I was contemplating why my life is so good right now, and the answer (that came to me) was that I’m in alignment with my True Self. What that means is that I’m in alignment with my values and principles. It’s a synergistic relationship between who we are, and who we truly are.
Often, people give well-meaning advice on how to be happy, but the advice seems flimsy to me. I need real guidance, not just advice. I’ve found that Guidance (with a capital G) comes from within.
It’s possible to live according to your values, but first you have to know who you truly are. The journey to self-realization is a great adventure (maybe the greatest). It’s a never ending journey, so it’s our choice how we choose to travel.
