THE QUEST OF HAPPINESS

Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book ‘The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari’ by Robin Sharma.

Today I pray, “Dear God, In the quest for pure satisfaction, how do we defend our parting of ways with that which no longer serves our best interests?”

Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage:

“Happiness is a journey, not a destination.”

This is so nice to know at some point in life. Twenties, thirties, seventies… In whatever decade of one’s life this settles, it is a very pleasant pure-satisfaction to discover. Yes, there is no one destination point to happiness. No final arrival point on earth. I love hearing a variety of answers to the question, “What would you do if you won the 1+ billion dollar lottery?”
Here are a few: “I would pay off my student loans.” “I would pay for my kids’ college educations.” “I would buy a house on a lake.” “I would ask my dad to buy me a Lamborghini.” “I would start a charitable organization that is meaningful to me.” “I would move to a different house.” “I would move to Amsterdam.” Anaïs Nin said it comfortably when she wrote, “The dream was always running ahead of me. To catch up, to live for a moment in unison, was the miracle.” May we each possess such miracles every day.
