Occasionally Osel Hita shares his thoughts and experiences on his Facebook page. In this update, he discusses the meaning of happiness.
Many times i ask myself, "What is happiness?" Why is it so important? But you know... it is a bit of a metaphor. If it existed as we imagine, it would be a state of mind, right? Being continuously happy ... is that possible for small potatoes like ourselves? It reminds me a bit of the carrot on a stick held by a guy on the donkey, and the poor animal goes after the carrot thinking it will reach it soon. Happiness as we know it, comes to us when we are satisfied with our actions, it is like a present from life that rewards us because we've worked hard for that satisfaction, and it lasts the duration of that sensation. But what next? What I see more possible for us to achieve is: Non-unhappiness. It can be continuous, it can spread and create harmony. Stable and easier to reach.. And once we find Non-unhapiness as a state of mind, we can start seeing happiness as a more possible equation. Emaho!!
