Don’t you see that it is your very search for happiness that makes you feel miserable?
Try the other way: indifferent to pain and pleasure,
neither seeking, nor refusing,
give all your attention to the level on which ‘I am’ is timelessly present.
Soon you will realize that peace and happiness are in your very nature
and it is only seeking them through some particular channels that disturbs.
Avoid the disturbance, that is all.
To seek there is no need; you would not seek what you already have.
You yourself are God, the Supreme Reality.
To begin with, trust me, trust the teacher.
It enables you to make the first step -
and then your trust is justified by your own experience.
