The Looks Of Happiness

To some people, the appearance of happiness is enough.
They convince themselves that by conforming to the actions, behaviors and replies of people we think are happy, the die is cast and there is nothing else to hope for.

These attitudes are largely conveyed by social models, themselves feeding and feeding on the products of the media-cultural sphere.
It should be noted that such simulators are animated by an interior climate which can be twofold. They oscillate between these two terms or combine them with alternating prominent features.
– An abyssal despair: pretending to be happy is the closest state to happiness that can ever be possible for us to invest: there is nothing better to hope for. Happiness is always faked, so let’s fake it.

-An abyssal fear: their strategy, therefore, is to stay on the surface, in the thickness of appearances and while displaying the most credible of alibis (I am perfectly happy, look, each of my attitudes proves it to you), they evade to the quest for the real meaning of existence, as well as to any prospect of authentic fulfillment.
Sometimes this type of non-approach (distance from life) can constitute a pattern of family history.

Two individuals, each one traumatized in their own way, come together and reinforce each other in the non-necessity of digging into the crust of everyday life. So they stay together shivering in cold winds.

But what happens when one of them decides to put down their damaged shell and investigate what is happening around ?

Infused with a spirit of clairvoyance, he perceives that life spreads further than the perimeter of appearances where it was initially circumcised.
This person will have to redouble in courage to instill in their partner the desire to put down the shell of appearances and not to give in to the blows of doubt they will not fail to feel when each step towards depth is accompanied with a flurry of unbearable tremors.

You can never free others on their behalf.

The firming of faith in its free and multi-dimensional nature may inspire the one left on deck in the pouring rain, a conventional smile upon their face, chattering with the chatter around

One step after another, they will gain confidence in what they did not know some time before. While knowing that they do not really clear anything.
They just returns to the known.

    1. I do not know.
      But I do believe in a level of happiness which has nothing to do with froth.
      So much so that it should not be named happiness,
      So much so that it is better left unnamed.

  1. I was on the evergenof calling it ‘true’ happiness,
    But stopped short of doing son as I remembered your conflicting relation with this adjective.
