Creating Happy
Grow thyself.
My religion.
The universe is all that is
or ever was.

…000,000,000…
…000,000,000
(~2.5 octillion)
Bang, The Big
You are a highly organized
matrix of big bang.
You are the universe.
You are the world
and everything that’s in it.
You are a highly organized
matrix of big bang…
…and stardust.
Within you is
the Light of a Thousand Suns.
- Robert Adams
You are part of the slimy film coating a
rock adrift in the inky blackness of space.
The slime, the rock, and you share a
...
The brain creates
the mind.
D'où venons nous? Que sommes-nous? Où allons-nous?
(Where do we come from? Who are we? Where are we going?)

Paul Gauguin,...
Survival ain’t easy.
We are the product of
millions of years of
sustained conflict.
So much to be
happy about.
So why all the
Fear?
We are trying to solve
the wrong problem.
WHAT IS YOUR GOAL IN LIFE?
Grow
Company

Get a Great
Job

Boyfriend /
Girlfriend

What is happiness?
Don’t pursue happiness.
Create it!
Some humble suggestions.
1. Recognize the miracle.
(Accept the damn gift.)
The clock is ticking.
2. Relinquish control
(Don’t try to use the external
to fix the internal.)
If you are trying to
avoid pain...
…then pain is
running your life.
2. Accept control
You don’t need
anyone’s permission.
Only you can write the
script of your life.
Don’t let anyone else
hold the pen.
3. The voices in your head
are fearful.
“All life is suffering.”
-- Buddha
Fear is the universal
language of the psyche.
It is the root cause of all
negative thoughts and
emotions.
Your psyche is built of
vapor to which you cling to
create a sense of stability.
So the path to
happiness is lit by
broade...
4. Find the True You.
(The One Who Sees All)
You are not your
thinking mind.
You are the one who is
aware of your thinking
mind.
5. Stay out of the garbage.
(Don’t participate; just watch.)
You are addicted to
your fears.
Recognize the absurdity of
constantly listening to the
ravings of lunatics.
How much time have you
spent resisting what has
already happened and
what might happen?
It is not life’s events that
cause unhappiness.

It is your resistance
to life’s events.
Everything will be okay
when you are ok with
everything.
And that’s the only time
everything will be okay.
6. Be quiet. Accept.
(Relax and release.)
Enjoy the show….
…but stop
participating in it.
Playfully detach.
Just regularly remind
yourself to watch your
mind...
… and to stay
the hell out of it.
Create regular moments of
centered consciousness.
Eventually, the triggers will
not suck you in….
…they will simply remind
you that you’re watching.
What used to hold you
down...
…will awaken you.
7. Transcend the tendency to
avoid the fear of pain.
Let it pass through you like the
wind through the reeds.
Don’t close ...
If the avoidance of pain is the
reason for your actions…
…every one of those actions
will have the power to inflict
pain u...
If you react to pain by
closing ranks around it…
…it will remain within you.
If you close around
something…
…you will be psychologically
sensitive to it
for the rest of your life.
When your life is no longer
run by fear of pain…
…you will be free
to be happy.
There is an ocean of love and
peace and serenity
within you.
8. Maintain a cosmic perspective.
• Insert picture of you are here galaxy
Permit the world to be
what it is.
Psst… it’s none of your
business.
When bad things happen,
don’t ask, “How can I
fix this?”
Ask, “Who am I
that is aware of this?”
9. There is only one question:
Do you want to be happy?
There is only one answer:
Unconditionally, yes.
Some part of you thinks
there are good reasons for
being unhappy.
That part of you
is mistaken.
No matter what happens...
...leave your heart open and
honor the life you
experience.
The clock is ticking.
What you are doing at every
moment is something
someone else was doing
when they died.
10. Be someone the gods want to
hang out with.
Satchitananda:
Eternal, cosmic bliss.
When you are done playing
with the temporary and the
finite…
...you will open to the
eternal and the infinite.
12. It is better to be kind
than to be right.
Imagine if relationships were
about getting to know other
people instead of tending to
your issues?
To get closer to others,
let go of yourself.
Consider: regret.
Great minds
think a lot.
