Everyone has the memory of happiness within them. Not a memory from the past. But a memory that is deep within, beyond objective experience, beyond the recesses of your happy thoughts or positive thoughts that come and go. It’s what sparks the great journey of each of our lives. The memory of happiness is not from your past. It is in every moment, in every present moment. This fullness, completeness, interconnectedness and inner joy is there even when you are at the deepest depths of sorrow. Once you’re able to bring that into your life, your suffering and pain does not stand alone, but there’s a timeless essence to it that is comforting.
