The Key to Happiness


Q: What is right and what is wrong?

M: Generally, what causes suffering is wrong and what removes it, is right. 

The body and the mind are limited and therefore vulnerable; they need protection which gives rise to fear. As long as you identify yourself with them you are bound to suffer; realise your independence and remain happy.

I tell you, this is the secret of happiness. To believe that you depend on things and people for happiness is due to ignorance of your true nature; to know that you need nothing to be happy, except self-knowledge, is wisdom.

I AM THAT, 371.  Nisargadatta Maharaj 

(I pray that one day, in some lifetime to have the clarity that this man had. I am working on it, fearlessly and constantly.)
