Issues might appear to make you cheerful, like entering into a brand new relationship or getting no matter it’s you assume will make you cheerful, however these items cannot make you cheerful. They’ve really by no means made anybody completely satisfied. Nothing could make you cheerful as a result of happiness would not come from the skin, it is inside you. So exterior issues can solely set off the happiness that is already in you however they cannot trigger you to be really completely satisfied. Happiness is definitely your true nature, it is simply that we have been conditioned to dwell up to now and the longer term, and to deal with the current second as a method to an finish (which is loopy as a result of life is all the time now). Most of us are all the time making an attempt to get some other place, as an alternative of absolutely being the place we’re. Whereas consuming breakfast we take into consideration lunch, whereas consuming lunch we take into consideration dinner and so forth. All that is executed by the thoughts simply to keep away from the current second as a result of within the current there is no such thing as a thoughts, which implies loss of life for the thoughts and loss of life is it is biggest worry. In reality, all the thoughts’s fears are actually simply the worry of loss of life (ego-death).
The truth that nothing could make you cheerful is definitely excellent news although as a result of it implies that you do not have to rely on individuals, locations and issues to make you cheerful. Happiness is who you really are, and you’ll solely be your true self within the current second.
I will share with you some a quote from a track I wrote known as ‘All the things Is High quality’:
I discovered peace in myself, now every thing is ok
It may rain, it may storm and every thing’s fantastic.
The above strains are speaking about peace (or happiness) that is not depending on exterior issues. It is all the time there typically within the background and typically within the foreground however it’s all the time current. That is actual peace.
