I’ve sent a link to so many folk I decided that if I find it *that* helpful I should really repost it too. so … 🙂

BUDDHA IN THE MUD. There are two truths: the real and the seemingly real. Their connection is the negative emotions. On the path of the seemingly real, the emotions imprison us. On the path of the real, the emotions liberate us. There is a secret life to the emotions.

Happiness Is Realising The Problem

We are never unhappy for no reason.
Everything has a cause.

We may be unhappy because we wanted something and didn’t get it.
We may be unhappy because we didn’t want something but got it.
We may be unhappy because we never realised
that we’ve been happy all along.

The problem is all in the mind and, as such,
it never truly existed.

Whatever life presents is our path.
Karma is an excellent teacher.

Whatever occurs,
know that pure awareness is always present.
That is truly wonderful, because it is all we need to know.

When we realise this,
we will be happy with whatever arises.
In this way, we undo the karmic effect.
Everything simplifies.

We are pure awareness.
If this isn’t good enough,
then we will remain unhappy.

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  5. I always found it a bit sad when I came across people that were just trying to be happy, or pursue happiness. Always seems to me that happiness is best not pursued as an end, but is nothing more than a feedback mechanism that you are on the right path more or less.
