STOP AND THINK – Genuine happiness consists in those spiritual qualities of love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness and so on. (The 14th Dalai Lama, Thai Buddhist spiritual leader)

Many people think that happiness is to be found in activity of some kind. Or, it’s the result of having things that fill your life and home with beauty, comfort, or security. In reality, of course, we soon discover that happiness is not found in material things or the temporary pleasure they might give us. Happiness is a state of a mind that is settled in God.

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4).
