Happiness depends on what you can give, not on what you can get.

Happiness is your real nature

All of us are seeking lasting happiness – through our relationships, through our work and through our creative activities and accomplishments. The search for happiness is natural. So, why is it so hard to find happiness that lasts?

The wisdom of the scriptures tells us that we are seeking in the wrong place. Lasting happiness is not to be found in things that don’t last. The source of lasting happiness is always with us as our eternal consciousness Self.

“More important than what is behind you and what is ahead of you, is what is in you, Seek it. Centred in it, act and live.”

 Swami Chinmayananda

Finding our Selves

 The road home to lasting happiness and fulfillment is a well-charted path. Preparation is simple. Bring balance into your life. Make time for your physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Practice some yoga, spend time in introspection, keep the company of fellow seekers. Meditate.
