For to live your true life is not just a matter of asserting your personal will in the world. It is not dependent on your level of outer ambition and worldly success, though these may indeed be an expression of the underground flare that your true life comes from. No, the life we are speaking of here cannot be gauged by where you are on the career ladder, or by how much money you have in the bank. I am speaking of the life of the soul. And that life can be felt when you stand without excuse or apology in the outer world by the deepest truth you know inside.
In essence, happiness is who we are. It is natural result of claiming the life that is ours. Yet there is no effort in this claiming; no striving to get things right, to be at the helm of one’s life like a captain in a storm. It is rather a saying Yes! To what is already so. To who we already are. What is happening when you are happy ,is you.
