Health and Well-Being are the two things that most individuals will tell you they desire most. Request a parent what most people desire most for their child and they will almost always say, “I actually do not care, as long as they are healthy and happy.” Occasionally people say they need love, success or wealth, but when asked why, they then say because these matters would make them happy and think for a minute.
Generally well-being above all else is desired by folks but only when they believe that it is endangered. Individuals seldom consider health when they are young, healthy, disease and pain free.
The single most sought after life encounter is happiness.
If you made a list of the things you wanted to enhance in your life and then added notes alongside each thing, detailing the period of time and effort you were placing into each one, you would be greatly surprised at the lack of logic and or dedication you’re applying to increasing or preserving happiness. You might have happiness as the thing you most desire but your notes may reveal you spend 50 hours per week at your career, 10 hours housekeeping and 20 hours watching T.V. Next to the word ‘Happiness’ you may find, ’10 minutes’ or more likely, ‘No time at all’.
Have you ever even stopped to think of what it is that makes you joyful? Most of us just consider happiness to be an arbitrary action that gets us and disappears all too soon.
Happiness has fascinated me my whole life, I constantly seek it and play with this. I’m getting better at prolonging it and quicker at understanding it.
Actually, sometimes I just sit and focus on well-being until, “I bring it on”.
It takes occasionally imagination, occasionally some memory and a small attention. Practise and focus have resulted in my skill to simply determine to be happy and I remind myself to do this frequently.
Most people are emotionally in a continuous state of being before or future most of the time. In happiness, we pull our focus into the present moment to fully experience this feeling that is great. (Pain also has this ability.) I mention this, as I know that the most essential demand for happiness will be to practise, ‘Living in the present moment’.
