97. Happily achieving your goals versus, being happy, only after you achieve your goals
Most of the times people think that if and when they will achieve their goal (get a better salary, buy that car or house, get married, write that book, climb that mountain, create that business etc) then they will be happy.
Nevertheless achieving any goal may require that during the process you are already happy. Maybe happiness is not only a goal it may be a pre-requisite in achieving goals. Happiness may even have the effect that your physical body has higher frequency (the spin of the protons, neutrons, electrons of the body is faster). Therefore happiness is a paramount requirement in life. Happiness may seem a chimera, and a ghost that cannot be targeted directly. That is why it is easier achieved indirectly. Especially when trying to give happiness to other people. Happiness may be superficial or deeper. Choosing to experience a sequence of positive rather than negative emotions in daily life, is by itself not only cheerfulness but also happiness. Therefore our knowledge of changing our emotions is very close to our ability of being happy.
For practical people acting the desired actions already brings happiness. For emotional people expressing their emotions to beloved friends and partners brings happiness. And for intellectual people like scientists, discovering their long-sleeked scientific explanation or proof, or writing the right code, and sequence of thoughts, brings happiness. To people oriented to power, having more followers or succeeding in determining the future fate of themselves or close people, brings happiness.
Finally happiness is greater, the more is the psychic development of the individual and the civilization.
Peace of mind , planetary prosperity and happiness comes also when we feel that we accomplish gradually our true goals. And there are minor and major goals in life. We might say that our existence has no other goal than to exist. Or that we may have many different goals, according to the scale of relevance in our existence. But one of the most beautiful and meaningful goals in life is to develop more of our soul consciousness. So all other minor goals like social success, money, fame, knowledge , creativity etc are to serve this major goal of developing more of our soul consciousness
