Deepak Chopra and Intent

Question:
If my desire is for happiness, then how does one remain detached from the outcome? Seems almost silly…


Answer:
An abiding state of happiness is not the product of desire. Real happiness is a state of Being, not something you do or achieve. That state of Being is your own inner joy that expresses the exuberance and wonder of being alive at this moment. It is not dependent upon your mood, or outer circumstances, it is your own self-luminous essence made conscious of itself. That Self is your silent witness, it is the one inside that is detached from sensory experience and at the same time enjoys that experience in complete freedom. It is silly, ….but in a good way.
Love,
Deepak
