    A lot of things have happened in the… 


    A lot of things have happened in the past few months. No matter whatever sort of desire we have whenever it is fulfilled or completed we are back to square one. Nothing changes in any deeper way when the desire is filled. Basic thing which I am sensing right now is we love filling ourselves with anything so as not fill empty from inside. And thus arises desire. A state to have something or want something with us, in us, for us in our grip or our property in the future is desire. Where does this desire arises is a very tricky and complex part.

    There is a sense of mystery in my existence. I really don’t want to sound mystical but the basic thing is whatever desires I have and whatever gets fulfilled, something around me or inside me wont change. That state or being-ness in me or around me is never bothered with desires, in reality it never desires. What can it desire. Because that mysterious thing in me or around me is beyond description and never can come under the hold of my known existence. Right now while I am writing I am not all in that exact state. Because I can either be in it and just be in and can never discuss or explain what that is. But for me to write, read, think about it is getting away from it. But then it doesn’t mean I will stop doing anything and just be in it. Because whatever I am doing externally that mysterious thing is in me and around me. Otherwise how can I even exist?

    Basically everything confines to one thing. Whatever is ‘out’ there exists only in relationship to me or ‘in’ me. Something ‘in’ me makes it possible to see, hear, feel, about the ‘out’ world. Whatever happened in year 1700-1800 exists only because either I have heard, read about it. But in reality what exists for me is the current frame or right now moment in my room with my computer and this blog!

    Anyways I could keep on going writing. Thanks for reading this I really don’t know why I am abruptly ending this post…..

    Happiness. When I speak this word out of my mouth it makes a sound. This word is actually a sound. H-a-p-p-i-n-e-s-s. 

    Now I have been hearing since my childhood this word called ‘Happiness’. When I was a kid If I got something which I wanted then a sensation occurred inside me which people around me told me to call it as ‘happiness’ if they didn’t told me directly then maybe I learned it from somewhere that this specific sensation created inside me is ‘Happiness’. Looking in the dictionary for its meaning I found the following : State of being happy, State of contentment. Good! But really? Is it my state of contentment?

    Contentment is something as state of satisfaction. Good! But really? I am contented when I am satisfied? SO my next question is when do I get satisfied or contented? Well I get satisfied when I ‘get’ what I want. So what really do I want? If I start making a list of things that I want then it might go on and on. Material things, lots of useless stuff too will be included in the list! But if I think honestly then NOT EVERYTHING IS REQUIRED FOR MY SATISFACTION. Isn’t it? What If the things that I have in my list are the one’s which people around me wanted me to have? The things which are available in the market are required by me because they want me to have there product! Isn’t it? 

    Cutting the story short if I cut down the list to some basic requirement on a day-to-day basis then? Thing’s which come in my mind are as follow’s : Food, Shelter and Clothing! Damn it! 3 things! Other than that if I require anything else than maybe it would be people wanting me to have that thing. I am not at all disregarding the usage of some electronic devices for personal daily use and that stuff. No.Not at all. But really if I want only some basic stuff for my day to living than I would be satisfied. Is it? Is this the case?

    Coming back to happiness. So in short if I get my basic necessities then I might become happy but really If I have the things which I want and I already have them then it would not matter whether I am happy or not. In the end the culture, the conditioning, people around us and everything around us has implanted in our mind that ‘The sensation which occurs in the human body is defined as happiness’. But what if I don’t define and translate that sensation at all. 

    Anyways we come back to my first sentence in this post. It is really only a sound made by our vocal cord in our body. But as we have been studying the language(any language) we have been attaching a meaning to that sound or word(happiness in this case) to point to the sensation inside us what we have pre-decided to call ‘happiness’. 

    Thank you for your time in reading this post. In the next post I really don’t know what will I write but it will be something related to this sort of topics and our mind’s working and the culture and surrounding effects on us! 

    Have a nice day and be happy!
