Happiness is a good feeling
It charges us
It makes us confident
It is the goal for almost everything we do
And it’s source can be multiple things – money, love, appreciation, victory.
And we end up searching for happiness.
All our lives
In all our doings
When instead, the search should be for peace
Because peace is what contains you
Peace is what stays with you
Peace is what you gift yourself
Especially when happiness eludes you
There is a certain magic about being calm. And every single day I tell myself – if I remain at peace with myself, with my work, with my world – I can conquer it.
I don’t have to crave to be happy. That’s not in my control. That is not the reason for my peace.
Sukh hai alag (happiness is different)
Aur chain alag hai (and so is peace)
Par jo yeh dekhe woh nain alag hai (the eyes that realize this are different too)
Chain to hai apna (peace is within)
Sukh hai paraye (happiness comes from outside)
