The real reason why we sometimes experience a lack of real, deep lasting happiness in our lives is dependency. We are taught to make our happiness dependent on some event, condition, person, object etc.
This is why we keep delaying our happiness until things are just right in our life. We think we will be happy in the future and then wonder why we are not happy now. But life is never just right, and the future never comes – there is only now!
And that’s why, in order to be happy, we must make our happiness a decision and not a dependency. This may seem slightly difficult in the beginning, because we have just spent our life being dependent on acquiring something
or someone, or seeing the result we desired, or wanting some pain to go away, before we allow ourselves to be happy.
Reflection: What is your happiness mostly dependent on right now? Imagine your self without the above and that you are quite content without the above, how do you feel?
Action: What can you do in your mind tomorrow to change your state of being from dependency to freedom from dependency?
Analysis our life from student’s life à bachelor life à married life à children…their education…their job…their marriage…and their children…to balance all these we all run after the material world…etc.etc. it is never ending … and we always forget that we are getting older.
During these struggles, most of us forget to live ourselves and some of us even visualize that we will live ourselves after retirement?… but whether that day will come?? GOD only Knows !!!
