    True happiness comes from inner contentment. But how do you go about achieving inner contentment, and therefore happiness? The most important step you can take is to start appreciating what you already have. You may not have your dream job, but you have a job that pays the bills, co-workers who are friendly, and a boss who isn’t abusive. Can you be happy about that? Or you and your partner may have recently had a huge fight, but think about why you fell in love and wanted to be with them in the first place. If this person is kind, caring, compassionate and loving and treats you with respect, you can still appreciate being in a relationship with them despite their imperfections.
    When we take the time to consider the abundance of good things we already have, we begin to develop an inner contentment that leads to happiness
    Lesya Ivyhas quotedlast year
    If you maintain a feeling of compassion, loving kindness, then something automatically opens your inner door. Through that, you can communicate more easily with other people. And that feeling of warmth creates a kind of openness…There’s less feelings of fear, self-doubt, and insecurity…I think that cultivating positive mental states like kindness and compassion definitely leads to better psychological health and happiness.”

    It came as a shock, then, when the Dalai Lama enlightened Dr Cutler to the concept that happiness could be developed and sustained through training the mind.

    What is heartbreaking about a fear of appearing foolish is that it holds people back from achieving amazing things.
    Lesya Ivyhas quotedlast year
    There are some people, though, that prolong their suffering unnecessarily. They do this by keeping the pain alive, replaying it in their mind over and over again, and constantly feeling like a victim.
    Lesya Ivyhas quotedlast year
    While we may not like to admit it, much of our suffering is self-perpetuated.
    Lesya Ivyhas quotedlast year
    we need to recognize that it is a part of life that we all deal with.
    Lesya Ivyhas quotedlast year
    Many people try to avoid suffering, sometimes through the abuse of drugs and alcohol. Others repress their feelings, which can cause depression, physical pain, and even disease.

    “As long as there is a lack of the inner discipline that brings calmness of mind, no matter what external facilities or conditions you have, they will never give you the feeling of joy and happiness that you are seeking.”
