Happiness is Love. Full Stop.

“The seventy-five years and twenty million dollars expended on the Grant Study points to a straightforward five-word conclusion: Happiness is love. Full stop.” George Vaillant

This Harvard Study seems to uncover what Mindfulness practices have been teaching all along – Happiness is Love. Full Stop.

Yet, Mindfulness teachings go a step further to remind me that Love (loving kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity) are already within me, as who I truly am.

When I can remember to feel my breath and take the arduous, humbling and joyful journey of one inch back to the ground beneath my feet, I sometimes get a glimpse of this Love. And somehow in that glimpse, I can see clearly for a moment that yes, of course, Love is all there is.
