What is happiness? What are we wishing for exactly? It’s different for everyone and usually depends on the illusions we have conjured up over the years, from our upbringing and from fairy tales!
When we look for happiness in the future or believe that if the past was different we would be happier, then we will not find it.
“Happiness is when your life fulfills your needs.”
If happiness fulfills our needs, then what are our needs? To find our needs we need to discover who we are and understand our past beliefs. Sometimes we need to strip everything back or lose everything to find this.
Happiness for me is “acceptance” of myself in this moment. Good, bad or ugly, when I truly accept my state of being in this present situation (extremely difficult at times!) I find I can be content and happy, when I resist it and want something different, I’m unhappy.
What if my needs are not being met? and Is this really a need or a desire? and is this desire an illusion? Is this need evolving and we just need to be patient to receive it in the right time? It’s good to question ourselves in stillness and see what arises in between these questions because in the stillness, the truth will be revealed.
True happiness creates positive energy and this creates, good health, like-minded people and happier experiences day-to-day.
What makes you happy? It’s worth exploring what happiness means for you because when you find it, you will want to share it and in sharing it, others will be inspired too!
