Amongst the world’s sowers of wisdom the Buddha lent his understanding to every aspect of the human condition. One of his most popular quotes reminds us that happiness is not a goal, a product of doing or getting something. He suggested that it is a way of being. A powerful state of mind. This is a timeless reminder that enduring happiness cannot be found outside of ourselves. It is a state of being that flows from our hearts. It is not a temporary distraction from the cares of the world. It cannot be found in the fleeting experiences that occupy our senses. The inner sense of peace and calm that sets the world in a different framework is the foundation of health and well-being. Become the happiness you seek and you will find it everywhere. This is another example of the timeless perception that the world reflects our inner state of being. As we experience the world through our emotional filters, the world becomes a mirror in which we see what is in our hearts.
