I’m not a philosopher, or anything close to it. It’s just that sometimes people suddenly turn into philosophers. I’ve been thinking about philosophy recently, and I’ve come to the conclusion that the one way to be truly happy is to be happy with what you have. I’ve been struggling a lot with the idea of happiness, just like I think everyone does at one point or another.
But I’ve come to the conclusion that it doesn’t matter what you have in life. You can be happy with what you have, or you can be unhappy with what you have.
Sometimes people suddenly turned into philosophers. I woke up this morning. I had a shower, brushed my teeth, washed my hair, and got dressed. I made a cup of coffee, drank it, and ate breakfast.
What does it mean to be alive? We can say that with the happiness we can alive. What does it mean to be human? Because we need to show sympathy to others. What does it mean to be you? Because due to mindfulness.
These are questions that can be pondered for hours, and they have no easy answers. But there is one thing that does seem to be true about human beings. We’re all constantly trying to figure out who we are. Whenever people suddenly turned into philosophers, I always thought of the historic philosopher King Solomon.
What I learned from King Solomon is to think before you speak. If you speak without thinking, that’s not an intelligent approach. Philosophy is all about exploring the fundamental questions about life, but it’s hard to know where to start. That is essential sometimes to become happy.
