[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] It is your moral duty to be happy
It is your moral duty to be happy: however you cannot exercise this duty by
clutching unrealistic beliefs, struggling with unworkable assumptions,
juggling painful images, jumping to false conclusions, running with
impulsive decisions or hasty judgements Sufi Hazarat Inayat Khan
Do not outsource your happiness, happiness is your own responsibility. Too
often we place this job on someone else's shoulders. We expect our
happiness to come as a result of a relationship or getting something rather
than as a premise upon which to build one. Walk with your own happiness!
Know what makes you happy and own that, do that, exercise that, choose that!
If we truly wanted to be happy, we would not be so eager to sacrifice
happiness for nonsense, jealousy, possessiveness, anger, fear or any other
function of the ego.
When you find yourself in a situation where you realize that you are
tolerating "nonsense", what do you do? We cannot realize true happiness
when we entertain nonsense in our hearts and in our minds.
This is a recipe for you to keep searching, tolerating, ignoring things in
the quest for the very thing you are searching for. Happiness is really a
choice, you must make the choice to be happy, and walk with it everywhere
I am not saying you will be or ought to be walking around with a big grin
on your face singling kumbaya everyday, but what will happen when you
choose to not outsource your happiness is that you will know that waiting
on other people, external circumstances, certain specific situations cannot
be your only source of happiness as these things change, and of course you
have absolutely no control over them, you have no control over it. You take
responsibility for your own life!
