Having looked at all my friends’ feelings about life, I decide to conduct some research to know what happiness is.
I typed the question “what is happiness” in Google, and the first several entries popped out are:
|state of well-being characterized by emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy
wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn – Definition in context
Well, I guess a dictionary’s explanation of the word will not help me find out the truth of life.
The next one is:
A person with a vast heart is happy.
Such a person lives each day with a broad and embracing spirit.
A person with a strong will is happy.
Such a person can confidently enjoy life, never defeated by suffering.
A person with a profound spirit is happy.
Such a person can savor life’s depths
while creating meaning and value that will last for eternity.
A person with a pure mind is happy.
Such a person is always surrounded by refreshing breezes of joy.
Enlightening. Then here comes the next:
The article asks us to remove all the negative feelings, and then we will be left with happiness. That’s sounds easy enough, but how many of us can really do that, even it’s only for one moment? We’re always burdened with worries about uncertainties, or have to shoulder our responsibilities. But I guess mediation will help. At least set aside some time everyday, just to close your eyes and to think about the beautiful things in your life. Refill yourself, and get enough energy to carry on.
I don’t think there’s a need to see the other webpages. Happiness is defined and achieved by one self. Thinking about the suffering of Japanese people from the tsunami, happiness is such a luxury.
