If someone else decides what you should wear, what you should eat, and how you should be, it is called slavery. But right now, just about anyone can decide what is happening within you. Anyone can hijack the peace within you at any moment and make you angry and hateful. Anyone can create what they want within you. Is this not slavery?
Many people think excitement is happiness.... But when you are excited you are not peaceful. True happiness is based on peace.
Most of the world is like a mental hospital. Some persons are sick with jealousy, others with anger, hatred, passion. They are victims of their habits and emotions. But you can make your home a place of peace.
The quality of your life does not depend on your clothes, car, or home, but on how peaceful and joyful you are
The seed of suffering in you may be strong, but don't wait until you have no more suffering before allowing yourself to be happy.
