Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter.
If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life.
by Wu Men

We often feel happy when we achieve a goal or a desire , and attribute our happiness to our success, according to Lester Levinson, the happiness we feel is not due to achieving our goal or desire but to to fact that our mind has temporarily become quiet.

Wu Men who lived in the thirteenth century and Lester both have the same insight as have we all when we practice and become quiet.
