Moment

The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why it is called the present.

I’ve been thinking a lot about happiness lately. I couldn’t help noticing that usually happiness in momentary. Usually, we all are waiting for something.  To find person to share life with, to have children, to build career, for child first words, first steps, to find a job of our dreams, to buy a house, to travel, to retire and many many other things. And it looks like real life is passing by while we are waiting. Because life is today. Life is now. It’s exactly this moment. Maybe tomorrow will bring what we expect, maybe not. And who knows what is better after all. Can we see in perspective if it’s good or bad if things didn’t work out expected way?

  1. very true… it just a moment, moment we seek happiness and either find it or not…

      As for me, it looks like we don’t need to seek for it. It should be inside independently of what happens. It’s presence in current moment and enjoying of being. Because it’s not an emotion, but state of soul.

      • yes, Whiteee, you’re right about that it should be inside, but aren’t there circumstances that really alter the state of soul(in this case happiness)?
        But mostly, it is somehing that doesn’t depend on anything else, something you have somewhere inside, it is what you are.

    Ideally, circumstances shouldn’t alter the state. Because you never know if what happened is good thing or bad. I mean everything that seems on the surface to be a bad thing may be a good in disguise, and vice-versa.

    I love the writing and the response above. Yes, it’s right that we don’t know if the things happening are good/bad since it will make better sense later. All we need to do is to enjoy the moment. Whatever comes comes…
    Be mindful, and aware of everything around. Self-knowledge is the key.
