Spirit and I have talked about happiness many times over the years. Although they and I firmly believe we were meant to be happy in this lifetime, no matter what our circumstances, I know so few truly happy people. Often that’s because they look for happiness where they will never find it.

Today I want to share with you some of my favorite happiness quotations:

  • Remember happiness doesn’t depend upon who you are or what you have; it depends solely on what you think. ~ Dale Carnegie
  • You don’t need to search for inner happiness. It is already there within the silence of your being. You only need to stop searching and simply be. ~ Deepak Chopra
  • If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. ~ Mother Teresa
  • People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be. ~ Abraham Lincoln

  • Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions. ~ Dalai Lama
  • You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. ~ Albert Camus
  • Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know. ~ Ernest Hemingway

  • Happiness is a warm puppy. ~ Charles M. Schulz
  • A woman asked me recently “What are the blocks to my happiness?” I said “The belief that you have blocks.” ~ Wayne Dyer

  • No medicine cures what happiness cannot. ~ Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Here are a few happiness quotations from my spirit guides:

  • Happiness is not a place. Happiness is not your relationships, your jobs, your money, your friends or family. Happiness is not anything or anyone outside you.

  • The only place you can be happy is right here and now, in this present moment. Outside of this present moment happiness does not exist.

  • See your human lives from your higher selves’ perspective. Make that choice. Then you will find joy. Then, and only then, will you find happiness.

  • Happiness is a choice you can freely make. Unhappiness is a choice you can freely make.
