There is no place for happiness (internal). Empty your cup and clean it. It cannot be filed otherwise. Others can give you pleasure, but never happiness. There is no east or west in sorrow and fear. The problem is universal – suffering and the ending of suffering. The cause of suffering is dependence and independence is the remedy.
