Who Wants To Be Happy?

Let’s admit it, everyone wants to be happy. And there are different ways by which we can be happy. For instance, someone can be a Superman to be happy, and if you want to be super-duper happy you can be Rajnikant.

All right, let’s get serious, what I want to talk about is, how do you become happy by being you. And is it at all possible for you to be happy by being you?

It is, absolutely it is, take my word for it. You can be a lonely person and yet be happy. You may not have all the riches in the world and yet be happy. You may have just 300 followers on this blog and still you can be as happier as someone who has 50,000 followers. Now, there are people who have everything but are unhappy, so they seek ways to attain happiness and end their miseries.

So, happiness is a state of our mind that can be influenced by our environment; likewise our mind can influence the environment so that we can be happy. A flower though beautiful today will ultimately fade, so does happiness and so does sadness. But when the flower blooms does it not bring a glow to our faces? Does it not give us pleasure?  And when it fades, does it not sadden us? When we accomplish something that we have been meaning to, it gives us immense joy, on the other hand failure makes us cry. Happiness and sadness are but momentary feelings.

By our very nature we cannot be happy all the time; neither can we be sad all the time; the universe is designed in such a way, and how often our emotions fluctuate, we cannot do anything about it.

I think there are a few criteria that we have to follow to be happy (and I am saying this from my own experience).

  1. Be in the right place: yes, this is very important. We can only be unhappy by being somewhere we are compelled to be. We have to break free from all compulsions and settle down in a surrounding suitable for us, a friendly atmosphere, so to say.
  2. The second thing that matters are the people you are with. Keep away from those who are the reason for your sadness. This is a vast world; you can definitely find someone who would share genuine sympathetic understanding with you.
  3. As long as we derive happiness by doing something, no matter how tiny it may be, we should keep on doing it (if you become happy by killing someone, I beg you, abandon such a source of happiness!).

All right, so that’s all I have to say. The three points sum up everything I guess, but surely there can be many more factors that we have to keep in mind to be happy. To be happy or not to be happy then becomes a question of whether you really want to be happy or not.

And She Moved On…

HARK!
HARK! (Photo credit: MEL810)

Once strangers we were
Soon no strangeness remained
At times, at a distance you were, then so near
And now, aches my heart, oh look! It is maimed.

Blame must I my eye, it sees things changing
Yet a little closer to you I wish to be
Should we, once again, in the rain go dancing?
But oh! Now you care little for me.

Hark, like you, I shall try to move on!
What are you to me anyway, when to you I’m none?
But the residue of my true feelings can never diminish
However, regret I shall not, no… not a thing!
Or be immobile with grief, or loss my sense of being a being
In your thoughts’ sake, I shall but write my verses with great relish.

SCREW ANGER

An upsurge of emotion that makes me burn like fire

The foolishness, the fallacy of being egoist, uncontrollable ire

All sin I commit and still think that I’m always right

Nothing stops me, not any fright, not a thing on earth; and I never give up the fight

The color that accompanies it is always red

The devil takes hold of me, upsets me and often makes me very sad

Stupidity, absurdity, idiocy was never a part of me

But with anger, argumentative and stiff my opinions and stern my face, I see.

My intention was or is never to be rude

But oh, anger makes me a real brute.

From rationality, things change so fast and I move on to irrationality,

What I was and what it has made me- so blunt. Ah, such uncontrollable bestiality!

The undesired, unwanted retaliation, ignorance and deadly revenge

Gives me a tough time, all of a sudden my blood pressure increases and threatens my life to derange

What could have been better, never was

Friends dared never come by my side thus

Not a word of pleasantry came out of my mouth, peace was almost forgotten,

Now, with all despise and contempt, I’m living, almost dead. Wish I was never begotten!
