The Pursuit of Happiness

A reflection

To pursue is to strive.

To be happy is to be tranquil

To pursue happiness you must endure suffering.

Suffering is a truly human experience.

Does one pursue suffering for happiness?

Is the very goal to suffer?

Then why pursue? Why not create?

For if happiness is a choice, then what are you pursuing other than suffering?

To choose happiness is to choose that suffering is tranquil.

A tranquil soul can be manifested.

So, create your happiness and transform suffering into tranquility.
