Snippet Thoughts: Happiness
Every one of us wants to be happy, always be happy! Isn’t it? How better we understood happiness? Sharing a few insights about happiness I found on some deep digging into its path, from where it comes and where it goes? How it forms? Etc
Happiness always Starts from inside
Happiness is just a reflection of our own thoughts what we sent inside our soul and get back (or) we send out side and get back. It starts from our soul, goes around and comes back. I detail the process as we go by.
Nobody can give you happiness
As I told earlier, happiness is something what we feel after doing something to others and how we perceive when someone does something to us.
Take a case if you are in a good mood and your friend comes to you and crack a joke, you will enjoy it and feel happy. The same friend if comes and would have cracked the same joke when you are angry for some reason, definitely you will not feel happy for the joke. In both cases the person and the activity remains the same but your thoughts / mood coverts it as happiness or annoying. It has nothing to do with your friend.
It’s always you who select the happiness
In any given situation the person who decides to be happy or not is only YOU, our level of acceptance to anything that happens around decides the result. If we can accept everything positive then it will result in happiness.
What is this Positive thought has to do with happiness?
Now there we can understand the happiness has everything to do within us and nothing to the world or others. So what happens? Most of the spiritual and psychological experts have talked about Positive energy / thoughts. What are they?
Anger, love, hate, depression, anxiety, forgiveness, revenge, honesty, lies, murder, helping, cruel, kind, compassion, empathy, adamant, egoist, hero, villain, helping, extremist, addiction….
Just you classify the above mentioned words to positive and negative list. Done? Obviously you will get the same as everyone. No one will put a murder and cruel in positive list.
Do you know why I have asked you to make this list? There exists something called universal moral. Irrespective of religion, race, personal values and everything we humans are naturally abide by some logical / rational justice. If I have asked you to kill a person who committed a crime which affected your life so much, will you take it positive or negative? Your answer will be so personal based on your value system / situation but not universal truth. That’s why I shot those words in random and tried to convince your belief in the existence of right and wrong or positive and negative as universal truth / moral.
Now my job is done. Think once as deep as you can, whenever you cultivate a negative thought / feeling when someone does something to you, or you do something to others your mind will also reflect a negative reaction in the end which is obviously not happy.
Let me compress every detailing I have done before: Happiness is just your reaction to your thoughts what you have let out or your feelings to what you have perceived. It has nothing to do with others externally. So be happy 🙂
A case to apply this logic : Say, You are claiming a friend whom you thought true to you has betrayed you and you are sad, depressed about it. You may be angry at him too. This is not happiness. Obvious! List the feelings and actions involved in this Your thought of him being true : It’s your thoughts, but not his reality. He has shown his reality, Now what? Either he would have done it knowing your thoughts (trust) on him or without knowing it. In either case he has done with what he wanted to do. Accept or reject him as he is.You may claim: Its only you who claim you are not happy because of your feelings had hurt you. You had let your feeling to hurt but not him. He may be wrong if he knowingly did that, but that’s his nature which you don’t know. Now you knew it. So be aware.Betrayed, Sad, depressed, angry – Apply the universal moral perspective here all are negative elements so feeling like that never gives happiness.What can you do now? Take the opposite of all those Trust, Be happy, enthusiastic, be kind everything will turn around towards happiness.
This logic won’t work over night and but possible when we try to realize the logical truth in the words here.
Have a Happy life 🙂
