‘’Very little is needed to make a happy life, it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking’’- Marcus Aurelius
Well, Is being happy so easy, is it natural state or an impending thought. My last article ‘Your Date with Success’ struck a chord with many but I left to ponder again as some people are successful yet not happy, So what it takes to be happy?
We are said to be ‘living’ life only when each day we experience happiness, love and not boredom, anxiety, and sense of aimlessness. Each one of us constantly faces challenges at home, relations, work, peers, and society. Today, being Happy with oneself, being in love with your company is on par with mastery of the world. A sense of well-being, tranquility & inner peace is no less than feeling the top of the world.
I work with People and I work on myself. Most of the people today are playing hide and seek with themselves, far away from their real being. They feel Happiness is something that comes by itself like rain…But is it?
Then why time and again,
We find ourselves resolving inner conflict, clinging to emotional crutches we have created, a constant nagging feeling of creepy thoughts and self-limiting beliefs ultimately finding ourselves bottled up with mental turmoil. Hence, we are all popping happy pills and soothing up with self-help books and allied modules.
The crude reality, Each one of us is holding back our vulnerabilities to maintain the social image of a confident and happy person. Heart to Heart Conversations have become shallow, rare and superficial & Most hearts are filled with empty defenses. Most People can’t even talk to their close members openly for the fear of being judged or rejected.
Above all Social Media Image makes sure Weakness is not glorified.
No Doubt, life has become hectic, complicated at times. Frankly, in midst of numerous social obligations, status-quo, misery and self-pity, you will not know where you are heading.
So, Are you too in a Trap?
Are you a soul, a weary, en-hungered & not knowing where to turn, vaguely struggling to live each day with a purpose?Do you twirl in a cycle of perceptual anxiety?Is your mind a society’s bin where anybody who passes by stuff something to your head?
So Am I saying, One has to stop always waiting for something to happen to be happy; to step off the ‘hedonistic treadmill’ that constant hunger for new acquisitions and experiences, which is seductive but which leaves people ultimately dissatisfied & hovering for more.
Buddies, life is beautiful but only if you really want it to be that way.We deserve every good thing that you are capable of acquiring by virtue of self-belief, talent, and ability.Once you understand the way life really works, you began to see amazing potential around, Mundane Things do not bother you anymore.Let’s stop analyzing life, Just live it.From this day forward make a conscious effort to be happy yourself, the Divinity should crawl behind you all the time.It’s just that when the flower blossoms, the flower does not go in search of the bee, likewise happiness is infectious…Come more often to happy Souls.
The peak of emotion will lead you ultimately to yourself, to your center and help you take off to space.Well, seek not to find who you are, but to determine who you want to be.Life is not a process of discovery but process of creation.The very source of creation, happiness is throbbing within you.
Grow, heal, move forward.
