Quoting the Dalai Lama “if we approach our choices in Life keeping in mind that what we are seeking is Happiness, it is easier to give up the things that are ultimately harmful to us, even if those things brings us momentary pleasure. The reason why it is usually so difficult to “Just say No!” is found in the word “no”, that approach is associated with a sense of rejecting something, of giving something up, of denying ourselves.
But there is a better approach: framing any decision we face by asking ourselves, “Will it bring me Happiness?”
That simple question can be a powerful tool in helping us skillfully conduct all areas of our lives, not just in the decision whether to indulge in drugs or that third piece of chocolate cake.
Approaching our daily decisions and choices with this question in mind shifts the focus from what we are denying ourselves to what we are seeking- ULTIMATE HAPPINESS
With this perspective, it’s easier to make the “right decision” because we are acting to give ourselves something, not denying or withholding something from ourselves…
an attitude of embracing life rather than rejecting it
