why are so many of us unhappy? why are we dissatisfied in our relationships, our jobs, our lives? what do we feel we are lacking? do we believe it’s the other person that’s causing our own unhappiness? when i look around, i see such personal misery. and what is it in institutionalized religion that causes people to become numb to another’s pain and suffering, blind to their loved ones agony? if only he or she would find Jesus, or Islam, or Mormonism or something, we say, then he would find peace. but it isn’t always so. is a belief in something larger than ourselves really the very cure for our ails?
happiness isn’t something you search for outside yourself. it’s already a part of you. in fact, it is you.
