HAPPINESS – EVERYONE’S DILEMMA
Everyone wants to be happy—everyone. Yes, even masochists want pain in order to gain satisfaction; fulfill a need—in order to be happy. Happiness is our inherent yearning for fulfillment in some form; to gain pleasure or avoid pain. We believe fulfilment is earning more money, acquiring fame, starting a business, a great relationship, having a family, acquiring knowledge, traveling, staying healthy, and much more. We rarely question further about happiness. Yet, these successes may not, ultimately, cause happiness. We find their rewards are only temporary. They may, in fact, create more desires to which we reach for again and again, gradually leading us to the same void.
