Is Happiness a conservative, status-quo concept?
The question that comes up for me is Why? Why should happiness matter to me so much? I know, experience and recall the scientific, sociological, emotional and spiritual reasons. I find these everywhere I look. Yet, no matter where in the world any one person is, the topic of happiness is one that pops itself in thoughts, ideas, feelings and conversations. So, Why? Why does it matter to each one of us so much? I will offer my reason. It is just one reason... It may mean something or nothing, but for me, my reason to seek happiness is because with it I get to enjoy having fun while living. I get to enjoy laughter, eating delicious food, having conversations... and on and on and on. And, again Why? comes up again for me. Why should THAT matter...? (yes, we could go ad nauseum! ;)) But, it matters, because it simply does. And, I have found that the moment I completely come to terms with the fact that it does matter and I DO care about how I feel, what I think, how my health is and what I seek, it is then that I actually see the enjoyment in what is occurring in that particular moment. It is then that I reach the conclusion that I am willing to do absolutely anything in order to maintain and sustain that happiness. It is then that I stop riding the waves and drowning in the depths. It is then that I release all worry and anxiety and fully live. It is then that I find true happiness. Have you ever thought about why it matters to you?

Raghava KK: My 5 lives as an artist
Life as an artist/creative person can be very challenging. Ideas float in the head without stop and with that also comes others opinions and ideas. With creativity also comes the highest highs and the lowest lows. The euphoria one feels one minute literally transforms into a pit of despair that has been known to leave deep paralytic scars. It is by moving through and realizing the enormity of the scope of feelings that the human can indeed experience what inspiration springs up. So often our environment makes it such that it stifles the potential of children by erroneously guiding their emotional and mental path down a path that can (and in many cases has) all but erased all spark of creativity. Raghava, thank you for such an inspiring and amazing talk!! Cheers. :D
