What makes us Happy?

8 Factors

that lead to high levels of happiness positive relationships with family and friends rewarding work sufficient money physical activity sound sleep good diet engaging leisure religious or spiritual practices.

Wealth, fame, appearance and possessions are not included in this list.

Being Happy - - -

Read a good book

Listen to Satvic Music

Be with Nature

Be with Family & Friends

Enjoy clean Humor

Tears and Smiles, birth and death; virtue and vice; sunrise and sunset, night and day are not opposed to each other. They are misunderstood synonyms; they are apparent antonyms. They are not contradictory but complementary to each other. In fact they enrich each other, enjoy each others presence, shake hands with each other, embrace each other, merge and finally dissolve into each other in the joyous union, in the delightful Dance of Life. Tears and Smiles cannot exist without the presence of each other. The day we reject tears, smiles are also rejected. Indestructible is their dualistic interdependence. ~ Sri Ram Sir From SMILING TEARS

You create your own Happiness . External things, may, increase it further, may, amplify it many times. Do not offer

RESISTANCE
to HAPPINESS Allow HAPPINESS to flow

The Question is ?

How to be Happy ?
23 December 2012 58

When you choose to be happy . . .

You also become more intelligent

Gently push away NEGATIVE THOUGHTS of Pride and Jealousy ~ by observing your own breath

Look at this ~ just as a child looks at

wonderful world

Stop Complaining Stop Criticizing Stop Commenting Stop Comparing Stop Competing

Give, gracefully,
without any expectation.

Receive anything,
~ very gratefully.

Live in the present moment, fully.


Pay full attention, and enjoy it fully.

Forgive, whatever harm


others may have done. Forget, whatever good you may have done.

Maintain a list of

exciting things
that made you feel Happy ~
