The Happiness Club and Choices

It thrills me to hear from readers that they enjoyed Choices and Illusions. It is a real double pleasure when someone you admire and respect as already having it all finds your work helpful. Such is the case with Lionel Ketchian, founder of the Happiness Club. His work spans over two decades and has aided countless individuals in finding happiness. This is what Lionel recently wrote about Choices and Illusions.

I have read the book, loved it and recommend it. I have also written some articles about it that were published in the newspapers. Here’s a quote:

I recommend reading Eldon Taylor's book, Choices and Illusions. Reading Eldon's book has given me a new dimension to my life. I have been practicing forgiveness for over twenty years. This book has shown me a new pathway to freedom and happiness. That pathway is to let go of blaming others, no matter what.

In expanding my new practice, I have not only found liberation by letting go of blaming others, but I have also realized that I don't have to blame myself in the process.

I want to state a powerful and accurate quote from Choices and Illusions: "When you forgive, you essentially undo the ability to blame. If there is nothing to blame, then you are in charge of your response to outside stimuli. There is less room for anger without blame. There is less to fear when your 're empowered." The concept of giving up blame leads to a feeling of unconditional love for others. This is an important way to feel more like you are a contributing member of the human race. You begin to feel like you fit into the human family. You feel that you are important to the world, and the world returns the favor, by allowing you to experience being connected to others. You have joined the human family. You belong to it and it belongs to you.

Eldon shows you that you do not arrive at this state by your thinking but rather by becoming aware of your beliefs. Only by experiencing this powerful state can we break through our illusions and empower ourselves and thereby the world.

Happiness is a decision. Happiness is intentional and once you have decided that being happy is the way you want to choose to live, you can, once you understand your illusions. Eventually, with the practice of creating the proper thinking, you will use choiceless awareness to make happiness a living part of you.

Sharing Love, Peace and Happiness with you,
Lionel Ketchian
Founder of the Happiness Club
