logged on to the office infoweb today…and right there flashed today’s quote for the day:-
Happiness is not a matter of events, it depends on the tides of mind- Alice Meynell
that got me thinking….
what is happiness? and what is that makes the human mind happy?
too many replies surfacing in my head…so asked others what makes them happy….
chocolates… hubby… kids… books…sunrise… sleep… food… friends… family…
but the resounding essence of all the answers was revolving around the SELF(a very dear friend’s definition of SELF.. Supreme Evocation of Life Force)
pop up (oh there comes the questioning mind!)
what is self? or should i ask who is this ‘self’…:)
why do we give so much importance to ‘self’ ?
how does manage this ‘self’ manage to control the happiness meter of our lives….
the duality in the nature of an individual arises when one alienates the Self with the other Self…( am I rambling…)
the ‘self’ is the EGO…the other ‘real self’ is YOU (hmm ..interesting)
in the quest to identify the ‘real self’ we walk through the journey ,striving to fulfill the never-ending demands of the ‘self’.
the search for happiness goes on…be it the ‘self’ or the ‘real self’
