the ultimate inside job : happiness

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

If so then fake it til you make it just won't cut it when in essence we are our message.

Ahura Mazdā

redefine success based on the size of our heart instead of the size of our home~ Jay Shetty

Who and how we are in our lives nurtures us or we wither up and die missing out on fulfillment and joy. Putting our hearts on the line otherwise our lives are truly at risk.

Happiness is the fruit that grows on a tree where four distinct branches are nurtured and cultivated: belonging, purpose, transcendence and narrative. The more we cultivate these, the more bountiful the harvest of happiness it bears.~ Ada Porat

Inner alignment dictates outer success. In seeking happiness being happy cannot be given or forced. It is a state of being that is achieved through constant attention, care and practice.

We are born with the need to belong in our genes and the pursuit of our own identity provides purpose and belonging in our own lives.

To belong we rise above and effort beyond our own personal interests with shared focus and commitment, beyond and greater than ourselves, to fulfill and benefit with others or we forfeit and risk both our existence and humanity.

True purpose is showing up in the world with the gift of who we are to serve the greater good and make a difference for the better.

Transcendence is the act of bringing ourselves into alignment with Source and All That Is. Stepping in flow and harmony with all that surrounds us. To expand with growth, to strive til we thrive.

In so doing what is our narrative, what story do we tell ourselves? Are we the victor or a victim? Is our story limiting or restrictive? Do we honor our truth and let our soul shine?

Self mastery and divine realization require both loving kindness and disciplined practice.

He who wishes one day to fly, must first learn standing and walking and running and climbing and dancing. One does not fly into flying.~ Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
