We all have our phases of happiness, sadness and the in-between states of numbness.
There is nothing like eternal happiness unless one is totally enlightened. There is nothing like eternal sadness unless one is clinically depressed.
We all are mostly in states of ‘emotional indifference’– an auto mode of base line emotions.
Try to remember the times when you were happy. Was there a cause to your happiness? If yes, then there will definitely come a phase of sadness. Because you have pinned your emotions on ‘causes’.
Causes, situations, motives are like chains that bind and rule your emotions. There is nothing more sad than letting yourself be enslaved by outer circumstances.
It is best to tune out from external factors, be it your success, or your child’s achievements or your relationships.
Enjoy everything but as a spectator.
If you are able to apply that skill to your life, believe me, you will be truly HAPPY.
The best kind of happiness is when there is no reason for it.
