Becoming Powerful Through Becoming Peaceful

What comes to mind when you think of the word power? What does the word power mean to you? Do you feel powerful? In particular, do you feel you possess the the power to be happy? Although our main wish is to be happy all the time, at the moment most of us feel as if we lack the power to achieve an experience of lasting joy, happiness and inner fulfillment. Especially when faced with difficulties, we often feel quite power ‘less’ and succumb to following our well worn internal paths of frustration, anger and discouragement. Through these teachings and meditations, we will discover we have always possessed the power to achieve unbelievable states of happiness. We will discover, that in fact, we are very powerful indeed! All we need is the correct methods that help us tune into our power to be happy, and become deeply familiar with these. Then we will be happy not just for a few minutes but for a whole day and then eventually a whole week and eventually our whole life. At that point we will have the power to benefit not just our self but our friends and loved ones and ultimately, just like a Buddha, all living beings. How powerful that would be!

Everyone welcome.
