A note about “How To Be Happy – The Maxus Irie Book Of Happiness”

August 18, 2013


Happiness should be fun – and I thought of this book, and the whole concept of Maxus Irie, as a way of emphasising the fun aspects of religions and cults both for those who are religious and also for those, like myself, who are not. Everyone should be able to enjoy prayers, rituals, hymns, psalms and myths – so why not democratise our natural instinct to rejoice?

Sing and you almost immediately feel happier. Pray, and you immediately have a sense of connection with the world into which you are sending your words. Rituals imprint mood patterns more firmly on your mind, while at the same time affirming your principles and beliefs within the material world. These are marvellous ways of expression and they deserve to be shared.

If you say these words:

“The power and the light

And the warmth

Of the sun

They are in me

They are in me

And they fill me with joy”

then you will almost certainly feel a little bit happier – and if you are unhappy they at least suggest and affirm the possibility of a happiness to come.

So, as you open the pages of How To Be Happy, I hope you will join me on a journey that I am just starting out upon: to happiness, contentment and love.

A message to my readers

August 4, 2012

Dear friends, colleagues and fellow lovers of the written word,

I am delighted to announce the release of the second instalment of my novel Green Messiah. It can be found at http://www.lukeandreski.com/greenreligion_greenmessiah.aspx,
where a free preview is available.

Green Messiah is about climate change, incest and cult religions.

Marshal’s sister Molly seduces him when he is only ten. When he is eighteen Marshal joins the Savantologists, a sinister cult spreading throughout Europe and the UK. When he is nineteen professional cult extractor Graham Dean kidnaps Marshal and deprograms him. At the age of twenty-two Marshal finds a new and better cult: New Creationism… And then all hell breaks loose.

In this instalment Molly’s predation worsens, Marshal’s depression deepens, and a serious attempt at cult intervention occurs…

Instalment One is also available (for the nominal price of 16 cents or 10 pence) from www.lukeandreski.com.

With very best wishes,
