Pain makes us human, that’s why many of us get so addicted to it, including myself. Sometimes we’re so addicted to it that we want to believe we don’t deserve happiness.

We fall in and out of love, our path may cross with people, sometimes they stay but more often their paths lead to different directions.

There are times when we convince ourselves that things were not the way we wanted because of our fault. There are also times when we couldn’t help but put the blame on others.

But no matter what, the earth still revolves around the sun, and the sun revolves around the black hole at the center of the milky way. Stars and planets collide and explode all the time, but still new galaxies are being born everyday somewhere in the universe.

In our irrelevancies, we want to feel that our lives matter to those we love. In fact it matters. Our hopes and dreams are what keeping us alive. And when we’re gone, hopefully we’d die happy, knowing that we did our best so far.

Good night and may we all live a good life, a meaningful one 🙂

Paradise

Wealth can be a burden if we’re too attached to it, unless of course if we choose to see it as a means to make people happy. And that includes ourselves as well 😊

I’m not a very religious person at all, but I am aware that the fear of losing is the root of all misery. Yes, indeed we are living in the world of physical matters, therefore we are bound to all physical and chemical laws with all their consequences. 

So in order not only to survive, hopefully we can live our lives fully by optimizing all our knowledge about how things and society work and use it to raise above the challenges we face in life. At the end of the day, we are searching for happiness. And we can be happier when we can make those dear to us happy without having to pretend to be someone we are not. 

One smile at a time, one kindness at a time, one step closer to build our own paradise on earth.

On Moving On

There might be someone worth not moving on from anyway. As much as you hate it, there’s even more peace to it to battle this world with. 
Not everyone is lucky enough to find it, and not everyone feels lucky enough to keep it. Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. If we can see it through, then we’d better make it come true!

A wise man once said that we are forever bound to what we tamed. I would say that we are bound to what makes us tamed. And then, everything else would hold no meaning at all because we know what/who makes us happy just by becoming who we are. 

That is how to feel with the heart, those invisible things unseen to the eyes 🙂

I hope we find our own pieces of happiness every single day

Death and Its Welcoming Hands

I’ve been thinking a lot about this topic lately, but not in a scary or fearful perspective anymore. Life and death belong together, not one exists unattached from the other. Every living being will come to its end as we all have our own lifespan in a dimension called time. And as we begin to understand how to live in the present time, we can live happily, not dwelling too much of the glory or the pain of our past, and neither do we worry too much about the future that has not been. And only when the present time is becoming more precious to us, we are able to grasp every of our own living moments not by holding it too tight but by sincerely accepting everything that happens as it appears. Those are the moments that make us a living being. Those are the things that make us live our lives livelier. 

Unafraid of death, we will appreciate our every second very highly, draw our every breath deeply and more importantly become a happier version of ourselves 🙂
Have a great Sunday!

On Love and Happiness

Not being able to do something for someone we care about does not limit our ability to love. Just to be happy when seeing somebody else happy, or otherwise to symphatize when someone is sad, is already making ourselves more human. That’s why to me, to be human is to love, and to live is to care.

When we can not be with someone, we don’t necessarily cease to love. Quite often our acknowledgement that we can better love someone by not continuing to stand side by side – maybe because of personality issues, or huge difference of preferences in life, etc – can in time enable us to expand the love within our souls. It only become possible once we accept our very own existence, free from all guilt, despair and disappointment. And in what other ways can we really enjoy our coexistence with our fellow Earthlings than to share the positivity? 

Nothing in this world is eternal, not even eternity. But love – as a verb, not only as a feeling – can make a huge difference in each of our journey to the end of our lives, collectively and individually.
