What is the Happiness?

Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor

Everything passes in life: things, people, ideas, etc. Those who have money and those who have none also pass, and nobody knows genuine happiness.

Many people try to escape from themselves by taking drugs or alcohol. In fact, not only do they fail to escape but worse, they get trapped in the hell of vice.

When an addict resolves to change his life, the friends that he associated with when involved with alcohol, marijuana or l.s.d., disappear as if by magic.

Happiness is not achieved by running away from the "Myself", from the "Self"; instead it would be interesting to confront oneself boldly, to observe the "I", to study it in order to discover the causes of suffering. When we discover the real cause of so much misery and bitterness, then obviously, we can do something about it...

If one manages to finish with the "Myself", with "My Getting Drunk", with "My Vices", with "My Affections" which are so painful in my heart, with those worries that are ravaging my brains and making me ill, etc, etc; clearly, then, that which is timeless comes, that which is beyond the body, affections and the mind, that which is truly unknown to the understanding and is called: HAPPINESS!.
Unquestionably, while the consciousness remains bottled in the "MYSELF", in the"SELF", it can in no way know real happiness.

Happiness has a flavour that the "SELF", the "MYSELF", has never ever known.
