What is happiness?
Normally we seek happiness outside of ourselves, in all the delights and excitement of the people, places and things around us, but what kind of a happiness results from this? In Tokyo people love to go to Shibuya, Harajuka, Shinjuku at the weekend … but what do they find there?
At a meditation class at KMC Tokyo we ask people to experiment and see what they find. What happens if you spend your weekend as usual, but in addition you focus your attention on being patient, for example, or generous, or kind?
You may find yourself enjoying a quiet inner peace. Buddha explained that seeking happiness from a different source, from within our own hearts, is the key to happiness and fulfillment in our lives.
