Daily Meditation:

Live your life in happiness, even though those around you lead lives which are unhealthy, and wish to spread their illness to you. Be Happiness itself. - Buddha
Happy happy joy joy. Be happiness. Be the ball. This is a difficult one. after the melancholy of yesterday happiness is like a great oasis in the middle of the dessert of emotional vastness. Happiness is a retreat, a place to go inside for healing and peace. The Oja Cliente of the soul. We do not have to accept today everything coming from other people, that is when someone is in pain and suffering we do not have to take on all those things personally. Those things from another person are theirs. Empathy, care, listening, compassion yes; codependant, unhealthy, caretaking, fixing no. So as we do not contaminate ourselfs with the emotional garbage of the other. We are happiness.

I like this one because it is so true and sometimes so difficult to do. But by radiating joy and happiness, perhaps we can help those who are having problems just by brightening their day. And in doing so, that joy is put back on us, giving us satisfaction because we did something to help another, which will sometimes help to lessen our own pain or at least take the focus off of it.
