Psychology of Happiness

Psychology of Happiness

An act of being happy-feeling contentment in oneself is happiness. The whole world is searching for happiness knowingly or unknowingly but only some are able to know the real causes (conditions) behind it. Most of them, who have discovered the secret, have managed to share it. This act of mutual sharing has helped a lot in maintaining world peace and harmony.

While going through the path to happiness, we need to be very careful about the motivation behind it. Unethical motivation may give us a sense of instant pleasure but, in long-term, it is painful.  In William James' words, “The Lord may forgive us our sins, but the nervous system never does.” Right way of living creates a favorable environment for happiness.

Awareness of present moment is the ground where all the seeds of love, compassion, charity and enjoyment grow. “Here –and-Now” feeling rests a mind and energizes it.  A verse from a movie—Kunfu Panda, “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery but today is a gift that’s why it is called Present” beautifies the significance. Attention of the moment available helps tap all our hidden treasures.

Now comes the trinity of “Patience, Trust and Understanding” that provides the necessary fluid along with the minerals to seed- of- happiness. Patience helps to store energy, withheld, wait until all the favorable conditions are met and hear the uncomfortable. Trust assists to expand our consciousness and establishing hope deep in our hearts. Choices we make depend upon our understanding of what is right and wrong, good and bad, pleasure and pain, etc. Supporting each other these three qualities nurture every kind of happy relationship.

Let us invest our efforts to create a genuine happy environment in this ever-changing world. It is not only an expectation but a necessity.
