Dalai Lama at The Beacon Theatre: The Business of Me

I have been working through some exhaustion issues and have decided to blog less or only when I feel compelled to… well I have been COMPELLED! 
One of my most favoritest books of 2013 has been The Art of Happiness. Beyond a great read- a true life lesson. It combines a lot of research on positive psychology, clinical studies and the teachings of the Dalai Lama. It provides a palatable amalgamation of scientific evidence and the human perspective via spirituality. Putting the big words aside- this book is f*cking awesome!
I had seen the banners at my train stop. The Dalai Lama in NYC… I thought to myself that it must be sold out and so I did not even bother to try purchasing tickets. 
Yesterday, I put in for a day off on October 18th and on my way home, saw the sign again. I quickly googled the website and realized there were tickets still on sale. I ran home and made the purchase. I purchased without knowing what I was getting. Guess what I got? I got tickets to all FIVE teaching sessions of the Dalai Lama at the Beacon Theatre over the course of three days. Orchestra Seats. One of the last few seats left. That day I took off- now I get to spend it with the Dalai Lama :). I didn’t know it but the universe was at work to make perfection happen. 
It was a bit pricey but it’s worth paying for the experience. Not only that, this is most definitely an investment in myself and my learning. You have to invest in yourself to see the dividends pay off down the road. 
I can’t wait! To round it all out, I then found out that I have a Goddess Ball to attend to raise money for the Tibet House- Coincidence or Kismet? 

The purpose of our existence is to seek happiness. […] But isn’t a life based on seeking personal happiness by nature self-centered, even self-indulgent? Not necessarily. In fact, survey after survey has shown that is unhappy people who tend to be most self-focused and often socially withdrawn, brooding, and even antagonistic. Happy people, in contrast, are generally found to be more sociable, flexible, and creative and are able to tolerate life’s daily frustrations.” – The Art of Happiness
