    What’s happiness?

    It is not easy to define happiness. Individual preferences overtake each other’s description of the same.

    People often ask: “where do we find happiness?” money, richness, beauty, coloures, scents, nature etc. all give us immense pleasure. God has created this beautiful world only to enchant the occupants. There is some pleasure, which we can drive without directing our efforts towards it.

    The case of nature is the best example. The only thing we need is the inclination. Like the ways to God, the roads to happiness are also many. To derive pleasure out of one’s life is not something that comes directly from god. It lies within us. What we need to rekindle this state of mind is willingness to think wisely and positively.


    The mind is a hotbed of emotions. To have the right mix of emotions, we need a better actor in us. How to emote to get the right mix of the mindset is what
    matters. Simple things can add colour to our disenchanted life if we have the time to pause and think.


    Plenty of anything cannot make one happy. But having this plenty disbursed to the have-nots make us feel the joy of others.


    There were two neighbours. One was rich and the other the poor. Both were preparing for Diwali. The rich man decorated his house elaborately and illuminated it with lights. The poor man only lit a diya at the entrance of his house.


    They were both intimated by god that he would visit them on New year. The rich man was happy that he had outdone his neighbour. The poor man was happy that his diya was glowing in the darkness and that its light
    had a divine touch.

    Finally, God came to settle their claims. His attention was first drawn to the single diya that had lit up an entire dark patch. God was attracted to this and did not even look at the brightly-lit house on the other side.

    The verdict was clear. We all yearn for happiness. Having plenty does
    not necessarily guarantee happiness. So don’t wait for
    heaven to come to you. Make efforts to steer your mind to a state of happiness by sharing the little you have. Even a single lamp can cheer up a completely dark area. Light it and you will find happiness shining there in your inner self~~~

    Jai Sai Ram~~~

    May all the worlds be happy. May all the beings be happy.
    May none suffer from grief or sorrow. May peace be to all~~~

    For happiness increases when shared with all,

    Make Yourself Happy ~~~

    Whatever you enjoy, whatever makes you happy, DO IT, so long as it doesn't hurt you or someone else.

    Try to create timetables for doing things for yourself that you enjoy doing. It may be reading a book, watching telly, going for a walk, taking yourself to the movies, calling an old friend, searching for seashells on the beach, watching the sunset or picking wildflowers.

    Compile a list of things you enjoy doing and then list them in priority. Try not to do too many things at once and fit them into your daily routine of events.

    Everyone has the right to happiness including you.

    It is better to have enjoyed at least one moment of happiness in the day than to have enjoyed none. A famous person once wrote this phrase, "If it is to be, it is up to me."

    Tell your guardian angel or guide that you have chosen to be happy and that you want them to help you to think of happy things to do and to remind you of happy things you have done and enjoyed in the past.

    Helping others who may be experiencing the same problems as you are can make them happy and in turn, can give you happiness.

    Try doing some funny things such as putting your makeup on with the wrong hand, pulling faces at yourself in the mirror or agreeing with a friend to pull funny faces at each other. Pretend to laugh with a friend no matter how silly it sounds or seems, just do it. It can be catching and remember laughter is good medicine.

    Happiness can be found in the simplest of things, it's just a matter of YOU deciding to seek it.

    It is yours to have and you have every right to have it.

    Children are great teachers of happiness. The next time you are around children, observe what they do and allow your inner child to shine through.

    Jai Sai Ram~~~

    Alphabet Of Happiness~~~

    A--Accept
    Accept others for who they are and for the choices they've made even if you have difficulty understanding their beliefs, motives, or actions.

    B--Break Away
    Break away from everything that stands in the way of what you hope to accomplish with your life.

    C--Create
    Create a family of friends whom you can share your hopes, dreams, sorrows, and happiness with.

    D--Decide
    Decide that you'll be successful and happy come what may, and good things will find you. The roadblocks are only minor obstacles along the way.

    E--Explore
    Explore and experiment. The world has much to offer, and you have much to give. And every time you try something new, you'll learn more about yourself.

    F--Forgive
    Forgive and forget. Grudges only weigh you down and inspire unhappiness and grief. Soar above it, and remember that everyone makes mistakes.

    G--Grow
    Leave the childhood monsters behind. They can no longer hurt you or stand in your way.

    H--Hope
    Hope for the best and never forget that anything is possible as long as you remain dedicated to the task.

    I--Ignore
    Ignore the negative voice inside your head. Focus instead on your goals and remember your accomplishments. Your past success is only a small inkling of what the future holds.

    J--Journey
    Journey to new worlds, new possibilities, by remaining open-minded. Try to learn something new every day, and you'll grow.

    K--Know
    Know that no matter how bad things seem, they'll always get better. The warmth of spring always follows the harshest winter.

    L--Love
    Let love fill your heart instead of hate. When hate is in your heart, there's room for nothing else, but when love is in your heart, there's room for endless happiness.

    M--Manage
    Manage your time and your expenses wisely, and you'll suffer less stress and worry. Then you'll be able to focus on the important things in life.

    N--Notice
    Never ignore the poor, infirm, helpless, weak, or suffering. Offer your assistance when possible, and always your kindness and understanding.

    O--Open
    Open your eyes and take in all the beauty around you. Even during the worst of times, there's still much to be thankful for.

    P--Play
    Never forget to have fun along the way. Success means nothing without happiness.

    Q--Question
    Ask many questions, because you're here to learn.

    R--Relax
    Refuse to let worry and stress rule your life, and remember that things always have a way of working out in the end.

    S--Share
    Share your talent, skills, knowledge, and time with others. Everything that you invest in others will return to you many times over.

    T--Try
    Even when your dreams seem impossible to reach, try anyway. You'll be amazed by what you can accomplish.

    U--Use
    Use your gifts to your best ability. Talent that's wasted has no value. Talent that's used will bring unexpected rewards.

    V--Value
    Value the friends and family members who've supported and encouraged you, and be there for them as well.

    W--Work
    Work hard every day to be the best person you can be, but never feel guilty if you fall short of your goals. Every sunrise offers a second chance.

    X--X-Ray
    Look deep inside the hearts of those around you and you'll see the goodness and beauty within.

    Y--Yield
    Yield to commitment. If you stay on track and remain dedicated, you'll find success at the end of the road.

    Z--Zoom
    Zoom to a happy place when bad memories or sorrow rears its ugly head. Let nothing interfere with your goals. Instead, focus on your abilities, your dreams, and a brighter tomorrow.

    Jai Sai Ram~~~

    Happiness Is A State Of Mind~~~

    Happiness is a state of mind that starts from the inside out. One way to see how happy you are is an external reference on your appearance. When you look in the mirror do you like what you see? If not you are not a happy camper all the materialistic stuff in the world won't change that. The change comes from within. Embrace yourself and everything about YOU! If you are overweight and smoke you are slowly killing yourself. Start making changes now. By committing to a plan to be healthy starts the wheels in motion to feeling better about yourself.
    Are you getting enough sleep? How do you handle stress? If you put it all together, overweight, smokes, sleep deprivation how do you think your gonna handle stress??

    Start now and start loving you. If you need assistance with a healthy eating plan contact a nutritionist. If you do smoke ...Quit!! I can't over emphasis that smoking will suffocate you. Get help if you need it but Quit A.S.A.P.!

    Sleep, Sleep, Sleep. When you are well rested your mind has had a chance to recharge and you would be surprised how that will lift your spirits.

    Last, feed your mind good things. Don't watch the news late at night. Stay away from books on poverty and war. Put only healthy books and articles in your mind. Read books on being the best you can be. A good book Called "Thinking for a Change" by John Maxwell or "You Can Heal Your Life" By Louise Hay are two excellent books to start you on your journey of excellent health.

    Make it a daily habit to put only healthy things in your body and mind and I guarantee you will be a much happier person for it.

    Stay Strong and Live Your Life With Passion~~~

    Jai Sai Ram~~~

    MAKE HAPPINESS TO HAPPEN~~~
     

    You don't have to wait for something great to happen to be happy.  You don't need a reason.  All you need is to make a decision that's what you want to be and every day.  As I said, what you focus on expands. 
     
    If you're watching something funny and laughing are you feeling stressed or at that moment feeling happy. 
    Check this out.  For just a moment, close your eyes sit up straight, relax your shoulders, open your arms wide as if you're going to hug someone, take a deep breath and smile. How do you feel?  Have a feeling of lightness, energy!
    Now, hunch your shoulders, make your hands into fists, take some short quick breaths and frown.   How does it feel to do this?  Feel your energy draining?
    All you did was make a decision!  You can do this every day.  Over the years, I've often heard from clients, well when I have...................I'll be happy, if I could do..................I would be happy.  And as I told them, no you wouldn't.  It might make you more comfortable however it would not necessarily make you feel happier. 
    Happiness is something we create from the inside and can occur whatever your situation.  People who are penniless and homeless can be happy if that's what they decide or you can have all the material things in the world, money, cars, clothes and homes and still be unhappy.  I know from the latter that it's true.  I had most of the material things 25 years ago and I still wasn't happy.
    Now I set an intention each day that no matter what, I'm going to have a happy day. I encourage you to do this for at one week.  See if you feel lighter at the weeks end and then continue doing the same.  Laugh each day, enjoy everything around you and be very grateful that you have the life you are living.  You see, it really is all about a state of mind.
     
    Jai Sai Ram~~~
