Lately I’ve been giving my personal mission statement (sorry for the cliché) a bit of thought, and this is what I’ve come up with:
- Life is a game.
- Happiness is a choice.
- We have power.
“Life is a game,” to me, means that we chose our path and our meaning–no one chooses it for us.
“Happiness is a choice” means that we have the ability to change our thoughts and internal dialogue for the better.
“We have power” means that our ability to control our lives is far greater than any of us realize.
And all three statements together make, I think, a very good foundational philosophy. And that’s what I want to bring to this blog every day.
I hope it happens.
I know way, way too many people that aren’t happy.

Inspiration from the other side.
You’ve been on the spiritual path for a good while now. You’ve read the books. Maybe even met a guru or two. Sometimes, though, you need a different kind of inspiration. Inspiration from someone who knows how hard this inner peace stuff really is.
