Sustained Happiness Starts from Within

Sustained Happiness Starts from Within

 “What is happiness? We can say happiness is this or that, but in terms of life, your life energies are happening in a more exuberant way than it normally happens,” according to yogi, visionary, and thought leader Sadhguru.
Although children are naturally happy with things as simple as an empty box or a bucket of sand and some water, the cost of happiness increases in adulthood, Sadhguru explains. Many adults find that their happiness depends on outside forces, such as relying on someone else, obtaining something else, or engaging in additional activities.
“Everybody has been happy, but the problem is they’re not able to maintain it,” Sadhguru notes.
“All this effort of life, everything that you did — education, career, business, family, whatever you did — was in pursuit of happiness. Everything that humanity has done on this planet is in pursuit of happiness,” he observes. But these factors can be seen as externally rather than internally driven.
By contrast, another way to achieve sustained, long-term happiness involves starting from the inside. Sadhguru’s latest book, “Inner Engineering” offers guidance on how to achieve long-term happiness by focusing on yourself. The role of an Isha yoga practice, as outlined by Sadhguru, is one element in the process of developing sustained happiness.
Isha yoga can help individuals develop happiness from within by building confidence and health.
According to a recent survey of 536 adults who practiced Isha yoga, 98 percent reported improved mental clarity, 94 percent reported improved inner peace, and 92 percent reported improved emotional balance.
In addition, the Inner Engineering course “helps you put your life on self-start so you become in charge of your happiness, joy, and peace,” according to Sadhguru.
The course includes guidance on how to manage all aspects of one’s being: mind, body, emotions, and “the fundamental life energy within.” Interested individuals who have read Sadhguru’s book and taken the Inner Engineering course online may be able to attend in-person classes this spring.
Sadhguru will be conducting Inner Engineering in Spring, 2017, starting on April 29-30 in Tampa, Florida, and May 27-28 in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Olympic Power Couple Teams Up to Fight Blood Cancers with Team In Training

Olympic track and field stars, Ashton Eaton and his wife, Brianne Theisen-Eaton, have joined The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training as National Ambassadors.

The power couple will support this iconic endurance sports training program in its quest to cure blood cancers, the third leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S.
Fresh off of their medal-winning Olympics in Rio de Janeiro last summer, the Eatons announced their retirement in January, looking for their next challenge. For their entire professional career, they have competed for different teams — Ashton for the United States, Brianne for Canada — but now they will be joining the same team, Team In Training (TNT).
LLS invented the concept of sports endurance training for charity with the 1988 NYC Marathon. Since then, Team In Training has raised more than $1.5 billion for research and patient support, trained more than 650,000 people, and helped LLS invest more than $1 billion in research to advance breakthrough cancer treatments.
The Eatons will be raising awareness for Team In Training’s new Offerings. No longer just marathons, Team In Training’s portfolio now includes high profile cycling, hiking and climbing events, including teams training to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. All events offer the program’s mainstay coaching, community support and camaraderie, and a new, innovative training app, to take teammates from training to finish line.
As Team In Training gears up for its 30th anniversary, the Eatons will be raising awareness for the work LLS does to find cancer cures by advancing cutting-edge research, funded in part through Team In Training.
Ashton Eaton, a two-time gold medal winner in the Decathlon, regarded as the “World’s Greatest Athlete,” says, “Team In Training is the perfect fit for Brianne and me. Our careers have been about chasing personal goals that might seem impossible, while representing something bigger than ourselves. We couldn’t be prouder to come on board.”
Brianne Eaton, a bronze medalist in the Heptathlon, adds, “We strive to provide inspiration and encouragement to Team In Training teammates and coaches, to promote personal mastery while raising funds for LLS’s mission — to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.”
“Ashton and Brianne are set to start energizing Team In Training teammates across the country and the world,” says LLS’s CEO, Dr. Louis J. DeGennaro. “Their involvement will help us create significant awareness for LLS as we raise much-needed funds for research and patient support to make someday today for blood cancer patients.”
So join the Team!
