Dear brothers and sisters,
Giving God all our happiness, we are happy.
Because the true happiness is God. God is Ông Trời, Buddha, Bodhisattva, Jesus, Thiên Chúa…
A lot of happiness around us. Happiness can be our lover, family and friends. Happiness can be our job, diploma, honor, money and social status. Happiness can also be food, dog, cat, flower, tree, sea, mountain… Happiness can also be political regime and civilization in the land we live.
A lot of happiness around us. However, such happiness is not true.
It is not the true happiness because it comes and goes. It only stands by us some time and then it goes away. It doesn’t stay with us forever.
So when we think that it is the true happiness, then when happiness comes, we are joyful; when happiness goes, we are unhappy. We are joyful today and sorrowful tomorrow. Thus all our life is not peaceful.
A lot of happiness around us. However, such happiness is not true. The true happiness is God.
When we live with our true happiness, though there is a lot of happiness around us, and though happiness comes and goes, we are peaceful.
God gives us happiness because God wants us to be happy with our self and happy with God. After enjoying something, give happiness back to God and enjoy our true happiness. Thus we are happy and peaceful.
So enjoy all happiness God gives you. Then immediately, give all happiness back to God. Thus all our life is at peace fully.
Have a peace day.
