It’s never our situation, but rather our THOUGHTS ABOUT OUR SITUATION that is the difference between living with a heavy heart, and living lighter and freer. The situation is always- just as it is.

“See if you can catch the voice in your head, perhaps in the very moment it complains about something, and recognize it for what it is: the voice of the ego, no more than a thought. Whenever you notice that voice, you will also realize that you are not the voice, but the one who is aware of it.”

People believe their happiness solely depends on what happens to them. But, what happens to us is the most unstable thing in the world- it is ever-changing. How can we stay grounded and stable when the ground beneath us constantly moves? That’s the challenge!

So, if you are struggling right now, and if you feel like you can’t change your current situation, see if you can change your VIEW or MINDSET about your situation. It helps a lot, and is game changing for your happiness.
