The Happiness Lie, and How the Pursuit of Happiness Benefits the Elite

Published

on

Happiness occurs when we have pleasant emotions because life is happening the way we want.

Most of us think we are entitled to be happy all the time. However, achieving a constant state of happiness is impossible because usually, life doesn’t happen exactly the way we want. Things we don’t like often pop into our lives every now and then. For this reason, I think the only place we can achieve a constant state of happiness is ‘heaven.’

We have been conditioned to believe that we came into the world 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 all obstacles, and grow into our full potential.

The idea that we came here to be happy has been sold to us by the elite so that we constantly chase happiness. The elite benefit when we chase happiness because this pursuit results in consumerism.

Today, we excessively buy material things because we believe they can make us happy, and as a result, the elite make huge profits because they own most of the companies in the world.

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. Therefore, they make us so obsessed with chasing happiness that we never care about knowing ourselves. They make us focus on useless notions, such as ‘my life is better because I am happier than you.’ For this reason, we take stupid selfies and post them on social media to prove 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 is impossible for us to achieve a constant state of happiness because it’s our nature to be constantly dissatisfied so that we pursue growth. 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 ever pursue a constant state of happiness because it’s impossible to achieve it. Instead, pursue a meaningful life which comes only when you are brave enough to be authentic.

‘You feel separate from happiness and believe that you need to achieve something first to become happy. Then you start pursuing happiness and going after things the world told you will make you happy. But they never do. At the end of your life, you will realize that the pursuit of happiness was a lie.’ – Positively positive

    I agree that we need to separate ourselves from whatever we have been sold about what happiness means and how to get it. Backing away from the “truth” we learn from advertising will help to free us. But then, I think we need to define happiness for ourselves and pursue moments of happiness, rather than a never-ending experience of it. I think it’s too soon to roll credits on what we came here to do, learn or experience, so we might as well reach for happiness. We just can’t reasonably to live there full-time.

    True, we have to pursue moments of happiness. And about what we came here to do, that’s my opinion. I believe we came here to overcome obstacles. I think life is a test

The Problem with the Christian Concept of God

The Problem with the Christian Concept of God

The Biblical God, ‘was a God of wrath and vengeance sitting over the world. This God demanded an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, and only the blind unquestioning, and complete obedience of his creation satisfied this universal autocrat.’ – Manly P. Hall: The Wisdom of the Knowing Ones.

Born in a Christian family, I loved reading the Bible and watching Biblical films – that my mum bought– because I wanted to understand how God works. My interest in the Christian God resulted in me earning an A in Christian Religious Education (CRE), a subject that claimed to expose God’s revelations.

However, I started doubting the Christian God after studying ancient spiritual philosophy and embracing deep thinking. I realized that whatever created the world is a mysterious, impersonal, unknowable force, and therefore, the knowable Christian God was created by the religious leaders of the Christian age.

These leaders believed God behaved like man, and thus created an egotistical God (If you’ve read the Bible, I believe you’ve noticed how the Christian God possesses egoic behavior).

This God forces people to worship him and becomes angry when people worship other gods.

For instance, in Exodus 20, he becomes mad when the Israelites bow down to an idol, for he tells Moses, ‘I have seen these people, and they are stiff-necked people. Now leave me alone so that my anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them.’ Besides this, he promises to throw those who don’t obey him in eternal fire.

He also refers to those who worship him as ‘his chosen ones’, and orders the killing of anyone who attacks these folks. For instance, he orders Saul to eradicate Amalek, an enemy of Israel. According to Samuel 15, he says, ‘Go now, attack Amalek, and deal with him and all that he has. Do not spare him, but kill men and women, children and infants, oxen and sheep, camels and assess.’

Besides being egotistical, another problem I noticed, is that the Christian God lives far away from the earth. He dwells in heaven while we dwell on the earth. This concept of God is responsible for the belief that God is separate from man. It has made people believe they are servants of God, rather than part of him.

Many Christians will be offended by this post, but I don’t care because I’m writing the TRUTH, which will eventually set us free. My Christian readers must know that their concept of God is man-made, and it was created by egoic men who claimed to be spiritual.

The true God, our Creator, is unknowable as Hermes Trismegistus, the wisest man ever, claimed, ‘God is Spirit, which in itself is unknowable and undefinable, but which may be considered and thought of us an Infinite Mind.

No one, including ancient spiritual masters, could define God, and no one will ever know where he came from, what he is, and how he created us. We might only know his principles by studying nature, but we’ll never know he’s personality because we have limited minds. However, we might fully know him when we die because after death, our souls might dissolve into his consciousness.

Is There an Afterlife?

Is There an Afterlife?

I’ve always doubted the idea of an afterlife because I compared death to sleep. However, my beliefs about the afterlife changed after studying ancient cultures and modern religion.

I realized that most ancient cultures, for instance, the Africans, Arabians, and Greeks, believed in an afterlife despite living far apart.

The Greeks believed the soul survived death and went to Hades. Moreover, they believed good Greeks enjoyed life after death while evil Greeks were tormented.’ Also, all African cultures believed their ancestors’ spirits survived death, and they regularly poured libation to them. Some African cultures even performed burial ceremonies and rituals that ensured their beloved ones traveled safely to the spirit world.

Besides ancient cultures, modern religions believe in life after death. For instance, both Muslims and Christians believe we survive death, and our current actions determine our experience after death.  As well, Buddhists believe in the afterlife because death only leads to the end of the body, but not the spirit. They believe that an individual can be reborn after death.

With that in mind, can it be possible that an afterlife doesn’t exist considering that ancient cultures living far away from each other believed in life after death? Did religions and ancient cultures make up the idea of life after death?

I believe the intuitive abilities of ancient/deeply religious folks allowed them to realize the existence of an afterlife, and I support them because I recently discovered that we have a spirit-self besides our egoic and physical self. I think death only eradicates the physical and egoic-self but fails to eliminate the spirit-self.

Also, the fact that we are energy beings forces me to support the idea of an afterlife because as Einstein said, ‘Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.’ Maybe we survive death because it only alters our form by turning us into pure spiritual entities without a body.

Furthermore, my belief in the spirit world forces me to support life after death because this world allows souls to experience life without a human body.

Anyway, we’ll never know if an afterlife truly exists. But we must strive to live life to the fullest because, if life after death exists, we might regret failing to live up to our full potential. Maybe our eyes will open when we die, and we’ll realize that we stressed over trivial things instead of enjoying life in a magical and blessed world.

Peace Be With You
