Happiness or Unhappiness – Focus on Quality

“All happiness or unhappiness solely depends upon the quality of the object to which we are attached by love.” – Baruch Spinoza

I recall a story from a conference, ‘The size of the man is determined by the size of the things that make him mad.’ The speaker automatically thought of a little white ball he chased around a golf course.

The truth is we can be so unhappy about the smallest of things, which are determining our happiness or loss thereof.

When we shift our gaze from what makes unhappy we need to choose carefully what makes us happy.

I thought about my story, I went to write three times, but I was diverted. With what? I’ll reveal in time.

Today’s photo is from the Swans Nest on the Avon River. The rains last week rose the river levels to lap the side of the nest. Was she able to keep her eggs warm enough? Will their be little cygnets soon?
