As a business, creative and personal/spiritual coach, I love to help people get their happy on, because this is where it begins. Then, we can work on the step-by-step actions that lead to FAR more effective and long-lasting good results.
This awesome song performed by Keb’ Mo’ and Daryl Hall on Live From Daryl’s House reminded me of the German folk tale about the Fisherman and His Wife. The man encountered a magic fish, who could grant wishes. He shared this with his wife, who kept sending him back to the fish with bigger and more grandiose demands. The fish kept granting her wishes until, at last, enough was enough. The fish undid all the changes, because the wife had not appreciated any of them. She could not receive, accept or hold her good.
She did not understand that a happy heart IS everything and it is from this spiritual stance that all manner of good flows. “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you.”
