How to be happy¶
Don’t stick on material wealth. Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. The happiest people are those who need the least. There are people who all their private property away and then followed Jesus.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. A pure heart is transparent like a crystal: you can see what happens inside. There is nothing you hide from yourself. Our hearts receive wounds every day. When a wound does not heal properly, it leaves a scar. Every scar makes your heart less pure. When a wound heals properly, then it becomes –after some time– a blessing: it makes our heart grow, become bigger and wider.
Inspired by Matthew 5:3-12, Luke 6:20–22
The real source of peace of mind is love and compassion; not the love we feel for those who are close and already affectionate towards us, but an unlimited sense of altruism, a love that can be extended to all beings, including your enemy, which only human beings are capable of. – Dalai Lama via Twitter
An amazing thing happens when you stop seeking approval and validation from others; you find it. – Mandy Hale
