When we let go of trying to extract our happiness from other people, places or situations, our lives take on a magical quality. We have allowed ourselves to remember that we do not need anything to experience happiness for the simple reason that we are happiness itself; and we may get in touch with this boundless essence of joy, beauty, and well-being at any time we choose. We simply withdraw our attention from the outer and focus upon that sweet spot within—that place of pure excellence, pure genius, pure fulfillment, pure whatever we need! When we live our lives from that place, we have discovered the essence of true happiness. True happiness is happiness for the sake of happiness itself. True happiness is an essential quality of our Deepest Authentic Self. Now here’s the paradox; as we make happiness itself our priority, all those things we thought we had to chase after to be happy, suddenly come chasing after us! This is because we have sought first the Kingdom of God within, and now all else is being added unto us.
