Just Around The Corner

“If you are not happy as you are, where you are, you will never be happy.” Yet everyone is waiting to change one or two things in life to be happy.

You can choose to be happy in the worst of circumstances or be miserable with the best. Happiness is a state of mind.

Vedanta gives a unique formula for happiness. Happiness is the number of desires fulfilled divided by the desires harboured. As you fulfil a desire more pop up. The denominator increases, reducing your happiness.  The first step to eradicating desire is to ask: Is it in your interest? Is the desire in line with your life’s goal? If yes, fulfil the desire. If not, press the delete button.
