More on Happiness: The Real Medicine
From the Introduction
Happiness is our essential nature. It is not created bu rather revealed. You cannot increase the quantity of happiness. It is like the quiet of the early morning -- when noise is eliminated, quietness reveals itself.
In my life, I have found multiple levels of "noise" that obliterated happiness. There are foods in our diet that make the body and mind too restless for happiness to be experienced. There is pain and tension throughout our body that barricades happiness deep insdie us. There can be a relentless train of thoughts and feelings that prevent the presence of happiness from any and all detection. To be happy requires a proper diet, a body that is comfortable and calm, and most importantly, a mind that is sturday and stable.
Happiness has always been our only pursuit. Through the grace of those who have attained the happiness I sought, I am able to share with you a comprehensive approach to quieting the noise in your boyd, breath, and mind in a manner that will allow the perennial joy hidden in the deepest recesses of your heart to flow forward.
