Happiness is a state of mind where you feel pleasant, blissful and calm. Most of us look for happiness outside. We look for happiness in money, in people around, in materialistic things…however happiness is something that is within. Happiness found outside is temporary.
Happiness is nothing but choices that we make in our personal life. Above all, when we look within and talk with our inner being, we realize that there is a higher self within us which is above everything else. This inner being does not require money or other things to be happy. In fact the smallest things in our daily life can also bring us happiness. A book, a smiling child, few good words and priceless things like these can make you very happy. Unfortunately we are living in a world that lays a lot of importance on materialistic wealth. This however may make you rich but it may not make you happy. Happiness lies within us and we all must feel very happy with our inner self first. If we make a pact to be at peace with our inner self, they outer misery will also not affect our happiness inside.
Life is surely not a joyride and it has its ups and downs. We all go through our moments of sadness and difficult times. This is when inner peace and happiness helps us combat with such difficult times. When we are happy from within no worries can bother us, nothing can stress us and we feel full of positive energy that helps us deal with tuff times. As human beings we all desire utmost happiness but desire is the root course of misery. Happiness is a state where we do not desire. It is a feeling within our mind and heart that we are content and we value our precious life such that we do not want to waste any time in negative emotions like anger, frustration and sadness.
Many who have found inner happiness have said that they feel immense amount of positive energy within themselves. They feel light and easy. It is said that practicing meditation can help you find inner happiness. Do things that make you feel happy from within. Generosity is one such expression where most of them feel very happy. When you help the underprivileged and see the smiles on their faces, you feel happy. This is true happiness.
To constantly be in a state of happiness, your work should be aligned with your inner being. You must know your self completely and must be aware of your thoughts, feelings and actions. Find out what thoughts make you happy and what thoughts and feelings bring about negative emotions. Surround your self with people who remain happy and spread positivity around. Avoid being in company with people who constantly crib and are negative in their approach. Happiness lies within and one must get in touch with it to feel what it really is to be happy. No money, no materialistic things, no worldly matters can bring happiness the way happiness is within!
