As you discover how to remain present in daily life, you will find the ability to rejoice deeply in simple things.
This creates a confidence in you that there is no shortage of happiness to be found here and now. All you must do is become willing to be present to enjoy it.
Ordinarily we are very attached to our happiness. We want to cling to it and to devour it endlessly. But that is the innate suffering that comes with happiness: it will go. Happiness in one form or another never endures forever. More often than not it is extremely temporary.
And then we are left feeling abandoned.
Happiness is not determined by the way life happens to you. It is determined by the way you happen to life.
Being present allows you to find joy in expressing your divine nature through simple activities: setting a table, arranging flowers, or taking out the trash.
Be mindful of what activities you depend on to feel joyful. Try finding enjoyment in being yourself in the moment, doing things to express that divine stuff out of which you have been made. What you do matters significantly less than how you do it.
You are basic goodness, buddha nature, divinity, whatever you want to call it. Use momentary activities as a means of coming in touch with that, with You.
Namaste, sangha. :)
