What is Abundance?

What is Abundance?

“I am the light that makes experience possible. I am the reality which is hidden in all beings”  ~Yoga Vasishtha~ True abundance is freedom. True abundance is well-being. True abundance is when our needs and desires are spontaneously fulfilled and we feel happiness and joy as we savor the present moment. Abundance is our natural state and our birthright; it’s also the ground state of reality. Abundance is not dependent on outside conditions. Abundance is the quality of our attention. When we are abundant what we come to know and experience is, that even through the most challenging of circumstances that ... Read More »

The benefits of Meditation are Joy and Happiness

The benefits of Meditation are Joy and Happiness

  This site is called laughter, happiness and bliss because they are the body, mind and soul of joy. Because Joy is multidimensional. The benefits of meditation are also multidimensional, when the body, mind and spirit are in balance then the result is peace, harmony and love or laughter, happiness and bliss. However, when we are out of balance we receive feedback from our body-mind which is quite different, it comes with a whole host of other symptoms in the form of disease, pain, discomfort, anxiety and depression. davidji open his chapter on the benefits of meditation telling us: “The physical, emotional, and ...

The Flow – Gateway to Happiness and More?

The Flow - Gateway to Happiness and More?

I experienced it all the time when I played guitar. I’d start “practicing” and the next thing I’d know it’s the middle of the night. “What the heck happened, it was 9 o’clock just a minute ago,” and now its hours later. I was so absorbed in “perfecting” the song that I completely lost track of time. The usual mind chatter that’s normally a constant companion – nonexistent. There were no interruptions from my “inner roommate” the whole time I was playing. Nothing else seemed to matter. I would spend hours working on a “riff” or fine tuning a lyrical ... Read More »

Can Happiness be found at a Happy Show?

Stefan Sagmeister

Stefan Sagmeister is a designer and multimedia artist whose latest project is Happiness. “The Happy Show” started as an idea for a film, a documentary on the nature of happiness. Sagmeister’s feature-length documentary has remained unfinished while giving birth to this current incarnation of ‘the happy show.’ Stefan’s passion for the subject of happiness shows in both the objective and subjective manifestations that are created by the presentations; that is, in the body and mind and culminating for many as the actually state of “in the moment happiness.” As a designer Mr. Sagmeister understands the importance of design and happiness ...

Defining Happiness

Defining Happiness

“I believe the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness. That is clear. Whether one believes in religion or not, whether one believes in this religion or that religion, we are all seeking something better in life. So I think the very motion of our life is towards happiness. “The Dalai Lama Intuitively, I believe the words of the Dalai Lama to be the truth. Happiness like love is something we all experience. We know how it feels. There’s an old joke about defining art, “I don’t know what it is but I’ll know it when I see ... Read More »

The Road to Happpiness Runs through our Fear of Change

The Road to Happpiness Runs through our Fear of Change

“People don’t understand that fear is a thing. It’s just another object in the universe that you are capable of experiencing.” Michael Singer Why are we afraid of change? It’s a paradox, we fear change and at the same time we long for change, for things to be different, to be more abundant or to feel healthier and, most of all, to be happier. I listened to Michael, on Oprah’s “Super Soul Sunday” program, explain that we’re afraid because we fear dealing with our fears. Hoping that if we ignore them or keep them hidden in the shadows they won’t ... Read More »

Positive Thinking and the Law of Attraction

Positive Thinking and the Law of Attraction

“Law of Attraction…says that which is like unto itself is drawn.”  ~Abraham~  Positive psychologist will tell you that how you think about yourself, another person or the world in general, has a greater affect on your experience of happiness than any objective circumstance in your life. The idea that optimistic thinking can and will influence how you first perceive and then act in the world, is not  new nor the “discovery” of modern psychology. Seer’s, saints and great grandmothers have for millennia understood the power of positive thinking and the power it can wield in or daily lives. Optimistic or positive thinking enhances our happiness ... Read More »

Letting Happiness Happen

Letting Happiness Happen

“It is the paradox of life that the way to miss pleasure is to seek it first. The very first condition of lasting happiness is that a life should be full of purpose, aiming at something outside self.” ~Hugo Black~ It turns out that there’s a paradox in the pursuit happiness. It seems obvious that anything we feel is worth achieving – whatever the goal, personal or altruistic – we pursue it “with a passion,” in other words we are willing to work at it. It’s no surprise then that research, by Sonja Lyubomirsky, Ed Diener and Laura King revealed that ... Read More »

I choose Love

I choose Love

I have a video I wanted to share. Actually it’s a “featured Happiness Video” on this website. I’m not here trying to promote the website. I am trying to “promote” something else – a choice. I learned about this video from Gregg Braden when he was in town visiting and sharing his latest work. Why I want to share it has to do with a conversation that, I would will to bet that you’ve all been a part of, especially if you’ve gotten caught up in what happening in any of the daily news cycles while talking to friends . ...

Allow more Limit-less Quieting the Mind

Allow more Limit-less Quieting the Mind

There’s a saying that my friends use which goes, “allow more limit-less.” That aphorism pretty much sums up Abraham’s message in this video.  Law of Attraction is about having your life be bigger, as Abraham  says, “It’s about allowing your life to be as big as you’ve already made it.” And yes, it’s true that we attract according to the level of our own vibration and that are our thoughts, words and feelings are extremely magnetic. But it goes deeper, our most powerful point of attraction is our belief system. It’s our belief system that allows more or limits-us. In order to ... Read More »
