happiness

The other quality that I found in awakening was a love for the mere fact of existence itself. It wasn’t a love that was caused by anything. It wasn’t based on a good day, or a good person, or a good encounter, or a good feeling. In fact, it could be not such a good day, not such a good encounter, not such a good person, or not such a good feeling, and there was still just as much love for it. This is a love that loves to live this life because in life it is actually meeting itself moment to moment.
