What Robert brought home to me was the power of asking questions like, "What is Happiness for me?" and treating Happiness, not as a destination, but as an inquiry.
Here are some of my fave quotes from Robert that week
"When we forget who we are, we forget what happiness is"
"Happiness is a non-deserving issue"
"Happiness is the experience of your true nature"
"Will your choices help you be happy Now... or Eventually?"
Where am I with my inquiry? For me, today, happiness is relaxing into me exactly as I am and exactly as I am not. Self-love and self-acceptance may sound pretty dumb when rolled up into pat utterances like "love yourself" or "I'm OK, You're OK" but when you ask what that looks like and what it means for you, it can become meaningful.
What is happiness?
when I stop trying to 'become'
when I'm kind and loving
when I'm not believing all my small thoughts about myself
the space when I'm not trying to rid myself of anything
Happiness is when I look and really see that I'm always just one thought away from happiness.
