The Rain Will Fall And I Won't Care

Being enlightened doesn't mean being happy. It means you're ok even when things aren't.

Bring on enlightenedment or amnesia! I can't stop thinking of all my missteps. I can't stop thinking of all the what-ifs..Am i alone? Am i the only one mind-f__king myself to death?

No. No you're not. Everyone out there is confused and wondering the same thing. Everyone else is just hoping that there is at least one other person who shares the experience.

exactly.....no one seems to understand this.

theres a strange stillness having it though. You want to shake it into ppl, but it can only be received if ur open to it and know how it works....

...or something~

I want more than just okay.

We, as humans, can never be happy. There will always be someone out there who has more than us. Someone who has more money, or power, or whatever we feel we are entitled to in our lives. We always want more and we lie, fight, and die for it.

We only want more because it is implanted in our heads that we need more than the next person to validate our successes.

If that makes sense..

Agreed, contentment is true enlightenment.

Learning to manage oneself at the times when one is not happy, is an art.

And this is EXACTLY what I have been currently doing...

In life nothing will be ok.. there is always that something that happens to be 'off'; you never get what you really want and when you do, there's always either a sacrifice at hand which inevitably means that you don't get it all anyway... or that there will always be that silly string attached...

you cannot bring happiness into your life because happiness is already inside of you to begin with... waiting to be found and brought out.

I like it when I think something of your post and read the comments to see some others think of something entirely different to me.
