You Can Always Find Happiness Right Where You Are

The truth is, you can always find happiness right now, alone, and right where you are. This is the secret of all the great spiritual and wisdom traditions. This is what Jesus, Buddha, and Shiva tried to teach their followers in their own way. That the Kingdom of Heaven, Nirvana, Shiva, is inside us.

When we discover the truth of our true nature, there is a peace and joy that pervades the normal ups and downs of life. We begin to see how challenges make us stronger, how disappointment only heightens the sweetness of triumph, how having to wait for what we want makes getting it that much better. We also see how instant gratification, hedonism, indulging in pleasing the senses does not lead to a lasting sense of happiness.
