Radical Welcome, and the Habits of Highly Happy People

Share it Please
Happiness, it seems, has more to do with life long habits, than it does with single events, such as winning the lottery. Habits such as helping other people, making in-person, face-to-face connections, and having deep connecting conversations are the kind of habits that lead to a life of happiness, and help us to become resilient during times of stress.

This week, Dr. Edward shares a message about being a radically welcoming community, and mimicking the habits of highly happy people.  Sustaining pledgers Ann and Kevin Hutchinson write this about our community:
"Regular Sunday morning attendance keeps us grounded and centered throughout the week. One particular workshop set my husband and me on a course of daily spiritual practice that has lasted for years and improved every aspect of our lives. The Center provides a haven for people of any—or even no—belief system, for people at any stage of spiritual growth. All are welcome at the Center; no one is judged. Lives are transformed here. The music and message are always positive and uplifting — the focus is on oneness and God as Love. The teaching reminds us we are all perfect God-beings, and that we can make a difference in the world around us."

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
