Never ignore the feelings that don’t seem to make sense. It’s about how you’re like a lighthouse, always searching far into the distance. But the thing you’re looking for is usually close to you and always has been. That’s why you have to look within yourself to find answers instead of searching beyond. Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.
When we give freely, we feel full and complete; when we withhold, we feel small, petty, impotent, and lacking.
We are meant to learn this great truth, that giving fulfills us, while withholding and trying to get causes us to feel empty and even more needy. This truth runs counter to our programming, which drives us to try to get something from others to fulfill our neediness, only to end up even more needy, grasping, lacking, and unfulfilled.
Happiness is part of who we are. Joy is but a feeling, you have everything you need for complete peace and total happiness right now. Patience is a key that unlocks the door to a more fulfilling life. It is through a cultivation of patience that we become powerful teachers, great businessmen and women, good friends, and a live a happier life.
