All happiness that’s dependent on others is bound to disappear sooner or later. It’s temporary, it’s momentary, it’s illusory. Only that joy is yours which wells up within your own being. Hence Buddha says: DELIGHT IN MEDITATION, delight IN SOLITUDE. Aloneness is the joy of being just yourself. It’s being joyous with yourself, it’s enjoying your own company. There are very few who enjoy their own company.
And it’s a very strange world: nobody enjoys his company and everybody wants others to enjoy his company!
