How to Be Happy-How to... Lectures
How to be happy? The best way to start, says Goswami Kriyananda, is to know what you want out of life. If you think your being happy is unfair to others, remember that showing that you, a human, can be happy will inspire other humans to be happy as well.
Mystics talk about the harmony of the universe: It is as it is and as it ought to be. But we often think that some other way is the correct way, and we keep changing our minds. Simply ask for happiness, without naming it. Attachment is a problem, so detach. As the yogi would say, God is life and all life is sacred. What happens too you externally is really not the problem. Your thoughts and feelings are important because they build your memory track from lifetime to lifetime, and this affects your future ability to be happy. So, start now to establish your happiness.
