“The happiness we seek cannot be found through grasping and trying to hold onto things.  It cannot be found through getting uptight about wanting things to go in the direction we think will bring us happiness.  We are always taking hold of the wrong end of the stick.  The point is that the happiness we seek is already here.  And it will be found through relaxation and letting go, rather than through struggle.        Pema Chodron
