About

My name is Evelyn Garcia and I am writing you on behalf of The Way To Happiness Foundation. The Way To Happiness is a non-denominational movement reversing the decline and restoring to man, his integrity and trust. Comprised of 21 principles, The Way To Happiness is a moral code based wholly on common sense. More than 70 million copies of The Way To Happiness booklet have been distributed in over 130 countries. Because it is non-religious in nature it can be used as a tool to re-introduce moral values into the Court system, without violating the codes and laws which separate Church and State.

The Way To Happiness booklet educates readers worldwide with a non-religious code which guides one to a better quality of life, restoring and nourishing those qualities such as tolerance, respect and forgiveness, which have been revered through the centuries. These principles can be followed by anyone of any race color or creed.

The Way To Happiness principles have been successfully used to help improve family relations, increase tolerance in the workplace and even in the prison system which has noted a remarkable drop in the recidivism of offenders who have completed the program. The principles work to restore the bonds that unite mankind.

For more information you may visit the foundation's website www.thewaytohappiness.org. For reservations or questions please contact Evelyn Garcia at 786-873-7718. I look forward to meeting with you and assisting you to guide people towards real solutions to their problems.

Description

The Way To Happiness: Because your survival is important to me.

Happiness: N. A condition or state of well being, contentment, pleasure, joyful, untroubled existence, the reaction to having nice things happen to one.

If one does not survive, no joy and no happiness are obtainable.

Trying to survive in a chaotic (1) ,dishonest and generally immoral (2) society is difficult.

Any individual seeks to obtain from life what pleasure and freedom from pain that they can.

Your own survival can be threatened by the bad actions of others around you.

Your own happiness can be turned to tragedy and sorrow by the dishonesty and misconduct of others.

I am sure you can think of this actually happening. Such wrongs reduce one's survival and impair one's happiness.

You are important to other people. You are listened to. You can influence others.

The happiness or unhappiness of others you could name is important to you.

Without too much trouble, using this book, you can help them survive and lead happier lives.

While no one can guarantee that anyone else can be happy, their chances of survival and happiness can be improved. And with theirs, yours will be.

It is in your power to point the way to a less dangerous and happier life.
