The Buddha, on How to be Happy. (We all need a little Advice).

Trungpa Rinpoche often talked about how the state of happiness is not our goal; that’s the goal of ego. We reach for pleasure, we avoid pain: that’s samsara. Want genuine happiness? You’re looking for a more fundamental state of being, the ocean beneath the waves.

Sadness can be sweet, too, after all.
