|| Is happiness a set of clear instructions?
|| For computer programmers, perhaps . . .
Keep your core operating system simple.
Maintain constant curiosity.
Accept emotions as they are each moment:
don't take any emotion too seriously.
Remember you're dead already &
by some miracle happen to be breathing now.
Relish the unexpected:
it's happening constantly.
Take the time to notice sunsets.
Closely observe the sky and clouds.
If no friends are nearby,
speak to trees, animals, or plants –
consciousness extends from galaxies to ants.
If hardships fill your heart
focus on making others happy –
observe how they define joy.
Imagine you're loved more deeply than you can imagine:
strange as it seems, you actually are.
Be certain part of you is already awakened –
& don't fret about the rest.
