What is happiness?May 15, 2019 -- Posted by :
Hello everyday, ordinary, unassuming guru seeking friends,
….How’s this for an ordinary guru tip Mr. White: “You’ve got it made when you stop thinking there’s one more thing you have to do to have it made.” It takes a minute to catch the subtle meaning of that. My father would give me that advice when I would get all worked up over something, and insist I had one more thing I had to do before I could relax. Jason Scott……….
….Yes, that is a great Zen-like statement, Jason. It makes a lot of sense if we take the time to catch the wisdom it offers. Thank you. Your dad was a great everyday Guru for you………..
Hi Mr. White
Everyone talks about wanting to be happy. What do I have to get or what do I have to do to be happy. What’s the secret? Any ideas?
Thank you very much for your thoughts on this, Jace
When it comes to being happy, it’s important to understand that it’s not a feeling of jubilation, but rather, it’s the absolute lack of any painful emotion – no sadness, no resentment, no anger, no fear. When there is a total lack of all negative emotions, you are left with HAPPINESS! And so it is that happiness is not the opposite of unhappy, it is what naturally remains when all the negative emotions that make you unhappy are missing.
Ponder that for a while Jace, it is quite amazing when you experience that realization.
Blessings & happiness to you Jace, Rob
