Could you please explain the three components further? I feel that this key to happiness is some very important foundational information.
- Passion. Make a short list of a few things that really move you, and passionately enjoy them when they cross your path. I am passionate about thunderstorms, beautiful horses running wild, spring wildflowers and all things elegant (both of the manmade variety and in the natural world — towering mountains and ocean waves and desert sunsets). Passionately enjoy the world and it precious, innocent creatures. (We have been exploring the Poetic Perspective during past classes — this is the Poetic Perspective in action.)
- Deep, contented peace can come from a self-supported and nurtured life. Mine comes from the deep silence of my own company; the full moon sailing across the sea of stars; a crackling fire and a comfy blanket on a rainy day. Another impetus for inner peace comes from the eternal perspective — knowing that life goes on forever in never-ending cycles and that the obstacles of today will not matter tomorrow.)
- The mysteries of the amazing variety of life forms on this planet are constantly revealing their secrets to those who wish to understand. Study the miracles of life unfolding around you — living is such a grand adventure.
