Hi guys, here's our daily ramble about happiness and the nature of the mind. Enjoy the bird and airplane sounds (and more) as we record this from our garden in its sunny springtime beauty. Some of today's topics include: 1. how the mind can still make us unhappy even when we have everything we ever wanted 2. how to exit these crazy thought patterns and feel present again in the moment... 3. More reminders of how mindfulness can be a very useful tool for enjoying the present moment Interwoven with our own home-baked jokes and metaphors, of course. Enjoy!
My own reflection several hours after recording is this: every frustration and pain is ALWAYS followed after by relief, beauty, creativity and flow. Which brings me back to a quote from a favourite book called "Zen and the Art of Happiness" by Chris Prentiss where the author dares to suggest the following:
Can you imagine that? Can you imagine approaching every life situation from the perspective of gentle curiosity and wondering how and in what beautiful fashion this new occurrence will bring you happiness and joy (eventually).
Think about it!
