While millions have found A Course in Miracles life changing, others have been put off by its more esoteric, metaphysical aspects. Reverend Maria Felipe banishes those road blocks in her new book, Live Your Happy: Get Out of Your Own Way and Find the Love Within.
Live Your Happy is not a philosophic explanation of the Course; it is a practical guide for living it. The book includes real-world examples from Maria’s life and from her students’ experiences. In nine crystal-clear chapters, Maria shows readers how to get the “cuckoo voice of the ego” out of the way, connect with their “inner teacher,” and access personal power and strength. The book’s nine crystal clear chapters are:
- You are Not Bad and You Are Not Going to Hell
- You Are Not Who You Think You Are
- You Are Not Alone
- You Are the Love of Your Life
- You Are Now Ready to Practice the F Word
- You Are Fearless
- You Are Not Stuck
- You Are Getting Ready
- Living Your Happy
“Let’s be clear: Seeking and finding all the barriers we’ve built against love is not fun. We have to face feelings of sadness, abandonment, fear, and loss and take responsibility for them all,” writes Maria. “I will be your spiritual coach, but you will need to do the work. Right now all you need is what the Course calls ‘a little willingness,’ and the rest will follow. Declare now: I am willing. And then let’s do this!”
