Be Happy!   It's Your Birthright

Hey! What a lovely day it is! Rain is falling and blessing the earth, we get soaking wet and life is beautiful.

We've finally cracked it, early this morning. Life is one great game, a play (Leela). The point is to combine the calmness and reason of the Buddha with joy of living of Zorba the Greek. A form of spiritual hedonism!

Compassion says: "I want you not to suffer."
Love says: "I want you to be happy."

There is nothing to achieve other than to bring happiness into your world and pour it over others near you. If everything we do follows this maxime, then amazing things will happen. The goose is out of the bottle. It was never in there in the first place.

Happiness Definitions

Happiness is not merely a life lived by accumulating moments of pleasure. On the contrary, happiness is a long lasting enduring enjoyment of life, it is being in love with living.

Happiness is not in having or being? It is in the doing. Lillian Watson

Happiness is living in a state of freely choosing to create and exchange one's rational values with others. John Roberts

But what is happiness except the simple harmony between a man and the life he leads. Albert Camus

Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory. Albert Schweitzer

How to be Happy

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. Buddha

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. Thich Nhat Hanh

Whoever is happy will make others happy, too. Mark Twain

Realise that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself. Og Mandino

Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half sorrow. Swedish proverb

To live happy, live hidden. French proverb
