Don’t seek happiness…


Awakening to Your Life's Purpose

  “A man should look for what is, and not what he thinks should  be.”  ~Albert Einstein

I quoted Albert Einstein, because Mr Tolle uses his quotes many times throughout this book. I felt the one above to resonate with me as I write this.   As I finished making my New Moon wishes this evening.. it turned into night.. I’ve been reading this orange book most of the day, and it is really making me think less, and just be!  Funny I say this, however,  if you haven’t read the book you must to really understand what I just said.  Maybe you do because you are already mindfull and just “are” 🙂

I didn’t come here to summerize Mr. Tolle’s book, although I may refer to it again this week.  I came here to write a passage which really caught my attention and I wanted too see what it brings up in YOU.

“Don’t seek happiness. If you seek it, you won’t find it, because seeking is the antithesis of happiness. Happiness is ever elusive, but freedom from unhappiness is attainable now, by facing “what is” rather than making up stories about it. Unhappiness covers up your natural state of well-being and inner peace, the source of true happiness.” p. 96

What comes up when you read this?  Go beyond thought and write down in the comment section any emotions, feelings or insights that arise.  I would appreciate this discussion very much. 

Love and light
