When you desire something or someone or even a situation or a place where you would rather be, the question is what exactly is it that you desire?
Is it really about the person, place or thing? Or is it actually more about the feeling of being happy and joyful is what you are seeking? Both of these could be completely different when it comes to desires equals to happiness. Sometimes you may think that the only condition to be happy is to acquire something or be with someone in particular or be in a certain place. Whereas it may not be so much about any of these.
It is more like you are just putting a condition presuming that this is the only way to be happy. By doing so, you create an emptiness within you that can be filled up by none other and it brings in a lot of grief rather than joy at times. How about having a more simple approach to happiness? It could be just to desire to be simply happy and joyful without specific conditions. This way you are in allowance of creating a possibility of happiness coming from all possible directions in so many different ways.
Happiness can be anything that catches your attention and lightens you up. An unexpected kind word, a sweet gesture or compliment coming from a complete stranger. Sometimes these little things could suddenly touch your heart and put a smile on your face. All of this, whether you are on the receiving end or you do it for others, can bring you happiness. Talking about places making you happy, even being in the same place can be magical when you are in appreciation and awareness of whatever is around you in the moment. Happiness is more of and Internal thing we attach it to the external.
Having a desire to be happy and joyful is healthy. It is a reminder that you are alive. But how and what makes you happy should UNCONDITIONAL…Bring out that child-like playful innocent side of you that allows whatever…whoever to bring a smile, a feeling of fulfilment and happiness to you wherever you are..
Desire for happiness? It can END right here in this very moment, if you don”t get fixated on conditions.
