Happiness is your responsibility


Buddha taught that 'happiness is entirely your responsibility, and that it comes from within yourself. Happiness found through any other method is fake and fleeting.' That's something I can relate to.

To combat your own delusions you should examine your brain on a daily basis, try to understand why you want or need certain things.

Focus on the present day, and live moment by moment instead of constantly seeking something that may never happen.

When you start to combat negative thought patterns you will discover the freedom and happiness gained as and when delusions are overcome, your mojo will be restored!

By being mindful of your own delusions you can access a happier more accepting state of mind and greater self-awareness.

Learn that life can only ever be lived in the moment, and that the only way to be happy, is to be happy right now.

Buddhist or not, that's good advice everyone can use.
