HAPPINESS?  Revised 4thDec2020
Maybe it's true, the fact that Happiness is Useless. Because every time we win / succeed...
And we actually get the "Who & What" which we "had not", and which we really wished for, waited for & desired.
Once We've got THAT, whatever/whoever "it/she/he" may be, ah HAPPINESS begins to change as it quickly moves on to a NEW "Who & What" which we have "Not".
And the whole theatre play begins again, there is so much to hate and so little to love on the absurd mess of pursuing the New and of course, having to leave behind and to part with the Old.
Happiness either does not really exist or it does not like to stay long enough anywhere chiefly once it is found and thought to be felt.
Ah if only we could hold Happiness longer with us once we find and get Her.
For whatever it is worth, my relationship with Her is long-distance, alike as lightning & thunder, the sun just shines and we've never really met.
But we've felt each other, we've experienced each other.
Once you HAVE somebody or something, their VALUE, their MEANING, they seem to dissipate and to end.
At the other hand, if you HAVE NOT somebody or something, their VALUE, their Meaning are always high and very important for us and in our lives.
That it is, until we get to have whether that somebody or something.
Because, then it goes from “Interesting, Valuable and Meaningful” to “Boring, Without Much Value and it ends up at Meaningless!
Observing such a fact, it seems to me, that maybe Happiness is, in fact, USELESS!
And maybe this is as good as it gets for me and for you and for us all.
Because Happiness, similar to our own Species, to ourselves, She is made of eternal and infinite Changes.
Evolution is Her truest Gift every time that she leaves us. And She does it in order to allow us all to be and to keep it real and true, to grow, to evolve.

NOTES:

Maybe it is the process and not its reward when it comes to HAPPINESS.

It is true, we all can remember HAPPY MOMENTS in our lives, moments when we just received those dear Yule Gifts that we had long wished as children, or that first graduation from school, or that first kiss, first night of love with another dear human being... Oh my, there can be so many of those First Moments with different Events, with different (Meaningful) People, etc...

The fight of all life for most of us all, is "to remain/to stay relevant", and also, to pay for for own own keep... And then, to try hard to enjoy the ride from cradle to grave.

There is a plenty of waiting and we all know there will be also lots of unwelcome things and unwelcome people.

However the show always goes on and we manage to get to another day, another night and well, it is the pursuance of Happiness, even though once we find HER within the tangibles of a thing or of a person, or of an event, or of a situation, it always changes, it always shifts sooner or later and always to another place, to another thing, to another person, to another situation, etc.

We get to do it all over again and again until our own show ends.

And it is O.K. as long as We keep it honest, real and true to our own selves!

And to be quite honest, it is just the way it is.

*

If/when we are and remain Real & True to Our own Selves, we in fact make decisions that reflect our true will, our own selves and the real "what and who" which we really and truly wish, desire and want.

Therefore, when we do get that "something" or that "somebody", or that "event", or that "situation", well, it is always in fact True Happiness, which is always in Harmony with our True will, and equally in peaceful Harmony with our own honesty to our own selves and also to our own natural wishes and desires in life.

And surely, outward circumstances have no power over that type & level of Happiness.

Because, it abides in us and stays with us as it happens, however the elemental event thereof, the thing, the person, or whatever it may be, it is temporary!

Because it all will pass, the feeling will pass, much similar to when we get, or when we receive a much desired Yule Gift, chiefly as when children...

The feeling changes, the Gift, whatever it may happen to be, it  shifts its level of relevance in our hearts and minds.

True Happiness can always be experienced, chiefly with the Mastery of our own Selves which is always required in order TO BE, and also, TO REMAIN "Honest and true" to our own selves and to our own Nature, and of course, also to our True will, our wishes and desires.

But as I wrote before, Happiness never stays too long anywhere.

And people, and things, events, situations, they all have to be more like the Future and the Past.

Because they both, they always keep on "Re-inventing Themselves", in order to offer a New and Fresh version of this ever-changing Now and Here.

And so that We All can again keep on Finding our Truest Will, our infinite and eternal Nature which is made of Changes, and all of that as if it were the first time.

Me? I feel that I am quite peaceful with Myself, however in order to do that, I try hard to become as one with the Changes which Happiness is made of.

Happiness is free, is infinite, and is eternal...

Eternal? But doesn't it seem Contradictory?

No! Happiness is eternal, it is We who must grow up and evolve in order to keep up with Her in the requirements of our own Nature, our Life, our True will, our Wishes and Dreams!

It is not upon Her the burden or the gift, the cursing or the blessing of Evolution.

That it is always upon us all. And we own, and we are also responsible for that.

Although similar to us all and everything that exist, Happiness, She is made of infinite and eternal Changes.

Happiness?

Nobody owns Her!

We simply enjoy Her delicious and delightful company.

We can only be blessed by Her presence in our lives when the choices that we make are real, honest and true to our own selves.

Yes, the show is real and with our Species, it may be brutal...

But the journey from cradle to grave is temporary.

Evolution is the Blessing of all real and true Happiness.

*

None of us can really and truly deny the fact that during the course of our journeys from cradle to grave, our Happiness also becomes attached to our "Wishes and Dreams".

Others before us have written tidbits of ordinary Wisdom such as - "Your true Home is where your heart is at"...

Our hearts are mostly at our wishes and at our dreams, chiefly when focused that way as it is quite common.

But it also causes plenty of Unhappiness, Disappointments and Frustrations.

Because there is a time and a place for all people, for all things and for all events.

Albeit, we all have been living in an Instant-Coffee and Instant-Everything Culture, a world where Arts have becomes bubble-gum-lite, values and ways of conduct have to limit and to subtract themselves for the sake of primitive mythology/religion, primitive country/politics, primitive business/jobs and an exaggerated devotion to children. And couple with it all, people do not like to WAIT for anything nor anybody.

Amidst this Cultural Paradigm of Exaggerated Social Claims, Standings and Expectations, it becomes very easy to lose one's HAPPINESS.

As Happiness becomes equated with Wishes and Dreams and also with most people's  Unrealistic Expectations.

Don't get me wrong, Magick, Wonders and Miracles still happen, oh yes, but not all the time, at all places and to everybody at once.

So the Cultivation of one's own true Happiness, as a graceful state of our peaceful and harmonious Inner Selves, such is the key to hold on to the True Happiness which puts us first and not our Elemental wishes and dreams of this temporary world and of this  journey from cradle to grave.

Again, the bottom line is Evolution.

Cheers,

Sky

Thank you, Margarida Maria Madruga!

Excellent approach, Sky. Thanks.

Comment by Carmen Elsa Irarragorri Wyland on December 4, 2020 at 4:58pm

Yes, dear Sky, I know about all of that, when I think of my experiences in this lifetime, I remember with more relish those very strong moments when I was giving my all, when I never made any money, but lost it, but just enjoyed my giving and giving unto others. 

We are very strange creatures, and yes, we enjoy the learning process, if we did not we just would check  out and say good-by to everything.

Comment by Sky a.k.a. JD Aeon on December 4, 2020 at 3:43pm

Well-said! Thank you, Carmen E I W! Thank you! It was exactly what I had meant when I wrote "...The key to hold on to the True Happiness, which puts us firs,t and not our elemental wishes & dreams of this temporary world and journey..." in my previous reply to you.

It is a indeed a illusionary world / elemental realm, this earth, this time-band which we are in. But also a delicious elemental experience of life and maybe that's why most of human beings allow themselves to be so caught up in their own show, it is real while we are here and it does matter the "Having" and the "Having Not" of all life experience.

Maybe it is how we are allowed to perceive IT ALL, whether from low or high Evolutionary stages. Thank you for your replies!

Cheers,

Sky

Yes, Sky, but there comes a moment in our life, that nothing can alter our happiness, when we recognize that this life is nothing but a learning experience and that most of our aspirations are nothing but challenges to overcome in a very illusionary World. 

Comment by Sky a.k.a. JD Aeon on December 4, 2020 at 11:07am

Thank you, Carmen Elsa Irarragorri Wyland! You wrote - "...true happiness, and is a state of our inner selves." And I say - Quite! However, we both know, probably anybody reading this article & these replies, we all know that regardless of our  individual "Being State of Grace with our own Self", that in itself, being a form of peaceful / harmonious Happiness. None of us can really and truly deny that during the course of our journeys from cradle to grave, our Happiness also becomes attached to our "Wishes and Dreams", others before us have written tidbits of ordinary wisdom such as - "Your true Home is where your heart is at"... Our hearts are at our wishes and dreams when focused that way as it is quite common and it also causes plenty of Unhappiness, Disappointments and Frustrations because there is a time and a place for all people, all things and all events, but we have been living in an Instant-Coffee and Everything Culture, where Arts have becomes bubble-gum-lite and people do not like to WAIT for anything nor anybody.

Thank you for the inspiration which reminded me of such an important angle of the subject of Happiness!

Amen to what you had to say.

Yes, things change and if we are able to remain happy within changing circumstance, then obviously we have achieved true happiness, and is a state of our inner selves...

Comment by Sky a.k.a. JD Aeon on December 3, 2020 at 7:42pm

The show is real but the journey from cradle to grave is temporary, evolution is the blessing of all happiness.

Thank you! Blessings to you too, dear Rosey!

Comment by Carmen Elsa Irarragorri Wyland on December 3, 2020 at 3:08pm

But true happiness, the one that endures forever, has nothing to do with outward circumstances, it is something that is born from within, it is the one that we achieve after realizing that it is our choice and our choice alone, the one that resides within us an that either we choose one thing or the other. 

This is what mastery of ourselves is all about. 

When we can be happy in spite f whatever is going on, whatever the show is all about, when we can detach from the show and not believe that the show is real, but we, the expectations, are the real thing. 

Try that one every day as an exercise, and see if the results are not worth the effort...
