Expectations of Happiness

A NEW ADVENTURE!       

RETURN WITH JACK TO THE ‘DOT’ UNIVERSE…  

                                                                                   

                   

In “Expectations of Happiness”, James Connolly continues to deliver gems of wisdom through the voice Jack Johnston – a regular Australian bloke whose struggles with anxiety and family relationships make him a relatable character for many readers. Dialogue and storytelling are used to illustrate psychological barriers to happiness, and the relationship between spirituality and day-to-day life is explored in a way that is surprisingly down to earth and engaging.

More than providing a pleasant escape from (our physical) reality, reading this book is an uplifting experience that gives the reader an opportunity to delve into spiritual and psychological realities.

When I finished reading “Expectations of Happiness”, I was enjoying it so much that, I had a strong “Oh no!” moment at the end, because there were no more words to read!

The story is of one man’s adventure exploring the meaning of life, told against a backdrop of inter-dimensional travel, with mysterious friends, foes and a sprinkling of humour to light the way. Written in a conversational way, “Expectations of Happiness” discusses the limitations we place on ourselves and the journey we take to find true purpose and meaning.

THE STORY                               

It’s nine years later, and Jack Johnston is at it again!

Having struggled to create a happy life on planet Earth, after his roller-coaster journey in search of The Department of Truth, Jack finds himself once again drawn away to other worlds, and places deeper, to find out why.

The boundaries to other worlds and places deeper are now easier for him to traverse. But there is a price, and he finds himself in grave danger. Fortunately, he gathers new allies, amazing beings, and old friends, to help him along the way. This new danger, these new allies, and the process he finds himself in, help him reach deeper into his true nature, and why happiness has eluded him.

As he prepares to make a last stand against two great dark forces that threaten to come through the doorway to the human reality, he gathers a great deal about his nature, and the nature of his existence. He discovers much about being stronger, and is often surprised about new insights he is given into the true nature happiness.

Join Jack again as he wanders though the amazing worlds and realities of the DOT universe, fighting off the Robes, swashbuckling with Agents, learning how to surf, how to love, and how to be happy.

FROM THE AUTHOR                                

What is our reality truly? Are we just smart animals, or is there more to us? What is the nature of this life for humans? What is it that makes us truly happy?

Join Jack, in this second book of “The Department of Truth Trilogy”, as he finds himself once more drawn to places deeper; to learn more about his nature, the reality of this life, and where to find happiness. The book explores what true happiness really is, and Jack finds some surprising answers to these eternal questions.

This book will give you new insight; on the power of purpose, the reality of meaning and connection, and the nature and power of individual transformation. It will hopefully make you more aware of what happiness really is.

FULL TESTIMONIALS

“Expectations of Happiness”, like “The Department of Truth”, is a book filled with magic and adventure.  The author’s use of language draws you in, creating intriguing imagery as you read.

The story leads the reader on a journey of self-discovery and the learning of not only who you are, but how to become a happier, stronger version of yourself. It supports the challenge of reaching beyond your current limits by keeping an open mind, questioning current beliefs, and trying to better understand others’ beliefs. The book shows the need for a connectedness to yourself and to others. An entertaining read with deeper insight’s found throughout the story.

Being new to the Baha’i Faith, I found “Expectations of Happiness” another step in my spiritual growth journey.

Cathy McEwen, Life Coach, Australia

_________

This book takes us on a journey that we have all taken part in. Some reject it. Others embrace it. Yet others misunderstand it. The journey of life takes us all in different directions, and without purpose, we lose sight of the joy within life. This book brings in focus a man’s journey for happiness. It is inspiring, insightful, and illuminating.

It was at times difficult to read because it reflected too closely my own struggles in life, but I could not stop reading it because it gave me hope.

This is one of those books that you will read a second time, and pick up a new understanding. It is a book that needs to be read more than once. It is a book that underpins the importance of the Creative Word.

Thank you for its wisdom and illuminating His words.

Bruce Thompson, Lecturer, Canada.
