Happiness, With What it is Connected?

When you constantly fear and doubt to loose happiness, try to know the cause of that happiness, with what it is connected, and if it has some cause, then it is considered as temporary happiness, because if we remove the cause, happiness can also be removed. So don’t look for any cause to be happy, but just choose to be happy. Choose to be free from every such bondage, not easy though but everything starts with practice. We need to understand our own selves better; bondages are only there because there is someone to overcome them, otherwise they would not exit. Try to understand your doubt, fear, and anxiety, with what it is connected and will it help in any case to bring better things? Your happiness will always be yours as long as you live purely in it.

Question Everything

Neither believing in everything blindly nor doubting everything without any substance would let our minds or thoughts to evolve. It would resist our knowledge and awareness from developing, it would resist us from learning and becoming self-aware. In fact, sometimes believing in everything blindly is like doubting everything at the same time. If I would have to explain what believing in something blindly means I would say it is not knowing exactly what is going on, it is not knowing the reason and trusting the unknown to handle it. When you believe in something blindly or without any reasons, you essentially let events happen and you don’t think about what caused it, what solved it, or what the aftermath can turn into.

Whereas doubting everything is a little tricky because it’s often confused with being skeptic. First, doubt is when you believe that something won’t work, whether it’s an action, an experiment, even an idea that is easy to understand. Skeptic is similar but is open to having its mind changed, where doubt, you pretty much cannot be convinced. Also note that doubt is an emotional response while skepticism is mental, so doubt is only the degree of how strong your emotion is, and therefore temporary, which is why it acts as a learning barrier. So to doubt everything means you are constantly using negative emotions to fend off any type of notion that there is a bright side that can be achieved.

The way is to Question everything. It would be good for us if we question everything as questioning everything will surely make us a genuine thinker which indeed can raise our awareness and knowledge, and help us in developing. It would let our minds and thoughts to evolve more, and make us self-aware. So question everything instead of doubting and believing everything or something blindly. Even if the answer is in front of you, question it to be certain, this word is the root of all intelligence, even curiosity is the attribute of questioning, and without it, we would had never learned much. So in the end I would say, question everything and don’t believe in anything unless it agrees with your own understanding, be a genuine thinker. I’m trying to be one, are you?
