True Joy

True Joy

Raise your hand if you want to be happy. Fully, completely happy. I see many raised hands, maybe because after all, being happy is everyone’s desire. Is it appropriate to say that everyone who desires this joy is actually experiencing it? Are we truly happy and are we surrounded by people who are equally happy? Can we also say that everything we do is always aimed at this happiness? I recall my adolescent years, when the pursuit of joy was truly my motivation, the reason I chose to do or not to do something. If I was not convinced that something would make me truly happy, then I wouldn’t do it, because I perceived it as a waste of time. Walking aimlessly downtown with my classmates, checking out shops or guys? No, thanks! Going out at night just to hang out?...
