Permit me to introduce you, Beautiful People, to an 11th – 12th century Persian mathematician, astronomer, and poet Omar Khayyam, whose idea of happiness is almost verbatim the title of Zelig Pliskin’s book Life Is Now (today’s word prompt is PERMIT https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/permit/).
Before I share with you the video of our January 30th Lasting Joy club meeting, I want to apologize for the blurriness, although I have told the techy young man who was in charge of the camera that at my age, blurry is good! Don’t take me seriously, Beautiful People, Life Is Now, I have no age, and the energy of interaction among club members is simply awesome! This is the first time these people met each other!
It does help that we were also making sushi, and that was no coincidence! Happiness is a choice, and so is sushi making: you choose the kind of roll you want to make, you choose your fillings, you choose to gobble it up right away or to take it home, and ultimately, you choose to participate in this crazy, wacky, and oh! so warm and loving event!
This is the first part, and I am not sure I will upload the second because the important part, sharing five things we are grateful for and recapping what each person has learned, did not record – oh well! The sharing was nothing short of amazing, and they all learned TO SMILE AND TO SAY KIND THINGS TO OTHERS!
This is the handout you heard mentioned in the video. It comes from Zelig Pliskin’s Gateway of Happiness, and he encourages us to copy, share, and spread it.
Here is your homework, Beautiful People: try to concentrate on the first exercise. You can describe that experience in comments, to share with others. You can also e-mail me privately by using Contact page. Finally, you can think about it until the next Lasting Joy club meeting, ring in remotely, and share with us then. You are not obligated to speak ever, so don’t worry! If you’d rather listen and learn to make some delicious food, that’s perfectly fine!
P.S. If you are interested in my book which I have introduced that evening, it is only one click away at amazon.com/author/koolkosherkitchen.
Make your choice: choose to be happy today!
