To Find Reasons to Be Happy is to Increase Happiness

To find reasons to be happy is to increase happiness. When the mind searches for reasons to be sad and sorrowful, even situations with no great significance are seen with a vision of negativity. So there is constantly an expression of words and actions that reflect the need for sympathy and reassurance. On the other hand, when there is the search for happiness, then everything is positive giving happiness. When we are happy, we start perceiving everything with that vision. It is like wearing coloured glasses. Whatever colour our glasses are, the whole world is coloured with it. We are no longer able to perceive and recognize negativity and we are able to remain happy with everything.

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu
