I smiled at a very pretty girl the other day and she smiled right back. That kind of happy is as old as humanity.
Trying to do something nice for others every day or making someone laugh can be infectious in a good way. It spreads happiness to people you'll never
even meet. Finding a job that helps you do both is a fine ambition.
I'm probably 25% short of happiness, but I can live with that and it's a lot closer than most people get...
Happiness can be fleeting. The moment we step into Happiness people will be drawn in like moths to the flame because everyone is seeking Happiness.
Inadvertently, these people extinguish or use-up our Happiness in their futile attempts at grasping it themselves. It doesn't mean they are overall
bad people they just cannot help themselves and they haven't learned what Happiness is.
There are many formulas for Happiness. We discover them from the moment we are born. Each time our Happiness has passed we immediately begin to find
any way possible at bringing it back again, so we devise new and exciting forms of Happiness. Sometimes it is the same formula over and over again
until it no longer works, each time diminishing in its loving embrace, then we discard it and move onward in our never-ending quest.
Eventually, if we are lucky, something wells up inside of us and we realize we are Happiness, we are after all an expression of Life itself seeking
Balance. So we no longer see Happiness outside of ourselves and we begin to draw on the Happiness that resides within us. Then we begin to spread
the Happiness outward to anyone who will receive it.
Sadly, however, this is when Evil steps up, not to obtain the Happiness, but to destroy it at any cost. So it is very crucial that those that have
Happiness within, and are prepared to deliver Happiness to others, that they should surround themselves with other Happy people. Together they create
a shield against those that wish to destroy Happiness.
From my understanding the Balance of Happiness is failing with each passing moment. These are the times when it might be wise to hold onto any part
of Happiness deep within you. Protect it and nurture it, because one day Happiness will finally rebound and spread Across the Universe.
happiness to me is a genuine smile, sincere eyes, thoughtful conversation, empathy, humor, and people who are open and receptive to speculative
interpretations of reality, and those who are willing to share what it is they know.
but happiness encompasses more than just these things, and more often than not true happiness is not defined by the words appropriatley. words are an
institution born of the biological obligations, but can evolve to be more. words do not contain all aspects of what happiness is.
WorkOUT stress, before you attempt to work out life.
This was my route to happiness, i stopped trying to understand each experience, and instead started trying to notice how i felt about it, allowing my
intuition to flourish, and "flow" along with any thoughts that occur, positive or negative.. i learnt to be resilient.
As in ~ stop fearing the consequences of stress, choose instead to feel inspired by the consequences of compassion, this will save you much
heart ache, and much head ache.
As for the stamina required to maintain a positive state of being, remember this:
Be like a postage stamp; stick it till you get there.
It will all come naturally to you -fromwithinyou- soon enough. And again DON'T allow stress to hinder your progression forward. The grounding will
always come from below the mind, and the mind will always be supported by what is essential to Your natural background (joy).
