What is Happiness and How to Achieve It?
Posted 8/28/07
True happiness is such a rare commodity that the whole of the world is continuously seeking it and failing to find it. All the people, who we consider to be the best in their fields, are seeking it too and failing to acquire it. The most brilliant of the scientists, the most gifted of artists, the most talented of poets and authors, the wealthiest businessmen, the most powerful rulers, the greatest achievers in any field - all of them have been striving for it all their lives and failed to have it. Why is happiness such an elusive thing? Is it that it cannot simply be achieved? Or is it that it is not where all of us have been looking for it?If you pause to give it a thought it is very easy to see that somehow we have all been missing the point. It is either that we have all been looking for happiness at the wrong places or that it is simply not possible to achieve happiness. The answer is not very easy. But it is obvious that if the whole of the humanity has been trying to find something throughout the history and failing to acquire it then something must be very wrong about the concept we have of happiness.
What is it that we consider happiness?

Um... happiness is different for everyone... I consider happiness when they are happier than they usually are! =D

I don't think happiness exists ¬_¬;;
I don't know any big ass words and I was never good at writing... so I can't really explain myself o_O...
but I believe people who say they're happy only say it because they don't know sadness
you can smile without being happy....
dot dot dot...

and.... I was thinking about what to type but now I can't remember it ^_^;;

oh wellz ¯\(°3°)/¯

shesh way to be morbid and bring the mood down of the group



anyways to be serious people put to much thought on what happiness really is. ever smile without having to force it? that is a moment of happiness. thats all happines really is. moments that make you laugh or smile or feel good about yourself. its not a lifetime event because hardships will happen during your life so of course that happiness will be diminished but just because you are sad for a moment does not mean happiness really does not exist.

Happiness is when you are feeling up on a fine hoochie coochie momma and you know she got that downstairs with the.......... yeeee. that's what happiness is. I have never posted on a forum before, but some of you kids say the stupidest shit I have ever heard? I'm talking about the people who have a definite opinion about happiness. You don't know life. It's obvious there's some sort of brain behind this universe and i'm not going to talk about my religion, but you don't understand the world. It is far too complex. And i have been happy before. happiness is given and taken away. Stop being melodramatic and get off your computer and go outside, smell the fresh air you have, go to the lake nearest you. Aren't you glad that this lake isn't filled with waste and used by you as a bath? You have a good life, no matter who you are, you just need to find out how to use it.

its different for everyone. For instance, I'm happy when I learn a new song or when make others laugh. Its not really that elusive, u just need to find what works for u and keep at it.

It's weird, I know, but i have two people whom I really look up to. My happiness is seeing them at ease (one smiles alot, but he doesn't mean it 90% of the time. the other just doesn't smile)

i think happiness is not really hard to achieve. it's just that people don't get easily satisfied with what they have,, like for example,, you want to have a new unit of cellular phone,, then time will come that you'll have but when a new unit comes out,, you'll get envious that you'll start wanting to have that new one for yourself again,,... then it becomes a cycle,, a never-ending longing for happiness....
