Happiness lies within us.

January 26 , 2010

20 years ago, I was in Toronto, Canada, thinking to myself "Canada is a horrible place to live. Too cold. If I can just make it to the United States, THEN I'll be happy. If I can just make it to Miami Beach and spend all day on the hot sunny beach, THEN life will be incredible."

Even when, many years and a lot of misery later, I decided to move from Miami Beach to Fairfield, Iowa, I thought to myself "If I can just make it to Fairfield, THEN life will be incredible. Fairfield, Iowa's population is made up of about 50% meditators, the crime rate is low, the food is organic over there, all I have to do is move to Fairfield, Iowa and life will finally be everything I want it to be.

 

Wherever I go, there I am.

Only problem is: WHEREVER I GO, THERE I AM. Everywhere I go, I bring ME along, I bring my nervous system, my brain, my self along. It's still ME, whether I'm standing among palm trees or snow banks.

Don't get me wrong: Fairfield, Iowa truly is a wonderful place to live. Great place to raise children. But HAPPINESS ITSELF is not located in Fairfield, Iowa anymore than HAPPINESS is located on a hot sunny beach in Florida anymore than HAPPINESS is located behind the wheel of a $300,000 Ferrari anymore than HAPPINESS is located in the jacuzzi of a $5 million mansion.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi tells us that "HAPPINESS IS A SIMPLE AFFAIR, BECAUSE IT LIES WITHIN US."

We don't have to GO anywhere to get it. Happiness lies within us. However we do need to experience our own nature, to live it. In fact, one good way to not experience happiness is to run around here and there on the outside looking for it, which is exactly what I've done for a long time.

 

How to experience one's own nature? I can sit quiet on the bed in my room, close my eyes, and experience more joy and awe from the practice of Transcendental Meditation and the TM-SIDHI program than from any special-effects-filled Hollywood movie I would care to watch.

Speaking of Hollywood movies, did you know that the creator of the movie "Star Wars" George Lucas is a long time practitioner of Transcendental Meditation? The Beatles, the Beach Boys have been involved with Transcendental Meditation and even spent time with Maharishi personally.

Jerry Seinfeld has been practicing TM for over 30 years, so has radio-personality Howard Stern and so has movie director David Lynch of "Twin Peaks" fame. Dr. Lynch is now promoting change in America through Consciousness-Based Education with his David Lynch Foundation.

 

 

Quinoa: a great source of protein for vegetarians

And now, on a completely unrelated note, (Hey I own this website, don't I? I can do whatever I want! What do you want from me?) I wish to tell you about a wonderful food I will be having for dinner tonight: quinoa.

Quinoa is a great source of complete vegetable protein, great for vegetarians, it has a low glycemix index and is as simple to prepare as rice. Cook for 15 minutes, add some great spices, some tasty veggies, a little olive oil or a little ghee and you're good to go!

I will be cooking some organic quinoa tonight with my favorite stainless steel rice cooker. I like this particular stainless steel rice cooker because the actual COOKING SURFACE, not the exterior, is made of stainless steel.

90% of the "stainless steel" rice cookers you will see out there are made of stainless steel on the OUTSIDE, and have a cooking surface made of either non-stick material or aluminium, none of which you want in your food.

"I am that, thou art that, all this is that." - Upanishads

Sending my love,

Marc
