“The meaning of life is contained in every single expression of life. It is present in the infinity of forms and phenomena that exist in all of creation.” ~ Michael Jackson.
Happiness is not something esoteric and mysterious, but happiness is the very experience of the moment by allowing your full attention to be expressed in that particular situation.
All things carry expression and is your mind the one that finds either misery or happiness there; therefore, is not the situation itself, but your mind and the choice it makes.
For example, your house gets ruined by a flood, you lost many precious things you had. Now, you cannot do anything about it, what you lost you lost; but, however, your mind is the one who chooses to relive the past and cry over what you lost, or your mind can choose to look into the good things in the present–perhaps that you and your family are alive, that you have friends who support you, that you can be patient and strong and work towards a better life, etc.
By acknowledging the present moment, whether pleasant or unpleasant, you free your mind from suffering, from thinking of the past and/or future; therefore, you don’t live in the illusion of a past memory or in the vision of a future, but you embrace the present and live in the reality which is eternal.
Your mind is everything, everything you think and feel is due to your mind; so, if you control your mind and allow it to live in what’s happening around you, in the present, then you can avoid the painful lingering of thoughts which do not help you move forward but which only serve the purpose of crippling you emotionally.
Control your reactions by knowing yourself, then your mind will shift to the present things which can help you experience happy moments. Constant happiness.
