Is happiness really truly elusive? Can you really be happy without fearing that something bad will happen or that you will end up jinxing it?
I know that when I am truly happy, deep down I always fear about how long this happiness will last or what bad news will come my way to blow up my happy world and shatter it into pieces. I always tell myself never to get extremely happy about anything because behind that happiness lies a lot of negative energy.
Even if you get happy about passing exams with a certain percentage or getting that job you know that someone else will be feeling jealous or have something bad to say about it. If you are happy about a certain event taking place, you get that feeling that there might be a turn of events where it might get cancelled. Does this tie in with karma? If something good happens then something bad is also bound to happen?
When or where can we find happiness and not be fearing that it will not last? Do we just have to take it as it is and live for that moment until it goes away or can we always be happy?
