Happy for no reason


Being happy for no reason is the definition of happiness. How to achieve happiness? The first step is to ask ourselves that question. The second phase is to look for happiness inside and not outside of our being. For that, we have to make the shift, the awakening through learning lessons. We are repeating this again and again but is never too much. We have to learn forgiveness, acceptance, compassion through love, the primordial feeling. All these lessons will bring peace and happiness to ourselves. When we want to learn all these lessons, we must remove our egos which is the most challenging part of all because ego will tell us that it cannot go. Letting go of the ego is a process that is happening when we stop fighting it. Through meditation, we let go of our thoughts, and that is the way. Ego loves all the thinking and interpolation of our thinking to the extent that we bring lies into our minds and we believe them. When we learn to let go, we let go of the ego. We become the universe and not the center of the universe as ego tells us.
How about other people? Can we be happy even surrounded by unhappy people? We can be happy because true happiness is within us. That may sound selfish but is far from it.
We can be happy today that we bought a new pair of shoes and be unhappy tomorrow that the shoes got dirty. We may be happy today when our partners told us “I love you” and unhappy tomorrow when they said, “I hate you”.
So, it is no way in the world I can always be happy. In the world, yes, we said it, because the world does not give us supreme happiness. The only real state of happiness is happening when we look inside ourselves. We hear so many people talking about inner peace, inner self but we refuse to get to the true meaning of that. Once we achieve inner peace, we come to a profound realization that we should not be affected by the surrounding, including events, people, things. It is not like we become insensitive, but we let go. Do an introspection and find the way to our inner core, find the answer to “who we are”. Once we get there, we become free of unhappiness; we become free.
