What is Happiness?
Recently I’ve always been bothered by a question. I often ask myself: what is happiness? What is the measurement of the criterion of happiness? Until today, I could not get a satisfied answer. Happiness can not be described by a word or a sentence. It is both abstract and concrete. Happiness is so abstract that there is no language could express it, it could be a perception, an experience or a process…;happiness is also so concrete like an object, a warm jacket in a cold winter, a piece of bread in hunger, a drop of water in a desert.
A homeless man said: happiness is a house. If you had a house you would have love and warmness;
A hungry person said: happiness is bread, you would feel happy when you had your bread;
A pious adherent said: happiness is God. If you prayed devoutly to God, God would bring happiness to you;
People who fall in love said: happiness is to find another part of love, love and beloved;
People who got married said: happiness is that two people love each other, they have respects, and be getting older together….
A serious ill patient said: happiness is health, once you were healthy, you would have everything;
Peasants said: happiness is harvest. From sowing to reaping you put too much sweat and toil in it, only the twinkling of harvest makes you perceive happiness;
A rich man said: happiness is wealth with which you could enjoy untold wealth and high honour;
A poor man said: happiness is money. If you would have money, you could be able to buy everything you want;
If you ask ten thousands of people, they would give you ten thousands of different answers….
I’ve finally understood that happiness is actually very real, it just exists around us. You feel your life meaningful and valuable, it is not necessary to be fire and thunder, or to shake heaven and earth, but simple, happy and healthy – that is happiness!
At this very moment I am feeling very happy because I have already found the best answer of happiness!
