When we are pursuing happiness

Sometimes we are pursuing happiness, however our methods of pursuing happiness cause problems. The sole purpose of our practices seems to be that we are embarking on the wish for our own happiness, that everything for us can be pleasant, and can be auspicious. If we use our wisdom and our awareness, we really wouldn’t be suffering so much today. People need wisdom, need compassion, they need to apply awareness. They need to leave behind this confusion, this darkness, this ignorance.
