Happiness is Always There

Papaji

Happiness is permanent. It is always there.
What comes and goes is unhappiness.

If you identify with what comes and goes, you will be unhappy. If you identify with what is permanent and always there, you are happiness itself.

Embrace

You know the parlor trick.
wrap your arms around your own body
and from the back it looks like
someone is embracing you
her hands grasping your shirt
her fingernails teasing your neck
from the front it is another story
you never looked so alone
your crossed elbows and screwy grin
you could be waiting for a tailor
to fit you with a straight jacket
one that would hold you really tight.

— The First Dream, Billy Collins

Dreams vs Reality

There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.

Fear

Our deepest fears are like dragons guarding our deepest treasure.
— Rainier Maria Rilke

We cannot really be afraid of something if we don’t know what it is. What we are actually afraid of is that the unknown might be something that we already know and don’t like.
