    Hope & Service: A Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    Thank you for listening to Happiness Index and we are continuing our conversation on service.  Today we deepen the conversation with the theme Hope & Service: A Path to Happiness."  Our current President, Barack Obama said, “The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.” Today is Easter Sunday. It is a time of forgiveness, a time for us to look upon each other with different eyes, a time for the gift of lilies. Let us look with fresh eyes this coming Easter; let us let forgiveness be the way we walk with each.  This is a time of renewal and a time to start anew and let our past go.  Our focus today will be on the value of hope to inspire us to serve and how forgiveness can be our fuel for service.  Thank you for listening to Happiness Index on Blog Talk Radio.  Join us in this conversation and make the world better for all, call (347) 539-5818.

    Service: A Path to Happiness and Love

    in Relationships

    Thank you for joining us on Happiness Index, as we continue to deepen the conversation about service.  The theme for the show today is, Service: A Path to Happiness and Love.   We suggest that if you want happiness and love service is the path to take. You want a better community, then give of yourself. You want a happier life then find someone to serve.  Examples of great leaders are, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Buddha, Muhammad, Jesus, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa, Princess Diana to name but a few. All these leaders have one thing in common they served and went beyond a call of duty.  One of the better-known benefits of serving is the impact on the community and the person who is being of service. People who volunteer are the glue that holds a community together.  The beautiful thing about service is that the person who gives of him or herself receives the benefit of giving.  Giving and receiving are the same. As we continue this topic of Service, we will be happy, because we will serve as we encourage you to serve.  The benefits of service:  1. Service connects you to others 2. It helps you to make new friends and contacts 3.  You gain new skills 4.  Be happy find someone and somewhere to serve.  Dr. Martin Luther King said, Everyone has the power for greatness -- not for fame, but greatness, because greatness is determined by service.  Service is a matter of devotion and love!  You can share your wisdom on this topic by calling (347) 539-5818

    We continue our discussion on Music: A Path to Happiness. The idea that music can have therapeutic value is far from new. Egypt, chant therapies were seen as integral to the healing process. According to new research, people love music for much the same reason they’re drawn to sex, drugs, and gambling and delicious food. When you listen to tunes that move you, the study found, your brain releases dopamine, a chemical involved in both motivation and addiction.  Please join the conversation by calling 1(347) 539-5818.

    Hope: A Path to Happiness featuring Kokomon Clottey

    in Relationships

    Today our focus will be on Hope: Path to Happiness. For many Non Christians, Easter means little more than fluffy bunnies and chocolate eggs. I must admit that I once watched children hunting for Easter eggs and saw the joy the bounty brought. However, the Story of Easter is a high point on the Christian calendar of the journey of Jesus the Christ, from death to resurrection.  This coming Sunday, April 5th is Easter.  It is a time of forgiveness, a time for us to look upon each other with different eyes, a time to give the gift of lilies. Let us look with fresh eyes on each other and all things this coming Easter; let us let forgiveness be the way we walk with each.  This is a time of renewal and a time to start anew and let our past go.  Join the conversation as we explore the power of hope and the role hope plays every day.  Tune in to a Happiness Index and join us by dialing (347) 539-5818 and share your wisdom on this 2000-year-old story.

    Responsibility: A Path to Happiness featuring Kokomon Clottey

    in Relationships

    Welcome to Happiness Index!  Today, our focus will be on the role we play each moment each day to effect and ignite happiness. “I am responsible for what I see. I choose the feelings I experience, and I decide upon the goal I would achieve. And everything that seems to happen to me I ask for, and receive as I have asked”.  The following quote is taken from A course in Miracles. As we come to the realization of the source of our happiness, we can make changes. We can choose to be happy learners.  We can make happiness our choice and we can choose love over fear, peace instead of conflict.  We can choose to be responsible for every choice that we make. Join us in this conversation and make the world better for all, call (347) 539-5818.
