I just found a great new quote:

Why are you unhappy?
Because 99.9% of everything you think,
And everything you do,
Is for your self,
And there isn't one.

The most profound insight I've ever had was during a walking meditation.

All these thoughts about work and stress and inadequacy and problems with a younger colleague came bubbling to the surface. Problems, problems, and more problems. Stress, stress, and more stress. What was I supposed to do?

I still remember, I was looking out the window of the building we were walking, across the street at the street light. And all the chatter faded away until there was only one voice left, which clearly said "It's not about you"

And it wasn't about me. It's almost never about me. Ego inevitably gets in the way of most things.

Don't pursue happiness. Go for satisfaction. It's al right to feel other emotions than just one.
