Happiness is in the present, and present is always moving. Trying to catch and lock on to the happiness, means trying to capture some particular moment, which is then impossible because time flows forward.
It’s easy to wish for eternal happiness.
It’s easy to remember the good old times.
It’s hard to have to faith that the future present moments are at least as awesome, if not more as the present.
And the curve isn’t only straight upwards curve either. There are ups and downs. However, thanks to the increased self-understanding and understanding of the reality, we will get more of the life that which we want.
If we live through our virtues, we have the potential to live always happier moments.
Live through your virtues!
