Reads...Choose To Be Happy by Swami Chetanananda



This is another one of those books I have had forever and love. I found it years ago on a trip to California and no matter how much time passes, I always seem to go back to it again and again. Probably for all profound little gems like this one..."when you don't know what to do, pause for a moment. Sit down, be quiet, consider the first step, take it. Then think about the next step. Do research if it's appropriate; create a framework, but don't look too far down the road. That way, the first step can create a flow from which all other steps will follow. If you act from a deep place within you, that place will guide you ". I have been in the habit over the years of writing a little inscription on the inside of a book when I buy it, either to remember the day I bought it or what was going on in my life at the time, so when I look back on it, I can remember a day I might otherwise have forgotten. On the inside of this one I wrote..." California dreamin' and a few lazy days, palm trees and sweet honeysuckle. Seeking myself and a bit of zen, found again although I was never really lost. February 10, 2002. A good day, a very good day ".
