Happiness is a Meditation Retreat

Happiness Is A Meditation Retreat

I’ve come to realize that there are two types of travel. I’m not talking about the difference between first class and economy or different modes of transportation. Nope, what I’m talking about is the difference between going to places and going to a place within.  I like to think of it as adventure travel. Adventure travel, at its best, is always a journey of self-discovery, whether it’s hiking the red rocks of the desert southwest or connecting with my true nature, the journey of meditation. Combining the two type of travel offers the opportunity to enter into a blissful experience ... Read More »

Only on those rare occasions do we slow down enough to see that happiness is a choice that we surrender to now.

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.

Happiness is Staying Present in Everyday Life

Happiness is Staying Present in Everyday Life

Happiness is staying present in everyday life. But what does staying present mean? We spend so much of our lives worrying about the future or mulling over things that happened in the past, that it’s easy for us to miss what is.
