If I had advice to give anyone, it would be to be in a particular state of mind, and know what you want from life, because not only will your whole outlook change, but so too will how you see yourself.
I’m not sure how many of us get that close to knowing ourselves. The simple, uncomplicated life, the spiritual life, doesn’t seem to exist in this fast-paced world we live in. We forget what matters and who is important.
We must find happiness in the simple things, in our thoughts and in ourselves. Happiness depends on whom we’re asking, a simple question without a straightforward answer. If we were to put hand on heart and ask ourselves if we were happy, we would stumble to find the perfect answer.
We think we’re happy, we convince ourselves we are, but unless we deal with our issues and with our baggage, we can never be happy in the true sense.
As we go about our lives, we tend to look to find happiness in our careers and with our families, but inwardly those things cannot make us happy, unless we make ourselves happy.
The best way to find happiness is to look from the inside out. It’s not so much finding silence as paying attention to what is already there, through shifting our attention to the part of us that is constantly aware, the little voice inside of us that speaks.
The inner voice that is attached to an eternal presence is constantly with us, but we must listen. When we learn to anchor ourselves and channel our thoughts, we move with that rhythm and become aware of that inner stillness.
Only then will we connect with an eternal presence that continues to support and sustain us in our conscious thinking.
