Freedom from Happiness

This is the paradoxical secret:

If you are not happy, then give up on happiness. Give up on getting or having or holding onto anything for yourself. Instead, surrender yourself unconditionally to the joy, happiness, peace, and freedom from suffering of everybody else, everywhere. Give yourself, completely, to affection and compassion. Then everywhere, there will be joy, happiness, peace, and freedom. The universe will be saturated with an unshakable confidence that only comes from purity and innocence. What happened to the division between “you” and “everybody else”?

-Scott Morrison-
