“Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give – pleasure, possessions, power – but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy.” ~ Dada Vaswani
The older I get and the more familiar I become with who I really am underneath it all, the more I realize how important it is to be at peace with yourself and the world around you; how important it is to do the things that nurture your mind, revitalize your body and rejuvenate your Soul.
I often look around me at how most people live their lives and I have to say that it saddens me. It saddens me because there are people who live as if they aren’t human BEings, but rather human DOings. They live their lives as if they are machines. Machines that need to do more, more, more… and run faster, and faster, and faster.
