Happiness

This post was originally published on this site

Are we in love with the idea of happiness
while forgetting to feel it 
when it presents itself in all 
its glorious joy?
Just in the way that some are in love with the
concept of being in love,
and add so many conditions that love itself
cannot find its way through the maze...
Being in love with the idea of happiness
rather than simply experiencing it
means that it is lost in the shuffle,
thrown to the curb in the onward search
for just the right time
and the right place
and the right circumstances,
which never appear because
they do not exist.
The perfect moment to be happy is 
now.
Not in the reconstructed memories of a past age 
nor in the future sometime,
when the stars align, and 
the numbers in your bank account have met your
arbitrary goal.
Be here now.
Be happy now.
