We’re always looking for the next best thing that will make us happy, but we tend to attach conditions – a new car, the perfect job, the right life partner. Is it possible to be happy even if we never meet these conditions?

In this talk, David Magone refers to the Buddhist philosophy where joy is the natural state of mind that arises when the mind is free of attachment. Learning how to let go gives us freedom, and this freedom is truly the only condition necessary for our own happiness. Mindfulness is the key, as awareness will, over time, weaken the power of external events to influence us.

In all of your videos the sound does not match the person talking. It is extremely annoying. The digital mechanism is not working right.

Hi Casey,

I'm sorry to hear about the glitch! I just viewed the clip and everything seems to be working right.

Thanks so much for watching.
