How far has the world changed in development and happiness.

This article “How far has the world changed in development and happiness.” is about the world we are living in and the way we are living.

development and happiness

There has been a drastic change in the world in terms of development and growth. But however somewhere we remain in the same state as our ancestors lived.

Development figures are growing but the level of human satisfaction, happiness, state of mind is static. Humans now are at the stage where they feel static.

We have accepted the fake world where we see rosy pictures everywhere and knowingly we have no reaction to it. We are confused in our own lives and we remain static without any reaction to true or false, good or bad, fake or real.

“We have grown in some development figures. But our inner happiness is depreciating”

The world seems to be static.

How?

Earlier Our population increased due to lack of family planning after marriage.

Now it increases due to lack of planning before marriage.

“To make the world a lovely place to live, a child should be born out of love and brought up with love”

Earlier People were unhappy because they were poor.

Now people are unhappy even when they are rich.

Earlier people were debtors of zamindars.

Now people are debtors of banks.

Earlier people were not independent because of External Rules.

Now people are not because of Domestic Rules.

Earlier people were poor because of lack of knowledge and technology.

Now people are poor because of lack of compassion.

We have improved our Life Expectancy Ratio.

But our number of Illness have increased.

 

One thing that is increasing along with our development figures is the level of inhumanity. We humans are diminishing.

Poem 

I am in a world of imagination.
Where people live in their own dreams, own choices.

I am in a world of fake.
Where people pretend to be happy, to be your friend.

I am in a world of confusion.
Where people are messed up and still pretend to be a problem solver.

I am in a world of sorrow.
Where people are wretched with legitimate and illegitimate actions.

I am in a world of loneliness.
Where people have more than 100 in their friend list but zero to stand by.

I am in a world of lust.
Where the desire of married and unmarried remains static.

I am in a world of bricks.
With it are made walls not loved ones.

I am in a world of silence.
Where the voice of people in justice or injustice remains static.

-Hilda J. D’souza

Finding Love, Peace, Happiness

 

finding love peace happiness

I find no peace,

Waiting for violence to seize.

I feel the sorrow surrounded.

But In us are some values cultivated;

‘That will rescue us one day’ is my hope

Or ‘lead to havoc someday’ is my fear.

 

We are connected with one god who teaches us to love.

But we have discovered religion and confront with each other.

Moreover we wrangle in our fundamentals,

Thereafter we have differences in our own families,

Remember We fight, “Not with their flesh, but with their principles and opinions.”

“Thought – When you say something really unkind, when you do something in retaliation your anger increases. You make the other person suffer, and he will try hard to say or to do something back to get relief from his suffering. That is how conflict escalates.”- Thich Nhat Hanh

 

I find no love,

Waiting for sense of humanity to evolve.

I feel the scorn surrounded.

But In us are some values cultivated;

‘That will reunite us one day’ is my hope

Or ‘lead to loneliness someday’ is my fear.

 

We are connected wireless

But our souls are disconnected.

We are friends for a moment,

And the other moment we are not.

We are influenced by the gossip and ignore the fact.

We love folks “By clicking like online because it is difficult to love offline”

“Thought – If you love someone, the greatest gift you can give them is your presence. How can you love without being their.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

 

I find no happiness,

Waiting for the smile to shine.

I feel the yearning surrounded.

But In us are some values cultivated;

‘That will make world a happy place’ is my hope.

Or ‘lead to grief someday’ is my fear.

 

We are connected with one objective of being happy,

But we try innovative ways to attain it.

Our ways are self centered, shattering the peace with others.

We are in our journey pretending to be happy, ignoring the sorrow of others.

Remember ‘their is no way to happiness but happiness is the way.’

“Thought – Our notions about happiness entrap us. We forget that they are just ideas. Our idea of happiness can prevent us from actually being happy. We fail to see the opportunity for joy that is right in front of us when we are caught in a belief that happiness should take a particular form. – Thich Nhat Hanh”.
