The Secret to Deep Happiness

“Fall in love to yourself is the first secret of happiness”, once someone told. Falling in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness.

It makes sense, especially because people who are difficult to be happy are usually hostile to themselves. There are those who are hostile to body shape, past, events, etc.

Before being picked up by danger, let’s learn to fall in love with your life. Think about this message: “Instead of rushing to look good, slow down but feel good.”

In other words, start by making life’s pace slower, then learn to “feel” each step of life.

To be precise, to feel the happy sides of every incident. As a lesson, watch closely on an angry person. Those who are burnt in anger always spoke fast.

He wanted to appear as if he was strong. Even though actually he is very weak inside. On the other hand, loving mothers usually speak in a more slow manner.

Again, feel the difference between the two. There is hidden the secret of deep happiness.

About the author

H.H. Guruji Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
