What is the one thing you want more than anything else for the
people you love the most? If you had a magic wand what would you
grant your family and friends? What is it that everyone wants?
To be happy!
How can you make other people happy until you are happy? How can
you be happy?
Lester Levenson, creator of The Sedona Method, discovered the key
to happiness. He searched for 47 years and nearly died in the
process but he did find it. Do you want to know what it is?
Lester had a breakthrough after much soul searching and found out
how to be happy only after reviewing his entire life. He spotted
a common pattern, one that was present in every happy moment.
Whenever he was feeling love towards another person he felt happy.
And whenever he felt any other feeling he was not happy.
Test this principle for yourself. Think of a time when you were
blissfully happy. Did you feel loving at that time? This works for
me every time. Is this easy or what? Simply amazing!
If this sounds too simple to work I know that you have not tested
it for yourself. Turning on a light bulb is easy too only because
someone else figured it out!
Now it is time for Happy Talk or how to talk in a way that makes
your family and friends happy…
1 Be Happy Yourself
Spend twenty minutes asking yourself:
– who do I love most in my life?
– what do I love most about myself?
– what things do I love most in my life?
After doing this exercise you will feel much happier. And you
will have done it without having to spend any money on expensive
clothes, cars or holidays!
2 Spread the happiness
Now that you feel happy you will radiate this to whoever you
spend time with. Happiness is infectious. Just be yourself and
top up the happiness by quietly asking yourself the above three
questions when you are in company.
3 Show your friends and family how to be happy
Depending on how well you know your friends you may want to
approach this step in one of two ways.
If you want to play it safe ask your friend to talk about times
when she was happy. Let her talk and just listen as she relives
those wonderful times from the past.
Share your own favorite moments too. Enjoy yourself!
If the people you are with are more open to the ideas we are
discussing here take them through the steps I covered above in
section one. Ask them these questions:
– who do you love most in my life?
– what do you love most about myself?
– what things do you love most in my life?
The Dalai Lama teaches that the purpose of life is to be happy.
Go on and live a life of purpose with your family and friends!
