Are you chasing Elusive Butterfly of Happiness?
Many are happy butterflies in the garden of life. Imagine a young child in the garden on summer day. The child sees a beautiful butterfly that flies from flower to flower. With the eyes of the wonder, the child wants to see it close, touch it and hold it in hand. The child walks towards the flower with which butterflies are resting on, with arms outline, only to feel as if he can only reach, leaves butterflies to another flower. Undeterred the child monitors the butterfly in the next flower, and then, but the butterfly always keeps just beyond the scope.
As adults can happily like this butterfly, always right outside of reach. It becomes almost obsolete and the words "if only …" become an increasingly large part of our thoughts and vocabulary. If I had a little more money, I would be happy, if I was in good contact, I would be happy if I could only have another job ……… and the list goes on. Even if we achieve one of our "if only" desires, then the happiness we are still looking is right outside ours. The truth of saying "The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence" becomes our focus and perception. If this becomes our focus, we find that dissatisfaction and unhappiness are constantly increasing in our lives and experiences.
Our unhappiness within us can not be completely satisfied with external events or circumstances. To find happiness in life, we must first be in peace with ourselves. External events and circumstances can bring happiness to us at the moment, but they do not have a permanent impact on our inner self. Life experience produces a combination of good and bad conditions for everyone. Relying on the experience of life for our source of happiness would mean living life in a constant emotional Russian Russian ride.
Happiness comes indoors. The inner pleasure that lives on the rollercoaster rides of life has its roots deep within our being. Sourcing happiness comes from finding and embracing who we are as a person and living for purpose. We need to find peace in all areas of our lives – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. To discover confirmation, purpose and peace in all these areas will give a sense of end to life. If we neglect any of these areas, we experience a sense of emptiness and feel something missing. It's not a solid foundation to build happiness, but we usually try to fill this imperfectness by looking for external solutions. That's the point when we can fall into an unforgettable butterfly & # 39; syndrome, and experience such resentment.
Is the joy of a terrific butterfly for you? Spend time in a quiet reflection. Are you negligent one of four important things you are and experience a sense of emptiness within? The more you discover, embrace and accept your uniqueness and purpose, the more you will experience the butterfly happy alighting on your shoulder.
