Everyone is searching for happiness while living in a world that is full of pain, fear and worry. Become an awakened observer. Be aware and accept the reality of the full spectrum of human emotions; however, to the best of your ability, live in balance between the extreme highs and extreme lows.
For it is within this balance that a purposeful life is lived. And when you are living a purposeful life the beauty and abundance of the world opens up and you are truly alive.
