Episode 43: Discover Authentic Joy by Following Your True Heart YES -
The pursuit of joy and happiness is a chronic “When Then Syndrome” fueled by the ego. When I achieve this; then I will be happy. People spend so much time and energy chasing, seeking, yearning, wanting and running after joy and happiness that it keeps them from being fully present. The pursuit keeps us one step ahead of the present moment chasing an illusion of happiness that doesn’t exist outside ourselves. Joy is not on the outside. Happiness doesn’t reside in what we have, where we are or what we are doing. Joy and happiness is something within us that arises naturally when we are in alignment with our true heart YES.
