance of living a life of abundance and lasting happiness. And in growing up, she's learned that just as we are creators of our own happiness, we are also the perpetrators and prolonging creators of our own pain and suffering. In The Key to Happiness, she describes common presenting issues and frames of mind that prevent us from achieving internal lasting happiness and personal fulfillment: - belief there is a shortcut to happiness; - why being busy is stealing our happiness; - the "time will heal" frame of mind; and - the "not now-I'm going through something" way of thinking. Salas answers the questions of why we leave happiness unattended until we find ourselves in trouble again, and how do we make happiness last. In this guide, she shows the key to happiness revolves around learning to share unconditionally, learning to love ourselves, coming to understand love, and learning to nurture one another and walk side by side without prolonging our personal suffering.
