What exactly is it that we need to have a happy life? We need a happy mind. So many problems are created by our mind. We don’t realize the role our mind plays in projecting itself onto external situations. If our mind is negative or unhappy it will project an unpleasant world, if it is happy it will project a pleasant world.
Our desires are changing all the time and this adds to our unhappiness and discontentment. We may become unhappy because we are lonely so we surround ourselves with people resulting in us not being able to find the time to be alone, this then makes us stressed and unhappy. We may be unhappy because we can’t find work but once we get a job we feel stressed as we have too much work. We may feel depressed as our dreams aren’t fulfilled or once fulfilled they leave us feeling hollow & empty. We may lack success or become overwhelmed because when we have success it brings more stress than we can bear.
If we want to be happy in all these situations we need to learn to control our mind so it is happy & peaceful whether we are with people or alone, whether we are busy or sitting quietly. Through controlling our mind we can control what we project onto the world and we can start to create the sort of world we want live in.
