Being alive, truly alive does make for extraordinary living.
As this days ends, I will be entering a new year of my life. A new leaf will unfold. A new transformation is waiting to happen.
In the past 33 years, life has presented me with umpteen experiences, magnanimous gifts and many joyful tears. Today, I celebrate my existence on this beautiful Earth and thank God for making me and giving me a chance to live this life. In reflecting back, I feel like I have never been more alive than I am today. Never felt more rooted than I do right now. Today, with immense happiness, I can say-“been there, done that, and still happy!”
Its not that life hasn’t thrown many many lemons my way. But, I have learned and discovered along the way, how to make sweet, soul stirring, happy lemonade out of them. That’s where spirituality came in for me. To me personally, living a spiritual life has led to a state of complete happiness. irrespective of the external factors. It has been the essence and reason of my inner growth.
As a gift to all of you on this day and to the Universe at large, I present the 33 spiritual laws I live by and attest for happiness.
You will also be glad to know, that these spiritual laws are the draft by which I am currently writing a book: 33 Spiritual Laws of Happiness. It will be complete, Inshallah beginning of 2011. The plan is to self publish it as an e-book and make it available for purchase here on the blog itself, but if there are any publishers out there who would like to turn it into paperback, it would be wonderful too. I have left that upto God and his Universe to decide and lead the way. That plan will unfold itself when the time is right.
So without further ado-
My 33 Spiritual Laws of Happiness:

These personal spiritual laws have helped me immensely over the past years and living by them is not only easy, but also very very enriching to the very core of your existence.
Since this is just a rough draft, it only covers the main titles in the book itself. The book will cover each Law in detail, with personal examples, insight , affirmations and practical simple ways of incorporating each in your life to truly BE happy.
I intend this book to be part of each and every soul’s/readers spiritual healing.
Just sitting to write the book, makes me feel like Its being done automatically. It feels effortless…and the words, the thoughts are just flowing. I just have a feeling, that this book is meant to be written and read. The sense of peace and calm that envelops me in the process of writing this is just Wow!
I’m so excited and happy to share this with you today of all days…cause I turn 33 today! And I love it! Bring on the life…I’m ready. I’m open…with love and gratitude.
I don’t really believe in material gifts on birthdays, so I request you all to say a small prayer for me and send me lots of good positive thoughts. I just know, they will reach me and help me immensely. Just know, that I truly appreciate it.
Lets all spread the divinity within and celebrate everyday!
With Immense love & gratitude,
