Zen Pencil Illustration quoting Henry David Thoreau, an American author, poet, philosopher, polymath, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, historian, and leading transcendentalist. His words remind us that we can’t force happiness, happiness just is. When we frantically chase happiness like mad-men or mad-women it will continually elude us. Happiness is a by-product of living right and always comes when it has to. You can’t chase it, you have to create it. We must busy ourselves doing things we love, and doing it with passion, and happiness will float into our lives like a butterfly. Keep envisioning your happiness, trust yourself, trust your process, and like always keep growing, in the light direction.
