Is that Action an Expression of Happiness?

What if you could break down every action of every person on the planet as an expression of happiness or a call for happiness?

Expressions of happiness: writing a good book, playing a piano solo, baking a cake, taking a bike ride, doing a great job on a presentation…

Calls for happiness: getting called into the principal’s office for pranks, cutting off someone on the freeway, feeling sad, pushing someone out of the way to get ahead…

Now, next time you run into a situation where someone is calling for happiness, could you reach out and give them a hand? An understanding look? What will you do?

Breaking down before breaking through

The worst breakdowns happen before the biggest breakthroughs. Getting through a very difficult time in your life gives you compassion, insight and wisdom. Letting go of old ways can be dicey. Know a breakthrough is in store.

Why Pets Are the Key

Well, pets are not the key for every person. But pets are present. Pets live for right this instant. If you can talk to your pet, they are looking around, right now, considering what is good (or what they need) right now. Generally pets live very in the moment. When you pet your dog, or ride your horse, you can tap into that space of feeling present. Consider living in that space of being present. In your present, what is? This is the key to happiness.
