...in the pursuit of Happiness...

Peace...

More thoughts...I'll make this one quick...

17) What is the meaning of civilization?
One having Knowledge, Wisdom, Understanding, Culture, Refinement, and is not a savage in the pursuit of Happiness...

Gotta disagree with one point in this...Happiness isn't something to be pursued outside of ones' self, never has been...It's already there, as a natural state of Mind, as a CHOICE...Children do it all the time...Choose to be happy...Just as there can't be both light and dark occupying the same space, happiness and it's opposites can't exist in the same space...

If happiness could be pursued, it could only be by taking a trip within, digging through all that keeps it from coming to the surface (acquired savagery)...

Peace...

  1. happiness for no reason.. that is my goal.
    The way I see it, happiness is the natural state. What people choose is unhappiness or negativity. The unnatural state.

  2. Peace...It starts off with a forced smile, looking for reasons to be happy...focusing on what you want, and not what you don't want, just reveling in the fact that you're alive in this day & time like no other on Planet Earth
