Happiness is not a destination. You can't reach it in future. You can only experience it in the present. Happiness is now. Not tomorrow.
Happiness is not a goal. Happiness cannot be planned. Can you plan your future emotion ? Nope, not possible.
You can't run after what you can't reach.
Happiness is a moment. You need to feel it right now. It can be felt only in the present moment.
To feel it now, you may like to make a note of 7 conditions which are conducive to it :
* be in touch with your inner self
* sensitivity to other human beings
* speaking with compassion
* helping others
* bringing a smile
* not fearing any loss
* having fun
These climatic conditions ensure the perfect settings for your happily swinging moods. Now, you are happy.
Don't run after happiness.
