Future and past are nothing more then thoughts in the head. They are only illusions.
The problem is that we believe that they in fact real and we give away our power to those thoughts.
There is no such thing as “happiness in the future” since there is no future.
Happiness can only exist in the NOW! Period.
You may be saying that if this and that happens I will be happy. But the sad truth is that things like accomplishments, a better job, more money, a better car, a slimmer body can make you happy for only fleeting moments, but they can’t give you everlasting fulfillment. Yet many of us ( almost all humans) believe that their happiness is in one of those “destinations”.
If you are unhappy now then a better car, more money or a slimmer body will make you an unhappy you with a better car, a wealthier unhappy you or a slimmer unhappy you.
Happiness is a mindset and it has nothing to do with the outer circumstances. Happiness is a choice, and you can choose to be happy NOW, regardless of what’s going on in your life.
You don’t need to be anything to be happy. The happy mindset is and inside job.
And the whole paradox is that…
Remember your outer world is an “outpicturing” of what’s going on inside of you.
As within so without
Choose to be happy now by giving gratitude for what you have.
I’m talking about the most basic things like having eyes to read this or being able to breathe without pain, or having access to drinking water or internet. These things may seem pretty basic but I can assure you they are NOT for the average human on this planet.
If you have food in your fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of the world.
