When I accidently meet with Happiness

In the present world, one thing is very difficult to get and this is happiness. According to most of the eminent psychologists of this world, Happiness is the main motive of our all actions. In simple words, we are doing most of things in this world to get happiness in return. However, still we find around us that majority of the world is unhappy. It is not the case that only poor or people suffering from illnesses are unhappy in this world but many rich and healthy people are even much unhappy than the poor and ill.

Now, why so much unhappiness in world when most of the saints say that we can easily find happiness inside our heart and mind? Recently, I accidently discovered one answer to this question which may also provide help to others in finding happiness. Most of us are never able to differentiate between happiness and pleasure during our life and most of time misunderstood pleasure as happiness. Pleasure mostly results when sensual organs interact with some pleasure causing object like touching, smelling, seeing etc. We can easily get the example of pleasure by eating good food which results from our organs of taste, pleasure by seeing beautiful things which results from our eyes etc.

Therefore, our pleasure depends upon our sensual organs and exists for only small time until our sensual organs are in contact of pleasure causing object. Moreover, mostly pleasure start decreasing with time and we may not like same object after watching or sensing it number of times. Overall, a person never finds a perfect solution for getting pleasure constantly and therefore suffers in the end. Whereas, happiness in our internal phenomenon and we are not required to search it anywhere.

Happiness always remains inside us irrespective of our state, power or money. We are only required to see this happiness inside our body and dig it out to remain happy forever. People can get the help of prayers or meditation for getting habitual with state of happiness. People can easily find happiness by separating pleasure from happiness which is actual cause of our most of unhappiness in long run.
