"I am often accused of being childish. I prefer to interpret that as child-like. I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things. I tend to exaggerate and fantasize and embellish. I still listen to instinctual urges. I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind. I never water my garden without soaking myself. It has been after such times of joy that I have achieved my greatest creativity and produced my best work." ~ Leo Buscaglia

We'll take a deep dive into the benefits of the science-based system and learn how to connect more intimately with our hearts intelligence and deeper intuition.
Symptoms of Peace
Tendency to think and act spontaneously
Rather than from fear,
An unmistakable ability to enjoy the moment,
Loss of interest in judging other people,
Loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others,
Loss of interest in conflict,
Loss of interest or ability to worry (very serious symptom)
Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation,
Feelings of connectedness with others and with nature,
Frequent attacks of smiling through your eyes
And from your heart,
Increasing tendency to let things happen
Rather than make them happen,
Increased susceptibility to love extended by others
As well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.
~ Native American Cultural Center
“We are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds. We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil. Serenity is contagious. If we smile at someone, he or she will smile back. And a smile costs nothing. We should plague everyone with joy. If we are to die in a minute, why not die happily, laughing?” ~ Swami Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras
"We should plague everyone with joy."
Plague everyone you know and don't know with joy and sprinkle it with love.
“According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don't bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous." ~ Deepak Chopra
"When all your desires are distilled: you will cast just two votes:
To love more, and be happy". ~ Hafiz
