“Real happiness lies in that which never comes or goes, but simply is.”
How happy do we get when we achieve a new accomplishment: graduating from school, buying a new house, getting a new job.
But this happiness is not real happiness. It’s a temporary high and it always goes away. Usually when it dies down, we seek the next high. If we can stop long enough to really take a good look at our life, we’ll really these things don’t give us long-term, deep seated happiness.
While living our lives, we should seek to create everlasting happiness. The kind that penetrates us on the soul level and stays with us for the rest of our lives.
We can’t rely on people, things, and events to make us happy. We can never guarantee any of these things will always be in our lives. Things change. Situations change. And attaching happiness to external factors is what makes us so resistance to change. However, change can be one of the best mechanisms for happiness and transformation. We can use change to our benefit. Change allows us to live many lifetimes and experiences in one.
Real happiness should be cultivated within. Once we have achieved inner happiness, nothing in the external world can take that happiness from us.
