The Nashville chapter of The Way to Happiness Foundation distributed booklets to the community of Sudekum this week.
“I think many people share a purpose to help others find happiness,” says Rev. Brian Fesler who serves as regional coordinator for The Way to Happiness Foundation’s Nashville Chapter. “What we do is distribute a booklet with simple guidelines on how to be happy. It is easy to follow and puts a person on the right path.”
The Way to Happiness Foundation was formed around the book of the same name by L. Ron Hubbard. The Way To Happiness is comprised of 21 precepts, each one predicated on the fact that one’s survival depends on the survival of others—and that without the survival of others, neither joy nor happiness are attainable.
According to thewaytohappiness.org, “This code of conduct can be followed by anyone, of any race, color or creed and works to restore the bonds that unite humankind.” The Way to Happiness aims at giving people back a sense of what is right and wrong in a way that is easy to understand. In the two decades since it was authored, some 80 million copies of the book passed hand to hand.
The Nashville Chapter launched a campaign to distribute copies of the booklet in 2009. Since that time, the group has volunteered in local health fairs, festivals and community gatherings. Thousands of booklets have been distributed. This past week the chapter participated in a community event in the neighborhood of Sudekum where they distributed booklets to residents.
Fesler says, “We want to help people everywhere. This booklet was made for everyone so we are taking it to the people. Our goal is a crime-free, healthy, happy community.”
