Find Happiness Now

Find Happiness Now

There is only one moment in which we can experience happiness and that moment is now. That’s because now is the only moment there is. That may seem obvious to you when you hear it. But if we are being totally honest, most of us have been plagued by the constant pursuit, believing that to find happiness you need chase after it. Only on those rare occasions do we slow down enough to see that happiness is a choice that we surrender to now. Since the beginning of recorded history (and I suspect long before that) the great wisdom teachers ... Read More »

Believe in Abundance

Believe in Abundance

“Not what we have but what we enjoy constitutes our abundance.” John Petit-Senn Wanting More vs. Creating Abundance There is a difference in “I want it now” and “experiencing it now.” We want happiness now, but we’ve lost the ability to actually experience it in the now. “Wanting” is like “trying,” neither one will actually do anything for you or get you what you desire. You must do something to activate the Law of Attraction. However, for action to be effective you must always be moving in the direction of happiness, in the direction of better feeling thoughts. Real abundance is ... Read More »

Give Yourself Permission To Feel Good

“Think of someone that is easy for you to love…Just choose someone who it is easy for you to love and just sit softly and say to yourself, I really do love you…and if you’ll just sit and focus on someone that is easy for you to love, it will just soften your vibration, moving you in the vicinity of wellbeing.” Abraham Happiness always brings out the best in you and happiness is infectious.

Step into Happiness

Step into Happiness

The idea of stepping into happiness is a bit misleading, though it is based in a common misconception, which is that happiness it out there somewhere waiting to be found or in this care, to be “stepped” into. Happiness is always within you – you chose to be happy. Granted sometime the choice can seem difficult, especially when it seems as if the world has conspired against you. Robert Holden PhD, director of the Happiness Project, describes it this way, “Nothing in the world cam make you happy; everything in the world can encourage you to be happy.” The premise ...

Positive Thinking Will Boost Your Happiness

Positive Thinking Will Boost Your Happiness - Rewrite

It would seem to be common sense to believe that positive thinking will boost your happiness. I’ve discovered it’s anything but common. I believe that many people, and I was among them, when they hear the words “positive thinking” conjures up visions of Pollyanna airheads spouting trite affirmations, al la the Saturday Night Live character Stuart Smalley. And if they’re not that harsh, they at least think of them as naïve and unrealistic. Having a positive outlook doesn’t have to mean you deny the negative, that world events, both natural and those created by the human race, can be horrific. ... Read More »

The Key to Happiness is Connecting

The Key to Happiness is Connecting

Positive psychologists have been telling us for a while now that the key to happiness is connecting. But on Facebook, really? Oh, if I could only write out “really” the way Amy Poehler and Seth Meyer’s said it on Saturday night live.  With just a “little” bit of sarcasm. Sure I connect on Facebook, but I’ve never considered in intimate form of relationship building. Different generation I guess. Because according to Hugh MacKay, author and social researcher, that while connecting on social media is a pale comparison to “what we need as humans to maintain community.” The bigger question is just ...
