60 Seconds of Happiness


Have you been annoyed today? How about frustrated? Perhaps peeved? Angry? Stressed? Impatient?

Your reply may be: of course I have ... I had to contend with that idiot at the telephone company ... or deal with the bad drivers during rush hour traffic ... or listen to why my website is down yet again ... or hear excuses about why my shipments haven't arrived which means I'll have irate customers on my hands. Indeed. All of that creates some of the negative emotions I've referred to above.

But what if it didn't? What if you were to create a space of well-being inside of you that you can find refuge in whenever circumstances go topsy-turvy? You might think of it as a bomb shelter you can run to every time you hear the air raid sirens, or, I perfer to think of it as a serene garden  - a peaceful osasis of tranquility - bathed in sunshine, filled with perfume, with breath-takingly beautiful flowers, shrubs, and trees wherever you look.

How do you get such a place inside of you? You become mindful. You remain conscious. You live in the present and you focus on beauty and gratitude. But you still live your life that may contain many of the above type of situations. It's just that once you create this space inside of you, you will be able to move there despite those situations There are methods to do this and this and this are some of the ways that will help you get there. Emerson said for every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness.

Once again it's a choice. And you are the only one who gets to choose for yourself. Choose well.

Praise for The Tao of Spiritual Partnership

“All humans seek the illusive touch of another's Soul, which opens us to the sense of belonging to something bigger than the self. Dr. Kortsch has given us the true "tao" of relationship in this brilliant exploration of emotional tapestry. We will be grateful for this illumination of spiritual partnership for generations to come."
Chris Griscom: Spiritual Leader, Author (among others) of: Ecstasy is a New Frequency

“Eloquent and comprehensive, showing how your primary love relationship may be a sacred vessel that transports you and your partner to a place of mutual healing and expansion.” 

Robert Schwartz: Author of Your Soul’s Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born 


The Power of Your Heart: Loving the Self 


My new book: The Power of Your Heart: Loving the Self, is just out. Click here to download an excerpt. 

From the Introduction: It is your right to live a life of love. It is your right to understand that loving yourself first is not a selfish way of behavior, but one that allows you to live that life of love. However, it's highly probable that you never got the instruction manual explaining exactly how to accomplish this. Possibly your family - and it may have been a loving family - considered loving the self an act of selfishness. Or perhaps the members of your family simply didn't practice loving the self, and of course, what you didn't see - what was not shown to you - while you were growing up, meant that you just didn't learn how to apply it to yourself. The closer you are able to move towards loving yourself, the closer you will be to living a life of love - quite independently of whether you are in a love relationship or not. A life of love can be lived with or without a partnership, because a life of love implies that you know that it all begins with you by loving the self. The more clearly you understand how to love yourself, the more clearly you will see that it is very hard - if not impossible - to love others in ways that are unrelated to fulfilling any of your needs. Loving yourself first is - for so many of us - one of the hardest things we will ever learn how to do. But know this: the benefits affect you in every particle of your being - body, mind, and soul - and are greater than you will ever be able to imagine.


Note: If you are wondering why this blog is now only appearing on alternate days (excluding Sat/Sun), it is because I also post on my other blog on the others days. That other blog is The Tao of Spiritual Partnership, so named for another one of my books. Click here to visit the blog and/or to sign up for the feed.
