The reason why there is so little happiness in the world is dependency. And this is the irony. Because happiness is not dependent on ‘anything’ or ‘anyone’ or found ‘anywhere’. We keep delaying our happiness until things are just right in our life. We think we will be happy in the future and then wonder why we are not happy now.
Happiness is only possible when we are able to accept everyone as they are, at every moment, in every situation. That means an end to judging or resisting others, an end to complaining and blaming, an end to criticising and controlling, and an end to competing with anyone.
It is only when we choose thoughts and feelings that are aligned with our true state of purity, peace and love that we can shift – from asking to sharing; from holding on to letting go; from expectations to acceptance; from the past and the future to being in the now. We can create a life of joy, contentment and bliss, because we have the choice and the power. Happiness is a decision.
