Almost all the religious scriptures, scientific findings and philosophical thoughts are towards one end and that is happiness. There is no dearth of knowledge on the subject matter of happiness. We have tried to put together the different aspects and ingredients of happiness under one roof and hence this book.
We shall be chiefly concentrating on relationships, health, success, money, social improvement, living in today and celebrating life today. For these ideas to work for you, no amount of good writing or good presentation is going to help you; unless and until you master the art yourself. It is you who have to take the first step and taking this step is probably the most important step in your life.
Do not worry; the first step need not disturb you. A mere resolution to be happier, to do something for your own happiness, to improve your health, relationships, is enough. And this resolution itself is the first step. Once you have properly resolved and you take our meditational courses, your mind will automatically guide you to take the necessary steps in all the areas of your existence.
Regarding health, it is not possible to start the exercises, yogasana, pranayama or meditation immediately. Though with as small as three days of resolution of keeping themselves healthier, it has been found that people have started to be more conscious of their food, and have resolved to walk.
So in order to make the entire concept of happiness work for you, you have to bring them to your own experiential level and for that you have to take the first step. Go on making a mental image of the areas of your life that determine your happiness and go on taking the first step in each of the areas so as to increase your happiness. Do not worry about the efficacy of the steps, mere resolution will do. It’s time to engage. It’s time for you to take your first step regarding your health, your body, your mind, your relationships, job, success, money and so on. Close your eyes make a picture, write them in your diary or in the ‘Share Your Happiness’ section below. This will create a profit of resolution you have made. Once we train our self to take the first step we will automatically learn to live in the present and won’t procrastinate the good things in life. Inviting all bad thoughts and insecurities is by far one of the major reasons of miseries of mankind. So take the first step, take it today, take it now!
