“So often we’re searching for what will make us happy. We’re feeling discontented and we don’t know why. With Inquire Within, James K. Papp shows you how to reconnect with the spiritual side of your existence as a source of true happiness. Spirit is the only constant in our lives, he says, and therefore the most reliable source of happiness. After reading the book, I felt a greater sense of peace. One of my favorite chapters in the book is where James describes easy ways we can become more connected to nature. The book has inspired me to break away from my computer more often to take a hike or simply walk in my yard and enjoy the company of the trees and the flowers. If you’re seeking true happiness and haven’t been able to find it in your life, your search is over because Inquire Within will show you exactly what you need to do to live a more peaceful and happier existence.”
