7x24 OF BLISS?

My boat partner, on his airplane trip home to America from India where he had been studying meditation, sent me a hand-written message, “After searching in seminars, reading, speakers, I have become aware, “All happiness is already available to me in the Serenity Prayer.” “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”

Epictetus the Stoic Greek Philosopher said on a similar subject, “Freedom is the only worthy goal in life, it is won by disregarding things that are beyond our control.”

Before I learned the following, “If I can’t learn to master my thinking, I am in deep trouble forever.” I had accepted that my mind controls my life.

To some extent, my mind influences my health, my prosperity, my happiness and every aspect of my life.

When I learned to focus on love, good health, compassion, happiness and helping others through study and meditation there was a reduction in or elimination of stress, worry, anger and resentment.

I realized I could have 7x24 of bliss, and I find that appealing.
