+ Quote of the Day: Doing without happiness

[ Posted on 06.17.2014 ]

“Unquestionably, it is possible to do without happiness; it is done involuntarily by nineteen-twentieths of mankind.” John Stuart Mill Or — “Although it may not seem obvious at first, people are actually unhappy because they want or choose to be. They believe they should be. They believe it is good and necessary to be unhappy about their experience of of getting what they want, or what they believe they need, or not being who they believe they should be.

[ Posted on 04.30.2014 ]

I’m so grateful for this wonderful rainy day. Coming in from a session with my Alexander Technique teacher. She and I worked together to remind my body of what it feels like to think, not do.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (28 August 1749 – 22 March 1832)
