I Wish You Happiness!



” There is a powerful exercise, quite simple , which I began to use many, many years ago.
Who would I have met on the way , be it a person or an insect , the first thought that I assume with respect to this point: “I wish you happiness ! ” But most importantly, that this idea was indeed the very first , “I wish you happiness .”

I say this from personal experience .
Sometimes it’s very difficult when you meet the enemy when you find yourself face to face with an unexpected tough situation …
And at this point you get an opportunity to create more space around you … You see how it pops up this negative emotion , and before it will take “up” over you , you have time to convert it … You see everything as it is: that’s evident ignorance ; anger – not that other, as ignorance from my side, from their side..
Convert him, let go , turn into love.
Try it and see how much everything will change in your life . ”
~ Richard Gere
