happiness is a momentary balance: the key to true happiness

"Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it,
the more it will elude you,
but if you turn your attention to other things,
it will come and sit softly on your shoulder"
- Thoreau

There are many definitions of happiness. Sometimes said to be the state of well-being characterized by emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. Whatever the definition is, we all want to be happy. It is one of the greatest thirst of human beings.

Happiness is a momentary balance. When everything in our life is going smoothly and is well balanced we have happiness. When we are faced with conflicts and challenges, we are unhappy. We cannot find permanent happiness in this world because of the dual nature of this world. Happiness and sadness must co-exist. Sometimes we are happy, sometimes we are not. Life is a cycle. It is an ongoing process. Like there is a day and night, so there will always be happiness and sadness, co-existing together.

It proves that happiness through dependency cannot be lasting and yet, when we are independent, it is so hard to be happy too because we find ourself to be lonely. If happiness cannot be found through depending to someone or something as well as we are independent of dependency, why at all should we seek happiness?

We should not seek happiness. As long as we seek happiness, we will never be happy. This is because happiness is not something apart from us. We are happiness itself. Happiness is a quality of soul. That is why when you are seeking happiness through something it does not last because you are a soul and already have happiness. What we need to do is realize this inherent happiness within us and manifest it more in our daily life. That is the key to find true happiness. When you find it, you will always be happy.

So remember, if you are not happy today, the law of nature suggest, it will end soon. Have patience in the meantime. You can endure pain through love. When you are sad or feeling pain, spend time with those who needs more love than you do. When you give happiness to others like this, happiness is bound to come back to you. This is the universal law of life. What you give you get back. So start giving love and happiness today for it to come back to you.
