Cultivate unconditional happiness.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out in your life?

We all want to be happy. We also often feel our happiness is dependent on circumstances. If certain desired things occur, then we believe we can be happy.

The problem with this approach is that there’s always something further we desire. Happiness becomes an ever moving target; something is always perceived to be lacking in the moment. How can we find a way to be happier right now?

Today’s message advises me to uncouple my happiness from conditions. When there are no qualifications on my happiness, I can be happy anytime I choose to be. In this way, my happiness is not dependent on external conditions but rather is a personal choice.

In any given moment something, however small, is going right. Whether it’s pleasant weather, comfortable clothes, satisfying food or drink, or a loved companion, there is always something potentially enjoyable occurring. I choose to generate my happiness right now by appreciating all the small blessings.

How about you? How to do cultivate happiness in the moment?
