You search so hard for happiness, but how can you find it by searching for it? Happiness comes from within, the natural result of what you do in life. The more you spread joy to others, the more it will come back to you. If what you’ve been doing has not generated the joy and happiness you desire, it is time to change your approach. Stop searching. Stop desiring. Just give. Practice kindness. Share yourself. Give without expectations and it will be returned a hundred times over. Everything in life comes back to you.
Beneath your fears and insecurities, your true nature is pure joy. It isn’t something outside that you can achieve, it is something inside you’ve forgotten—your essence—what you are and what you were meant to be.
When you compare your level of happiness to what you perceive to be someone else’s level of happiness, you become dissatisfied, but the comparison arises from your ego and is always futile. You can’t know how others relate to their lives. Everyone is unique. The person who appears to have it all may not be able to enjoy anything as much as you enjoy looking at a spring flower. When you stop comparing, you will experience your joyful essence.
Peace and Light,

Use your powers of perception to give yourself an advantage in any situation. As in the martial art of aikido, consider yielding to others in order to receive their power and to learn their direction. Then you can lead a corresponding effort to use their power to your benefit.
To yield you must open, give up all judgement and go beyond objectivity. Become an observer by using your perceptive abilities to walk in the other person’s shoes. With this awareness you can act accordingly, keeping in mind that when you act with intent you incur karma.
This is an ideal time to establish a rapport with others. By maintaining a viewpoint of unconditional love, your perceptions will remain clear and accurate. You can use this awareness to attain peace, balance, harmony and justice.
The more you use your perceptive abilities in positive ways, the more you round out and refine your own character. This gives you the ability to influence and lead others with vision, or to live a rich life with little interference from others.
Peace and Light,
