Happiness is pleasant yet tasteless
Unhappiness is unpleasant yet tasteful
The below is an extract from my diary in September 2017
"Being happy is the most in-sensitive state of mind"
"Being happy manes feeling nothing"
Happiness is lukewarm
Tragedy is far more vivid, far more keen, far more lively, far more human
What we're afraid the most is boredom
And we do whatever we can do in order to avoid boredom
Theft, addiction, drug, cheat, voyeur, murder......, all is caused by boredom
Every single minute, we want to feel something
Even if it's pain, we still want to feel it
Because feeling something, that is, feeling one's own emotion, is the most strong, fresh, dazzling sign of "Being alive", "Living in the present moment" & "Being human"
Feeling nothing is unbearable
Happiness is unbearable
because pain, suffering, ache, sadness, loneliness, namely, "unhappiness" exists
& because they usually last long,
we can appreciate "happiness", that comes to us not so often
& that is very ephemeral
