Happiness is probably the most common desire we all have. And people try everything to reach it.

But, eventually, they realize it’s not a destination, you don’t need to possess anything in particular to get it. It’s your right, your choice.

Happiness is right here, right now. You just need to eliminate all the things standing in its way – negativism, expectations, worries about the future and regrets for the past, countless desires, judging, comparing, trying to control things, etc.

This way we can’t improve, can’t grow spiritually and succeed in life. Because there’s always this thing we come back to. And progress can’t be made if we stay at one place.

Letting go is the answer. Being free from attachment and experiencing the present moment is our desired state…
