When we stop trying to create happiness

When we stop trying to create happiness, happiness comes by itself.

It is a common mistake to believe we have to work hard for happiness, or that happiness is conditioned by what we have, and who we are in society. Happiness is the experience of mind when there is no presence of fear. That's all. It's simple.
As with everything in the truly spiritual life, that which is valuable comes only when we have relinquished that which is invaluable – when we have let go.
So don't seek happiness, let go of your fears and obsessions, let go of your doubts and worries, and look, there it is!
May all beings be happy.
