The way of happiness

By 18th April 2011December 9th, 2019No Comments

Full happiness eludes those who seek it…
It cannot be bought cheaply or ensnared.
Happiness and sadness are closely paired…
For happiness is gained through discomfort.

Happiness and sadness are of the same.
One can’t be happy unless one has been sad…
One must balance both the good and the bad…
They are both part of the emotional frame.

To achieve happiness…to be content…
Is to refrain from that which makes one feel sad…
And meet the restless spirit and the bad.
To find full freedom and abandonment…

Unburden all discomfort and sorrow…
And only then will pleasant feelings flow.
