How happy are you right now?

Really think about it. How happy are you? Do you really want to be happy? Do you deserve to be happy? Are you doing everything in your power to be happy? Or do you think happiness is something only for the wealthy, the good-looking or the spiritual?

Through my privileged role as a coach supporting clients attain their goals and dreams, I see a common theme in what they all desire – quite simply, to be happy, whatever happiness means to them.

In many ways, most of our overall desires revolve around "being happy” and getting satisfied. But what is happiness, how do we achieve it and can it last?

I believe the key to remember is that everything material is impermanent. Just like beauty fades, and youth slips away, so does everything material. So our happiness cannot depend on the material. If we keep buying stuff and fill our lives up with stuff, eventually we will end up with stuff all!

For most of us, our most precious commodity is our time – once spent we cannot get it back. We like doing, evolving, learning, interacting, growing and moving. So when do we get time to relax, meditate and enjoy simply being in the moment? Can we learn to be content and truly happy with ourselves right here and now?

Author Urayoan Paz believes we can and has created a method called Gratitude-Bliss Meditation (GBM) to teach people how to do so. Based on ancient philosophies and basic common sense, GBM is designed to bring peace of mind. To access a copy of Urayon’s e-book on Gratitude-Bliss Meditation visit
