Still Searching for Happiness?

Still Searching for Happiness?

You find it right within yourself.
You are the center and the source.
It’s in your heart and soul.
It’s always been with you.
It was never lost.
It’s not the result
of gambling games to be played.
It’s not made up of winnings
from lottery tickets bought.
This is a fact, of course.
It’s right there…within your thoughts.
It’s made manifest
by good deeds done.
It’s the joy of victory
over life’s hard battles won!
It’s on your mind.
It’s your strength of character
to be peaceful, gentle, charitable,
gregarious, generous,
cheerful, joyful, and kind!
Thus, happiness has always been
right within your reach.
No need to be mystified
No need to wonder.
Just look within.
You and the happiness you seek,
have always been kin!

    Seven Deadly Sins

    Wealth without work
    Pleasure without conscience
    Science without humanity
    Knowledge without character
    Politics without principle
    Commerce without morality
    Worship without sacrifice.

    Mahatma Gandhi

    Promise Yourself

    To be so strong that nothing
    can disturb your peace of mind.
    To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
    to every person you meet.

    To make all your friends feel
    that there is something in them
    To look at the sunny side of everything
    and make your optimism come true.

    To think only the best, to work only for the best,
    and to expect only the best.
    To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
    as you are about your own.

    To forget the mistakes of the past
    and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
    To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
    and give every living creature you meet a smile.

    To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
    that you have no time to criticize others.
    To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
    and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

    To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
    not in loud words but great deeds.
    To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
    so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

    What is happiness? by Paulo Coelho on November 9, 2012

    This is a question that has not bothered me for a long time, precisely because I don’t know how to answer it.

    Some people seem to be happy: they just do not think about it. Others make plans: “I’m going to have a husband, a home, two children, and a house in the country”. While this keeps them occupied, they are like bulls looking for the bullfighter: they don’t think, they just keep moving forward. They manage to get their car – sometimes even a Ferrari – and they think that the meaning of life lies there, so they never ask the question. Yet, despite all that, their eyes betray a sadness that they themselves are quite unaware of.

    I don’t know if everyone is unhappy. I do know that people are always busy: working overtime, looking after the kids, the husband, the career, the university degree, what to do tomorrow, what they need to buy, whatever it is they need to have in order not to feel inferior, and so on.

    Few people have ever told me: “I’m unhappy”. Most say: “I’m fine, I’ve managed to get all I ever wanted”.

    So then I ask: “What makes you happy?”

    They answer: “I have everything that a person can dream of – a family, a home, work, good health”.

    I insist: “So the meaning of life is work, the family, children who grow up and leave you, a wife or husband who will become more like a friend than a true love-mate. And one day the work will come to an end. What will you do when that happens?”

    They answer: there is no answer. They change the subject.
