This is the title of Max Strom’s new book. I’d like to share his message here because it’s time to examine how we’re living and it’s time to choose happiness.
We live with our mind in a storm and we call it normal, but we know it isn’t. Technology is expanding at such a rate that nearly every aspect of our world has been affected — yet there has been no corresponding expansion of personal happiness. Instead, we find that the wealthiest societies of the world have become anxious, sleep deprived, depressed, and over-medicated.
In his new book. There is No APP for Happiness, Max describes how constant bombardment by entertainment and “everything all the time” is eroding our personal awareness, fueling the dysfunction that leads us to the current “New Normal,” entertained but unhappy.
Max Strom’s book and teachings introduce us to three imperatives to reawaken to a new state of consciousness and the daily experience of a meaningful life. These are the internal human technologies he has shared with tens of thousands of people across the world in his sold out seminars and workshops.
Today’s workshop takeaway with Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa:
Yoga takes you out of your “pity party.” Got it? Good…Do your yoga!
I was eight months into my Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training course, and ready to quit. I loved the practices but the teachings seemed too dogmatic.It was right at this critical moment that I met my mentor and soul sister, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa. What was the game changer? It was when she played a Beatles song right in the middle of our yoga practice. It was so foreign to play anything other than Sanskrit or Ghurmeki mantras that I was blown away. I was surprised but also reconnected to what I found in yoga. It reminded me why I had started my journey in the first place…to bring me back to joy.
I’m honoured to be hosting Gurmukh at Semperviva this weekend. She has kept me on the path of yoga and inspires me to never quit…to never give up, ever!
Come dance, sing, sweat and reconnect to joy, http://www.semperviva.com/events/gurmukh-kaur-khalsa/
