What will you do to find your happiness?

What is your happiness?

Having a luxury car, expensive jewelry or a large house? Getting a lot of money or high social status?

When we get these things, we might think it’s our happiness, but usually it doesn’t continue for long and we try to get other things to find new happiness. One day we realize these things never make us happy.


Because we are forced to admit we feel something in our minds…”a sense of emptiness”.

Finally we stop getting the things to remove “a sense of emptiness” and decide to change our life.


Here is the question.

Why can’t we find happiness from the things? Why do we feel “a sense of emptiness” even though we get the things?

Originally we might be happy…when we were born, we already might have been happy, so we don’t need to get anything from outside us. But we didn’t know it because nobody told us about it, almost all people think we have to get something to be happy.

The teaching of the wild Pelicans.

By the Noosa River. (Noosa, QLD, Australia)

We can see the wild Pelicans here. They are calm, friendly and good flyers.

Their flying style is really interesting. It’s hard to fly for their big and heavy bodies so they have to spread their wings against the wind and wait for a while until catching the strong wind. But they never try to force themselves to fly. They just know they can catch the wind and fly. Finally when the timing comes, they start moving their wings and then fly high.

When we have a difficult situation, we try to resist and remove it from our life. It’s possible sometimes but in most cases the situation gets bad.

If we receive the situation and trust ourselves as Pelicans do, we might be able to see the different future.

We are alive to be happy.


Enjoy having a coffee latte with the Five senses.

At Bookstore & Cafe “The River Read

While hearing the sounds the leaves rustle in the breeze,

I taste a lovely heart shaped chocolate served with a coffee latte,

hold the glass and feel the temperature of it,

then I enjoy the aroma of freshly brewed espresso blended with steamed milk.

It’s a cozy and peaceful time.

The world I can see here is simple and beautiful.
