The reality that you live... Is your reality the same reality as other people. You all live in the same world, but the way you look at things is different. But is it the same reality???

First, what is reality? We can agree that reality is the notion of things as they exist. By looking at things and seeing their existence, that is their reality. However, not all things are the same and can be interpreted the same way. People look at things differently. People may look at the same thing on different occasions and can interpret them differently, but is it the same thing, or the same reality?

Our emotions also play a roll in our reality. The way we feel at the instant we look at something reflects the reality that we see. If you feel angry or sad, the reality that you see in one thing differs from someone who feels happy or excited. But you are looking at the same thing, right? For example, the rain can cause different realities on different people. For some, the rain might cause anger, while for others, the rain can cause sadness or another emotion. Also, when you look at the rain on one day, you might feel something, but when you look at the rain on another day, then you might change your feelings and your reality is different. Even if the rain and the surroundings are the same. The reality is the rain, but the way the rain is interpreted is very different.

So, what does that say about our reality? The notion of things as they exist need an interpretation of the way we see our reality. This means that we create our own reality because we interpret our surroundings differently from each other. This means that our realities are different. More importantly, we create our own realities, it depends how you look at it... all the time...

Being Happy?

What does it mean to be happy?

I'm sitting at my desk wondering...  Does it mean being happy all the time? Once a day? Is it having a happy life with some moments of sadness? How do you measure being happy? I mean, I'm happy with my life, but there are moments of sadness. Right? So, how do you measure happiness? Every day should be the greatest day of your life. You're alive! Right? So, why do we not live life happily sometimes?

Life is all about making the best of what you have. If we don't have moments of sadness we would never know what is like to be happy... There are people who are suffering all over the world. I wish I could change all of that. Yet, I can't, we can only do so much... What we can do is live every day as if it was our last. We can find peace if we create a state of happiness and peacefulness to make an aura of hopefulness. Maybe you don't agree, but how do you measure the happiness that we are living? I am not talking about you being happy because you bought a car.

Happiness is more than that, what about our family? What about our religion? Where do you come from? Friends... Happiness should be all around us, it is our tool to change the world, and to live every day as if it was your last.
