Swami Satchidananda

 “Everyone is searching for inner peace and joy. Some people want to be happy quickly, so they take shortcuts and get temporary happiness. But borrowed joy comes and goes. The happiness that we seem to be getting by our daily efforts is fleeting and mixed with a lot of troubles, worries, and unhappiness.

We keep trying to find that happiness and we keep missing it. When we finally tire of searching for happiness outside, we sit quietly and wonder, “What is this? Why am I unhappy? Why do I lose the happiness that I have?”

If we’re sincere and analyze well, we find, ultimately, that happiness never comes from outside. Happiness simply is. Our true nature is peace and joy—if only we don’t disturb it.”
