Inner wind in a speedy world.

BUDDHA IN THE MUD. Practical everyday insight into Dzogchen Buddhism. It's not about feeling good about yourself; it's about feeling good about your self. Your self is your karma and teacher.

How Do I Know If I’m Happy?

If we are neither unhappy nor indifferent, then we are happy.

The nice feeling of being happy comes about when everything we are doing drops away.
If we are neither unhappy nor indifferent then we are happy – but there may not be a feeling of being happy.

The feeling of being unhappy usually comes from the inner energies rising in the body from just below the navel area. We feel out of place, and to rebalance and relax, these energies are to be taken down to just below the navel by using the subtle breath exercise (see video below).

Try it and see.
Conscious chanting or singing does the same thing.
Being happy is being in tune in body and mind … !

About Ben Naga
