Rule #46 11/30/15
You Are Responsible for Your Own Happiness.
The more we hold tight to the belief that circumstances and people are the reason for our suffering, the more we place our power to be happy now into someone else's hands, and this happiness will remain elusive for us until we recognize that we just cannot wait for the people around us or the experiences we are facing to change in order for us to express our true nature; otherwise our state of being is conditional and not constant.
We chase material things, we chase for peoples affection and approval, we chase body weight and body figures, we chase money, we chase people to change, we chase justice and politics, we chase and we chase and we chase, sometimes we get lucky and catch what were chasing but that satisfaction just never seems to last, we will always find a reason to chase something else, this deep longing and feeling that something is missing or needed seems to always creep back into our consciousness because we fail to recognize that what we really truly want can only come from within. Happiness comes from within and you are the only person responsible for creating it for yourself. ~Will "Story" Rivera
