HAPPINESS REVEALED!!



In this short span of life, I have always believed in giving more often.Yes the world today is preoccupied and no one has time . The hearts have grown selfish and the minds have grown competitive. But I still believe that we must give,whenever possible, not just because it will make the other person happy but because it will make us happier.




To begin with ,lets see what HAPPINESS actually is.We all love to be happy but where is this happiness sold? Had someone been selling it, in these markets , I am sure everyone would have been happy. But that is not the case. We all look for happiness in things that satiate us and that includes trivial things like shopping, hanging out with friends, getting good gifts and loads of money. But I have often found that the moment I enter my home after shopping loads of stuff I start thinking about the money I spent, and whether the dress suits to the tee or not. And hence this kind of happiness is momentary, hence it isn't happiness at all. It flies as soon as we satiate our desires.

Now you must be wondering why am I blabbering about happiness and what is true happiness if its not satiating your own self.

Well guys I am writing on this because today I found the real happiness. And you wont believe it came from the most ordinary of things.

I found my happiness in teaching students, in giving them just a small part of what I have learnt in these two decades of my life. Frankly speaking I started this for money but within a day itself my view changed. Now I am doing this just to enlighten the lives of a few, not for any monetary benefits. Believe me this inner satisfaction is divine. The jetlag of teaching students for 3-4 hours is infact the real comfort for me. And when a student solves a question on a topic taught by you, You actually feel you are in empyream.

Thats why I say to give unconditionally is divine because it holds the secret to the inner satisfaction and true happiness.


"Only when we give joyfully without hesitation or thought of gain,

can we truely know what true happiness means."

  5. Teaching is perhaps the best thing i ever did in my life...i really yearn for the feeling which one gets when his/her student does well in the taught field....as said in previous comments it is indeed addictive....the only thing which we need to follow while teaching is to bring our self to the level of our students and then rise with them not to force your students to rise upto to you....
    and there are no students jo dimaag chaat te hai there are only teachers who force their students to do so....whatever student does wrong infact signifies the shortcomings of their teacher and not the student...

  13. @Aj well yes I am real..I never said money doesnt matters but the real happiness is not asociated wd it..u can experience it urself.

  14. @sobhit Yes u said it right..Many a times we do feel that somthing's right but its difficult to practice it.

    And ya I agree wd u n thz lines- "naya saal mubarak sahib" is more valuable n truthfull dan d mood set insyd f sm fancy party.

    tk care.

  15. well i never talked abt money .... what was i commending on maturity of your mind which seems really impossible to me and it is RARELY POSSIBLE to find ... that thing really captures my attention .... money :it is better not to worry abt it(i never do ) and more important is to follow ur passion ... that is what I have been doing .

    take care
