Several years ago, I attended a seminar in Tampa conducted by motivational speaker and author Marci Shimoff. Marci had just published a book entitled Happy for No Reason. At the beginning of the seminar, she declared that happiness is what people most want in life.
On December 21st, our Spirit Quest group met to celebrate the coming New Era, as symbolized by the end of the Mayan Long Count calendar on that date and 5,125 years of human fear, ignorance, and greed. Since that meeting and with the emergence of the New Era, I have found myself in a state of gentle bliss that has been nearly impervious to daily irritations and frustrations which, until now, have always undermined my joy and serenity.
