"Happiness is not about feeling good, Its BEING GOOD" :)
This is a talk by Richard Schoch. Its quiet an mind expander and cool -*-
- Be an Achiever of happiness ^__^v
[Unfortunately, Now we are being consumer of happiness driven by selfishness]
- The grace inside suffering is compassion :)
- The path of happiness is not avoiding suffering but finding a way thru it (like a humble being :P)
- The opposite of depression is not happiness, its functioning
- Don’t narrow your dimension of happiness to maximizing pleasure and minimizing pain. Think big, the broader u perceive, the better u understand :)
- Q: How do i know, i achieve happiness ?
- A: If you are working on it, then u are.. :)
-> Happiness is subjective, it about inside :) You have your own definition. Its way more than selfish pleasures. Define it right, for u n all :D Be what you have defined.. That is what being happy is :D
"Science is organized knowledge; Wisdom is organized life"
~Immanuel Kant ^__^v
Being an admirer of Happiness myself, i think,. this post hasn’t met the purpose of its title yet. yup, lets jump little deeper,.
* Q: From Where Happiness comes from? *
to find this, i would better seek the help of something other than science. Knowledge from empirical data give us Inspiration to know both horizontally and vertically in space-time-continuum. Its indeed FUN. :) to me, Science is a cool tool to understand stuffs, not the Understanding itself.
Rather speaking, hearing, writing, learning, meditating, one understand the Real Truth = Right and Wrong from “BEING”.
David Steindl-Rast is one such person, whos explored, learned and being the change, he wish to see in everyone.
We can see how pure, humble and divine being is he.
pls chk his vid —> we can find peace :)
David ‘s Answer:
*Happiness comes from Gratitude*
-Everyone in the world has one thing in common:
We all wanna be happy,.
-How happiness connected with gratefulness ? Is it really the happy people grateful ?
Even in the hands of misfortune, one can be deeply happy,.
So its not the happiness that makes us grateful,.
but the gratefulness, that makes us happy.
Every single moment holds the opportunity, its the gift in the gift.
Have we realized that ? for that, please:
STOP -> LOOK -> GO
> How often we stop? we miss seeing the opportunities cos we don’t stop. -> STOP - BREATHE -_-
> We should take things for granted. -> LOOK - BE GRATEFUL :)
from the opportunity you see in every moment, keep yourself step nearer to the ultimate purpose you’ve given to yourself.
> This way, Every next moment will be new, charged, which transforms you to the “Real You”. -> GO - BE HAPPY :D
We can’t have this valid happy experience always. but,
When we are grateful, we are not fearful.
When we are not fearful, we are not violent.
We have the feeling of enough.
When you are grateful, you enjoy the differences between the people,You respect everybody.
Grateful living that is the thing,
Grateful people are joyful people.
The grateful world is the happy world
We all have the opportunity by the ‘Stop-Look-Go’
The opportunity asks us to do something.
Transform the world,.
Make it a happy place :)
i didn’t feel like to analyses the accuracy and reproducibility of the information at all (or any) time. cos, the way i see is:
If a human being has the pure potential to speak such words —>
"Nothing makes us happy, when we all are happy" -David.
then, whatever He says is the truth :)
whenever we Stop and Look, we find WHERE we really wanna Go, HOW and WHY.
this is one awesome-heart, Alex Supertramp’s realization on HOW we can Go:
If you ask God to give happiness,
Will He give happiness or He give opportunity to be happy?
Think and Act :)
