In this audiobook Abbot Christopher turns to monastic wisdom to offer answers, and to explain that in essence happiness is a gift not an achievement, the fruit of giving and receiving blessings. Everybody is searching for happiness but not everybody knows how to find it. In modern Britain, more and more people say that their life is too materialistic and superficial, which leads to a feeling of dissatisfaction.

I found this book exciting. It is rich in explanations and deep in understanding. I also bought a hard copy and on reading it, it furthered my appreciation of the richness of the author. I listen to it again and again.

The Benedictine Order has a history and it's members have a discipline moulded to the individual as well as the community. Would that more could assess the real spirituality of Dom Jamieson and his order.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an alternative to the rush and stress of today's living.
