Zen and the Art of Happiness
“Man suffers only because he takes seriously what the gods made for fun.”
― Alan W. Watts
Zen and ancient philosophy that has stood the test of time. Its lasted so long because it works! Zen is the art of happiness, the art of being mindful in your life, and experiencing every day ecstasy.
In this blog post were going to focus on one thing, and thats is every thing that happens to me is the best possible thing that can happen to me. This saying I have brought up before, and I will keep bringing it up because it is such a helpful philosophy. This philosophy was created by Chris Prentiss, the author of the book Zen and the Art of Happiness.
I want you guys to say this over and over to yourself, especially when you face adversity.
When I was a freshman in collage, I was studying for my final exam, and the exam was a day away, long story short, I pulled and all nighter, and went to the exam the next day to find out that the test was actually the day I pulled the all nighter! I waited outside the class, and began to get down on my self. Luckily this had been the time where I had just read Zen and the Art of Happiness. I had a choice in that moment, I could have let the negative emotions consume me and start to spiral. Who knows if I did that the day would have probably ended way worse, because I would have been attracting all the negative stuff. Luckily I chose to believe that every thing that happens to me is the best possible thing that can happen to me. I felt way better, and decided to contact my teacher via email. He got back to me that day and said there was no need to make up the test. Since I showed up to all the classes, he gave me an A on the test and I didn’t even have to take it! This principle, works, and I hope you a adopt into your life.
Zen goes much deeper than this one principle, and is so deep I wont be able to fit it in this one blog post. Stay tuned for future blog posts, and we will explore new principles about Zen, and how to achieve a state of Zen in your life!
