The Secret of Happiness
What is the secret of Happiness? There is no definite answer, sometimes we search throughout our lives to try to pin this sensation down, it is like pinning a butterfly down, or catching a fly. No one thing or person can make happiness appear. It is a collection of minute happenings, the birth of a child, a marriage to someone you love, seeing your child happy and content with their life, seeing something awesome in nature, all these fascinations bring an element of that what we call happiness.
But, true happiness lies within us, it doesn’t need anything at all. It is loving the person you are, never doubting you are a marvel and a wonderful being. Accepting whatever happens you are loved for who you are.
During the trials and tribulations of my life I have tried to learn acceptance and letting go, this has been very hard. I have been tested so much along the pathway that there have been times when I just wanted to give up and put the covers over my head and not take part in life. I am a very optimistic person so when these times come I then must pull on my beliefs and the knowledge that I will be given help if I just ask.
So, have faith, never give in, always love yourself then others will love you for who are.
There is a quote by Martin Buber:
To begin with oneself, but not to end with oneself:
To start from oneself, but not to aim at oneself:
To Comprehend oneself, but not to be preoccupied with oneself
DON’T KEEP LOOKING FOR HAPPINESS – IT IS INSIDE YOURSELF!
Love and light
