Turn on to Happiness

It doesn’t matter how long we may have been stuck in a sense of our limitations. If we go into a darkened room and turn on the light, it doesn’t matter if the room has been dark for a day, a week, or ten thousand years — we turn on the light and it is illuminated. Once we control our capacity for love and happiness, the light has been turned on.”  – Sharon Salzberg

 

Many of us have been living in the shadows of our lives.    It’s as if we’re waiting for someone else to turn on the lights so we won’t be in the dark anymore. 

We want somebody else to make us happy.  Or we’re waiting for someone to love us to be happy.  We’ve somehow convinced ourselves that we can’t be happy on our own.

What we seem to forget is that we have access to the light switch. We have control over how happy we want to be or how much love we have in our lives.

Our happiness and our capacity for love is always within our reach.   

Why stay stuck in a dark place when all you need to do is ‘flip the switch’!!!
