The physical feeling of ‘Happiness’, comes about from neurological processes within our bodies. It is a result of one of four hormones being released, upon receiving external information that our senses deliver to the nervous system.
The question then arises as to why do people expect to find happiness in others? When the controlling factor to produce happiness, is born within the internal environment of an individual.
Why does a person often believe that happiness will be achieved by placing expectations on other peoples actions or via the acquisition of material objects or reaching perceived status and acclaim?
Society’s conditioning from a young age, has placed a great importance and responsibility on individuals, to make ‘other people’ happy, which in turn results in the belief that ‘other people’ have the role to make us happy.
The reality is, that happiness is accumulated by an individuals own perception of the external world and how we choose to interpret it.
The human body reacts to our thoughts and our choices. Once we become actively aware of this, we can be happy wherever we are. The destination doesn’t impact the state of happiness, but the state of our minds effects our destination.
