How can you be happy? Make more money? Marry your dream lover? Become the president of a multi-national company? Or simpy being healthy? If your happiness depends on any external conditions, you cannot be really happy at all. It is because extenal factors are ever-changing which you have no full control of. You are not happy when you have not got it, yet you are afraid of losing it the moment you got it. Your so-called happiness can only be fear-based and fleeting.
Real happiness derives from a state of internal balance, which is noticeable when you are in the moment of now, a point where you know you don’t need to depend on anything external for real happiness, which is a state of constant joy from within.
