Joy flows from within you

If you say that you like to do something, then that's really an illusion. Under an illusion, it seems that the joy you get from doing something, is coming from that specific activity you enjoy - but that's not true. Joy is not coming from WHAT you do, but it's flowing FROM you, INTO what you do, and from there on it keeps flowing into the world around you, beginning deep from within yourself. The false belief that joy comes from what you do is normal, but dangerous as well, because it makes you believe that joy begins from outside and is not dependant of you, yourself. After that you expect from the world that it would OFFER you joy and happiness. But the world can not offer you that. This is the reason why so many are living in constant frustration. The world is not offering them what they think they need.

"The primary cause of unhappinness is never the situation 
but your thoughts about it."
 -Eckhart Tolle
