  1. Peace

    Peace In complete harmony.

    How many of you actually feel like you are a peaceful person. Are you happy most of the time? What is the most effective way to remain happy. Also do you have the love you wish for? Not as in the love of a single person but do you feel that you are loved and give out live just as much?

    Are you happy most of the time?
    -I would have to say yes and no. I try to be as strong (refering to my mind not the physical asspect) as possible but sometimes i break.

    What is the most effective way to remain happy?
    -Ive heard many times that you sacrifce what you love. Sometimes its hard to understand this. I admit that i love the feeling of having money in my pocket. It makes me feel responsible and part of society. But when i give people my money, it makes me feel even happier. That i was able to make them happy. I guess thinking of positives and sacrificing the things you love is the best way in my opinion.

    Do you feel that you are loved?
    -Yes, i was almost friendless in elementary school and middle school. I have found by showing people you are happy and just talking to them makes them happy and you happy. In this aspect i feel that i am loved. People know me, and respect me not always for my actions but rather my thoughts (it also helps being Jesus ;))

    Do you feel that you give just as much love out?
    -Yes, i try to love everyone. Someone could hurt me but i would love them. Not loving them would show how weak i am. Love is what webs everyones mind together. And everyone knows a bet works better with less holes. :)

    What are your answers?
    And remember: Overgrow the world with Peace and Love
    and: only YOU can prevent forest fires :)
     
  2. I believe that I am a very happy person. It's interesting. I don't consider myself Christian, but this year I decided to participate in Lent because I love the challenge. I decided to try and better myself by overcoming my negative tendencies and trying to be more happy, less stressed, and less negative. I first tried looking at song lyrics I liked when ever I felt negative. (I carried them everywhere) Well, that didn't work very well. All my attemps failed. But, one succeded that wasn't really an attempt at all. I read this book called, Johnny Got His Gun, a big war protest book in the 60s. It didn't change my life right after I finished it, but a couple of weeks later, I couldn't stop thinking about certaing things in the book. I couldn't help but see the message. It was saying that life is the most important thing is the world, and it doesn't matter how bad it may be, it's still life. You're still living. This really changed my attitude and my outlook on life. Now, I'm pretty happy all the time. Sometimes I get sad, but never angry, and never frustrated or really stressed out. It's like a ton had been lifted off my shoulders. Now I find that everyday is worth living and that there is no reason to be unhappy. So, yeah I guess I'm pretty peaceful. And to answer your other questions it helps to feel loved and to give love. I passed out some little peices of candy at my school to strangers and called them "random acts of kindness" that really made my day. Sharing my day to day happiness with others only hightens the experience. PEACE

    What is the most effective way to remain happy?
    -Drink coke

    Do you feel that you are loved?

    That is wonderful. That you are not a Christian, but you are willing to take up some aspects up the Christian religion to better yourself. :)
     
  5. I'm a rather bitter person. I give out love to the people I love but that's pretty much it. And I don't really recieve any love back. Maybe that's why I'm bitter. Wow, what a terrible cycle my life is. I should try to find people that love me.
     
  6. I agree with givepeaceachance, being alive just makes me happy. The fact that I was blessed enough to experience this life, makes me happy. Of course things are going to agitate me, and sadden me. But that's life. You'll never remain happy the whole time your alive. If you do then I say your lying to yourself. See happiness and sadness are like the yin and yang to life. There are times of sadness, there are times of happiness. But even in times of sadness, you can still have a level of happiness. I'm always happy in my head!! Just not in my tears, or my cries. Well yeah. I wish I could say more but I've said all I can think I could say. Yeah I was planning on reading Johnny Got His Gun, isn't it about a armless, legless, deaf, blind mute?

    I would rather not disagree with you. Because as a person I am sure that you are more knowledgable than I. But i would like to say that yes you can be sad at some times, but as long as your thinking positive, you will remain happy, even though you are sad.
    -Peace

    By being true to yourself, and also by sharing love with other people!
    Do you feel that you are loved?
    Yes, by most people.

    I think i give more love then i get. I try to share my love with everyone, reguardless of who they are. And a lot of people aren't like that, and many people hate people who are different from them. Maybe that is why I'm so happy for of the time, because I choose to love instead of hate.

  14. Peace

    Peace In complete harmony.

    That is true, but I think that instead of forgetting your problems, you realize what happened. Don't dwell upon the negative actions taken. But at the same time remember what happened so that this will not happen again.

    This way you realize your imperfections but it doesn't get you down.

    Just my thoughts.

    -Peace

    Am I happy?


    "The deeper you go, the higher you fly."

    I wouldn't have it any other way, I guess, when I go down I go far down, but when I'm up...it is pure and light and high with life. So I will take the bad to appreciate the good.

    It IS getting better all the time...you've got to admit it...

    Is the love I take equal to the love I make?

    I try to give love more than anything else. It is my highest pursuit and strivance. I can only hope it gets somewhere before it's contaminated by regret and fear.
