I do not want to be Happy !
Once there was group of people in a conference session
Host asked a question to the Audience- Do you want to be Happy ?
People who want to be Happy, Please raise your hand
Entire Audience raised their hand.
Some even raised both of their hands showing their keenness on how much they want to be happy
Then Host noticed that there is one person in the audience who has not raised his hand.
This person was in his forties and having a dazzling smile on his faced with sparkling eyes.
So, host called him in the front and asked him
Do you not want to be Happy
He replied- Yes. I dont want to be happy
Host was curious to know- but why you dont want to be happy
He said because by wanting to be happy I will create unhappiness in my mind
This statement puzzled the host more and now he was more confused
So, he asked the man that can you really enlighten us with what you mean when you don’t to be happy.
He said when all other people in the forum said that they want to be happy they created an expectation from themselves.
Now, this expectation if not fulfilled will lead to unhappiness
In my case, I am not creating any expectation from myself by not wanting to be happy.
Since there are no expectations I have kept from myself.
So, I am happy whereas others who are creating expectations from them will soon become unhappy if there expectations are not met.
Host was amazed to know the answer and entire audience erupted in applause to know true wisdom about happiness.
