As the Dalai Lama wisely reminds us, “Happiness is the highest form of health and is determined more by one’s state of mind than by external events.” There it is, plain and simple, leaving us no wiggle room for not taking responsibility for our individual happiness. There’s paradox present too, for even in the midst of some situational unhappiness, with a shift of the mind—without bypass or denial—we can restore our happiness. If you’re ready to find out how, listen each week as we explore our September theme, “Living from a Heart of Happiness.”
The topic on September 1, 2019, was The Art of Happiness Is an Inside Job. Stress. Who among us does not seek to be happy? After all, it’s encoded in our neurons as part of our birthright. The obstacle is the outer conditions we insist must exist before we allow ourselves to be happy. Happiness organically emerges from within us when we move from life’s outer surface to the Core Self and commune directly with Spirit, the very Source and Supply of our happiness.
