Give it a go…because what’s more important than being happy?

Last year I wrote about Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra’s 21 day meditation on Desire and Destiny.

I have to be honest, I didn’t complete the 21 days. Life has a way of getting busy (lame excuse I know!!). This summer they are hosting another 21 day meditation on happiness and I am determined to put aside the time each day to complete it.

Essentially we are all happy beings and happiness is our true nature but when our ego, desires and other outwardly things take over, we often find we base our happiness on what we have rather than what we are.

So if you’re interested, give it a go…it’s 20 minutes each day and it started on the 11th of August (but you have up to 5 days to catch up).

On the first day Deepak Chopra explains how we all sacrifice our happiness in the name of selflessness but in fact by choosing happiness for ourselves and not feeling guilty or selfish about it, our happiness expands to all those around us. I’ve seen this time and time again. People feeling like they are martyrs because they sacrifice their happiness for others. I’ve done it myself…but I do find when I realise and remind myself that happiness is within me and actually consciously chosen by me, life gets a whole lot better! 🙂

  1. I am signed up for their emails, but I rarely read them. I do primordial sound meditation, which I think is to do with Chopra – but I’ve not managed for ages. This post has inspired me to get back to it though so thank you!
