Happiness is Within You

Most of us spend a lifetime chasing down happiness…and it somehow is so elusive. I’ll be happy when I graduate, I’ll be happy when I’m married, I’ll be happy when we have a house, I’ll be happy when my bills are paid, etc. Even when we achieve a goal, there is always another one. Now, here is the beauty of Begin Within. Happiness is always inside of you. It is always there, but gets covered up by other emotions. All of these emotions are triggered by what’s going on outside of you, but the happiness, love, joy or any other emotion resides inside… all the time. You can wait for something outside of you to trigger happiness, or you can take command and trigger it yourself.

We all want happiness. We know we want it but in order to achieve it, we need to know what it is; otherwise, how will you know when you have it? Maybe you are already happy and you are just not paying attention to it. You’re paying more attention to what’s not going right, what’s wrong with things, what needs to be changed. The thing is, no matter what we do accomplish, ego is soon after the next golden ring. “Life will be great once I graduate from high school. Life will be great once I get a job.

by Serge Kahili King, Ph.D. Aloha International The Aloha Spirit is a well known reference to the attitude of friendly acceptance for which the Hawaiian Islands are so famous.
