"Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions."
~The Dalai Lama
I always come back to the phrase, "The Power is in the present moment."
Reflecting on this over the years,
sometimes I understand it and sometimes I don't.
But I think it is about choice,
our own choices being the only ones that can make us happy... or not.
In each given moment.
Not always an easy task, holding and pocketing the present moment,
making it shiny with our worn fingertips,
but always...leading us to our future
and pointing to our destiny.
