Episode 68 — The End of Desire
This week's new episode discusses how happiness is synonymous with the end of desire.
Surrender all desires to your awareness of them—including your desire for happiness itself. If there is any senses of personal lack or wanting, whatsoever, happiness will continue to be obscured by the ego's false projections.
Inner peace can only be realized when you are absolutely content in the present moment, within yourself, as yourself, regardless of whatever appears to be happening around you.
You must embrace whatever is, gracefully. In doing so, happiness will be realized as being ever-present.
In truth, it is only the mind that keeps it hidden. So ignore the mind's grasping for desires and happiness will reveal itself as being the natural reflection of your true Self.
Thanks for listening, I hope you enjoy the episode.
