Nurture Your Happiness
Pay attention to the quality of mind you are nurturing in this moment. That quality is the messenger of your life. Now is the time to nurture happiness and well-being.
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian
Paying attention, moment by moment, to our moods, to our thoughts will then be realized in our speech and in our actions. Notice what brings you down. And notice what nurtures your happiness. Spending time in nature or with your pets? Having an uplifting conversation, or reading something uplifting? When we are present to our quality of mind, we can "course-correct" when we notice that we are unhappy, sad or angry. When we nurture our happiness our relationships improve, people want to be around us and we feel good. We feel right with the world. Our meditation practice teaches us to pay attention to the quality of our mind. Now is the time.
