The Secret to Happiness

But why project happiness to the future? A possible future which may not even come true or may lead to a huge disillusion. We live now so wouldn’t it make sense to be happy now as well? To me happiness is about being content with what I have now. Being able to enjoy every moment. Trying to find happiness in the future is an illusion. It's not about the big things. It’s the little, normal, things that matter. It's about listening to birds singing or enjoying the sun shining on my face.

Eckhart Tolle

If you have not heard of Eckhart Tolle before and would meet him for the first time, your first impression would probably be that of a very ordinary, simple man. You may even find him a bit boring when you hear him speak. But don't judge a book by it's cover as this man is one of the most remarkable (spiritual) teachers of today.
