From the Publisher
Praise for Living A Course in Miracles:
“. . . a wonderful guide to both understanding and behavior, with light in our minds and love in our hearts.” —Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love
Library Journal
08/01/2014
Mundy, Senior Minister Emeritus of Interfaith Fellowship (New York City) and author of Living a Course in Miracles probes further into one tenet of that manual's teachings, specifically that "God's will for me is perfect happiness." After the author's review of Miracles in the first three sections of the book, he discusses the laws of happiness, the first being that all words and deeds have consequences, either positive or negative. Therefore, aligning one's mind with that of God reaps positive results—a person is trusting rather than being distrustful, is honest rather than dishonest, and loving rather than hateful or indifferent. Joy, patience, happiness, and gentleness are the outcomes of God-centeredness. VERDICT A satisfying follow-up to A Course in Miracles.

Lesson 101: Perfect Happiness is centered on teaching us how to accept the Reality of Love that we've hidden behind our self-made illusions, which are born of fear. Jon Mundy addresses this subject very effectively, and it has obviously been the focus of his entire career. This is the lesson that Jesus Christ came into this world to teach us; this world's entire purpose, and our entire purpose in this world. And when you've found good reason to believe that all of this is true, you've found the Holy Grail!

Jon has come a long way from a farm kid in Missouri. His journey couldn't have been by chance. He's done too much and been too many  places to think he wasn't guided by God! Jon was with the main characters involved with ACIM in the beginning - Helen and Bill and Ken.  I've enjoyed and benefited from all of Jon's books and I've attended several of his workshops. When I saw that he had written another  book, I doubted he had anything new to say. I was wrong! This book is the best one he has written.  My copy of the book is marked and it has sticky notes all through it. I will read it many more times. It is truly a joy to read. Thank you, Jon!

Perfect happiness is a most excellent book. As with all of Jon's writings, It is a clear and insightful approach at understanding A Course in Miracles. And Gods will for us.

A COURSE IN MIRACLES saved my life, so I have read many books related to it, including most of those written by Jon Mundy. LESSON 101: PERFECT HAPPINESS is a book for students of the Course, as well as those who are not but want to evolve and achieve the happiness that is their natural inheritance, as the Course states. This precious book helps readers understand and deepen the Course's content so they can integrate it's teachings and shift their perceptions to true vision. It provides them with the tools to shift from living through fear to embracing living through love. Jon Mundy's writing style simplifies the concepts and makes it easier to understand and integrate the Course into our lives. I'm touched by his depth, devotion and above all his profound understanding of the Course. PERFECT HAPPINESS is an important book. It flows easily, is clearly written, is accessible and most importantly full of love.

I've been a Course in Miracles student for close to 20 yrs. and find Jon Mundy one of the most accessible speakers/writers on the joyful message of the course. However, Perfect Happiness is not just an illluminating expansion of the message of the course--in just the first 10 pages!--but also an exciting guide to happiness for any seeker. Dr. Mundy illustrates his points with personal experience and humor and elaborates on the topic with stories and quotes from many cultures and sages. I highly recommend the book to anyone who wants to be joyful.

Enjoyed this most recent book by Jon.  With each of his books I seem to gain more clarity as to the direction ACIM is taking us as we climb back to what we never left.  Jon teaches these concepts through his ministerial lens and helps us understand the various layers of illusions that we choose to believe in, rather than choosing the Truth of Who We Are.  Thank you, Jon, for continuing your journey, and thus, helping us all journey with you!

I loved Lesson 101: Perfect Happiness on a personal level. I have great respect for the author and content on another level. As a long time Course in Miracles student I undertstand how challenging its contetnt can be to read and understand. Jon Mundy has made the most diffuclt principles easy to grasp in Perfect Happiness. And he's made it fun with all the personal illustrations and stories. I highly recommend this book to Cpourse stduent and non-Course students. It is gold mine waiting to be tapped by both! Jack S.

Jon Mundy's books are a joy to read! In Lesson 101: Perfect Happiness, Jon keeps returning the reader to the idea that perfect happiness is available, right here, right now, by following the principles found in A Course in Miracles. The main tool to attain happiness is forgiveness. Jon comes at forgiveness from many different angles, allowing us to see that non-forgiveness comes in the forms of judgments, lack of faith, blame, guilt, victimhood, belief in the illusory world, etc. Through many entertaining vignettes, Jon helps us apply forgiveness in daily, practical ways. Every one of us will see ourselves in these pages.  Anything Jon writes, I read. Jon's personality exemplifies the peaceful joy that A Course in Miracles promises us when we apply its principles. His gentle manner of laughing at the illusions we've made and cherish come through in every page. Jon's person and this book let us know that, indeed, perfect happiness is a real possibility.

This new book by Jon Mundy is beautifully written, simple, clear and brings the depth of the Course in Miracles to life wonderfully.. The book explores the deepest truth about love, happiness and what it takes to live a life that is truly fulfilled. I recommend it whole heartedly. Brenda Shoshanna
