What’s Life About?

Your life, Beloved,
Isn’t about happiness.
Find meanings in it.

————————————————————

When seeing the definition of happiness in most of this life time, I found that many of the items in the bucket were material. Wanting to have this, to buy that, to get $, to add more travel destinations, and so on and so forth. I saw life was a storage of hoarded things.

When doing so, I mostly forgot the importance essence in what I did. Peaceful mind, wise decisions, appreciation to self for working hard, tapping shoulders for being able to control negative emotions, breathing slowly of the air in different places, and so on and so forth. I took it for granted until I found those have given me deeper serenity.

Last week there was time when I felt annoyed with something, giving me back the terrible headache I hadn’t had for so long. I drew the curtain and found that the sky was not collapsed yet then I whispered a thank-you. Gradually I felt calm again and new ideas popped up like bubbles from a fish mouth.

It takes just 3 seconds to bring back good mood.

May all beings be happy.

sometimes what you need to do is just drawing the curtain….
…. to see life isn’t about the happiness you define; it’s broader than that, it’s about how your existence is not for nothing 🪶
