Happiness takes love.
Born alone, we live in the company of strangers like ourselves, and then die alone. Driven by fear, we desire love. Every attempt to control life is motivated by fear and desire, fighting the fundamental impossibility of discovering a reason for our existence, or even for the existence of the cosmos. Many choose existential ignorance through busy-ness, numbing out or latching on to a literal interpretation of a myth based belief system and yet we all think ourselves awake and aware of what reality actually is.
May you find the peace, love and joy of being alive that are within you,
