In order to understand how we feel happy, we have to understand how we think. There are three different ways to deal with everything around us. The first way: Desire. Bigger TV, we have to get that show or we have to take a picture of this meal and post it on Instagram but if you rethink and look at any major product you bought , any success you had, or language or the photo you posted, you will surely be happy for a while but soon you will be back In your painstaking search, every time you will find yourself back to the same level of happiness you were, but this time with less money in your wallet and more wrinkles on your face, then it is safe to say that happiness does not lie in the idea of having. The second method: rejection From the moment we wake up our brain subconsciously starts looking for things around us to reject Oh I'm so tired but I have to go to work Oh it's so cold I don't want to leave my bed.
We also reject the others: he is a very strange person! Why can't this accountant do his job? We reject ourselves: Why do I look like this? Why am I such a failure? And again: we can say that happiness does not lie in this aspect either. The third method: wandering, which is what happens when we encounter a task, and let’s say in parentheses that it is like going to work or waiting at the doctor’s room, then we tend to wander and everything becomes somewhat blurry if not completely as if you put a black and white filter on your eyes and enter your mind Then your stillness and your mind will either get lost in a past you regret or a future filled with worrying about things that might have gone wrong, doesn't seem like a great place to be.
These three ways make up 99% more than the way the average person goes about their life day in and day out No wonder they are not happy! So how do I become happy? In fact, there is a fourth way to deal with things and it is to try it once in a lifetime and the happiness is really in that. It's the way you act when you visit the Grand Canyon for the first time in your life, it's the feeling an astronaut describes when he sees Earth from outer space, it's the life you had when you were younger and you were able to spend hours just staring at insects Images and this method is called: wakefulness. Think of it as the opposite of wandering. You awaken and become actively aware of everything in front of you. What things look like, how things move, how they smell and taste, their properties and nothing else. This means that there is no space for desire and no space for rejection. , and you certainly do not forget, your focus is all on the thing in itself or the event in front of you right now there is no judgment, there is simply space for you to accept that whole thing.
When you act towards things and events with vigilance , happiness follows and it lasts forever because learning how to focus on what is in front of you makes room for happiness in your life, and the only way to become more alert and aware in your actions and reactions as a daily basis is by practicing meditation I am sure now that there are many of you who You watch and think, 'Oh, my God, it's just illogical gossip.
