Happiness is available to all of us but elusive at times. Recently a Tibetan Buddhist monk, Matthieu Ricard was given the superhero title of “Happiest Man Alive”. His secret? Meditation!
I know. I know. It’s hard to believe that yoga and meditation (simple things that you need very little to actually practice) are the key to so many benefits. As research proved, scans of Ricard’s brain actually showed while meditating on compassion “an excessive activity in his brain left prefrontal cortex compared to its right counterpart, allowing him an abnormally large capacity for happiness and a reduced propensity toward negativity. ” (source: click here)
Life for for all of us has ups and downs. Pains and pleasures. Highs and lows. Meditation practice is an anchor. It draws you back to center every time. Center is where the magic is. It is the seat of true authentic happiness. Nothing will bring you closer to center than a commitment to a practice that teaches you about yourself.
