What if you could teach your children seven lessons that would help them on their way to a happy and successful life? Deepak Chopra’s On My Way to a Happy Life is written for that purpose. The ideas in this book are the timeless laws of the universe, presented in the simplest of terms for young children. When kids understand the way the world works from a spiritual point of view, it makes it easier for them to navigate through it with joy and love and happiness, Chopra believes.
Chopra’s bestselling books on a variety of topics have been translated into 35 languages. His lectures, seminars, and learning materials are immensely popular, as are his television specials for PBS. In addition, he has founded his own medical centre called the Chopra Center for Well Being and has won fans amongst celebrities ranging from Prince Charles to Mikhail Gorbachev to Demi Moore to David Lynch.
Examples of Deepak Chopra’s ‘Keys’ to a happy and meaningful life:
- The Key to all Good Things – teaches children about giving and receiving, and explains that what they put out to the world is what they will get back.
- The Key to Reaching Your Dreams – helps children realise how much power they have over their own lives and where this power comes from.
Each of the seven sections of this book presents a Key, as well as an illustrated example emphasising how it works in the world. These Keys, which have their origins in ancient Indian teachings, give children what Deepak believes are the most important traits they can possess: the ability to love and have compassion … and to spread that love and compassion to others.
