If You Plant Seeds of Happiness, Flowers of Happiness Will Bloom
How Small Things Affect Your Tomorrows!

We say that we want to be happy. If that�s what we really want, we should start planting seeds of happiness. The kind of flower you get depends on the seed you have planted: this is a law of nature. In the same way, if you plant the seeds of happiness, the flowers of happiness will bloom. Seeds of happiness, seeds of unhappiness� which are you mostly planting? In addition to my work of giving seminars throughout the country as a lecturer on Buddhism, I continue to give advice through my email newsletter and my blog. Buddhism teaches us the law of cause and effect that enables us to become �a happier me.� All I am doing is applying that clear law to the troubles that various people have, explaining things in a way that will be easy for them to understand. So, how can we make sure the flowers of happiness bloom for us? I�d like to help by discussing the troubles of people whom I�ve encountered over these past few years. Kazushi Okamoto October, 2013
