Some of us, we always associate happiness with objects and quantitative number. We always link or tied our happiness to something, someone, somewhere…As such, we might spend our life to pursuit “something” for us to attach, to satisfy and enjoy “Happiness” for a short while. Of course, a short while of happiness can’t satisfy, so we spend more and more time to chase, to look, to attach and this cycle will keep going on and on…. We are not aware, not willing to slow down, of course say no to “stop” to contemplate what is the root of happiness. We believe strongly that only “objects” and “numbers” can bring happiness.
We love to play games with Miss Mimi, her favorite is to catch the string. She’ll keep running to chase the string instead of look for the people who is holding the string. This make me to think that some of us, we are like Miss Mimi, keep chasing for happiness and totally not aware “What is the root of happiness?”
Do spend time to contemplate about it.
