We’ve been conditioned to believe that we came here to be happy and that our main purpose in life is to pursue happiness. This is A LIE folks. Look around you, study history, and you’ll realize that THE CREATOR never brought us here to be constantly happy. Instead, The Creator brought us here to surmount obstacles and grow into our full potential.
Today, we excessively buy material things because we believe they will make us happy, and as a result, the elite make huge profits because they own a large percentage of the world’s companies.
Anyway, besides making us spenders, the pursuit of happiness also benefits the elite because it prevents us from discovering our true nature. The elite know that they won’t manage to control us if we discover who we truly are. For this reason, they trick us into believing that happiness is the main goal so that we focus on chasing happiness instead of trying to discover our true nature. They then encourage useless notions – such as ‘my life is better because I am happier than you,’ – which make us constantly post selfies on social media to show our ‘friends’ that we are constantly happy.
Little do we know that no one is constantly happy because we were conditioned to be dissatisfied with what we have. For example, we are always happy when we get a job, but after a certain period, we get bored with the repetitive routine that we can’t wait to be out of our offices. Also, we are always happy when we buy something. However, after a certain period, we become used to it and start looking for other things to buy.
It’s thus impossible for us to achieve a constant state of happiness because it’s our nature to be constantly dissatisfied. As Mark Manson puts it in The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck,‘We have evolved to always live with a certain degree of dissatisfaction and insecurity because it’s the mildly dissatisfied and insecure creature that’s going to do the most work to innovate and survive.’
That being said, understand that it’s okay to be unhappy and never pursue a constant state of happiness because it’s impossible to achieve. Instead, pursue a meaningful life which only comes when you live authentically.
