Normally when we think of happiness, the programming from our life has taught us to think that it's found in things - holidays, friends, relationships, shopping. But does any of that truly last, or is it just conditional?
You know deep down it's conditional. Buying something gives you a dopamine hit, but it doesn't really last. Things change, and happiness disappears with it.
But what if there was a place you could go to that has infinitely happy?
The place of true happiness is within you
You may have heard of this being said - that happiness is within you.
OK yeah that sounds great, but so what? How do I actually access it? If it's within me, why can't I just always be happy?
The reason why is because in our minds, we have this self constructed false "mind world" and we're trapped inside of it.
Just think about it - if you weren't trapped inside of it and a slave to what it dictates, you would literally just be able to BE happy - it's YOUR mind. So why can't you just BE happy?
Because just like Artificial Intelligence, this mind is programmed from the life we have lived, so we're like little robots that are just behaving according to the coding from the life lived.
This "mind world" then covers up and overlaps the real world and so we live being dictated by it.
So what is the secret to true happiness?
The secret is to come out of that mind world.
The way to do that is self reflection meditation and discarding all of those things from your mind - like cleaning out a hard drive.
All of that is just your false mind, it's just a limited perspective that you've been deceived by, but once you burst that bubble and are reborn as your true self - the infinite universe - you will become one with the miracle of life and find the place of eternal happiness.
Along the way to true happiness, you can also develop these habits
There are many good habits which will help you become even more happy, but you can really help these habits take root and grow in your mind when you have a clear mind.
Gratitude is one of the best known practices, to be grateful for everything every day.
Having positive relationships will definitely increase your happiness.
Eating well and taking care of your body with regular exercise and yoga prevents the negativity of diseases building up.
Finding purpose and a meaning to life - which you can find easily once you clear your mind.
Doing things for others is a place of abundant joy, and something you do far more naturally when you are outside of your self-centred bubble.
The ultimate secret to happiness is to clear away the mind world, which covers up the source of your true, unconditional happiness.
There's many positive habits which will help you become even more happy, but you can really help these habits take root and grow in your mind when you have a clear mind.
