In other words those things are our natural state of being, but out of ignorance—and often, ironically, in the pursuit of happiness—we create suffering for ourselves. When you sit and observe your breathing in meditation, you are no longer spending as much time and energy destroying or repressing happiness, and so you feel better at the end.

Comment on Your happiness does not depend on how you feel by Ed McGuigan https://www.wildmind.org/blogs/on-practice/happiness-does-not-depend-on-how-you-feel#comment-1096018 Tue, 16 Oct 2018 00:48:45 +0000 https://www.wildmind.org/?p=40468#comment-1096018 Very timely Bodhi. Been feeling under the weather for a while and surprised at my ability to just get on with it without getting down in the dumps. Despite feeling tired and low on energy I haven’t gotten depressed or bad tempered and I actually resolved this morning to congratulate myself on my resilience rather than beat myself up about my inability to “snap out of it”. It does seem that meditation is helping me handle the actual physical fatigue and preventing me from piling on resistance and self loathing.

But what does happiness depend on?
Thanks, Pete
