By „happy“ I mean experiencing „happiness“.
But what does „Happiness“ mean?
There are two kinds of happiness:
One is called worldly happiness and it’s the kind of pleasures that we have and enjoy, and rightfully so, the pleasures of our senses, the pleasures of our connections with one another in all meaningful ways.
The other is called happiness of wisdom. It’s the happiness for no reason. It’s the happiness that is not dependent on particular conditions. It’s the happiness that understands how to live wisely and discover freedom and compassion, no matter what the changing circumstances.
Jack Kornfield – Heart Wisdom Ep. 35
So in this journey through life I will be both enjoying wordly happiness while also cultivating my innate wisdom, going deeper to uncover a deep sense of connection and joy.
