In order to find happiness and contentment, we must find inner peace and calm.
The mind creates both upheavals of the world and freedom from them.
No matter how difficult the challenges we are facing, the key to our happiness is how our mind perceives them.
Once we realize that our thoughts are empty,
our mind no longer has the power to control us.
~Most people believe the mind to be a mirror, more or less accurately reflecting the world outside them, not realizing on the contrary that the mind is itself the principal element of creation.
