“The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.”—Thich Nhat Hanh
We spend much of our time seeking happiness. We wait eagerly for festivals and that particular day to enjoy – anniversaries and birthdays.
We plan holidays to make us feel good, but where is happiness?
The problem is that we search for happiness somewhere in the future that doesn’t exist yet and has only a possibility to come.
We forget that happiness is here now in this moment. In little actions of life, we do with awareness—sharing chocolate or ice cream with our best friend, helping someone move one step further, or showing a little kindness to improve the quality of life of someone unknown- the child fighting poverty.
When we share the wealth that we earned, we feel happy, and when we teach the wisdom that we learned, we feel delighted.
I’m sharing something that I love to share with you, and I’m happy.
Every moment of life gives us opportunities to correct our mistakes by taking action that brings us closer to our dreams and goals. When we move towards those dreams and goals, we feel happy.
Happiness is not something you can purchase with money, or someone can gift you. It’s within you. Here at this moment, if you remove the mask of fear, you can feel that.
