Pursuit Of Happiness – SAMSON LAWSON

pursuit of happiness penastory

When we are born, when we start to grow and become adults till when we grow old, there is always this one quest man undergoes at every stage of his life. There is this vacuum to be filled in the heart of man. Man is always on the pursuit for true happiness, man always wants to be at peace with himself and his surroundings. Hence man goes from one place to the other trying to put food on his table, moving from one job to the other trying to get a better paying job believing money will solve this problem; that by this he becomes happier. So I wonder, what is happiness? How can a man be truly happy! This I ponder within myself? A question I find hard to give an answer to!

Is true happiness measured by how fat our bank account is? Is it measured by how influential we are? Or is it measured by how lively we are with our family and loved ones? WHAT IS THE MEASURE OF TRUE HAPPINESS? But as I ask myself this question, it came to my notice that there is something more valuable than gold, more precious than jewels, something money cannot buy. It is priceless! It is the beauty of the capability of true love deposited in each and every one of mankind in which when we express to one another, makes life a better place, hence in the pursuit of happiness man should endeavour to show love and truthfulness to his fellow neighbour. Man should not make money and power his GOD but should be able to live and let live. Be at peace with his inner mind, love his neighbor as himself, have a kind and forgiving spirit, laugh a lot, pray a lot.

Thus by this, I believe man is at peace with himself and his neighbor. Therefore brethren I believe this is the true PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS!
