What it is
Many of you won’t understand. But, instead of just pursuing, have you really thought about what being happy really is??
-Being happy is not about the things you have. Because things can be exciting and fulfilling at first, but this won’t last and won’t change how you feel about yourself.
-Being happy is not about holding certain beliefs and following the path set by others. Because this does not make you unique, it just makes you another cog in the machine.
-Being happy is not about the right moment, the right people, the right place. Because all these are egoistical demands that your mind makes in its anxiety, in its emptiness, in its frustration now.
We all seek happiness. And that’s the problem, in seeking it. When you seek something, your mind attaches itself to a vision, to a goal, to an influence of what happiness should mean for you.
This process of seeking makes you frustrated, anxious, even less capable than others. So, happiness has nothing to do with seeking; but everything to do with being. And what’s being??
Being is discovering yourself. But we cannot discover ourselves if the most important thing for us is position in society, or money, or traveling, or family, or relationships. Because, although great things, such things are seeking what has been already established out there for you, stealing your own uniqueness.
