"As an artist I have a purpose to uplift the spirit. Art does this both for the creator and the audience. As a person living on this crazy planet where structures have been created that have nothing to do with uplifting us, and seem designed to shove us down, I have found that practicing the precepts in the book "The Way to Happiness", a common sense guide to living, gives me more power and releases me to further create. For this reason I offer you The Way to Happiness Booklet as my gift to you.
When I start feeling like my world is getting smaller, I flip through this book to see which precept I can shore up. Then I work on that and feel my world get larger again.
Written by L. Ron Hubbard, it fills the moral vacuum in an increasingly materialistic society, containing 21 basic principles that guide one to a better quality of life.
I only ask that you pay the postage.
Anyone can apply these to lead a happier life. "
