The type of HAPPY that you feel when you’re in alignment with your youest you is the kind that lasts. This is the kind that doesn’t  revolve around anyone else’s happiness. It’s natural feeling of joy, peace and gratitude that will flow through your body no matter what. And guess what? That vibration will actually inspire happiness in others without you doing anything at all.

 

What makes you happy? Feel it today!

Namaste,

Let’s All Do Something Great Today

What is it that makes you happy, and how come you don’t do it enough?

I was reflecting the other day after I was done with yoga about how great I felt, and I started wondering why I don’t try to always feel this way.

I used  to blame the lack of indulging myself with treats on my job.  Since I no longer have a job to go to, it has luckily been making it difficult to come up with reasonable excuses.  I think that we all hold ourselves back to some degree when it comes to taking care of our mind, body and spirit.  It’s like we figure that if we push a little harder that there will be some light at the end of the tunnel and we will be able to enjoy our indulgences soon enough.

Why do we do that, though?  We know that something is good for us, yet we find reasons to not do it.  If you know that something not only feels great, but also is great for you, then, do it!  We all have fast paced lives and the world isn’t going to stop for any of us.  We are constantly trying to reach a new goal and in the meanwhile we put ourselves off to the side.  We should take all of our excuses and fears and turn them into our greatest assets.  Let’s look at the obstacles that stop us and find ways to make them work towards our goals instead of keeping us from doing what we really want.  If someone is telling you that you have too much work to get done, then say “well I better get my spirits up if I am going to produce a great product.”  Let those fears wash right over you and help guide you into a better lifestyle.  Reflect on the activities that make you the happiest.  What would you really like to be doing?

Let’s all do something great today.  Let’s do it when we aren’t even thinking about it.  In that perfect moment when you’re feeling like it’s simply time for you –act upon it.  You don’t need to plan the exact moment that you are going to stop preoccupying yourself with work.  Just let the feeling come to you.

Think of the things that you can do Right Now where you are to bring a smile to your face.

Just make sure that no matter what you are doing, you are doing it for the right reasons.  The idea here is not to create more drama in your already hectic life.  We are trying to awaken your true self.  Let’s get that kid in you out here to do some of the things that you really want to do.

Stretch, run, play, talk, scream, eat great food, exercise, love, swing, jump, rest, pray, meditate, breathe.  Just make the time for it now!

Let it catch on with the people around you.  Grab that smile and throw it on your face, and let them see you walking around happy all the time.  People will come up and ask why you are cheerful and you can tell them to kick loose as well.  Let people know that you are taking some time for you to get your relax on.  Let’s see if we can get the world to ease up just a little bit today.

What Do You Truly Want to Do?

When I was a child, my parents told me that I could be anything, as long as I became a doctor or a lawyer first.

I was brought up with the mentality that I needed to get a high paying job that would separate me from the general populace and retire me early.  My parents worked hard for money and they showed us how to follow in their footsteps.  This sounds like a great philosophy, except for the fact that my father used to complain about how hard his life was all the time.

It was his complaining that ended up changing my path.  I never wanted to grow up and resent myself, or worse, someone else.  I know that my father blames my mother for his not getting a more corporate job with less stress and an easier schedule.  He made his decisions based on what others were telling him to do with his life.  We all know these people who are constantly asking us what we are doing with ourselves, and what new job we are trying to get.  No one is ever asking if we feel like we are on the right course.

Are you working towards what makes you happy, and in the same time enjoying what you are doing?  It’s so easy to put your dreams to the side and simply go to work.  Just look at us as a people.  So many of us are at jobs that we can’t stand.  Jobs that make us want to scream at times.

Bosses who have the brain capacity of a gumball that repeat the dribble that they were told to repeat.

You can’t go to work at some stupid job where you sit in front of a screen and fill in useless information into your computer all day.  Unless it is your goal to be unnoticed and under appreciated your whole life, this is not a very good way to keep yourself moving forward.  We all need to search for what makes us happy.  Not what makes our parents and community happy, but what truly makes us smile in the morning just knowing that we are doing the right things with our lives.

Take a good look around you.  Things are becoming automated.  Our unconscious jobs are all becoming mechanized.  Tech support is done more through computer than human now.  The world is forcing us to start using our brains, and we need to be able to see this in a positive light.  You aren’t losing your ability to be dependant on this current system.  You are gaining the ability to use your mind for something a million times better than what you have been.

My wife and I are on the path to make sure that the world wakes up.  That is our Bliss.  We are going to help every person who has decided that they would like to understand themselves better and create something extraordinary out of their time here.  We ALL have something amazing to give to the world.  ALL of us.  We simply need to open our eyes to what we are doing now and what we would love to be doing later.  Maybe your calling is to be a doctor or a lawyer and you are going to change our perverse legal system or cure the world from disease.  What’s important is that we get you on that path to enlightenment now.  The world needs as many free thinkers as possible with how fast our technology is growing.  What do you truly want to do?
