Happiness truly lies within our hearts

先有幸福的感覺,才有幸福的結果,還是先需要用幸福的環境因素,才有幸福的結果?

即使環境因素,條件不好,可不可以製造出幸福的結果?

即使結果不是完全向着自己期望的方向,是否仍可以有幸福的感覺?

Happiness is a state of mind regardless the outcome, external factors or any current circumstances inside or outside. Same as self value, regardless our status, health conditions, wealth...
We know this but when we are facing challenges, we can truly benefit from this status of mind.



Simple, profound truths are the realm of this Buddhist nun. Her message? The gift of happiness truly lies within our own hearts and minds. Gen Kelsang Nyema, exuding a peacefulness that immediately connects with the audience, starts by asking three questions: Are you having a good day? Why? Tomorrow, would you rather have a good day or a bad day? She teaches that we cannot put our happiness at the whim of other people and of circumstances. If we want to be happy, we have to "stop outsourcing our happiness to other people" and cultivate a source of inner peace. What happens next is quite astounding. The whole crowd of 350+ people proceeds to meditate with Nyema. There's a little squirming at first, but as she leads the audience through a calm citation of how to rest the mind, audience members feel a collective relaxation flow into the room and through the people. Fascinating! Refreshing.
