If you want constant happiness
Then every day
Enlarge the circle of your love.
We all long for abiding happiness, yet amidst the trials and tribulations of daily living we often fall short of our happiness-goal. In the time of Socrates people believed that happiness was reserved only for those the gods favored. Socrates taught that happiness was attainable through our effort.
Love opens our hearts and expands our minds. The more unconditionally we love the more expansive we become. Nelson Mandela said, “…love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” Let us take the path that is most natural to our being. As our awareness grows our limiting ego is transformed into the feeling of interconnectedness with all beings.
