As Buddha puts it, “What you think, you become.“
Life cannot be neglected, whatever happens around you is something which at some level has a reason and a hidden lesson–from the smallest cut while shaving to the loss of a dear person. Everything is meant to awake you, to help you grow and understand something. To the wise men among us, details tell us the next step to take and what is happening; however, as human beings we have been also endowed with the power to choose which direction to go next, which thought to entertain, which feeling to create and follow–i.e.,anger, joy, sadness, passion, etc. etc..
Even though life may throw at us obstacles and challenges, and ignorant people that may upset us or try to hurt us, What we Think, We Become; so, if we think, whatever we think, we should take responsibility for what we have become and chosen to think and feel in any given situation, no matter what happens around us.
In today’s world, people search for rich interaction with others and expect to find good moments and happiness there, but happiness, true happiness, is not found in anybody you interact with or in anything you do. Happiness is a natural state of consciousness, there is no reason for it, it just is, like the essence of love–i.e., it flows eternally, it is peace and has no special qualities, it is refreshing and wise in all matters of understanding.
Happiness or bliss is something you embrace within yourself and take with you wherever you go; therefore, if you have a good moment with friends or if you do not, if you have a good moment at work or if you do not, does not matter who did what to get you upset, is always about you. You choose to embrace happiness or not, you choose to let people and events affect you or not.
Your world is within, not without; so you must take responsibility for how you feel and not blame police, friends, family, a government, and so on and so forth.
Make sure you understand that the world and the interaction you have with people is a reflection of your mental state. If you find something annoying or depressing, it is your own fault and not the outside world, you chose to feel like that.
It is difficult to control your thoughts of depression and anger towards the stupid society we live in, I know this; but, however, it is a must to attend to yourself and comprehend that you are always in control of your mood, either of your misery or happiness.
And to embrace happiness, specially when your life does not go the way you want it to go, do not deviate your thoughts, do not allow your attention to go towards what is going wrong in your life and stay in misery there, playing the victim game; but to embrace and choose happiness above all else focus on your inner self, take care of it, stop negative self-talk and all negative thought from poisoning you, become a leader and a master of yourself and of how you feel.
