How to create more happiness: Step #4

Audio only version is here.

Hello. I am so happy we have a chance to sit together.

Before today’s 10-minute sit, I offer you some thoughts on the fourth paramita or transcendent action: exertion. It is really easy to lose the energy to act in this crazy, wonderful, confounding world of ours. In this video, I suggest to you a way to constantly access and re-access the source of innate vitality.(And if you’re just joining the Open Heart Project, welcome!! There is nothing to catch up on, you can just jump in right here.)


With love,

    I was wandering among the stacks in the library some weeks ago looking for a book to teach me how to meditate. I happened upon your book, Start Here Now. I admit that the original allure was how small it was, but now I’m amazed at the serendipity of the situation because I am now meditating with you from the emails you send out. I’m still a beginner, but am allowing myself baby steps. I just wanted to say thank you.

    P.S. I love your sense of humor. I can’t remember if that’s one of the paramitas. If not, it should be!

      Lovely, wonderful, perfect! So glad to hear this, Bonnie. And, agreed, humor should definitely be one of the paramitas… <3
