“The way of the creative works through change and transformation, so that each thing receives its true nature and destiny and comes into permanent accord with the great harmony:  this is what furthers and what perseveres.”

— I Ching

Awakening

“Awakening”  |  Anthony Satori

“That is the real spiritual awakening, when something emerges from within you that is deeper than who you thought you were.  So, the person is still there, but one could almost say that something more powerful shines through the person.”

— Eckhart Tolle

This Happiness

“This Happiness”  |  Anthony Satori

“This happiness consisted of nothing else but the harmony of the few things around me with my own existence, a feeling of contentment and well-being that needed no changes and no intensification.”

— Hermann Hesse

A philosophy of simplicity, and the cultivation of inner/outer harmony, these are the sources of true happiness.  The contented one knows that happiness is not something “out there” that needs to be chased and pursued, but rather, if one understands and internalizes the principles of simplicity and harmony, everything that is needed for happiness is right here, right now, within reach, right in our own backyard.

This does not, however, mean that the contented one does not appreciate and savor every moment of new experience, of elevated quality, of unique elegance and beauty.  In fact, it is quite the opposite.  Because the contented one does not need these things to be truly happy, such treasures can be openly welcomed into their world, and the greatest pleasure and value and joy can be derived from them — naturally and purely — when they arrive.
