Happiness Survey

Postby Juno » Tue Mar 03, 2009 6:46 am

I heard about this survey that was done in depth with a lot of people. The running thread was the people who were happiest had little hits throughout the day (and I'm not talking about weed for those that went there : ) For example we go through our day senseing this beingness that we are many times. I know for myself I do it numerous times a day and it has a great impact.
by thinking of something you create an entity and by thinking of nothing you create another. Let such erroneous thinking perish utterly, and then nothing will remain for you to go seeking!

Meditate short time many times during the day. Powerful practice. Everything can be a support for awareness.

Sounds true. This is my practice as well......I try to check in deeply for a second or two. Find it to be a sort of reboot to what's essential. Dunno about happy..... :wink:
Be present, be pleasant.

Ha ha, I was in the cashier line at a thrift shop the other day. There was only one register open and a very long line of people with lots of stuff. The lady behind me was making all sorts of negative comments and was all upset that she had to wait, clearly disagreeing with What Is.
I turned to her and said, "I love waiting in line; It's very restful -- the perfect opportunity to rest, like a little meditation."
She smiled, and said, "What a good idea! I need to try that."
The young guy behind her said, "Thanks! I needed that reminder." :-)

Gorgeous Heidi!!

Venus rose beautifully in the early morning sky this morning.
The moon was still out and you could see the landscape clearly.

What if this moment is all that you have?

Appreciate, appreciate, appreciate :D

What one thing would you do differently today if you loved yourself more?
