Ingredients for Happiness

To be happy in life, you need to remember to do four things:

  1. Show up
  2. Listen
  3. Be passionate
  4. Let go of the outcomes

Number four is very tough.

    The last one is one of the main takeaways from Bhaghavad Gita. It is especially tough in conjunction with item 3.

    So true for number 4. I am learning it right now. I've been painting for a while and in the last couple of years, I haven't done anything. Recently, I've tried again and I got no pleasure out of it. But I didn't give up because I love to paint but I just could not find pleasure in it any longer. So recently I got back to painting and decided to throw away my painting after finishing it. I rediscovered the pleasure of painting because I decided to 'let go of the outcome.' The stress of wanting to produce a 'master piece' every time I painted was taking away all the pleasure out of the process.

    Happiness is a state of mind that really depends how we see the situations in our lives each day. you can have all the riches in the world but still see it as a lonely place.~,'
