WE try to do and get things to be happy. Go to the gym and do 200 push-ups, get a lover, get a degree, an apartment. We mistake those acquisitions for happiness but we’re missing the obvious variable: our mind. Without a happy mind, the boyfriend won’t work for happiness, the apartment won’t be good enough, the salary still needs to be higher. MEDITATION is a tool to bring the mind to a state of happiness that doesn’t depend on outer objects. 〰️ Join @heyjeechang tonight at 6:30 for her last class before winter break on how meditation can change your world. Meditation alone won’t help you. You must learn & practice how to use this complex, beautiful tool.
