“The more you seek happiness through things, the more it will elude you. Nothing out there will ever satisfy you except temporarily and superficially, but you may need to experience many illusionments before you realise the truth. Things and conditions can give you pleasure, but they will also give you pain. Things and conditions can give you pleasure, but they can’t give you joy. Nothing can give you joy. Joy is uncaused and arises from within as the joy of being. It is an essential part of the inner state of peace. It is your natural state, not something that you need to work hard for or struggle to attain.”

Do you have a problem now?!
