Look beyond the pursuit of happiness

Pursuit of happiness? There is no such thing as the pursuit of happiness. Chasing it will result in it running away just as fast, and the pursuer will be running away from existing happiness that was where they were in the first place.
Allowing oneself to move through life at a pace which matches the natural flow, gives existing sources of satisfaction the opportunity to attach to you. Simply immersing in the present allows even more pleasure to come chasing you all by itself. Then you will have happiness pursuing you.

A person cannot make the future into something specific, nor can he live on the fleeting memories of the past.  The present holds all the satisfaction you need if you let it. Do today right and tomorrow will be just fine.
