This year we wish you a very happy New Year. So here is the secret for fully enjoying this happiness. It involves a New Year’s resolution. Here it is: “This year I am going to anchor myself to the source of happiness and let the chips of life fall as they may.”
This is a unique resolution because you are just returning happiness to the place where it come from anyway — you are not creating anything new. You are only getting to experience things as they are. Of course happiness comes from the place where you experience it. Things in the world can’t give you what they just don’t have. Conversely they can’t take away the happiness — it is innately yours.
Happiness doesn't depend on what you do either
I used to think I could only be happy after my job was done. That happiness and work with all of its pressures and deadlines were opposites. But then it clicked: Even in the midst of a high pressure job I could be at peace. I put some energy into discovering how this could be true. I noticed that no matter how fast the body and mind were moving I could still be free. That’s because whether I was busy or not, I could still be present, doing one thing at a time. This presence is the source of joy.
When you attempt to jump ahead to the future or return to the good old days it is just speculation. You are really just present anyway. So in the New Year put in some energy to breaking old habits so that you can fully enjoy this presence and abide as you truly are. Then you find that you are having a very happy New Year, always.
