All of us, human beings, want to be happy and joyous without endlessness. Since we have known the past time and been taugth that the happiness is the best goal of life. And the final way of it is really nothing. It is the great work of life that we try and try to get it as if it is an essentail thing for living on this planet.
You and me are homo sapiens means "the wise man" who just lived in this estimated 200,000 years ago. It is around 10,000 years ago, the human beings begin to develop the small group and usage of naimals for cultivation then led to be complex society.
About 3,000 - 6,000 years ago they established the state as the goverment which led by the empire or the king of the state. After then they enacted laws and religious foundations and cultures, Western and easten ones.
Around 2,000 years ago, the states and religious states began over the world. It is called that urbanized society later called modern age. The result of this age is the advent of philosophy, religion, technology and other cultures.
Today we are more the topmost advance than other living things. We well known how to survive util we can protect and provide food and territory. This reasson led to fight each other and separate such groups into each tribe. Then later we light the war around the world till now.
I feel that all of us want to be happy and seeking it by acumulating money or other belongings. We now are taught that having many money or treasure is a guaruntee for the quality of life. The real goal of lifetime that it is going on its way, rising, going on and ending which it is in conflict the thought.
The life and thought go conflict means that the lifeway goes to end naturally whereas the thought goes to get something. In fact, the life is nothing while the thought is expanding and holding as the will. It seems to be lost the way of truely life especially in an urban society.
When many population is more and more, the competitive war does too. Then we demand peace or happiness in mind and society. Becuase it compensates for the lost thing namely safety, security and peacefulness. So the essential goal for us is "real happiness." What does mean the real happiness?
We realise that happiness comes from the quality of mind which the mind must be on understanding the turth of thing, including life. Almost we have been taught this from religious perspective. Religion has many aspects, depend on God, Nature, Mind, Wisdom and so on. One of it is the mind, it is a source of the happiness genesis.
The big problem is getting into "its interior" the mind. How do we get there? The real meaning inside is the right understanding the world of life. Then is reaching the inside mind, it is truely truth of life. Here is also a level of happiness too. Therefore, happiness is a quality of well understanding and appreciating life that has its value inside.
However, when we get there, "happiness" is not essence of an entire life. It may be an illusion that attracts us to lost the true goal. Most of multitude believe that happiness is an essential goal of life. The happiness is replacement from tradegy of whole life in this existence. Always we are is "suffered" in lifespan but we attempt to get out of it.
Therefore, we should organise our life for well understanding for being better realization and for getting "insight there", peace. At that point we will meet the "natural wisdom" inside us not the happiness that we damand it. Finally I would like asking you following;
1. What life is...

3. How do we get out of problem point of life?
4. What is your personal life, belong to you?
5. The real nature of your life is...
