In this refreshing new take on spirituality, bestselling
author Deepak Chopra uses a fictional tale of a comedian and
his unlikely mentor to show us a path back to hope, joy, and
even enlightenment—with a lot of laughter along the way.
Meet Mickey Fellows. A successful L.A. comedian,
he’s just a regular guy, with his fair share of fears,
egocentricities, and addictions. After his father’s death,
Mickey meets a mysterious stranger named Francisco, who
changes his life forever. The two begin an ongoing
discussion about the true nature of being. Reluctantly at
first, Mickey accepts the stranger’s help and starts to
explore his own life in an effort to answer the riddles
Francisco poses. Mickey starts to look at those aspects of
himself that he has hidden behind a wall of wisecracks all
his life. Eventually Mickey realizes that authentic humor
opens him up to the power of spirit—allowing him to finally
make real connections with people.
After taking the
reader on a journey with Mickey, Chopra then spells out the
lessons that Mickey’s story imparts to us: ten reasons to be
optimistic, even in our challenging world. Chopra believes
that the healthiest response to life is laughter from the
heart, and even in the face of global turmoil, we can
cultivate an internal sense of optimism. Rich with humor and
practical advice, Why Is God Laughing? shows us
without a doubt that there is always a reason to be
grateful, that every possibility holds the promise of
abundance, and that obstacles are simply opportunities in
disguise. In the end, we really don’t need a reason to be
happy. The power of happiness lies within each of us, just
waiting to be unleashed. And Mickey Fellows’s journey shows
us the way.
