Happiness. (A Peaceful Mind and Body)
To be Happy, we must be able to Accept life as it is (right NOW). To truly Accept life, we must BE and Remain, absolutely Present in EACH inevitable moment.
The Body is the best Metric known to mankind. The Body is trying to remind us through our 5 senses, how Present and Aware we are [not]. The Body uses Pain and Pleasure to reclaim our Conscious Attention.
Subtle cues are missed over time, and become [obvious] surprises.
Unfortunately, [although we won’t admit it] many of us are severely uninspired. We would like to help and serve others, but we do not feel invited, capable, or energetic enough to do so.
Additionally, we are so concerned about “our self” that often our own focus is based solely on just surviving (personally, or taking care of just those we love). True inspiration is far bigger than our self.
Fear drives us to attempt to control life scenarios and outcomes. It is logical to reduce negative impacts and maximize positive impacts, for our own sake. However, our perception of the risks and benefit of our [in]action is often misleading. If we are too aggressive in mitigating the “risk”, then the outcomes are sub optimized and our fears are affirmed, oddly enough through our very own [in]action – the same energy used to mitigate the risk.
