Do you know what happiness really is?

Lena (@4649lena) 8 years, 9 months ago

Sometimes disappointment seeps into your life and distorts your view of that subject matter for the rest of your life. This is what those whom do not know better believe. For those of us who know better. We see it as just a blimp in our lives, a minuscule moment of sadness and disappointment. It happens to everyone and and everyone knows what it’s like, it’s human nature to feel such pain. It makes us feel awful, yet once we get through it we appreciate what really matters, even if only for a second. How sad is that? We only appreciate life in small moments of disappointment. Does this mean we don’t know the real meaning of happiness…how many of us are actually happy with ourselves and our lives? I know very few people.

Yeah man, happiness is having the bills caught up on your day off sipping a cup of coffee.

Happiness is the change in neurochemistry from sex, running, drumming or drawing.

Happiness is being around good company.

If you aren’t experiencing any of these, try changing what your daily routine is. Incorporate exercise if you don’t already. Incorporate stranger sexual practices if that’s what you’re missing. Try a different drug (nothing addictive I hope!). See happiness isn’t a thing of permanence. It’s something very temporary.

Do we really know what anything really is ?
We make it up.
As humans, we create these human concepts and define them ourselves, do we not ?

I experience happiness and sadness in small, alternating doses, yes.
But I am content with life (overall) at the moment.
I’m right where I’ve put myself intertwined with where the universe has put me, and the only thing that prevents me from being fully satisfied is that fact that the life I have always has the potential to improve.

Robert Anton Wilson used to say “Is, the idiocy of the word haunts me. Too many people on this planet are too damn sure of too much”

Try removing “is” from your language and replace it with “may be” and you’ll appear much smarter!

Check out a few of his books. Promethus Rising for nonfiction, The Illuminatus! Trillogy for fiction. They’re all on the net.

When 9/11 happened he said “no one kills in the name of religion if they use ‘maybe logic'”
Try taking a suicide bombing quote then replace is with maybe.
“Allah is the all powerful creator”- You’d die protecting your belief.
“Allah may be the all powerful”- No one would die for their belief (or lack there of)

Happiness is great but there’s a better situation you can get into. It a stat of invulnerability. Where nothing can harm you ever again. How? Well you relinquich control of you life. You let go of everything. You just go with the flow. You never take anything too seriously. Like you don’t associate with the things of this world because you’ve let go of them. So now whatever happens happens. The thing in your body that holds so tightly onto the things of this world is your ego. If you can get rid of the ego you’ll have come a long way in life. You’ll have disassociated yourself with the material things and circumstances of the world. And now nothing can harm you or bother you. because you’re just going with the flow. By doing that it’s a lot easier to be happy and content in life, cuz you literally will have nothing to worry about anymore. Part of that process involves talking to the higher power and getting to know God. It’s food for thought.

Happiness cannot be measured, People in the poorest places are usually more happy than the richest men on earth. Once basic needs are met, I don’t think there’s someone could get happier based on material things.

@royalty49, In a lot of the poorest places the basic needs aren’t met, yet there is a stronger community bond. In the richer places, the needs are met, without the community.

It’s a double edged sword. But yeah, I dig it. Life’s all about the company you surround yourselves with.
