The Course of Meditation is a celebration!
We come to oxygenate body, mind, and spirit and to taste the joy of being.
All human beings are looking for happiness. Every day, underlying our every activity, including at night when we dream, the quest to be happier is ever there. But the more we search for happiness the more it eludes us.
It may seem irrational, but happiness does not depend on external factors and circumstances. It is inherent in our natural state of being.
The feeling of unhappiness, separation, and sadness are projections of the mind and are not real. Unfortunately we live in this illusory atmosphere of thoughts, sometimes even for all life long.
When these projections disappear, we instantly find ourselves happy again.
