We all have people, friends, family in our lives. These people make decisions that sometimes affect us; perhaps wasn’t their original intention, perhaps it was. Fact of the matter is that everyone will make up their own minds, our input might hold some regard to what their final decision is, then again it might not. But when it boils down to it and it’s time to make up their minds, they will make the decision in the moment. There is little to no point in giving advice in this aspect because people won’t learn unless they experience it themselves.
With the decision made these people must then deal with the outcome. Whether they believe it was the right or the wrong on. No one will ever know, though people will always wander what could have come if they made a different choice. Whether or not that outcome would be more beneficial to their end time goal which is usually happiness. Though, I don’t think people realize how easily happiness is attained, they’ve just set the bar to high they don’t even see it anymore. That thought process makes true happiness impossible.
People aren’t selfish by nature; people are people by nature their disposition is determined by the way they were raised and current environment, other people they associate with mostly. Humans are capable of amazing things, both perceived as negative and positive. The realization that there is no such thing as good or evil leaves the decisions moot and the outcome no longer matters, friends don’t matter, family doesn’t matter. Life is rendered meaningless. That’s a particularly difficult problem to overcome, the view that there is meaning. One must go one step farther and realize that they are still placing value on meaninglessness in the fact that it would be a negative. It’s nothing, it’s simply just how it is, all that matters from there on out is your perspective and knowing that there will be ups and there will be downs. Perception and environment, associates and apprentices.
I forgot the moral, but I guess after all of the stuff I said even if there was a moral… you wouldn’t fucking listen.
You mention one key point that needs to be extended. It is happiness, that is what (at the end) everybody is looking for. Lot of people are looking for “improvements” on hi/her life, but do so because makes him/her happy in the process and in the goal.
But the problem is that happiness is so natural that we forget about it. It is like having good health. It is normal to have good health (because the majority of people have good health).
Like Osho said, your natural state is “full happiness, look at the children’s, they are not looking for nothing, they are just full of happiness, and somehow we screw this state with false sources of happiness, you confuse moments of joy with happiness, the more you look for moments of joy, the more you forget about your natural happiness”
When you get any sickness, you will look for having good health again. The same should be true with happiness in your life:
– First remember that happiness is your nature
– In moments of sadness, it is because you have lost your natural estate. Do anything you have to do in order to go back to your natural estate.
– Don’t be fool by moments of joy, taste the moments of joy as much as you can OBSIOUSLY, but keep in mind that is not happiness, you are already happy from birth.
One last thing, happiness is personal thing. Unhappiness is an external factor in your life.
Yes that is a very “individual” point of view, but for me, it is that.
@thepinkmyr, I think there is good and evil in the way that you percieve things. But I also think its more positive and negative like poles and its part of your frequency.
Everything has a meaning and friends and family are very important in order to lead you in certain directions and maximize your experience. One person leads you to another to another and that third other just happens to be the person youll marry ten years from now. Who knows.
