I could sum up my life in four words: I have enjoyed living.” – Ernest Hemingway
8 things to be Happy... Read ME :o) →
Click to read Ryan O’Connell’s article. Finally a young fresh mind that understands the tools we need to be happy souls Spoiler alert: tip number 8- lots of sex ;o)
Me: I’m going in search of the adventure of being alive.
Brain: And it’s complicated: why am I not looking for happiness when everyone has taught me that happiness is the only goal worth pursuing?
Thoughts: Why am i going to risk taking a path that no one else is taking? After all, what is happiness?
World: Love, they tell me.
Me: But love doesn’t bring and never has brought happiness.
Brain: On the contrary, its a constant state of anxiety, a battlefield; its sleepless nights, asking ourselves all the time if we’re doing the right thing. Real love is composed of ecstacy and agony.
World: All right then, peace.
Thoughts: If we look at the Mother, she’s never at peace. The winter does battle with the summer, the sun and d moon never meet, the tiger chases the man, who’s afraid of the dog, who chases the cat, who chases the mouse, who frightens the man.
Brain: Money brings happiness. Fine. In that case, everyone who earns enough to have a high standard of living would be able to stop work. But then they’re more troubled than ever, as if they were afraid of losing everything.
Thoughts: Money attracts money, that’s true. Poverty might bring unhappiness, but money wont necessarily bring happiness. I spent a lot of my life looking for happiness, now what i want is joy.
Me: Joy is like sex – it begins and ends. I want pleasure. I want to be contended, but happiness? I no longer fall into that trap.
by Paulo Coelho: ( “The Witch of Portobello” )
It’s very easy to hate everything. I tried the more difficult path: to love.– Paulo Coelho
