“Happiness is not something readymade. It comes from your own actions.”  Dalai Lama XIV The art of happiness is a pursuit many of us are on for a life time.

When are you truly happy?

When you are happy your heart sings, your mind smiles and you have a notion of contentment.

The pursuit is rigorous. You have spent money, taken time and engaged in relationships all in the hopes of owning the golden ring of happiness.

You know one more house, one more car or one more vacation won’t do it. You’ve learned that lesson.

In the time you carve out of your busy schedule you create a quiet space.

You awaken once again the room in your heart called happiness that has been waiting for you to pay attention.

The key: self awareness of the peace you have opened in your heart.

Be still and know.

Happiness is within you.

This is who you are.
