It is your moral duty to be happy

It is your moral duty to be happy: however you cannot exercise this duty by clutching unrealistic beliefs, struggling with unworkable assumptions, juggling painful images, jumping to false conclusions, running with impulsive decisions or hasty judgements Sufi Hazarat Inayat Khan


Do not outsource your happiness, happiness is your own responsibility. Too often we place this job on someone else's shoulders. We expect our happiness to come as a result of a relationship or getting something rather than as a premise upon which to build one. Walk with your own happiness! Know what makes you happy and own that, do that, exercise that, choose that! 

If we truly wanted to be happy, we would not be so eager to sacrifice happiness for nonsense, jealousy, possessiveness, anger, fear or any other function of the ego.

When you find yourself in a situation where you realize that you are tolerating "nonsense", what do you do? We cannot realize true happiness when we entertain nonsense in our hearts and in our minds.  
This is a recipe for you to keep searching, tolerating, ignoring things in the quest for the very thing you are searching for. Happiness is really a choice, you must make the choice to be happy, and walk with it everywhere you go!
I am not saying you will be or ought to be walking around with a big grin on your face singling kumbaya everyday, but what will happen when you choose to not outsource your happiness is that you will know that waiting on other people, external circumstances, certain specific situations cannot be your only source of happiness as these things change, and of course you have absolutely no control over them, you have no control over it. You take responsibility for your own life!

Peace!
