Spirit Muse Sunday THE SKILL OF HAPPINESS

Spirit Muse Sunday

Ricard Matthieu
After training in biochemistry at the Institute Pasteur, Matthieu Ricard left science behind to
move to the Himalayas and become a Buddhist monk--to pursue happiness at the basic human level, and as a subject of inquiry. Achieving happiness, he has come to believe, requires the same kind of effort and mind training that
any other serious pursuit involves.

A Guide To Developing
Life's Most Important Skill
Each video runs from 5 to 10 minutes.

They can be sampled like chapters in a book.
Each is accompanied by his
magnificent photographs.

i sure hope lots of people listen to these tapes and benefit from them. this is the kind of teaching that should be done in schools. i really like when he says: "we are like a pauper who has a big piece of gold under his hat but doesn't know about it".

I do the 'arranging' rather methodically, while having the pleasure of listening to each one. Usually over a few days. It's very satisfying.

I like so many quotable phrases, I couldn't pick one, or even many without listening again. I did that this morning on waking, and will surely do so many times, but not tonight.

I have some things I must go do, but I will return when I can sit and listen. Thanks for putting this together Michelle. (((hugs)))
