We can only manage to smile when things go our way.

Living Dhamma by Ajahn Chah

We may know of these things, but we don’t really know if we don’t know within our own minds.

Buddhism doesn’t enter our heart.

If our mind is good and virtuous, it is happy.

There’s a smile in our heart.

But most of us can hardly find time to smile, can we?

We can only manage to smile when things go our way.

Most people’s happiness depends on having things go to their liking.

They have to have everybody in the world say only pleasant things.

Is that how you find happiness?

Is it possible to have everybody in the world say only pleasant things?

If that’s how it is, when will you ever find happiness?
