How to Be Happy Articles



What is Happiness?

If you have come to this website in search of how to be happy then it is imperative that we get to the bottom of this question first. What is happiness to you? We believe happiness is not a tangible concept that is the same for every person, it is something more abstract and elusive but at the same time, we believe it is a highly accessible aspect of our human nature.

To start with a conventional definition sourced via google we could certainly say that 'Happiness is a state of well-being characterized by emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.' This is a good starting place and generally in the ball park for most people.

Our mission here however is not only to answer the 'what is happiness' question but to go deeper than that  and ponder the question 'Is it possible to somehow experience happiness on a permanent basis?' That is, to experience a permanent sense of at least contentment at the lowest level through to intense joy at the highest?

For, if we are able to answer the 'what is happiness' question without this deeper addition, then what are we really left with? I'll tell you. We are left with an intellectual recognition of a possible human state that once achieved is one that comes and goes, and only at the best of times.

Is this really what you are looking for in your quest for happiness, a passing state? We believe it is possible to reach higher.

Many people will tell you that it is delusional to think happiness can be a permanent state, and on a conventional level, we have to agree. When you approach it from the level of the mind it can be nothing other than an occasional passing state. But our endeavour here is to kind of bypass the mind all together and end up coming from a place beyond the mind that is already available to all of us.

Happiness is Peace, Joy and Contentment. And it is available to you immediately. How? Well thats the million dollar question and one we endeavour to address through the content in this site, plus in our free program. If you have not signed up for that yet you can do it HERE

The Pursuit of Happiness

The idea that you have to strive to be happy is totally counterproductive and a waste of your time. What a relief! It's time to let go of the pursuit of happiness, to let go of the trying, and notice the resource already within you.

The pursuit of happiness is literally only a mind game we play with ourselves. It is only the mind that believes in the notion that 'someday I will get there, to be happy I just need to achieve this and that and then I will be there.' The problem here is not that we have these thoughts, it is that we are completely identified with the mind and actually believe in the thoughts. We believe our body-mind is who we are and so when these thoughts come up we experience them on every level of our being as truth.

This concept that we are our body-mind and need to 'achieve' happiness is something we have simply been given by the society we live in. It is clear that when we are born, for the first few days or weeks we are not even aware that we have a physical body. We felt that we were still a part of our mother and that nothing existed outside of that. Even outside physical objects were perceived as part of us, we had never known any different. The truly amazing aspect of this birth experience when we really look at is that we were there. What was there? Our sense of existence was there. We were alive.

During the brief time that we had no association with our physical body and maybe even the mind, we still existed, we existed without the mental reference point of our body-mind, we were simply here, present. And the presence that was there when you were born is the same presence that is here with you right now, it is deeper than your body-mind, it is the life force running through you at this moment. 

This is where true lasting happiness resides, beyond the mind and body. Once we recognise this place from which the rest of us emanates and operate from that place then anything that happens in our experience, good or bad, is simply noticed as a passing phenomenon and deep contentment arises with what ever is happening. We call this contentment unconditional happiness.

There is nothing to cultivate, this presence is already here. Call off the pursuit of happiness and simply start to notice.
