>The Pursuit of Happ’y’ness

>Ok guys. Time for some introspection. When I use the word ‘pursuit’, I don’t really mean ‘pursuing’… I mean ‘chasing’! Now I wonder, why have I given special reference to ‘y’ in happ’y’ness? The answer lies in the question. Everytime I chase some things (goals, targets) I just go for it or leave it midway. But whatever maybe the outcome of my chase, I always ask ‘why’. And thats the reason why ‘y’ deserves a special mention.

Ever thought of chasing something that could give you happ’y’ness? Ever pursued a career that could give you happ’y’ness? Ever fought with the world, for someone you loved so deeply that could give you happ’y’ness? Ever sacrificed aims, dreams and ambitions for the sake of others happ’y’ness? If your is answer is yes, then I guess at some or the other point of lifetime you might be questioning yourself why.

Poor have been chasing money to gain happiness. Rich have been chasing ‘more’ money to buy ‘more’ happiness. Laymen have been chasing knowledge to unlock the doors of happiness. Scholars have been chasing ‘more’ knowledge to gain ‘more’ happiness than others. Politicians are trying to conquer countries to gain happiness. Terrorists are trying to conquer the world to gain ‘more’ happiness. Spiritual gurus resort to practices like meditation to attain happiness. Black magicians resort to ‘more’ practices to attain ‘more’ happiness.

By realizing the truth about happiness, I realize one fact. The root of all goods and evils is happiness. If it is so, then why is the world so engrossed in The Pursuit Of Happ’y’ness?
