The Search Is Doomed

It takes tremendous maturity to see that the search for happiness is doomed from the start, because the very act of seeking is a subtle form of despair. And it requires tremendous valor to give up this search, even for a moment.

But even a single moment without seeking is a precious diamond, a sparkling explosion of stillness that annihilates the future and past. Something far more wonderful than happiness dawns the instant we give up the search.
