Yeah I want happiness for real…

What are you postponing that can only be experienced in this moment – the only moment life ever happens? Real happiness doesn’t need any reason. Real happiness doesn’t need something opposite bad to exist. It comes for no reason and without comparison to any other moment in time.

The fact that the mind is a conditioned entity formed by habit makes this kind of strategy the most contra productive there is! The fact that happiness only can experienced in this moment, not in the future, (when that imagined future arrives it will again be only “this moment”) makes it even more silly to constantly create obstacles for happiness.

What is this?

This playful combination of word and image is a purely artistic project inspired by stillness. The text came out of meditation and is sometimes combined with artwork or photo from an artist. Our hope is that it will inspire to a small halt of reflection in the otherwise entertainment-heavy stream of pictures at the internet.
