Happiness from flaming lips










"I believe this is something all of us can do: Try to be happy within the context of the life we are actually living. Happiness is not a situation to be longed for or a convergence of lucky happenstance. Through the power of our own minds, we can help ourselves. This I believe."


Check out this endearing account about Creating our own happiness and the possibility of it being within reach of ordinary people when one brings the right understanding and focus. It's courtesy of Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips and NPR's terrific I believe series

Happiness is at the end of our nostrils. All one need do is breath it in.
Meditate, watch your breath, clear your mind and love yourself.
Have no desire, no attachments.

Is that you in the picture, Guy? If so you’ve changed a bit. You look cool. You would fit right in at a Renaissance Faire.

Happiness is the unmistakable smell of a newborn (the good one).
