It is never-ending debate that finding God is the purpose of life or purpose in life is to find happiness. I say that God is Happiness. He is pleasure. God is the Joy that never go away from your soul. So we should try to acquire that Happiness. No one else other than you can give it to you; so you must continuously have to cultivate it in yourself or in your life.
In fact, we must be happy, because God has given us this wonderful world. But enjoyment is not the purpose of life. Souls are brought into this world, so as to make use of birth to liberate them from the unaware state they had been within.
A person born in this world must use the opportunity to free himself from Samsara and achieve Moksha according Hinduism purpose of Life
Even if life gave you at one time everything you wanted — Health, wealth, power and friends — after a while you would again become dissatisfied and need something more. But there is one thing that can never become out of date to you its joy itself. Happiness that is delightfully varied, though its essence is changeless, is the inner experience everyone is seeking. Lasting, ever new joy is God. Finding this Joy within, you will find it in everything without. In God you will tap the Reservoir of perennial, unending bliss.
There is nothing wrong in looking for to be happy in life. There is nothing wrong in being cheerful and positive.
Secrets of Lasting Happiness
Happiness depends to some extent upon certain external conditions, but mainly upon your mental attitudes. If you don’t choose to be happy no one can make you happy. And if you choose to be happy, no one can make you unhappy. Do not hold responsible God for that!
If God has not given us freedom to use our own will, then we could blame the God. When we are unhappy, even God has given us that freedom. It is we who make our life what it is today.
Change your thought if you wish to change yourself. Since you are only responsible for your thoughts, and only you can change them. Therefore, start now to think only those thoughts, which will bring you health and happy family life.
Happiness lies in making others happy, in leaving self-interest to bring happiness to others.
Giving happiness to others is extremely important to have our own happiness, and a most satisfying experience. Some people think only of their own family: “Us four and no more.” Others think only of self: “How am I going to be happy?” But these are the very persons who do not become happy!
When you came in this world, you cried and everyone else smiled. So live your life in such way, when you leave this world, everyone else will cry, but you will be smiling. The more you depend upon conditions outside yourself for happiness, the less happiness you will experience.
Every day, do some good things to help others, even if it is only a nothing. If you want to love God you have to love people. People are God’s children.
