Are you constantly seeking a way to find happiness? In a world filled with darkness, depression and fear, I think EVERYONE is hoping to find some sort of ‘secret way’ that they can attain utter happiness and fulfillment.
I have often looked at other people, knowing very well that what we observe is rarely the truth, and found them to look absolutely, blissfully happy. I’ve often envied them this, as my life definitely is NOT always happy. One should constantly reminds oneself that life is like a picture book and every moment a snapshot. The smiling faces we always seem to see on social media is but a photo, a quick snap, taken at a moment when the subject was smiling or told to smile. The truth is, none of us are ever really happy. But the good news is, Aadil Palkhivala, through his unique yoga and meditation philosophy, can help you to finally find what you seek.
Look what he says in his article for Yoga Journal: “Happiness happens when we choose it over trying to be like everybody else, trying to have what others have. When we compare ourselves at all times to others, we feel constant discontent. Santosha (contentment) brings happiness. And contentment must come from a constant striving for happiness; happiness stops when we stop growing or stagnate. We are here to evolve.” [07/2017]

“Whether it’s loved ones, neighbors, colleagues, friends, acquaintances, or strangers, our days often consist of having to interact, to talk, to listen, and to give of ourselves, without any time alone. Sure, we enjoy, but often the result is that when we find ourselves in solitude, we get scared. It’s surprising how easy it is to go from being uncomfortable in a room alone to fearing that there’s no one to love us, and no one there to be a witness to our lives.”
