My primary question is your personal definition of happiness.
What I have understood so far is there is some feeling which I have felt which makes me feel happy. This happens in different occasions, some of which I felt are :
- Understanding the logic behind something. An example was a time in school when I understood what it meant to say that a line intersected a plane at a particular point. Instead of just solving the equation, I was able to actually feel what is going on when I did each of those calculations.
- When I feel some body found my work useful. - Like a website I made etc.
- When I travel aimlessly and find an exotic spot.
- When other people say/acknowledge that I did something good.
But many at times, when one of the above situations happen, I dont feel that happiness. May be I am tired / tensed at that point of time.
So I am not able to find a logic behind happiness.
What is yours?
I have felt moments of happiness in school when I have been able to figure out things I never have done. Or when figuring out things no body else had.
I traveled a bit hoping to meet happiness, did not happen.
Have any of you been able to define happiness?
