Are you happy in this moment?

You have a nice house, a good car, family and friends, are you happy?

What does it mean to be happy?

Do you base your happiness on material objects?

Do you think happy?

Can you look around and understand?

Can you breathe and feel that breath?

Put your hand into the air, are you aware of the space you occupy

Are you aware of the mind and thoughts that are you?

Do you know where you are going, will you know when you get there?

Do you live each day for the next day or the next week or the next month?

What are you thinking right now, where in your thoughts are you right now?

Are you happy in this moment?
