Simple Ways To Find True Happiness

James Allen: Find True Happiness – Above life Turmoil  – dwell no more in complaints about, and revolt against, the evil in others, and commence to live free from all wrong and evil yourself.

– Daily living in harshness, impurity, or unhappiness adds to the world’s sorrow, but daily living in goodwill and happiness adds to the world’s happiness, regardless of religious views.

True Happiness Cannot Be Found In Things That Change And Pass Away. Pleasure And Pain Alternate Inexorably. Happiness Comes From The Self And Can Be Found In The Self Only. Find Your Real Self And All Else Will Come With It. - Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

keep a lovely mood, imagine only pure and loving ideas, and be joyful in any situations

To maintain an unchangeable sweetness of disposition, to think only thoughts that are pure and gentle, and to be happy under all circumstances, such blessed conditions and such beauty of character and life should be the aim of all, and particularly so of those who wish to lessen the misery of the world. If anyone has failed to lift himself above ungentleness,

impurity, and unhappiness, he is greatly deluded if he imagines he can make the world happier by the propagation of any theory or theology.

The Greatest Source Of Unhappiness Comes From Inside. - Jim Rohn

He who is daily living in harshness, impurity, or unhappiness is day by day adding to the sum of the world’s misery; whereas he who continually lives in goodwill, and does not depart from happiness, is day by day increasing the sum of the world’s happiness, and this independently of any religious beliefs which these may or may not hold.

Learn to be kind, generous, loving, and joyful

He who has not learned how to be gentle, or giving, loving and happy, has learned very little, great though his book-learning and profound his acquaintance which the letter of Scripture may be, for it is in the process of becoming gentle, pure, and happy that the deep, real and enduring lessons of life are learned. The unbroken sweetness of conduct in the face of all outward antagonism is the infallible indication of a self-conquered soul, the witness of wisdom, and the proof of the possession of Truth.

Pure happiness is the rightful and healthy condition of the soul

A sweet and happy soul is the ripened fruit of experience and wisdom, and it sheds abroad the invisible yet powerful aroma of its influence, gladdening the hearts of others, and purifying the world. And all who will, and who have not yet commenced, may begin this day, if they will so resolve, to live sweetly and happily, as becomes the dignity of true manhood or womanhood. Do not say that your surroundings are against you.

A man’s surroundings are never against him; they are there to aid him, and all those outward occurrences over which you lose sweetness and peace of mind are the very conditions necessary to your development, and it is only by meeting and overcoming them that you can learn, and grow, and ripen. The fault is in yourself.

Pure happiness is the rightful and healthy condition of the soul, and all may possess it if they will live purely and unselfish.

“Have goodwill

To all that lives, letting unkindness die,

And greed and wrath, so that your lives be made

Like soft airs passing by.”

James Allen

Is this too difficult for you?

Then unrest and unhappiness will continue to dwell with you. Your belief and aspiration and resolve are all that is necessary to make it easy, to render it in the near future a thing accomplished, a blessed state realized.

Despondency, irritability, anxiety and complaining, condemning and grumbling all these are thought-cankers, mind-diseases; they are the indications of a wrong mental condition, and those who suffer therefrom would do well to remedy their thinking and conduct.

It is true there is much sin and misery in the world so that all our love and compassion are needed, but our misery is not needed- there is already too much of that. No, it is our cheerfulness and happiness that are

needed for there is too little of that. We can give nothing better to the world than the beauty of life and character; without this, all other things are vain; this is pre-eminently excellent; it is enduring, real, and not to be overthrown, and it includes all joy and blessedness.

Cease to dwell pessimistically upon the wrongs around you

dwell no more in complaints about, and revolt against, the evil in others, and commence to live free from all wrong and evil yourself. Peace of mind, pure religion, and true reform lie this way. If you would have others true, be true; if you would have the world emancipated from misery and sin, emancipate yourself; if you would have your home and your surroundings happy, be happy. You can transform everything around you if you will transform yourself.
