Awareness and Happiness related
I just watched this video and thought it was interesting.
I dont know who is familiar with some principles of Buddhism, but being self aware, always living in the present and not having a wandering mind are some of the ways that lead to happiness. This just proves that point.
Anyone surprised, agree, disagree with this. I thought it was interesting because I know that sometimes i’ll find myself imagining about something in the future that Im looking forward too when Im in a bad mood and it puts me in a good mood, but according to the study that is not the common trend
@eric0127, I agree with most, if not all, of the principles of Buddhism. And many books are very similar to some of the principles, like “The Power of Now”.
@iluvdamusic, Good point. I personally try to find happiness in all possible situations. It can be difficult sometimes (like when Im sitting in a biology lecture). But I feel like being able to find the beauty and goodness of your current situation will lead to a more pure and real happiness as opposed to reliving a good memory.
Im not saying to not think about the past and when you were happy, but I dont think that it should be the main way for a person to be happy
