Happiness Is the Key to Life

Happiness and joy are an important form of abundance! These vibrations in our hearts, mind, and cells help us magnetize what we want. It’s part of my Padmini Vidya Mini Course, which includes the following quotation from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: “Happiness radiates like a fragrance from a flower and draws all good things toward you.” Bringing more joy and happiness into your life is essential. It juices you up so everything can just flow. Happiness is the key to life. When setting your goals, be sure to add having joy and being happy!  Through regular meditation, we can get established in that bliss consciousness so that no matter what happens, it doesn't throw us.
