Everyone wants to try
Everyone wants to fly
Everyone wants to be there
No one knows where
But unless one finds here
One will never really be near
An endless mirage will just goad on
And bear on
That’s right with you, right here
So what gives happiness? Sometimes I find this to be the simplest question ever, at times it is a very profound question and at times a ‘trick’ question.
So what gives happiness? The question is actually wrong… It should be “who gives happiness”.
A man goes to a certain place. He needs food, transportation, shelter, clothes, electricity, entertainment avenues, other 1000 stuff to make his survival worth it.
So more people are required to specifically provide food, transport and all of the above. And these people need all the above services too.
And so a loop of requirements and providers begins – a complete circle, the diameter of which keeps on increasing since man is not a satisfied creature. He just doesn’t need a car, he prefers a better car, a bigger car… And yes, to drive the requirements loop, we have the concept of money. The more money one has, the more can his requirements be satisfied.
So more the money – more requirements fulfilled – better and bigger than others – more power – more ego, boost to self worth. Somewhere this also becomes an absolute for a sense of happiness. A triviality thus takes over existence, becomes a whole!
So people want more money, more than anything else – for a sense of self worth; led by an incorrect cross-connection with happiness.
Hmmm….what if man didn’t have any requirements! Would he be happier?
….errant mumblings, rumblings on a rather nebulous plane …s’il vous plaît excusez moi
