How can you always be happy? Forget about "always" -- then you will be happy.

In always wanting to be comfortable, you become lazy.
In always wanting perfection, you become angry.
In always wanting to be rich, you become greedy.

Fear arises when we do not realize that only life is for always.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in Celebrating Silence by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar


To Practice This Thought:
As you notice the things and feelings you want today, release any grasping you have for them with a deep breath and reminder of their impermanence.
