One of my dear friends asked me the other day the secret of my happiness.
It got me thinking. I can compare it to me chasing my own shadow. The more I try to catch it, the farther it runs away.
Happiness to me seems similar. I recall waiting for something extraordinary to take place in my life at a subconscious level. It’s only recently that I’ve started enjoying every moment as it unfolds deliberately. The joy, the gladness, the triumph, the sorrow, the pain, the anguish. To marinate with all these emotions with no attachment.
I’ve given myself the permission to simply be the observer rather than wanting to reach a desired state.
It seems to me that my state of mind is a happy one only after I’ve let go of the strong urge to be happy. Quite paradoxical!
