My sister-in-law sent me the book "Zen and the Art of Happiness" by Chris Prentiss. The title is the main theme (quote) from the book that explains how to reach happiness in your life. I'm still working on reading the rest of the book, I am about halfway through it. It is definitely an interesting concept to think about.
"Everything that happens to me is the best possible thing that can happen to me".
It goes on to talk about how no situation is good or bad, but how we react to it makes it that way. I am still having a hard time grasping what this all means, if I agree with it and how anyone could possibly reset their mind to actually feel this way. I can agree with everything happens for a reason, but that everything that happens is the best possible thing? How can this be? It is clear to mention it does not mean there is a little bit of good in every situation or good can come from a bad situation.
I guess I better finish the book before I draw any final conclusions.
