This planet has lost its aspirational vision amidst greed and selfishness, a fall predicted by Paramhansa Yogananda to lead us into a new higher age.
Yogananda’s solution: “a community exemplifying world brotherhood is empowered to send inspiring vibrations far beyond its locale.” ~Autobiography of a Yogi, 1stEdition, last page
Finding Happiness Movie is the story of the inward happiness to be found by living these changes in communities around the world.
“We’re living in an age now where it can go in two directions. Too much of it’s been going toward negativity, selfishness greed, but the other side is aspiration toward higher things. I think what everyone wants is happiness. If you can provide the world with examples of where people live in happiness, not of what I can get, but of what I can give, I am convinced that in such small communities, intentional communities, that that will change the face of the world.” ~Swami Kriyananda, from this movie

Spiritual leaders of all paths tell us we must start with changing ourselves through deep prayer and/or meditation. Then we can form a community, even a virtual one, with like-minded souls. This uplifting vibration will affect others and little by little uplift the consciousness of the planet.
“If you do not choose to be happy, no one can make you happy. And if you choose to be happy, no one can make you unhappy.”
“Don’t be discouraged by your incapacity to dispel darkness from the world. Light your candle and step forward.”
“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change.”
“When we have inner peace, we can be at peace with those around us. When our community is in a state of peace, it can share that peace with neighboring communities. … But no plan will work unless we meditate.”
