There is only one way to achieve happiness. That way is to simply be happy. You are most likely wondering right now, how do I achieve happiness?" "Things just don't work like that, it doesn't take into consideration the times that I am miserable because of problems or issues that arise in my everyday life, not to mention the tragedies." At this stage I have to stop and meditate. Meditation can be done many different ways, just find which works best for your purposes.
Being happy more often than you are use to is an incredibly difficult task to accomplish-not in the doing of it once you know how and then in keeping conscious of what you have learned. Yet, I still say that with meditation it can be accomplished. The path that you have selected that brought you to your current situation was not a few days or weeks in the making, but a long and arduous path that has extended through many years.
In reality it has taken you as long as you have been alive to become the way you are today. It has also taken you that long to gain what you have achieved, to possess, and to land at your current condition. By finding the time to meditate and think about who you are, and whether what you have in your life is truly what you desire, If you are 100% satisfied with the way your life is going, congratulations-continue to do what you have been doing and you will acquire more of what you currently have in your life.
But if who you are, what you have, and your present situation are less than what you want or perhaps vary from what you long for, you have to start meditating about some basic alterations you will need to make in your life. Failure to make those alterations will find you continuing to seek the things you really would like in your life as the years fly past.
Because some of this that you are reading will seem out of reach, preposterous, or to you maybe even irrational and it may at first offend you, causing you to ridicule what you are reading and maybe even make you feel you need to reject what you have read. I really want to suggest to you that prior to rejecting how meditation can assist you through your life, ask yourself whether or not you want it to be true-then for your benefit please give yourself the chance to see it as true.
In this day and time with all the things we have to deal with in our lives it is very hard to stay on a positive level and be happy all the time, But just by taking a few moments a day just meditating by yourself will help you keep things in perspective where instead of being unhappy about the circumstances you are in, you can find a way to find the happy part of being unhappy.
