We are living in this life, running to attain one main goal and if our instruments are different our goal still the same and which is Happiness. The concept of happiness this term seems small from the outside but it is too broad when you start whirling on it. Before I commence discussing this subject I asked a set of people and particularly my friends on social media about what does happiness mean to them? And most of the responses I got, come to a certain point where emotions, health, security and inner peace are positive. Whereas, happiness for some is originated when they obey Allah; following his straight path and being satisfied of themselves, sharing this happiness with the surrounding people around them. The silly and serious response in the same time was, Happiness is money in our current time. Generally, each one of us has his/her own thought about happiness and this depends on how he/she is living and understanding this life.
Simply, this small view I am going to end it with a personal opinion of mine; for me acceptance, patience and gratitude are the three gates toward the first step to happiness. The time you accept the situations, conditions of yourself you start bearing more to be a patient and you start reaching gratitude as well. No one attains the extent of pure happiness but each one of us should relate his/her life to a goal this would be enough to gain more hope and resisting is the last key toward happiness. Osho stated that “One thing: you have to walk, and create the way by your walking; you will not find a ready-made path. It is not so cheap, to reach to the ultimate realization of truth. You will have to create the path by walking yourself; the path is not ready-made, lying there and waiting for you. It is just like the sky: the birds fly, but they don’t leave any footprints. You cannot follow them; there are no footprints left behind.”
