We are all involved in the pursuit of happiness, whether we like it or not. From our first step to our last breath, we are in the process of manifesting happiness, or in the pursuit of it.
The Pursuit of Happiness is an essential human right. Both Confucius and Socrates insisted that well-being and personal growth were a major purpose of life, and a central goal of education. Thomas Jefferson and the founders of U.S. government recognized this.
“Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness“ is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence. The phrase gives three examples of the unalienable rights which the Declaration says have been given to all humans by their Creator, and which governments are created to protect.
More than two hundred years later, our schools and universities are still neglecting these goals. We are so busy pursuing intellectual skills that we have neglected the pursuit of happiness. We have forgotten Aristotle’s warning: Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.
The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature.Marcus Aurelius
Wisdom is all we need to Find Happiness
Wisdom is the key, so where do we get it?
Doing the right thing making the right decisions and choices are all very commendable but timing is of critical importance a right decision at the wrong time can even be useless. However, knowing when to do the right thing makes the outcome impact-full.
Without the wisdom of right timing great efforts will end up being a colossal waste of human and material resources
Wisdom is applicable to all areas of life therefore as the lord has shown us wisdom is indeed the principle thing therefore it is the core of making and achieving anything meaningful so in all that we do we must seek this priority called wisdom
