Of course I want to be happy. Well that’s not exactly correct. I wish to cultivate the right causes and conditions that, when, if they come together, are able to induce the more positive mind states.
However if at any specific time, those causes and conditions that come together momentarily, suddenly fall apart, or wobble a bit. Then I would accept that the positive mind states might be replaced momentarily by the negative mind states.
I also do solemnly swear that on being confronted by a negative mind state, owing to the unstable nature of all causes and conditions.
I will not hold on to these negative mind states but will fully accept them as they arise, and if lucky, when they leave, be replaced by the more appealing positive mind states again.
