Don’t look for happiness

If you walk with true awareness of every step, without having a goal to get anywhere, happiness will arise naturally.

You don’t need to look for happiness.

When we’re in touch with the wonders of life, we become aware of the many conditions of happiness that are already there, and naturally we feel happy.

The beauty around us brings back to the present moment so we can let go of the planning and worries that preoccupy us.

When you look at the person you love, if he is absorbed in anxiety, you can help him get out.

“Darling, do you see the sun? Do you see the sign that spring is coming?”

This is mindfulness; we become aware of what is happening now and we are in touch with the conditions of happiness that are there inside us and all around us.
