Happiness depends on what you can give, not on what you can get.
– Swami Chinmayananda
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.”
