One should not search for happiness or the meaning of life
You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of.
You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
In the same way, the most fertile emotions will be lost to you if you insist on analyzing them.
We, as developing humans on a very fast changing society, diligently seek happiness based on the vanal and emaulated example of happiness most people show according to standards of society; and along the way we presumptuously try to find the meaning of life in hope it brings us happiness and and wholeness.
Sadly, we focus on the trivialities of life neglecting the prescious and unique moments such as looking at the flowers or getting lost in the pure and sincere lugh a kid can give . Instead we get lost trying to work towards something hardly achievable and never stisffying or fulfilling.
I truly undersood the meaning of happiness when I stopped trying to make sense of it an started acknowledging the subtle signs of it in every aspect of my life.
Happiness consists in frequent repetition of pleasure.
I wish you endless dreams and the furious desire to make some of them come true.
I wish you to love what you need to love and forget what you need to forget.
I wish you passions, I wish you silences. I wish you bird songs on waking up and children's laughter.
I wish you to respect the differences of others, because the merit and value of each one is often to be discovered. I wish you to resist the bogging down, the indifference and the negative virtues of our times.
Finally, I wish you never to give up research, adventure, life, love, because life is a magnificent adventure and no reasonable person should give it up without fighting a hard battle.
Above all, I wish you to be you, proud and happy, because happiness is our true destiny.
