You Are the Happiness You Seek
How may we find happiness and peace?
In this book, Rupert Spira distils the message of all the great religious and spiritual traditions into two essential truths: happiness is the very nature of our self or being, and we share our being with everyone and everything.
Drawing on numerous examples from his own experience, Spira demonstrates that to seek lasting happiness through objects, situations and relationships is destined for failure and disappointment, and skilfully guides the reader to recognise that we are already the happiness we seek.
This book is for anyone who yearns for lasting happiness and is open to the possibility that it is continuously available within ourselves, irrespective of our circumstances.
Could there be any greater discovery in life than to know that we are already that for which we long?

The most deeply profound and humble experiences, I've had in my life have been listening to/reading Rupert Spira. Rupert Spira is a very gentle soul. I was reading the first 20 something pages of the book in public. I had to stop reading as I had teary eyes many times while reading the book. Some of the pointers hit the core so profoundly that it ripped open the crack within the stream of thoughts, that my raw self was exposed. Great work, Rupert. Thank you for this. This book is something that earns a very special spot on my study desk.

This book is a gift to all those longing to experience the truth of their essential being. Rupert offers his latest work as the fruit of his own lived experience in which, over the last ten years, he has engaged in dialogue with large numbers of people who have experienced his writings, retreats, webinars and podcasts desiring an alternative to life limited by suffering and conflict, and who yearn to collaborate in establishing a world culture of peace, love, truth and beauty. This is a marvellous labor of love by Rupert, genuinely transformational, so please enjoy it!
