FROM THE DALAI LAMA
"A happy life consists in a mind which is free, upright, undaunted and
steadfast, beyond the influence of fear or desire." Seneca
Comment: A happy life depends upon where the mind is pointed. A mind can be pointed down
toward evil or a mind can be pointed upward toward God. Where the mind is pointed brings a
curse or blessing.
The highest enjoyment is that of being contented with ourselves. It is in order to deserve
this contentment that we are placed here on earth and endowed with liberty. -- Rousseau
Comment: The highest enjoyment is that of being in the hand of God, knowing you are in His
hand, and doing His will in your life. We are placed on earth to do God's will, not our
own. We are given freedom to see the true direction we point our heart...freedom to choose
evil or freedom to choose good.
Before we passionately desire anything which another enjoys, we should examine into the
happiness of its possessor. -- Duc de La Rochefoucauld
Comment: You can own a thing, but too often a thing will own you.
A happy life is joy in the truth. --Augustine
Comment: The truth is found only in God's Holy Word.
