Happiness: an ode

Happy

Happiness is not a static state—an entity to be captured. Rather, it is an experience that, like emptiness, is always available and accessible. Being in process is an attitude—an appreciation of this simple truth and of the reality that your life will be forever unfolding and your future always unknown.

Appreciating the simple truth, but yet, somehow, always looking for shortcuts.
