Happiness as it is


Through the ages it has been stated that true happiness is dependent on nothing. This in fact is true. The happiness that lies within the heart is independent of all worldly activities and attachments. In stillness and solitude it resides like a diamond deep within the earth. As your senses flow outward, your awareness is taken away from this eternal joy that you brought when you entered this world. Most people engage in all manner of activity trying to emulate this great joy. The problem is that the joy of activity is dependent on the activity itself. This leads to a transient happiness that is as fickle as the mind. When you learn to disengage from the outward flowing senses and turn your awareness inward towards its source, you begin to experience that endless joy within your own being. It surpasses the happiness of wealth and relationships. It demands nothing as it gives as freely as the sun. It is as comforting as a mother’s embrace and as limitless as the sky. Because of its existence you are able to live. Remember the saying,”Man does not live on bread alone.”? This teaching points us to the truth being discussed here. Your life is a product of Life itself, not atoms, molecules and proteins. Matter is enlivened by the life principle. Whether you call it chi, shakti, vital force, spirit, love, consciousness, the beloved, tao, etc. it does not matter. The words vary but the experience the words point to is universal. This is not a new notion. It is recognized by all people and ancient teachings around the world.

So, take time in the day to honor this life giving force that has been there as you have taken every breath. Befriend your inner light and learn to experience happiness as it is.

By the end of his first year at NCNM he knew that homeopathy was going to be a large part of his practice. Since graduating he has maintained a private practice and over the last several years he has taught classes on homeopathy to graduate students and colleagues. He has used homeopathy in his practice to help his patients with a wide range of maladies including eczema, asthma, anxiety, depression, migraine headaches, arthritis, etc. Homeopathy is a system of medicine that recognizes the inherent Spirit of the individual as the source of health and wellbeing. As a perpetual student of medicine, healing, life, and human nature he tries to learn from all life experiences. Striving to broaden his understanding of homeopathy and this phenomenon we call the human experience, he has studied the works of all great teachers, philosophies, and religions. Of greatest interest to him is the practice of Meditation. He has held a meditative practice over the last 25 years, and has learned more in the depths of stillness than all of his hours of reading.
