The Maze of Happiness
ÁLEX ROVIRA · FRANCESC MIRALLES
Ariadna is a thirty-three year old woman lost in a maze. To get out of it, she must find answers to the existential questions within her: Who am I? Where do I come from? Where am I going? What do I live for? She is the central character in this inspirational tale about the meaning of life.
The search for happiness is and has been a constant theme in the history of humankind and the lives of each one of us. But what exactly is happiness? How can we find it? As if happiness were an elusive butterfly, science and philosophy have always tried to find out where it rests: in material wealth? In the people we love? Or is it just a utopia? Essentially, is happiness an aim, or is it a way of going through life?
This charming tale illustrates, among many other things, the importance of self-knowledge, the pleasure of the senses, tenderness as a balsam which heals everything, the meaning we give to the things that happen to us, our fears as obstacles, laughter: the universal method for dissolving worries; dreams and longings as spiritual combustion, and the universal bank of love.
Just as Ariadna emerges from her journey completely changed, this book is meant to transform the lives of readers who step into “The Maze of Happiness”.
Available in Spanish, Catalan and nine other languages.
