About Infinite Happiness

At Infinite Happiness I write essays about finding happiness from within and sharing it with others. It’s an exploration of the two most important things I’ve ever learned:

  1. Happiness is intrinsic to what we are, and we can recognize this.

  2. We can and should share happiness with others.

The essays here will not only explore why I think these two things are true, but what we might do about it. Happiness is our birthright. But it’s going to take a lot of hard and uncomfortable work to not just recognize this for ourselves but share it with others. This blog and newsletter is part of my attempt to help figure out how we might realize our true potential — infinite happiness for infinite beings.

How I Healed My Trauma
I used to think trauma was a word reserved for extremely horrific events. My parents died suddenly when I was 22, and still I didn't feel like I'd earned the right to say that I was traumatized. But last year, I attended an online retreat with Dr. Gabor Maté…

A summary of the most important thing I’ve ever learned:

Understanding Nonduality
The nondual understanding is knowing and feeling that we are: One (not a self that's separate from others and the world) Awareness (consciousness, experiencing, or knowing) Happiness (we lack nothing) Peace (nothing needs to change) Freedom (we're without limits…
