Self-help life truths. · The free mind of a human god!

The wider view…

“Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.” ~ Theodore Isaac Rubin; American psychiatrist, and author.


“Life is not easy for any of us.  But what of that?  We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves.  We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.” ~ Marie Curie; Polish-French physicist and chemist.



Happiness, true happiness, is realized and experienced in the individual by having patience and perseverance, by having diligence and commitment to a cause; that all means struggle through challenges, a deeper understanding, and reluctance to quit.  Self-discipline is paramount through it all since self-discipline means passion to this superior commitment; this is the path to what lasts and to what gives profound meaning to our lives.

Of course, the rest is just fleeting pleasure, it will not necessarily be struggle nor make us get out of our comfort zones.  The lower mind, the animal condition in man will always tell us of the easy pleasures in life, where the ego feels comfortable and gives mere satisfaction to the same ego-centered mind; however, most of the time this does not last and the mind is like in a sugar rush… it is extremely excited and high… but soon afterwards the mind goes back to its normal state and then there is the immediate sugar crash…


But through intelligent planning, analysis, hard and consistent work, and a noble and pure passionate heart, happiness can be experienced, true and constant happiness that is and not mere excitement and pleasure with a disguise to fool us into happiness condition.


For example, most of the time people get into relationships while confusing a mere attraction to the pleasures of the same relationship with true happiness, and that is because they are fooled by their egos and the feeling it superficially creates in them; however, the feeling of happiness is pure and is not based upon attachment to a face, to an intellect, or to a personality–these things might help, but they do not connect two souls because these things are tied to change (one day they are there, the next day they may not be.

No, happiness is not pleasure.  Happiness is the deeper connection to a person or to an event just for the sake of giving love, for the sake of connecting; it has no reason more than the process of expanding love.   The ego expects love and happiness.  The pure heart just feels a soul connection and gives love because that is what it does… it just gives love… in the process of giving is the happiness experienced.

So, pay attention in your own life and learn to see the difference between true happiness and fleeting pleasure, between what lasts and what doesn’t.  This will guide you towards true success and happiness which is real and thus brings real value to your life, to your superior development.
