We don’t have to regard meditating as a somber activity; we can think of it as sitting there and being cheerful... [B]ecause our moods change constantly, we might not understand that cheerfulness is in fact an inherent quality of mind. Within the meditative tradition, cheerfulness is considered to be the natural, harmonious, and wholesome expression of our truest self.
--Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
