Letters 466: The Pursuit of Happines IV

Lucius Annaeus Seneca once said:

"True happiness is to enjoy the present without anxious dependence upon the future."


To whom I haven't met yet,

          For me, no amount of cash can buy a true happiness. People are perpetually seeking happiness, but few have been able to find it. This is perhaps because we tend to look for happiness in things that we believe will bring us happiness, but in actuality do not. 

           Happiness is a flash that lights up our lives. It is indefinable emotion that comes & goes. True happiness is the inner sense of freedom, peace, security and satisfaction we feel when we decide to live our life fully; to give & make every moment count. 

           Happiness is more than just living a special moment, it is what we feel as a result of how we see life. It's a state of consciousness that inspires us, gives us balance & generates a pleasure within us that acts out with a smiling face.

             Dear you, the real secret of happy people is that they have the ability to add & multiply, rather than divide or subtract. It's a transformation from the seemingly negative into the positive, or of the impossible to the possible.

                  Most of us are addicted to negative thoughts & feelings that we have had for years. These turn into chronic habits that have a chemical effect on our bodies that end up ruining our emotional life. It is therefore vital to manage the thoughts that cause these changes, and let go of the negativism game. Believing that external changes will automatically bring one happiness is a very dangerous trap that actually prevents us from being happy.

             Why should we only be happy "IF" we get a new car, job, baby, marriage, divorce, new relationship, home, or the ideal body? If we are not happy now, none of these other things will make us happy unless we stop the addiction to negativity.

             Let's stop postponing our happiness & start being consciously happy now hummingbird.


p/s

There will be time when I am acting as cold as ice, there will be a time when I am quite busy with my work, but one thing for sure, you will always be the source of my happiness. 


Always,

The Half Moon Serenades.
