The route to happiness is understanding Truth.
Humans often search for happiness in all the wrong places. They buy more things, expecting to be happier. They work hard for more money, expecting to be happier. They buy more fashionable clothes, expecting to feel better. They eat sugary or exotic foods expecting to find joy. They seek fame, position, status, acclaim, more friends and attention, hoping to feel better. Reaching these goals may bring a feeling of contentment and satisfaction, but the effect will be temporal, for the feeling is generated by a temporal condition. Any bright shine inevitably dims and thought begins searching once again for something more.
The cure is to find happiness where happiness really comes from. It comes from Spirit and is found in Truth!
“Happiness is spiritual, born of Truth and Love,” (Science and Health, p. 57), Mary Baker Eddy wrote.
Happiness is not a commodity one acquires. It’s a feeling one has when thought is in a spiritual place.
The greatest joy a person can experience comes from getting to know Truth.
Truth is the liberator from the limiting and constricting errors of the human mind that depress hope, darken thought and sap joy.
Truth is the true joy-giver. Get to know Truth and find real joy in your life. It’s free, and it’s all yours to enjoy to the fullest.
