Happy New Year!!!!

Since the focus on a new year is happiness, thought I'd pass along this diddy. I am working on happiness within rather than trying to grab it from without. These Buddhist guys are onto something ;)

Happiness and suffering come from your own mind, not from outside. Your own mind is the cause of happiness; your own mind is the cause of suffering. To obtain happiness and pacify suffering, you have to work within your own mind.

-Lama Zopa Rinpoche, "The Door To Satisfaction"

Good thoughts. If only it were easier to do.

I hope you have a Happy year if it's what you desire! :)
