Everyone wants to be happy, but since most people are directed by their unconscious mind, they seek a type of short lived happiness. A common type of externally conditioned happiness that is identified by: brief pleasures, material possession, self serving relationships, satisfaction and the like.
Natural happiness is independent of external circumstances. It comes from the inside our DNA and is always available when we are in our conscious mind and expressing our happiness genes. The essence of our conscious mind is centered on altruism. Not that pleasures can’t be enjoyed, but with the understanding that they are always dependent on outside conditions or people, and as such, subject to change and frequently pain.
When we understand this we are much closer to moving toward natural happiness that is the joy that is unconditional; it is always there for the taking, simply by expressing your spiritual genes.
