There is only one way to feel peaceful and happy, and that is to let go of any thought that isn’t peaceful or happy. Sounds obvious, but how often do you judge yourself or someone else in a day? How often do you go back over that argument you had with someone because you *had* to get your point across because you were right and they were wrong? How often have you felt let down by something or someone and allowed yourself to wallow in self-pity for too long?
