We can see the world around us and try to make a better life. Of that, you try to have a proper education, make money, buy a new car and house. While these are what one can pursue for a happy life, sometimes, it may seem a bit to grasp. There is a thought that to have a happy life, very little is needed. How could we really understand this point? Suppose we look within the roots of our nature. This is by looking within ourselves. Find what moves the gears inside that shape the other gears as it goes out. The little gears shape the big gears.
For instance, why did you choose the career you have been following? You can imagine your career as a gear. While the career could be to help your family, let’s look within the gear of your career. It could be touching the needs of physical, educational, love, or a special quality in life worth striving.
When you look within, you can find a purpose! Within a purpose, there can be values you uphold such as love, kindness, compassion, connection, strength, responsibility, etc. Even within values, there could be subtle reasons worth understanding about yourself that you could discover. In the way our thinking, there is a root that resurfaces again and again. When you pay attention and keep on that root, there is happiness. It’s not a painstaking exercise, really it requires very little. Though, the root shapes our life accordingly to the nature we live in. Within yourself is that root and you can really guide yourself better in living a happy life.
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking. – Marcus Aurelius
