Notes/Thoughts

“Happiness can only exist in acceptance.”
– George Orwell

Are you happy?

Let’s start by defining ‘happy…’

hap·py
/hapē/
noun

1. Feeling pleasure or contentment.

That’s it!

It happens in the moment.

Happiness happ(y)ns in the moment.

And there’s only ONE moment – it’s NOW.

How to be happy:

  • Be present, and give yourself a present today!
  • Accept things and people the way they are ~ give up the fight.
  • Love with your whole heart, even if they don’t love you back…
  • Do something and be fully in the moment!
  • Exercise
  • Dance
  • Sing a song
  • Meditate
  • Practice Yoga
  • Perform a random act of kindness
  • Find your calling, and do it!

To be, or not to be happy…?


If you’re not happy, do something that makes you happy, right now. You may need to acknowledge some truths first, to yourself and others.

Remember a truth doesn’t just disappear when it’s ignored…


Also remember that happiness exists in the moment, and the moments make up your life, so respect the moment…The moments make up the minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years of your life. Actually, there are no minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years ~ we just made those up!

There is only NOW.

Let’s continue by defining acceptance…


ac·cept·ance
/akˈseptəns/
noun

1. The act of accepting someone or something.

I would add ‘totally and completely…’ accepting someone or something.


If you accept someone ‘as they are,’ and something ‘as it is…’ happiness is possible. If you allow yourself to feel the impact of someone or something in the past or present, and surrender to it ~ give up the fight, happiness is possible. 

It may be the only way for you to enjoy the holidays…Change it up!

Also, ask yourself…

What if…a great holiday was up to me?
Then live from the question… and watch what you create!


Of course there are special circumstances; i.e. abusive situations, or unusually uncomfortable situations, where you need to acknowledge what is happening and get out…

Nothing is wrong with a hotel…

EVERYDAY…


Play… The Happy & Successful Game!

Rules:

If you notice you’re in the moment, you’re present, you’re paying attention to every detail, savoring the moment, you win. You are a success! If you notice you’re not in the moment, you’re not present, you’re not paying attention to every detail, not savoring the moment, you loose. 

The End. 

*Ya gotta do somethin’ to play!

Imagine what could happened if we all focused on the intention this week! The purpose of focusing on an intention, or question is to practice it, so it can be called upon always and forever.


Remember, everyone is on their own path at their own pace, and we all have the same value. Also, while examining the intention and answering the question, make sure you’re not hurting yourself or anyone else.


Please practice yoga safely, and pause or stop when you need to pause or stop.  Listen to your body! Also, please consult a doctor before engaging in the practice of yoga. The Yoga Book blog, it’s affiliates, etc. do not take any responsibility for injuries, actions etc. which may occur as a result of doing yoga, focusing on the question/intention, or doing “Today’s Class.” Also, The Yoga Book blog is not intended to be a substitute for professional help. It is simply information based on experience and some research. Remember, you are making your own choices ~ following your own path, your own heart. ‘Tis up to you, what you do, and your sole responsibility. It is also your responsibility please, to seek the professional help you may need in dealing with the issues that may arise in your life.

…And we all need a little help, sometimes 🙂


The Yoga Book

“The idea for The Yoga Book came to me in a yoga class! I saw it clearly in my mind and I needed somewhere to write it down. Also, I had recently met with a Indian medical doctor, who had said “Different styles of yoga effect people differently, so it is important to know which ‘style of yoga’ is right for you.” So, I decided to create a book, where people could journal about their experiences in a yoga class, write about the different postures – how they felt, get inspired, and write about their insights… Sometimes I would come to class with a problem, any problem, and leave with a solution! And when I did, I’d write it down somewhere, so I decided to create The Yoga Book.” 

– Creator of The Yoga Book
