There is only one way to achieve happiness. That way is to simply be happy.
You are probably thinking right now how do I get to be happy. Things just don’t work like that, it doesn’t take into consideration the times that I am miserable because of problems or mishaps that come up in my everyday life, not to mention the tragedies. At this point I have to stop and meditate. Meditation can be done many different ways, just find the one that works best for your purposes.
Being happy much more of the time than you have been is an incredibly difficult task to accomplish-not in the doing of it once you know how and then in keeping aware of what you have discovered. Yet, I still say that with meditation you can do it. The path that you have chose that led you to your current situation was not a few days or months in the making, but a long and strenuous path that has spanned through many years.
In reality it has taken you as long as you have been alive to become the way you are today. It has also taken you that long to achieve what you have achieved, to possess, and to arrive at your current condition. By taking the time to meditate and think about who you are, and what you have in your life is truly what you want. If you are completely satisfied with the way your life is going, congratulations-do more of what you have been doing and you will get more of what you already have in your life.
But if who you are, what you want, what you have, and your current conditions are less than what you want or perhaps are different from what you want, you have to start meditating about some basic changes you will need to make in your life. Failure to make those changes will find you continuing to seek the things you really would like in your life as the years pass by.
Because some of this that you are reading will seem impossible, ridiculous, or to you maybe even foolish and it may at first offend you, causing you to ridicule what you are reading and maybe even cause you to reject what you have read. I really want to suggest to you that before you may reject how meditation can help you through your life, ask yourself whether or not you want it to be true-then for your benefit please give yourself the chance to see it as true.
In this day and time with all the things we have to deal with in our lives it is very hard to stay on a positive level and be happy all the time, but just taking a few minutes a day just meditating by yourself will help you keep things in perspective where instead of being unhappy about the situation you are in you can find a way to find the happy part of being unhappy.
