Your Answer To Happiness

“Do not look for happiness outside yourself. The awakened seek happiness inside.”
Peter Deunov

Sadly, too many people are misguided about what will make them happy. Society tends to keep us wanting for more. We are supposed to want bigger houses, nicer cars, extravagant vacations and lots of fun toys. This is supposed to make us happy.

This keeps most people on the ‘hamster wheel’ of life, running faster and faster, chasing the happiness carrot and never really getting any closer….In reality nothing outside of us will give us long term happiness.

If a part of your life is not going the way you would like, think about how you are in the situation. What beliefs is your ‘ego’ trying to reinforce? What changes do you need to make?

I am not talking about putting on a ‘happy’ face and just dealing with a bad situation. I am referring to changing how you see, think and feel about the situation.

What if you do not really know what you want to do with your life. What is worst thing that could happen if you started experimenting? If you choose something that you end up not liking, with that experience, you can always make a new choice and head in a different direction. Nothing has to be forever unless you decide it to be.

Be smart about happiness and follow paths that will get you there rather than those paths that other people think will get you there. And remember, there are many answers for what happiness is.

What is your answer to happiness?

“Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.”
Dalai Lama
