Why are we really here? How can we be happy” These are questions asked by people from Millennials to Boomers. Crappy to Happy: Sacred Stories of Transformational Joy co-authored by Rev. Ariel Patricia and Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos answer these questions using true stories of Grit, Grace, and Love written by real people. It is a celebration of life, and you are all invited to participate through sympathy, empathy, and joy. James Redfield, the author of The Celestine Prophecy, wrote in the FOREWORD, “This book is enlightened not because it advocates some heady new theory or movement, but precisely because it doesn’t! It doesn’t sugarcoat problems, but does offer grounded solutions– The ‘art of the comeback.'” The contributors cover almost everything from relationships to health, grief, and loss, and the secrets to living an inspired journey through it all, sustained by an increase in this otherwise elusive state of joy. Contributing author Dr. Bernie Siegel wrote in his story Cycle of Life, “Bodies die, but spirits and consciousness survive and recycle. I know from my past-life experience that my wife Bobbie and I were not together for the first time in this life.” And, contributing author Rev. Temple Hayes addressed sexuality issues by writing, “United, we stand; divided, we are merely a distraction. This book is a seminar about emerging truths. When the heart is opened through dreams/prayer/meditation, the wounded chatter of our thoughts and emotions can be released, revealing a love-based, mystical peace and heart-opening joy. Laughter is contagious. It forms social bonds, and releases endorphins- our homemade Happy Pills to help us deal with the wounds of the world. So, find a box of tissues, open up the book, and prepare to cry and laugh ’till it heals.
