What exactly is this happiness that we spend our lives pursuing it more fiercely than anything else? The answer, Drs. Lickerman and ElDifrawi argue, is that it isn't just a good feeling but a special good feeling—in fact, the best good feeling we're capable of having.

Enduring happiness is something we all want yet many of us fail to achieve. Look around you. How many people do you know who would say they feel a constant and powerful sense of satisfaction with their lives? How many people do you imagine wouldn't find their ability to remain happy impaired by a significant loss, like the death of a parent or a spouse or a child? How is it possible to stay happy long-term when so many terrible things are destined to happen to us?

In this highly engaging and eminently practical book, Drs. Lickerman and ElDifrawi assert that the reason genuine, long-lasting happiness is so difficult to maintain is that we're profoundly confused not only about how to go about it but also about what happiness is.

In identifying nine erroneous views we all have about what we need to be happy—views they term the core delusions—Lickerman and ElDifrawi show us that our happiness depends not on our external possessions or even on our experiences but rather on the beliefs we have that shape our most fundamental thinking. These beliefs, then, form ten internal life-conditions, or worlds, through which we continuously cycle and that determine how happy we're able to be.

Drawing on the latest scientific research, Buddhist philosophy, and contemporary case studies from their own patients, Lickerman and ElDifrawi reveal that once we learn to embrace a correct understanding of happiness, we can free ourselves from the suffering the core delusions cause us and enjoy the kind of happiness found in the highest of the Ten Worlds—the world of Enlightenment.

The Ten Worlds:

  1. Hell

  2. Hunger

  3. Animality

  4. Anger

  5. Tranquility

  6. Rapture

  7. Learning

  8. Realization

  9. Compassion (Bodhisattva)

  10. Enlightenment
    (Buddhahood)
