“Happiness is being content with what you have, living in freedom and liberty, having a good family life and good friends.” ~ Divyanka Tripathi; Indian actress.
The obsession for seeking is the subconscious sickness that holds mankind captive, the constant desire for more things and better conditions of living, the inexhaustible toil for more relationships and more intimate experiences; and this is precisely what expresses the emptiness people feels, the depth of their ignorance while leaning on the illusions/the lies they tell to themselves daily–i.e., “I need to be finally happy and loved and so find love in another,” “I don’t eat healthy but I complain about my health and I envy others who are healthier than me,” “I deserve a better job even though I do nothing to better myself and my opportunities,” etc.
The whole issue here is not wanting more but the obsession of wanting more, such an obsession which is born out of a very ignorant ego which does not live in the present, but it lives comparing with others, it lives dreaming in a future without actually doing anything to create better actions in the present.
All this leads to lack of acceptance of what is, as people do not enjoy the present and what they have but always want more and more, and even envy others and compare themselves to them; and subconsciously this creates their own personas, where they cannot stand to be with themselves and less to find true happiness in the moment and in the things and living conditions they have.
But he who awakens and lives in the actual moment can find daily joy to better his own experience, because the mind is the one wanting always more and obsessing, because the mind lives in the past and the future; so, when you live in the present and accept the present, and things as they are in the present, then you step away from your mind, from your ego, and live and experience from and in your heart.
“He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.” ~ Socrates.
