People can say anything about happiness – “Money doesn’t bring happiness”, “Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get”, “Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.”, “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”, “Happiness is a warm puppy.” and so on, and so on..
Basically anything can be happiness if you choose to see it that way, but you know what? I think we are being programmed and brainwashed every day to be blind for it. Think about it, you watch a tv show and you want what they have, you watch the stars and want what they have – all materialistic and in most cases, not what you really need.
Some of us can’t even see it, that’s how early the program has been installed in us. We also don’t want to see it, because the truth is too painful.
Do we hide from it, do we ignore it or do we have our celebrity-reality-show-fake-people-false-idols-commercialism goggles on?
“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy. ” ~Guillaume Apollinaire
The world is weird.
