Why happiness is always relative and not absolute?
Because that's what life is - a perspective; and it will NEVER be anything more than that, no matter how hard you try to change that.
You see, if you believe that right until this moment, your life has been a series of failures you're right. Your experience of your life is that of hurt, guilt, jealousy and all those things you can ponder up in your imagination.
But what if one day, you would wake up and start seeing your life from a different perspective. Maybe your life isn't a set of failures, but a set of tests, and in fact it was leading you to a point in your life that you are in right now, that is perfect and always has been. What then? You would be right too.
You see, I used to think that my life was a set of random circumstances just coming up and going and I thought I couldn't do nothing about them.
But at my "moment of clarity", which is a conscious choice of an individuals need to change and taking responsibility for his or her life in the process, I created a thought, a feeling that started a whole new ball rolling.
I didn't realize at that time the importance of that event, but is in fact one of the MOST important things you can do in your life. Another major step is losing your self-pity and self-importance, and I write about how to do it in my book which you can download for free from my website.
So my "moment of clarity" has set me off on a quest, a quest of self-discovery. So was I happy all the time after it happened? On the contrary.
You see what happens after that, you start to incorporate more and more experiences and emotions in your life that you didn't want to acknowledge or didn't want to take responsibility for before . So, all the guilt, all the traumas, all the jealousy, all the anger, has to eventually come up surface. It can't happen any other way, at least not that I know of, because before you can really start living in the Now, in the present, you have to first make peace with the past.
And how do you do that? By accepting it, by thanking it for a great friend and teacher it has been, for you are unique and you have co-created every single circumstance in your life and you are, and always has been, in the perfect place and time.
So what happens next? What is this "happiness" that everyone's after? It is one easy word.
EN-LIGHTENMENT which simply means LIGHTEN UP!
When you stop taking life so seriously you will see how funny and joyful it really is. Most people think that life is a struggle, but it's not; it's a challenge. It's a challenge to see behind appearances, to see "the bigger picture". It's easier to just put your hands in your pockets and say "I can't do this; it's too hard."
Well those who don't try never achieve anything. Edison failed 999 times, before at the 1000th time he invented the light bulb. But he might have quit many, many times before, but he didn't and thank God for that.
So ask yourself: What happiness means to me? When I'm happy the most? And start LIVING it. Follow your excitement to the best of your ability at any given moment and you will be exactly when you need to be when you need to be there and your life will become an explosion of bliss and excitement.
I promise you that.
