Happy and meaningful life

Dear brothers and sisters,

Everyone wants to live a happy life. Happiness is a thing everyone wants.

Happiness can be a perfect lover, a happy family, a good friend, a lot of money, a dream job, a high diploma… Happiness can also be beautiful rivers, forests, animals… in the land you want. Happiness can also be political regime or civilization in the land you want.

Most people think if they have all kinds of happiness, they’ll be full of happiness. If they lack one or many kinds of happiness, their life will not be complete. So most people try to have many kinds of happiness.

Really?

There are so many people who learn and do what they like, or live with their dream (such as singers) – apparently they look happy – but then they commit suicide.

Happy things hardly fill the void in your heart. This is the reason that many people have all things they want, but they still feel lonely, and their heart has the void that they desire to fill but cannot.

Dear brothers and sisters,

We should live a meaningful life. We should feel our life is meaningful. Feeling meaningful is more important than feeling happy. A meaningful life makes us happy, but a happy life doesn’t make us to feel meaningful.

So, how to live a meaningful life?

Serve people.

When you serve yourself, your life is unhappy and meaningless. And when you serve people, your life is happy and meaningful.

When you serve your house, your name, your career…, your life is unhappy and meaningless. And when you serve the poor, your country, the world…, your life is happy and meaningful.

Serving people makes your life happy and meaningful. You’ll not need all kinds of happiness to feel happy. You may not have any kind of happiness (a perfect lover, a lot of money, a dream job…), but if you serve people, your life is happy and meaningful.

Serving people makes your heart full.  The void in your heart is gone for good.

Have a nice day.
