For a long time I was chasing or looking for happiness outside - in friends, achieving goals, buying things. But I always felt something missing. There was also a disatisfaction in my heart. Finally I realised that happiness is not only a state of mind but it is also within you not outside you. I have learnt to keep a quiet mind and quiet tongue and, I find more peace within me. It has made me an observant person. I am able to understand people better. I feel that I have learnt a great lesson in learning to be a quiet person with quiet mind.
