3 years, 11 months ago

so there isn’t anything wrong persay, in my life.
i have health and family and friends.
not really lacking any basic needs.
but i have this ongoing buzz of unhappiness going thru my head.
on occasion i find myself laughing or having a good time
but not like old times.

@somuch2say…this is the negative side of you attempting to bring you down…it’s job is to destroy you…the funny thing is…you created it to protect you from the negative outside world…unfortunately…you gave it too much of your power to it…now; you have the task of un-creating it…to do this…you have to go inside and clear it out…you do this by clearing your mind…as you clear your mind the emotions connecting to the thoughts will also be released…peace joy happiness love will return to you :D

good luck :D

I think happiness ultimately comes from within. The habit of happiness must be intrinsically developed over time, it can be cultivated within the self. Also I don’t think happiness should depend solely on external events or circumstances as external pleasures can be fleeting and brief. In becoming more aware of your conscious and subconscious thought processes, as well as learning how to better regulate and control these processes, the habit of being happy can then start to form through your intent. We all have tremendous potential located within our subconscious self, we can radically change the way we think and perceive things through practice and learning. This all of course is a journey and takes time, I’ve only just started mine. I highly recommend reading(or audiobook) “The New Psycho Cybernetics” by Dr. Maxwell Maltz. Jordan had recommended it in the “What book(s) have influenced you the most?” thread.

I feel the same way sometimes CJV… Its just an overall sense of “I’m not doing this world any good being here.” Its awful, and at times all-consuming. :/ I am sorry, because I think I know where you are coming from.
I used to be happy, but for the last few years I have been too uptight. I feel nervous about what everyone thinks (dumb, I know but still,) but this site has REALLY helped :) The meditation and clearing my mind has done wonders on how tightly-wound I am usually.

Ok I hate to sound like an ass, but Maureen, every time i see you type like that I imagine someone talking and shouting every few words. Its equal parts annoying and hilarious.

@CJV, Go on an adventure! Get some thrills back in your life.

I agree Bryan, it would be nice if you could use a more proper/neat/decent way of expressing yourself Maureen, the meaning is often lost now and my eyes bleed when I try to read it.

@CJV Ask yourself this, do you think you need to gain anything you don’t already have right now to be happy? Because, if you desire something to become happy, how do you know you don’t desire something else or more once you obtained the first desire? As long as you have the feeling of desire you can’t feel complete.

I just can’t ever find out what will really make me happy. Right now in my life I’m pretty much right in the middle. Half of the time I feel happy but half of the time I have this horrible feeling in my chest that I don’t really know how to explain. It just hurts a little and makes it hard to breath. Deep breaths sometimes help but I still wish it would just go away for good.

Happiness is a warm blanket.

It sounds like you are carrying a weight on your heart

Keep in mind that you don’t have to be happy all the time, accept that feelings that are contrary to happiness are frequent and they always will be, but that’s what makes life worth living. The downs make the ups that much better.
