Doors To Happiness

on November 14, 2012

“There are many doors to happiness. If you open all of them, then happiness has many ways to come to you.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

In “Fidelity: How to Create a Loving Relationship That Lasts”, Thich Nhat Hanh describes that we have many opportunities to happiness. Happiness can come to us if we let it in.

We need to let ourselves be open. We need to release any attachments, any fears, and any desires that may make us suffer, and we need to be mindful of the good things that are in our lives. “Mindfulness helps us recognize the many conditions of happiness that are (already) inside us and around us”.

Take a look around today. What do you feel or see today in your life that you are glad to have? Whether it’s as simple as seeing the rising of the sun, feeling the breath on your hand, or even eating a fresh banana, let us liberate ourselves from any negative feelings and embrace the joy that’s around us. Open your eyes and hearts, and let the happiness flow to you!
