Truth about Happiness

So often in life we are steeped in the past or future forgetting the very essence of who we are or where are as unique life forms -the present moment.

Choose to live fully.. NOW

It is understandable. We live a life awaiting for certain things to make us happy. Maybe it’s the mortgage being paid off; maybe its that new car, maybe once I get this physique I will be happy. I get it, these things may bring happiness, but I assure you it will only be temporary.

When you live a life waiting to be happy, you will never truly live. Everything you do will be based on the belief that happiness is a future goal to be attained, instead of realising it can be sought, right here, right now.

Many of us get caught up in the trap of believing the future holds the life we seek, and by doing so we unconsciously sabotage the beauty of the life around us right now. Often we chip away at our goals day by day, until finally we achieve the desired outcome. But guess what? We are still unhappy, there is a void, something is missing. We have been partaking in an illusion.

On the other hand there are those that wait. They believe some miracle will come their way and they will be happy. As much as I spread my love and hope towards these people, I can simply only describe this as ‘Wishful thinking’. Guys + Girls, if you continue to wait, nothing will happen, you have to take action.

Enjoying the process

At the end of the day, its not about what we get from something, it is who we become. There was once a story of a wise man who was asked to mentor a young man and assist him in climbing up a mountain to seek vast treasures. The wise man reluctantly agreed. They both toiled up the mountain for many days and months, learning numerous things along the way. The men finally reached the top. The young man looked around, there appeared to be nothing. He then turned to the wise fellow with a confused look on his face and queried whether he knew where the treasure was? The wise man insantly handed the young man a stone.

Here is your treasure” He said.

The young man was confused. He had climbed all this way and toiled for many months, to get a, stone?!

So you mean I have travelled all this way, to get a small stone? This isn’t worth anything!” The Young man cried.

The wise man then looking at the individual straight in the eye said to him

” In life, it is not about the destination, it is about the journey”

This is what I wanted my whole article to be about, this quote right here. Who we become far outweighs what we get, and brings us much happiness.

The evolution into becoming what we want is truly the reason why we unertake a certain task, the destination of that journey is like the cherry, on top of the icing, on the cake. Read more – Tips to connect to true self
