Kicks

November 23, 2012

Sing along “Kicks just keep getting harder to find…..” – Paul Revere and the Raiders

Are you seeking kicks to fill a void thinking that will bring you happiness?  Or would you find that joy by seeking fulfillment that will bring lasting happiness?  The way to permanently fill a void is by finding fulfillment.  Or is that something you avoid?  We too often look for kicks, fun, and things as the primary goal, thinking that will bring us happiness.  The kicks are like eating a piece of candy.  That brings a fleeting high and then a low, and so we crave another piece of candy.  Nutritionists will tell you to avoid simple carbohydrates (sugars) and for sustained energy eat complex carbohydrates (whole grain starches).  To find a sustained level of joy or fulfillment do something to bring happiness to others.  Then you can have some candy.

“Happiness is the absence of striving for happiness.” – Zhuangzi

 “If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.” – Booker T. Washington

 “It is only for the sake of those without hope that hope is given to us.” – Walter Benjamin
