Whenever you are not happy, not joyful, it is because you have decided not to be.
This is not a conscious decision to not be happy, but is rather a choosing of thoughts and feelings that make happiness impossible.
If you seek for happiness where it cannot be found, you will not be happy.
You need not search for happiness, it is not here among the things of this world.
Like all that is true, happiness simply is.
To be truly happy is to be happy for no reason.
Being not of this world, happiness does not depend on conditions or circumstances.
You need only decide to be as you truly are and happiness will rush to greet you.
The Holy Spirit will guide you in the ways of happiness, for He needs you to be a happy learner.
