The Four Conditions of Happiness

posted by Guy Finley
How do you move from a life of endless problems to a life of endless possibilities? Learn to cultivate the four conditions of happiness: clear eyes, a quiet mind, a sense of beauty, and an open heart.

The best way to get started up this royal road to inner riches begins with a simple idea. Don’t try to be good. Just prefer the good; then, do the best you can to act the good. Want what is true in the moment more than you want the familiarity of false ideas that betray. And how do you make this choice?
Remember that the spiritually sleeping mind would rather have familiarity than freshness… which makes it incumbent upon you to be present to this pattern, and to choose in favor of what’s new. You have to want to be in the moment of the light of your understanding. When some dark thought or feeling comes calling, remember your wish to no longer give this darkness a home in your heart and mind. Just recognize that this new action needs to be done, not how it will be done. It is the work of the light, of truth, to shatter the illusion that any dark state has the right to rule over you.

    (Pls don’t mind) Thanks….”Clear eyes, a quiet mind, a sense of beauty and an open mind” I’ve no words to explain how much I love this…I’ve been believing on this theory frm my childhood..u r really awesome!!!! Name of life, name of strength…
    “…the work of the light, of truth” what a coincidence..true lover of God means true lover of truth.Only truth is light, truth never depends on anything or anybody, truth is all in all, if we never aware of truth we’ll suffer, truth will never suffer.What is the truth? Thats we’ve to realize. Truth comes like thunder and gone. Truth is nothing but a light, a power, supreme power..any true lover of truth should fight against any type of darkness with the weapons of love and patience, because darkness(Satanism) is itself against of love and true love is light. Darkness always afraid of light but light never afraid of darkness, just like angel never afraid of devil but devil always afraid of angel.(Pls never mind……… grateful to you)

If we ever hope to taste some measure of true

The Music of the Mind
The music of the mind -- its harmony, or not, is expressed by the order of its thoughts through which it is instrumented. Confusion is dissonance; clarity is flow.
