Now, happiness comes from feeling within yourself the wonder and the joy that is within yourself, and there is no other way in any world of experiencing happiness. You cannot expect a lover to give it to you, you cannot expect a child to give it to you, you cannot expect events to give it to you.

It is yours by right if you claim it, and if you do not claim it, or if you turn your back upon it, then it seems to you that you must look for it in others or that others are always happier than you are. Now, and all of you know what I am going to say, the tiniest cell within your tiniest toe is happy.

Feel its happiness. Feel the vitality that is your self as it always pervades your being. It is within you now, keeping you alive and sitting there so pert and pretty, so acknowledge it and listen and feel within yourself for that life energy that is always within you.

Look at a leaf or at a teaspoon or at one of your children or simply at a shadow and feel the miraculous uniqueness of what you see, and the miracle of the eyes that allow you to see it and the power of the brain that is able to make these connections, and then the happiness rides up through your being and you wonder how it was that you did not see it before.

But money will not make you happy, and alone, love from another will not make you happy. But love of yourself will, and it will lead to happiness for yourself and for others.

Winter

I the midst of winter, I finally learned
that there was in me an invincible summer.

Another Day of Loving

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart,
and a song of praise upon your lips.
G. Khalil Gibran
