Loving Mind Taoism
Everyone desires happiness. Of course there is the happiness of a birthday party or the happiness
of falling in love. There also is happiness of life. Wikipedia describes it this way "Happiness is a mental or emotional
state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy."
Happiness is a state of mind not an event. We can experience happiness most of the time even if we
are not conscious of it. We can be happy when we are shopping or we can be happy when we're washing the dishes. Most of
the time happiness is in common everyday living, nothing special. We can experience happiness wheater watching a sunset or
when we are just walking down the street thinking about nothing..
shown that unhappiness is caused by actual events 10 percent of the time and by perception of events 40 percent of the time.
In the Taoist principle of yin yang there cannot be happiness without unhappiness. How can we know happiness if we do not

you have equal happiness and unhappiness it is just balanced for your life.
is one of the best tools we have for a living with happiness and receive goodness from others. You may have noticed that when
you do something nice for others, or show people love how they respond with something good for you. The good is not always
from the person we helped. Many people tell us that they feel happy when the do something for others. When we are in a loving
space we send out energy that people pickup and respond in a more positive nature to us.
When we recognize the power of the mind and trust the mind we will discover the power of our mind to achieve our goals. It
retains a record of everything that has happened to us. When our mind knows our intention it will access the information and
the mind provides us with the right course of action to reach our intention. We are unaware of this. When we listen to our
intuition we are listening to our mind and its solutions. I find most of the time when I listen to intuition I do the right
thing which brings success. Happiness comes with success.
