Transcript of HAPPINESS
and FULFILLMENT Determines the quality of every instant of our life HAPPINESS or well-being is not just a mere pleasurable sensation. it`s a state that
pervades and underlies ALL Emotional states Outer conditions
do affect In the end the mind translates everything and generates the emotional states EVEN in very difficult circumstances,
HAPPY PEOPLE manage to keep
serenity, inner strength,
inner freedom, confidence In our search for Happiness Very often, we look outside to DO to HAVE We want to have everything to be happy.
If we miss something, our happiness collapses but our control of the outer world is
limited, temporary, and often, illusory. BUT WE need to train our mind to generate POSITIVE REACTIONS according to the outer conditions Meditators have been
participating in experiments in
labs in Madison, Wisconsin
and in Berkeley. More activity in
the right side of the prefrontal cortex are more
depressed, withdrawn. More activity in left side = tendency to altruism,
to happiness, to express, and curiosity With their help scientists discovered differences
in the activity of the right and the left frontal lobe IN the END
HAPPINESS IS NOT
outside, in things or people HAPPINESS
is in our MIND They are able to control their emotional response
more than it could be thought and even avoid
being startled in experiments intended to do so Some meditators show results
completely outside the charts. is the ultimate thing that determines the
QUALITY of our experience IF the way our mind functions Shouldn't we train our mind as much as our body
To live a happier, more meaningful life. Inspired by
