The key to unlocking the secret to happiness is to recognize that true happiness is not locked up in a hidden vault. Happiness is at the heart of our very nature. Everything we need we already have as pure potential within our mind. The problem is that our awareness permits the experience of thought and emotion which are like clouds that obscure the clear sky. Happiness lies in the recognition of the pure, unobscured sky. Meditation techniques give us the ability to notice the clouds while seeing the sky. “The meaning of meditation”, he teaches “is to recognize our own pure inner nature and allow our own possibility, quality, and well being to manifest. It’s not like you try to change and then become a better person. It looks like you have changed your life, but it is just recognition.” (hosted by Michael Toms)
