The happiness of one’s own heart alone cannot satisfy the soul; One must try to include, as necessary to one’s own happiness, the happiness of others. ~ Paramahansa Yogananda

Often in our journey and search for happiness and a meaningful life, we get lost in what will make US happy, and forget about making OTHERS happy. What we don’t realize is, most often, making others happy IS what makes US happy!

Namaste

my friends.

About Tamara Hoerner (1252 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  1. In a similar vein:
    “Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own… Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy.” – Robert A. Heinlein
