Discussion: The Introduction [Rod Stryker’s Four Desires (4D) Virtual Book Club]

Discussion: The Introduction
What inspires you in The Four Desires introduction?

Happiness. The idea that everyone is seeking happiness inspires me. I have been waiting a long time for this book to come out. On it’s release date I turned on my ipad and saw The Four Desires waiting in my bookshelf. It made my day to read the first sentence “Happiness.” Having taken the Yoga of Fulfillment training and knowing what this book would ask of me, reading that first line made me pause, take a breath, and be grateful for my teacher. I stared at the word and remembered how thrilling and daunting it was to go through all the different exercises. “Happiness” stared back at me; a reminder that this path of deep and thorough soul exploration has a happy ending.

The common denominator, seldom remembered, is that “there is no more basic or universal drive than the desire to be happy.” There are a lot of things that will make me feel happy, but is that happiness long lasting and true to my soul? The introduction outlines what is to be expected of the book. It wisely reminds us that we need to apply what has been learned: “success is less the result of what you know than the cumulative effect of what you do.”

Now that we have a few things in common (seeking happiness, reading The Four Desires, and applying these teachings), lets get this virtual book club going!
