Achieving Happiness through Mind Power

Happiness is defined in the dictionary as a state of well being. It doesn’t say much about happiness, does it? It is probably the reason why everyone is looking to find it and only a few actually does. Some equate it with having lots of money, and those who do have a lot of money point to health as the source of happiness. There are those who find happiness synonymous with a new car, a new house or a diamond necklace. Are you happy? Indeed, what is happiness and how do we achieve it?

There are those who would have us believe that happiness is just a notion, an obscure thought or feeling. If that is the case, it is of little wonder that few people achieve happiness. “People spend a lifetime searching for happiness; looking for peace. They chase idle dreams, addictions, religions, even other people, hoping to fill the emptiness that plagues them.

The irony is the only place they ever needed to search was within,” so declares Ramona Anderson. That happiness is a state of mind is a truth that I embrace. There are people who live in extreme poverty and yet say they are happy. There are those suffering from illness, have been diagnosed with a limited time to live and are also able to say they are happy. They have determined in their minds that they are happy regardless of conditions or circumstances which they find themselves in. How do they do it? The answer, mind power.

A lot of people confuse pleasure with happiness. I say confuse because a man may take pleasure in happiness but not necessarily find happiness in pleasure. Pleasure is the feeling we get when we receive a gift, get promoted at work, or perhaps play the latest craze on a Nintendo. This feeling doesn’t usually last very long. And when the euphoria ends, we may feel emptiness or disappointment and seek that pleasurable experience again somewhere.

Happiness, on the other hand, lasts longer. Since it is in the mind, it doesn’t need these gleeful moments, although at times it can indeed heighten the feeling of happiness. As the mind power has determined happiness, a person does not need to receive a gift to feel happiness. He can be perfectly comfortable giving, and may even find it more fulfilling. He shares in the joy of a co-worker getting promoted. He is happy enough watching his son have fun with the Game Boy.

We achieve happiness in our mind long before any joyful event takes place. Mind power can find reasons for happiness even when tragedy has struck. You do not need to go far to find happiness.

You’ll find it within.
