I use the Headspace app for my morning meditations. At the end of each meditation, a thought comes up on the screen once the session is complete.
Last Friday it was:
“It’s ironic that, if we could just stop wanting something to make us happy, we might be happier.”
Below are the insights I had from reading that. Enjoy.
Think about the last time you felt happy. I’m not talking excitement, I’m talking that still, centered, feeling that everything is exactly how it’s supposed to be.
Were you DOING anything to MAKE yourself happy, or, did you simply become aware of the happiness inside of you?
Happiness isn’t something we can force or make happen (despite our valiant efforts). It is also always available to us.
Because happiness only exists inside of us. It is a choice, not the result of anything outside of us.
When you “see” or “do” something that “makes you feel happy”, all that’s happening is you’ve chosen that person or thing as a symbol of “happy”. The choice always starts inside of you.
