((( Suggested Practice )))
Think of an area in your life where it is easy to think happy thoughts. Choose one small area, such as shopping, driving, whatever…. It could be very simple….
Next: Capture that feeling you have and the ease of your happy and positive attitude. Notice how faith and optimism come easily for you in this area. Feel happy about HOW you are feeling happy in this area. Hold that feeling in your Heart and TRANSFER that feeling of success to another area of your life.
You can do it. You don’t need to know how. Your heart knows how. Happiness knows. Happiness flows where attention goes…
This simple practice changes everything for the better. Try it once a day for thirty days and watch your inner happiness increase.

“We have a duty to be happy….happy people lift other people’s moods.” ~Gretchen Rubin Check out The Happiness Project, a cool site by Gretchen Rubin
Happiness Comes from Within
Consider this: Your inner self is HAPPY NOW. In other words, your essence, the core of your being, is joy and any suffering is a layer of hurt on top of you.
Suffering comes and goes, so how could it be YOU? You are not your thoughts and you are not your feelings. You are the Being underneath them.
If these concepts are foreign to you, the work of Eckhart Tolle can explain them well. We also suggest you explore The work of Byron Katie. It can cut through all that is false in you and leave you standing in a core feeling of happiness.
“In your heart of hearts, you ARE happiness and any negativity in you is false. Judgment, hurt, and fear are all sustained through illusion. They feel real, but they are not. The key is not to “become happy” but rather to EMPTY OUT all the false ideas that stop you from connecting with your inner happiness.” ~Michael Alperstein
”What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life.” ~Leo Buscaglia
“Happiness is all around us, when we see with our hearts and when we see clearly into the hearts of other people. There is great power in giving no weight to other people’s thoughts and judgments of us. We do this when we look with love. Then the judgments others have of us become catapults that lift us higher, instead of pushing us down.” ~Michael Alperstein
” Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give. “ ~Eleanor Roosevelt
“The wall between “being happy” and “being unhappy” is very thin. Never think there is a great distance between the two. It only takes a small change in perspective or a tiny crack of light coming in the door to put you back in a positive experience.” ~Michael Alperstein
“The greatest happiness is to transform one’s feelings into action.” ~Madame de Stael
“You have a Happiness Switch in you that you can switch on at any time. All you have to do is stop switching it off in order to blackmail yourself or others.” ~ Robert Young, author of The Magic of Life
“Be Happy. Remember cause and effect are the same event. You don’t have to wait for a reason to be happy in order to know you prefer to be happy. Create the effect of being happy, and you will attract into your lives all of the causes to support the happiness you have created…. just because you want to.” – Bashar
“When you relinquish the desire to control your future you can have more happiness.” ~Nicole Kidman
“Always leave enough time in your life to do something that makes you happy, satisfied, even joyous. That has more of an effect on economic well-being than any other single factor.” ~Paul Hawken
”Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” ~Buddha
“There’s ultimately only one thing that makes human beings deeply and profoundly bitter, and that is to have thrust upon them a life without meaning…
There is nothing wrong in searching for happiness… But of far more comfort to the soul…is something greater than happiness or unhappiness, and that is meaning. Because meaning transfigures all. Once what you are doing has for you meaning, it is irrelevant whether you’re happy or unhappy. You are content—you are not alone in your Spirit—you belong.” ~ Sir Laurens van der Post from Hasten Slowly, a film by Mickey Lemle
“The universe is wired with the electricity of God, & each of us is a lamp. It doesn’t matter the size or shape of the lamp; it only matters that the lamp is plugged in. With every prayer, every thought of forgiveness, every meditation, every act of love, we plug in. The more of us who plug in, to more the darkness of the world will be cast from our midst. Today, let’s all increase love’s wattage!”- Marianne Williamson
Happiness and Love Quotes
“There are four questions of value in life: What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.” ~ Johnny Depp, From the movie Don Juan deMarco (1995)
“There is only one happiness in life; to love and to be loved.” ~George Sand
“Love is knowing you are the bud from which his happiness blossoms.” ~Source Unknown
“Where your pleasure is, there is your treasure: where your treasure, there your heart; where your heart, there your happiness.” ~Saint Augustine
“Love, you know, seeks to make happy rather than to be happy.” ~Ralph Connor
“How do we love? Like this: Let your Heart transcend your mind. Let it take over your thoughts and actions like waves overlapping the shore. It is effortless.
But the question may persist: “How do I love?” Ah, is that not the mind asking the very question? Let the Heart CONSUME your “How question” and you will KNOW the answer. The “how” is no different than breathing.When the Heart supersedes the mind, truth and love are revealed from within.” ~Michael Alperstein
