If we pay attention, there are periods in our lives when it seems like the Universe is trying to tell us something. It may come in the form of books that someone recommends, or certain people that pop up in your life, or opportunities that arise and they all seem to point you in the same direction. This has certainly been the case for me this past couple of years; that same certain message being whispered in my ear over and over again.
In my case, the message has been, “as Editor of INSIGHT, you have the responsibility and opportunity to help make the world a better place. You have the opportunity to share information with the world that can not only improve the lives of individuals but maybe even the world as a whole.” These whispers led me to our cover story “Finding Happiness”.
Our founding fathers ensured that as Americans we all have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and for that we should all be eternally grateful. But this one word, “pursuit” has always troubled me. Why are so many of us always pursuing happiness and does anyone actually ever arrive?
As I contemplate this question it brings me to more questions. As citizens of the richest nation in the world, we should have the best chance at grabbing it and holding on to it…right? If happiness is possible anywhere on earth, shouldn’t it be here? And if that is true, then why do so many Americans find happiness so elusive?
Maybe the answer to that last question can be explained by the complexity of our world. As we become more advanced life is supposed to become simpler but instead there seems to be more and more to do. And with opportunity there is the temptation for greed, corruption, and a self-serving attitude.
Inside this addition of INSIGHT you will be given the opportunity to contemplate this question for yourself and come to your own conclusions.
I became the Editor of this fine community Directory/Magazine to help others find their own kind of happiness through doing what they love and to inspire people to total mind, body and spiritual wellness. I have the responsibility and the personal delight to share possibilities and encourage change for the betterment of us all.
With that said, I hope that you enjoy the Cover Story and that you find practitioners, businesses and information that will help you be the best You and the best part of Us that you can be.
I truly thank you for picking up this edition of INSIGHT!
Wishing love, great health, and happiness to you all!
