The Pursuit of Happiness – Part Two

The Pursuit of Happiness – Part Two

We devote energy to the pursuit of changed life conditions at the expense of neglecting pursuits that might actually deliver the happiness we are looking for. In fact, “happiness” may not be the best word to describe what we are really looking for.  I think what we are actually seeking is better described as fulfillment or deep inner peace.

The Pursuit of Happiness

The Pursuit of Happiness

Most of us find ourselves busily doing many things each day. Sometimes we do these things with strong determination and persistence – convinced that they are important to do. Rarely, do we feel the need to ask ourselves why are we doing what we are doing. We are often operating on auto pilot; we rarely pause to reflect on where we are trying to go and how well what we are doing is moving us in that direction.

Use Posture to Improve Your Perspective

We all know it is not likely that a person who is sitting or standing with shoulders slumped and head hung low will greet us with a hearty, “Good Morning! Isn’t it a great day?” We read body language of that sort quite accurately and recognize that the individual with that posture is most likely sad, depressed, ill, or anxious.

Inspiration Online

Inspiration Online

While we know that many of the voices and messages that come at us through online sources are negative and intended to provoke a reaction, we can find many voices of wisdom and inspiration on line as well. What is the best way to find someone with a healing message?

Embrace Gratitude

Embrace Gratitude

Gratitude is a powerful tool if you want to experience a happier, more contented life. Some folks dismiss gratitude, because they think it is necessary to believe in a sacred being to be grateful. But it is possible just to be grateful, perhaps to the Universe, or to no one in particular. It’s an attitude — a positive response to life.
