Transcendental happiness


Happiness is right in you
Happiness is right here
Happiness is right now

Happiness is now
Now is happiness.

Happiness is you
You is happiness.

Happiness is here
Here is happiness

There you are!

Compare with
There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way. You should be happy right in the here and now.

  1. Δεν υπάρχει αιτία γι’ αυτήν την έκσταση — όταν υπάρχει αιτία για τη χαρά, τότε αυτή δεν είναι πια χαρά. Απλά βρισκόταν εκεί και η σκέψη δεν μπορούσε να τη συλλάβει και να τη μετατρέψει σε ανάμνηση. Ερχόταν κατά κύματα, ένα ζωντανό πράγμα, που δεν μπορούσε να περιέχεται μέσα σε τίποτα και με αυτή τη χαρά αποτελούσε ευλογία. Ήταν εντελώς έξω από κάθε σκέψη και απαίτηση.

    There is no reason for this ecstasy—to have a cause for joy is no longer joy; it was simply there and thought could not capture it and make it into a remembrance. … It came wave upon wave, a living thing which nothing could contain and with this joy there was benediction. It was so utterly beyond all thought and demand.
    Krishnamurti

  2. Nothing is going to make us free because only the present moment can make us free. That realization is the awakening. Awakening as a future event has no meaning because awakening is the realization of Presence. So the new heaven, the awakened consciousness, is not a future state to be achieved. A new heaven and a new earth are arising within you at this moment, and if they are not arising at this moment, they are no more than a thought in your head and therefore not arising at all. What did Jesus tell his disciples? “Heaven is right here in the midst of you.”

    Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Create a Better Life

  3. Happiness by Lama Gendun Rinpoche

    Happiness cannot be found
    through great effort and willpower,
    but is already here, right now,
    in relaxation and letting go.
    Don’t strain yourself, there is nothing to do.
    Whatever arises in the mind
    has no importance at all,
    because it has no reality whatsoever.
    Don’t become attached to it. Don’t pass judgement.
    Let the game happen on its own,
    emerging and falling back – without changing anything –
    and all will vanish and begin anew, without end.
    Only our searching for happiness prevents us from seeing it.
    It is like a rainbow which you run after without ever catching it.
    Although it does not exist, it has always been there
    and accompanies you every instant.
    Don’t believe in the reality of good and bad experiences;
    they are like rainbows.
    Wanting to grasp the ungraspable you exhaust yourself in vain.
    As soon as you relax this grasping,
    there is space – open, inviting and comfortable.
    So make use of it. Everything is already yours.
    Search no more,
    Don’t go into the inextricable jungle
    looking for the elephant who is already quietly at home.
    Nothing to do,
    nothing to force,
    nothing to want
    and everything happens by itself.
