"Happiness for me is when I totally forget that there could be goals to achieve. When I am in the moment and feel OK with my own being, when I accept myself and I don't question anything - this is the moment when I am fully present."
We spend so much time and energy with
things which are not here or now.
We are asking ourselves where will I
be going to go tonight? How will I spend my holidays? Who loves
me? Who is not here? What about my finances in 10, 15, 20 years?
Everybody is striving for
happiness and nobody is getting there. The most common idea of happiness is
like being on drugs. When you're on drugs you feel at one with the
universe. You feel a big euphoria. Some of us believe this
is what happiness should be just all the time. I started to look
what is behind these ideas. What I found was two motives that
navigate our actions. These are the wishes to feel safe and to become
happy. This book is an exploration
about why happiness seems so hard to achieve and why we have created
so weird and strange a world around us.
