How to escape Endless spiral of juggling happiness, sadness, love and fear?
But we do have to consider what goals are really important to our life, our world and our wellbeing. Getting that promotion, losing weight, buying the car, the house or even meeting someone and falling in love are all things that we seek outside of ourselves in order to make us happy – and sooner or later those things (or at least the initial joy of those things) leaves. Once we’ve fixed something in our lives, another thing seems to break
Not to look outside of ourselves for happiness, but to realise that peace and happiness lies within. When we rely on things which are external to us to bring us freedom, we inevitably bind ourselves to discontentment even more. Our ego experiences joy, pain, loss, desire, greed and happiness, and we ultimately become attached to these experiences by either attempting to push them away, or by clinging to them – either way, it doesn’t tend to end well…
Realizing this, we can come closer to accepting that as nature constantly changes around us – the weather, the seasons, temperatures and life cycles – our body and mind too are subject to change. What made ‘us’ (and by ‘us’ I mean our body, mind and ego) ecstatic one moment may cause grief the next, but who we truly are underneath is unchanging, pure and true, and more than good enough!
