Happiness is our Nature

Happiness is our inherent nature. You don’t have to search to be happy, you only have to stop seeking to be unhappy. When you stop looking to find happiness through temporary objects, then you are happy. Regardless of life’s apparent imperfections, everything is interconnected. Everything that happens, all occurrences, are a gift from God. Happiness is the enjoyment of our native condition, life is truly radiant with the blessing of the Divine.

The Transcendence of Ego

If we are going to be happy, we cannot live in denial about the ego. If we do not accept what is true, we are just living a false existence. To be happy is to be genuine in everything that we do. It is the way of discipline, honesty and responsibility. The surrender of the ego to a spiritual friend is the essence of the action of spiritual practice and enlightenment. Enlightenment is the enjoyment of happiness! The realization of happiness is reflected in the enjoyment of unobstructed relationship, this is the joy of enlightenment. The transcendence of ego is the realization of happiness.


Understanding Suffering

Understanding Suffering

We are suffering from a lack of understanding about our pain, and what real happiness means to us. We do not enjoy the benefits of having a deeper understanding about our human conditon. We are unconscious of the situation we are creating for ourselves, and why we are continually frustrated. Suffering is the key to self-awareness because it shows us what is not genuine! It helps us understand what real Consciousness is. Essentially, we are suffering from a lack of understanding about the true nature of suffering. We have to begin to understand our suffering if we are going to experience more Conscious-awareness. Once we understand how we are suffering, we can begin to transcend it. As we recognize and transcend our suffering in each moment that it arises, we tend to enjoy Consciousness more and more. Consciousness is our native condition; understanding suffering is the key to the enjoyment of more Conscious-awareness in our daily lives.
