“Happiness is your nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside.” — Ramana Maharishi
Yesterday’s post spoke of escape, implying that when faced with an overwhelming obstacle, we may run from it, try to avoid it, ignore it, medicate it, deny it, etc.
We are always going to be faced with life’s challenges. And the proverbial mid life crisis is more or less a universal phenomenon for virtually all adults.
We get to a place, don’t like it, and then think we can take a short cut to move past it. Maybe. Maybe some can. I certainly couldn’t.
However, when I started to look inside for the answers instead of outside, my life began to transform.
Consider this, there is infinite joy to be had, to be discovered, to be shared. I mean, happiness is our nature.
When I dream without any limits, I dream of others having this wonderful mid life celebration, instead of the proverbial midlife crisis.
