Pleasure, Happiness and
Pleasure is on the outside, happiness is on the inside.
Pleasure is subject to situations and conditions; happiness is controlled by the mind.
The mind can get addicted to happiness; contentment lets the mind stay free.
With contentment there can be no craving.
Let the desire to want and the need to shun or avoid evaporate like dewdrops in the morning sun.
A grasping person does not find lasting happiness or contentment.
To understand the true nature of things is to be in tune with nature and dance to the music of joy.
Accidents or luck do not just happen, luck is attracted by thoughtfulness, good deeds and a smiling good disposition.
These good qualities foster friendships and friends give help and support to one another.
Friends give ideas, inspiration and encouragement as well as constructive criticism about faults we need to be aware of.
There are many things we need to know, still it is not only what you know it is also who you know.
Follow only those on the righteous path and those who are straying from what is right lead by your example.
This is the only way to make a change in your world and it is in your immediate environment that it will take effect first.
This is a lifelong endeavor, leaving little room for complaining, gossiping or worry about your aches and pains.
Complaining, arguing and getting angry will not contribute to your luck.
The more you practice being a nice person the luckier you will be.
There will still be times when your luck appears to have deserted you; this is when you need to test your ability to cope.
Remember everything is subject to change both the good times and the bad times in time change.
Behind the clouds the sun still shines, every adversity you have survived has made you stronger.
To break or lose some passion is not the problem it is fretting and getting upset that is causing all your troubles.
Pain is something we have to put up with; suffering is something we choose to do.
Look at the less fortunate the ones worse off; do not envy those that appear to have it all.
You can have fleeting pleasures, some happiness or lasting contentment it is your choice.
