You have nothing to lose by reading this book

I’ve purchased 4 copies of this book and given 3 away to 3 of the closest people in my life. It’s one of those books that helps you become (or entertain the possibility of becoming) a person so at ease with life that you can’t help but want everyone near you to experience it too. It’s like Abraham Hicks without the...pomp? It’s laid back, simple to read, understand (re-remember?) and apply. Each chapter has a play sheet to keep you engaged. You’ll probably want to keep note of how often something occurs in your life and then the very next chapter you read relates to it. I’m working through the series now but I know this is the one I’ll refer back to frequently.

Best self help book

I absolutely love this book , it is my second copy that I purchased , if you can get one book on spirituality I would recommend this one .

Bring on the Joy!

What can I say? This is my all time favorite book. The positive energy that this book radiates sinks deep into my heart and lifts me up spiritually, mentally and emotionally. A few years ago I had an experience that left me heart broken and devastated. The information and energy in this book made it easier for me to heal myself and rise above the grief I was experiencing at that time. This book is obviously a gift from a higher place. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Dramatic Changes

All of the other reviews have expressed my thoughts on the quality of this book and it's message. I want to add one thing.. the messages in this book literally saved my life. Since my teenage years, I was depressed and even suicidal on a few occasions. As an adult, I was medicated for my depression. However, there are 2 things that can create a depression: a chemical imbalance or overpowering self-pity. As I learned from reading this book, all the events in my life happened because they needed to and I have control over them. Luckily I didn't truly have a chemical imbalance. The book helped me to reevaluate my life and I pulled out of the "self-pity mode." I have been happy for the past 5 years and off medication. This book has spurred me to make self-discovery a favorite activity. All the reading I have done on New Age and self-help principles have resonated the same messages that Orin does in Living with Joy.

Deceptively simple in presentation...

Incredibly profound in content.Having gone through the whole "Conversations With God" (CWG) series as well as "Friendship with God", I wondered how this book would compare in principle--and I'm happy to say quite favorably. It seems truth IS universal, despite varying styles.Whereas CWG was mind-blowing in it's eloquence, "Living With Joy" seemed almost child-like in it's gentle manner. Like a patient teacher, it takes your hand and walks you through precisely what it means to live a life based on joy. And what a delightful, refreshing, thought-provoking and ultimately life-changing stroll it is.I especially liked Orin's admonition to take what he says and use what resonates for you, personally, and leave the rest behind. A good principle, I feel, when reading anything pertaining to our individual growth paths. Having said that, I found that almost all of it resonated with me, deeply and profoundly. You may, too.Read it for the light it can bring. Live it for the positive changes it can invoke. Love it for the joy we can all share and partake of. Highly recommended.

This book should be required reading in every school

I read this book several years ago while I was in university and it struck me around that time that in all of my years of studies I had never learned anything truly *important* in school. Nothing compared to this, nothing that added meaning or depth to my life, nothing that helped me to live with more peace, joy, or compassion. In this book I was reading about the importance of looking at all situations in a higher way and finding the good in them, about the importance of self love, self respect, self esteem, gratitude, higher purpose, how to experience more inner peace, balance, security, clarity, and freedom in my life. These concepts and subjects are among the most important things anyone can learn about living and life and *none of it was being taught in schools!*If you have never read any of Sanaya's books before and are new to the metaphysical field, this book is a great place to start. It discusses down to earth applicable knowledge without dabbling in esoterics. It is completely devoid of dogma and is not based in any religion or philosophy.A good complement to this book (for me) has been the Conversations with God (CWG) series by Neale Donald Walsch. While Sanaya/Orin speaks of many practical things you can do to make your everyday life work in higher ways, CWG has an in-depth metaphysical discussion of broader spiritual topics. Beware though, these books (the CWG series) may be deep waters for some... if you are not prepared to be challenged in your beliefs and the way you see the world, bring scuba gear or steer clear.I highly recommend both this and all of Sanaya's books. Some deal with more accessible topics than others (like LWJ and Creating Money), others are more esoteric (Spiritual Growth and Opening to Channel) and others are somewhere in between (Soul Love and Personal Power through Awareness). All are excellent and top notch in quality though and even the ones dealing with esoterics are very clearly written and easy to understand. In each subject area the individual books deal with they are at the top of their field. You simply won't find any better on the subjects.I wish this author was better known to the public as her books have so much to offer. If this review is the first encounter you have had with any of her books then you have stumbled onto a great (and largely unknown) treasure in metaphysical literature. I wholeheartedly encourage you to dive in and enjoy!If anyone wishes to discuss her material or metaphysics, please feel free to contact me.

A gentle and loving book

This book, like all of Sanaya's and Orin's works, are the most gentle and loving on the planet. I've read many other channeled books which read like pure gibberish, because the earth-bound channel lacked the objectivity to "stay out of the way", and let the message come through. Nine times out of ten, we end up reading about how miserably we've failed on one plane or another, or about some mystical nonsense with no practical application. Even Edgar Cayce dipped in the well of "it's my way or the highway" religion. Sanaya Roman espouses no particular religious path-you are encouraged to take from the book what fits you, and leave the rest. These books offer comfort, inspiration, and practical help that feels real to me. Ever read a self-help book that purports to understand how you feel, offer to help you with your maladies, only to leave you feeling worse by implying what a hopeless sot you are (unlike the author, who didn't have any REAL problems to begin with)? Well, I've learned to skip any book that doesn't come from love. I read many books, but these are the ones I read every day, for well over a decade. Any of these boks are the best of the field-bar none.
