Sustainable joy

To find what brings us lasting joy in our soul, versus the ‘normal’ pursuit of short-term happiness hits of instant-gratification, takes time and patience.

It also takes sacrificing the short-term happiness hits and building a practice of being present in this moment as often as possible.

This moment is where we find sustainable joy.

Ordinary moment

The amazing is there within what we are conditioned to see as the ‘ordinary’. We deny this present moment, for what we imagine to be a better one, either a memory of a past event or the projection into the fantasy of the future. The mind doesn’t want now, and therefore it is always seeking something else.

All that seeking makes us blind to what is actually around us and happening right now, the only moment that anything is real, the only time we can experience anything.

When we stop seeking, we see all that is amazing in this ordinary moment.
