The Ultimate Happiness Prescription 7 Keys to Joy and Enlightenment Read more at Suite101: The Ultimate Happiness Prescription; A Review: Happiness G

The Seven Steps

The following is a basic description of Deepak Chopra’s 7 keys to happiness. Everyone is encouraged to take the vow of non-violence and explore the keys at

  • Being aware of your body initiates the key to happiness. Awareness lies deep inside interconnected with the mind and spirit. Intelligence, creativity and being powerful makes the body respond and begin to ground itself and sprout roots of happiness throughout the body.
  • True self-esteem stems from letting go of the idea of a self image and embracing the true self, where happiness lives independently and fearlessly.
  • Detoxifying all the contaminants that clog your life and your body, blocking happiness from entering and thriving inside your soul. For example anger, anxiety, toxic substances and relationships.
  • Giving up being right and integrating defenselessness, makes one take notice in the lessened desire to attack and make someone be wrong. Encompassing wholeness and profound peace.
  • Living in the present reminds us that every situation comes and goes, reminding us that nothing lasts forever and that everything changes. When the restless activity of the mind reminds us of who itthinks we are, we remind it that we represent now and forever, making us infinite.
  • Seeing the world in you allows the world to become connected with our true being. Being aware and mindful reminds us that love heals and connects us with the deepest level of consciousness.
  • Live for Enlightenment. When we begin to understand that enlightenment is the most natural state of being, you realize the time that has gone wasted living in the past. When you wake up to Enlightenment, freedom takes the drivers’ seat.

Let Go and Let God

Deepak Chopra has invited the world with an urgent call to unite and begin to understand that the world is one and we have a nature that calls that goes beyond all boundaries. Quoting and amply named band Nirvana, Kurt Cobain sang “all in all is all we are”. Once the people of the world understand that everything one person does, another person is also part of that action. The energy that happiness brings can change anyone under its dominant shadow to see the light. With that in mind, the reader begins to comprehend that in order for anything or anyone to change; it first begins with awareness of consciousness.

Disappointment and Perspective.

Disappointment and Perspective.

Being disappointed is all about perspective. It took me a long time to realize this. I was under the impression that if someone did something I didn't like, or a situation evolved that I wasn't happy with, then I had the "right" to be disappointed. I never once thought it was just my perception of the matter that was causing my disappointment and that I could control this!

What I slowly began to realize through studying myself, as well as paying attention to others around me, was that those things that would upset me, would not upset someone else. I also noticed that those things that appeared to be the biggest deal to someone else, only made me laugh. So what was going on? Obviously, it couldn't be the situation itself because that was the one constant thing in each equation. What did change was who was interpreting the situation. That was what was different. So I began to wonder if my perception of a situation, any situation, was something I could control? Could I change the way I perceived something, and therefore, change my emotional reaction? I discovered, that yes it was possible. I wasn't necessarily in control over what happened to me, or around me, but I was definitely in control over how I responded to those situations.

I began to play with this idea a bit. I believe that the people in our lives are great mirrors for how we think and behave, and therefore, can be great educational tools.

What I began to see over and over again was that when most of us get upset it is for one reason and one reason only. The universe is not behaving the way we believe it should behave. This could mean that we didn't get the raise we believed we were entitled too, so we become disappointed. If we had not expected a raise in the first place, however, we never would have been disappointed would we? It could also mean that someone does not treat us in a particular way that we believe we should be treated. Or our dreams don't turn out the way we believe they should have turned out. Or an investment didn't work out the way we thought it would. Or someone dies before we believe they should die. It can be as heavy as that. I am not saying it isn't sad, but at the same time it isn't our choice to say how long someone is to live, now is it? Those are our perceptions of what we want, of how we want the universe to behave. When we get disappointed, we never stop and think that it is our perceptions or beliefs that are wrong. We think it is the universe that is wrong because of how we feel personally! That is a pretty grand stand to take when you think about it. Images

So how do we change our perceptions? By becoming more aware of what your perceptions and beliefs are. You cannot change what you do not understand. So spend some time looking internally and when you become disappointed, think about what is disappointing you. Is it really the situation or the person, or is it because they are not behaving in a way you believe they should behave? Then slowly as you do this, force yourself to look at the bigger picture of what is going on. Force yourself to see the situation from a new perspective and offer positive spins on what has happened. I believe that the more you do this, the less you will be disappointed because you will stop taking things so personally. You will also begin to realize that the way things turn out are the way things are supposed to turn out, whether they are in line with your beliefs or not. This will lead you to feeling more in control of your emotions as well as of your behaviors and actions. You will also be able to use any challenge as an opportunity to grow, develop, and move your life forward, because you will not continuously be knocked down by disappointment.

Valley of flowers ( upper Bhyundar Valley )

Last 3 year planning to go fairy land called Valley of flowers also known as upper Bhyundar Valley, But every time there is issue. Well this time also there was issue , but inspired by poem “tumi ekla chalo..” (Walk Alone friend..) Started my journey alone.

About valley

Local knew existence about this Bhyundar valley ( Valley of flowers) for centuries also called playground of Fairies and Nymphs . But it not very popular in outside of world , despite huge pligirm visit near by famous temple Badrinath , since 9th Century.

“I hope generously, my ignorance must judge for myself whether the Bhyundar Valley deserves its title the Valley of Flowers. Others will visit it, analyze it and probe it but, whatever their opinions, to me it will remain the ‘Valley of Flowers’ a valley of peace and perfect beauty where the human spirit may find repose” — Frank S.

Points of Power .

With every single person you come into contact, you are either giving love or you're not.And based on what you give, that is what you receive.

Give love to others through kindness,encouragement,support,gratitude,or any good feeling , and it comes back to you multiplied in every area of your life.

Look for the things you love in a relationship more than you notice negative things and it will appear as if something incredible has happened to the other person.

Trying to change another person, thinking you know what is best for another person, thinking you are right and another person is wrong is not giving love !

You have to be happy to receive the happy versions of other people !

The force of love presents you with a whole array of Personal Emotional Trainers, disguised as everyday people, but they are all training you to choose love !

Life is presenting every person and circumstance to you so you can choose what you love and what you don't love.When you react to anything you are reacting with your feelings, and as you do,you are choosing it !

Changing the way you feel is easy compared to running around trying to change the circumstances of the outside world.Change your feelings and the outside circumstances will change !

From the book ''The Power'' by Rhonda Byrne.

boss who makes your life hell

If you have a boss who makes your life hell, then read on to know how to tackle it

Most people can say they have worked for a bad boss. So, if you too are dealing with a similar situation, what can you do to survive?

Get training for your boss

It is possible it's a training problem. Maybe the boss never had any training in leadership, supervision or diversity. Talk to the human resources department. If not, you might need to talk to your boss. Directly, but politely, tell him or her about your needs for timely, specific feedback or goals.

Develop a positive relationship

The boss is more apt to help you if he or she likes you. Of course, depending on what negative things the boss does, this might not be a plausible strategy. If it makes sense to do this, then get to know your boss as a person. The more you understand him or her, the more you might be able to help meet his or her needs and yours as a result.

Understand your boss' moods

While it would be great if we never had to worry about the boss' moods and reactions to things, the reality is that we do need to know these things. Maybe there are certain times such as end-of-the-month number crunching when it would be smart to postpone a talk with the boss. It just means you need to pay attention to your boss and learn how and when to best communicate.

Keep your boss informed

It is important to periodically keep your boss informed about things you are doing to support the department or the firm. Bosses don't know everything that is going on. They do like to hear what you are doing to support their agenda and mission in the firm.

Find a mentor with the company

If you love the nature of your work or your firm but hate your boss, another solution is to develop a mentoring relationship with a manager or peer in another department or part of the company.Mentors can provide the career guidance and visibility you need to help you move forward in the organization. They can also provide you with needed psycho-social support and offer sound advice. HT Delhi 12-SEP-10
