why so happy

with one comment

There is so much emphasis on happiness in this world.  Happiness supposedly is the universally preferable state of being.  I used to use my musings and meditations to cultivate happiness, but then I realized:  A happy mind is an oblivious mind.  Bliss is ignorant.  The happy mind is not as focused on what needs to be done as the solemn mind.  The happy mind is not as attentive to the problems in the human condition as the melancholic mind.  The happy mind does not care.  The happy mind does not want to care.  It is nice to be happy, but an effective mind is not in a constant state of bliss.

  1. Being ecstatic or happy is not a stable state. It’s just a brief spike.
    Excessive emotion leaves us spent.

    I prefer a stable sense of tranquility and overall well-being that conserves the energy and encourages focus. A dash of somberness actually sharpens my faculties.

    The happiness that industrial culture celebrates is not really happiness; it’s just another sort of pleasure addiction used to sell things.
