“No road to happiness or sorrow… Find them in yourself.”
Often we look around for the right “path” to go down. Perhaps you found this website in a quest for knowledge or spiritual expansion. Let me be the first to tell you, you will not find it here. Here you will only find words uttered through a keyboard by someone that should instead be outside appreciating life, the world, and the people.
You should not attach any feelings or expectations to any website, any preacher, or any teacher. We may miss the true message these people are trying to express to us. We need to drop our expectations, preconceptions, stereotypes, and listen, watch, and learn with open minds adn open hearts. Even then, you will not find any answers, nor will you find happiness or sorrow… until you look within yourself.
We must strive to master our own minds. When things happen in our lives, we must not give these things complete power over our emotions. We cannot let an external influence dictate whether we are happy or sad. We have the power, the ability to control this ourselves. Know this and understand this. I see far too many people letting stressors, events, and people get to them and affect their moods to such a degree that stress is making them unhealthy.
We have the power to be happy, it is inside of us. Stop looking elsewhere.
