Okay, okay, so I'm reviewing my husband's CD/MP3. So chase me out of town with torches and pitchforks. It might not be kosher for an editor to sing the praises of her husband's talents, but I'm breaking the rules. Allen's music is so special, so magical, and so transformative, I'm shouting it from the mountain tops. It's not just my opinion. Everyone who has listened to him sing or his transformational, healing CDs are wowed. That's one of the reasons I married him. He is amazing and he doesn't have a clue about it.

ONE-MINUTE MINDFULNESS—50 Simple Ways to Find Peace, Clarity, and New Possibilities in a Stressed-Out World
Each human being on planet Earth is – consciously or unconsciously – searching for happiness with unlimited persistence and greed. Happiness appears as a mirage; we try countless ways in order to find it in the external world, with perseverance and determination; nevertheless, each time, the desired happiness finally results in disappointing delusion.
Other, more subjective individuals turn to their inner world; in this case as well, their thirst for happiness is satisfied by sheer deceitful imagination. In each of our attempts to search for it, we start from what we know or imagine. Such happiness is always motivated by an object we anticipate or desire.
True happiness ensues indirectly. It always appears in a state of non-search. Practically, we do not know what happiness is, but, when the mind is completely silent, in a state of total passiveness, our whole being experiences harmony. In this state, as complete beings, integrated into Life, we are overwhelmed with an immense Joy and Happiness without cause.
