Many of us believe that happiness can somehow come only by great effort, and we spend a lifetime seeking it. But unending joy is actually closer to us than our own skin, and there is nothing we have to do or get or be to experience it. All we have to do is stop driving it away. And the principal way in which we drive happiness away is “if/then” thinking–believing that IF this happens, THEN I will be happy. The truth is you have everything it takes to be happy right now.
