What is happiness?

This is my favorite phrase...."The beauty of life does not depend on how happy you are but on how happy others can be because of you". I believe the first person on planet earth, who applied this principle was no other than Adam. When Eve was created for him, he appeased her in every way. She was the only companion and a little different from him in feature. The more he made her happy, the more happier Adam was. In love and sex, I guessed Adam was also trying his level best to satisfy his only partner. In turn Eve gave her most intimate performance to her master who was totally over joyed. End result...the world explored with billion of people. And that is why, you and me are here now...I write and you read.


Happiness is to see others happy. Look at yourself...when you make love...were you trying to satisfy your partner or you prefer to stay aloof and just let your partner to satisfy you!! In all cases, when a couple is in love, they try to make each other happy when they make love. The beauty is...when you see your partner being so overly excited because of your effort and action, spontaneously you would also get delighted. This could be the basic application of happiness started from Adam & Eve. However the sorrowful part of life is...we only apply this procedure in sex making and not in other aspects of living. Most of the time, we tend to be selfish and reserve, forgetting that happiness is actually seeing others happy because of our action. The above is my personal perception only.

I salute to this statement - "Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace." - Albert Schweitzer

Thank you for posting this. I used to always think that happiness was making myself happy and if others were hurt or ignored in the process, it didn't matter cause I was happy. I am starting to learn what happiness truly means.

Hi Robert,

Happiness is when you can feel those around you are happy....yet we need to start being happy first before making others happy...its somewhat like a hen and egg concept heeee..

regards,
RL
